Dead Russell is up next. Brett calls him "the heart and soul of the Galu tribe" and the reason why Galu did so well. They probably figured it out once Galu basically fell apart as soon as he left. Mick says he "hated" to see Russell go but "hoped" to see him go, too. Does Mick have anything nice to say about anyone? Russell says being medically removed from this game totally sucks as we get to see yet another replay of when he died. Hey, wait! What's up with the shot of Probst there? This is Russell's montage! Keep out! Anyway, Russell says if it wasn't for his wife and daughters then he would have rather died on Survivor. Which he did, so, congrats Mr. Deathwish! Now go drink some water so you don't die again. The last pre-merge contestant is Liz, who Natalie calls "physical" and "a rock star." They probably could have used her against Brett, then. Oops! Too late now. Liz says this game taught her to be a patient person.
And then there's Erik. Li'l Russell says nothing about Erik as a person, only how Galu getting rid of him helped Li'l Russell. Brett says Erik was a "fierce competitor." "Almost ... psycho?" Mick adds. Very respectful, Mick. At least Erik had a personality. Erik says he was betrayed by his tribe but then vindicated when they were voted out one-by-one. Also, they put in the shot of him getting clotheslined by the clothesline. That's not nice, editors. And then, random Kelly, who makes a series of confused expressions in her montage as she voiceovers that in this game, the men seem to always be terrified of the women, and that's why she was taken out. Ha ha! If they had targeted a guy instead, Brett wouldn't be there to win all those immunity challenges and possibly screw Foa Foa over in the end. Brett says Laura was "such a strong competitor" and she reminds us that despite her incredibly advanced age of 39, she's the hottest shit in town. She says she's "re-stereotyping the grandma" as she reminds us that she is one. Seriously, Laura? Being a 39-year-old grandma is not necessarily something to be proud of. Oh, and speaking of grandmas, mine is reading this right now! Hi, Grandma!
