John is next. Li'l Russell laughs at him for thinking he was telling the truth. Meanwhile, Mick, Brett and Natalie do not then think to themselves that they might want to doubt if Li'l Russell told them the truth. John says that he was in a tribe full of "idiots who can't process things properly" so it's not his fault he lost. Okay,
asshole. Sorry, Grandma! I mean "jerk." Dave Ball is next, and they insist on calling him by his stupid nickname. Natalie says he was "hilarious." Dave Ball says he knows he isn't the easiest person to get along with and has accepted that he will be "misunderstood" because of that. John might have thought that Dave Ball and the rest of Galu were idiots, but Dave Ball is obviously the most self-aware and possibly intelligent of the bunch. Too bad that didn't translate into success in this game or even trying for it. Then it's time for Monica, who Li'l Russell says was "the fakest person here." "Well ... " Natalie trails off as Brett says that Monica "wanted to go out fighting." Monica says her competitors in challenges were "well-apped," so apparently she thought she was playing this game against iPhones? Weird. But then she realized she had inner strength or something, and that's worth a million dollars to her. Except I'm sure she'd rather have the million dollars.
And then it's time for Shambo. Brett says that Foa Foa owe their lives in this game to her. Natalie agrees. Li'l Russell stays quiet because he can't bring himself to give credit to anyone but himself. Shambo cries about how her tribe treated her terribly and she was a victim and that was an "eye-opening experience." "Lift people up. Don't tear 'em down," she says. I agree, although I'm really not sure how much tearing down Galu really did to Shambo and how much of it is in her head and part of her obvious victim complex. [Also, is Survivorthe place to go to be elevated by others? If someone is lifting you up, they're likely planning to pull the ladder out from under you. - Zach] And finally, there's Jaison. Mick says good things about Jaison, and that they'll soon be voting for him for senator. Since Barack Obama became president, black people becoming politicians is the new "he's so well-spoken." Jaison says he's proud that he didn't quit this horrible experience and he's stronger than he thought. With that, the four throw the fallen contestants' name plates and masks in the fire pit and we watch them stand around it with their hands on their hips from different angles for like ten minutes.
