Li'l Russell announces who he thinks he's getting votes from: Shambo, Dave Ball, Brett, John, and Erik. All men except for Shambo. "I am another millionaire," he says. I still don't think he's a millionaire the first time. Real millionaires don't brag like that and can keep their mouths shut about it if they have to. Mick and Natalie just stay quiet and let him speak. He thinks they're both just rolling over and giving him the win, but he doesn't really know what goes on in people's heads. He could probably make a good educated guess, though. I can't believe I had to watch this guy all season and now I have to watch him win.
The Final Three burn Galu's shelter down and set off for the Final Tribal Council. Li'l Russell interviews that if Mick or Natalie beat him, it would be "a shame" and "wouldn't make any sense" because he played this game better, strategically, than anyone else this season and perhaps in the history of the show. This season? Sure, but it's not like he had any competition. But in the history of the show? Whether he wins or not, no way. He made deals with people he knew he'd betray that he didn't even have to make at all (Brett, lying to Jaison at the end) and then sent them to the jury where they'd have a chance to vote against him winning the million dollars. He "strategically" told everyone that he was a millionaire and that he had the immunity idol -- twice! And then again to John a THIRD TIME! You can't be the best strategic player in the history of this game if you can't keep your mouth shut. "I've accomplished the impossible out here all by myself," he says. Meanwhile, just last season a tribe of just three people managed to overthrow a majority tribe post-merge by using a similar technique to Li'l Russell's ... except they did it first (and others did it before them in even earlier seasons), so Foa Foa's four-way minority alliance triumph really isn't all that special. Li'l Russell says he's going to go into this Tribal Council, make a great speech, and win it all.
