Tom walks up to Amanda and J.T. while picking at his belly button, which he seems to enjoy doing. I don't enjoy seeing it, so I wish he'd stop. Tom starts in with his pitch, saying that he and Colby are better alliancemates for J.T., Amanda, and James than Cirie and Candice. Maybe for J.T., since Tom is the only other person who has won this game in their tribe, but surely not for James and especially Amanda, who would then be the only woman in the alliance and thus seen as the weakest and easiest boot with virtually no chance against the men if it came down to individual immunity. Also, why isn't anyone discussing the uselessness and general unpleasantness that is Rupert? Get rid of him! COME ON, people! Tom continues that he knows they're all concerned about his immunity idol and he wishes the "stain" of it wasn't on him. Uh huh. More like he wishes he'd been able to get the idol without anyone seeing him. J.T. asks for Tom's word that he won't play the idol against his own alliance if they let him on, which Tom readily agrees to, saying they can play it "as a committee." He even offers to give it to one of them if it'll help them trust him. Sucker Amanda interviews that this makes her think that Tom might be a good person to have in their alliance after all, despite the fact that she knows he targeted her early on. James walks up and asks what's going on. They say they don't trust Candice, who they see as conniving and, according to Amanda, "scatter-brained," which I don't think means what Amanda thinks it means. James repeats his "I just want to win, y'all" refrain and suddenly Amanda is agreeing to align with and trust Tom, who then gives her a big hug. Tom interviews that he appears to have been successful at forming a new majority alliance, although he's not too stupid or naïve to put all of his trust into his new alliancemates. "We'll see," he says.
