The tribe arrives at Tribal Council and the jurors pour in. Monica is wearing too much makeup, just like I knew she would. She and Laura are going to look terrible at the reunion show. Their faces will weigh an extra ten pounds each. Probst addresses Li'l Russell first, saying there isn't a "true Galu" member left for Foa Foa to vote out since Brett has the necklace. "I'm a traitor," Shambo says. Probst agrees. If Shambo was a hot young man, though, I'll bet Probst would be all over Shambo's strategic move that bettered her position in the game. Also, let's not forget that Shambo initially voted for Jaison when the tribes first merged while everyone else was voting for Erik, so she was more true to Galu than anyone else, really. Oh, and finally, Galu treated her like shit so they kind of deserve this. "Shambo betrayed everybody on the jury," Probst says. Um, no, actually, she didn't. She didn't betray Erik or John, certainly, nor would I say she betrayed Laura since their feelings about each other were well-known. Oh, and while she knew that Li'l Russell was going to play the idol that got Kelly out, we don't know that everyone else knows that, as she voted for Li'l Russell that night. I really think that Galu's reasons for not voting for Shambo if she made it to the Final Three have very little to do with her betraying them and much more to do with the fact that they don't like her, think she's stupid and/or crazy, and doesn't deserve to have made it this far in this game, let alone win a million dollars. Thus: shut up, Probst. Natalie agrees that Shambo is a good person to take to the Final Three.
Probst asks Li'l Russell how much of a factor Shambo's "loyalty" is tonight. You mean the loyalty you just shat on when you talked for five minutes about how she betrayed everyone in this game before kissing Jesus for thirty pieces of silver? But now she's loyal? Make up your stupid mind, Probst. Li'l Russell says he trusts Shambo as much as he does Natalie, Mick, and Jaison. Probst congratulates him on making a "big statement" (then again, I think most statements Li'l Russell makes are big simply because they're coming out of someone so small) and asks what criteria he's using for tonight's vote. Li'l Russell says he's thinking in terms of the Final Three and who is a jury threat. Probst asks Jaison if he agrees. Jaison says he does, and that he wants to get rid of the people who can beat him in the end. Unless it's Li'l Russell, in which case he won't bother.
