Time to vote. Jeff reminds them that they're supposed to vote for someone, not against anyone. Steph votes first. Janu votes for Tom, saying it's because she had this "incredible experience" because Tom chose her on the first day. Gregg votes. Caryn votes. Coby votes for Katie, saying he got more "honesty" from Katie. A-Jenn votes. Ian votes. Jeff thanks the jury for their work, and he goes and gets the votes. He tells them that, of course, there will be no vote-reading now, only later. He leaves.
For some reason, we are spared the absurd Where In The World Is Jeff Probst business where he whizzes across the ocean on a waterproof moped or something, and he just plain walks into the studio in New York where the live finale will take place. I kind of feel robbed. He steps up to the podium. Everyone cheers. "Let's get to it," he says. If the audience doesn't shut up, though, it won't happen. Tom and Katie are both waiting patiently to hear. Winner gets a million bucks! And a car! And let's freaking get going, dude. Takes four votes to win.
First vote, Tom. Second vote, Katie. Third vote, Tom. Fourth vote, Tom. Fifth vote, Tom. And that will do it. Aw, that's cool. Despite making me mad in this episode, Tom is a really good guy, and at least he played an awesome, strong game, and it's always good to have a guy with an awesome, strong game win, because it means the jury didn't entirely vote like they sometimes do and like I thought they might, spiting the person who really beat them by rewarding a much less impressive player. Tom and Katie hug. She is not surprised. He runs out to hug his family. Back at the firehouse, there is cheering. The rest of the dead Survivors walk in behind the jury, stretching to obtain relevance. Jeff talks about the unexpected ending, Ian's stupid deal, and other mysteries, like lame-ass Ulong and the way it was eaten. Just come back soon, people. We've got a reunion left to go.
