It's time for Tribal Council, and Erin comes in wearing a breast-minimizing black tank top. Mark Burnett will have to have a talk with her. Ken is wearing mismatched navy and black. Peachy spouts that Tribal Council is a place for the players to account for their actions: he asks if the first nine were voted out because of their behavior. Ted makes no friend of Erin or Ken by claiming that so far people have been ejected based on their prior actions. Although Ken and Erin manage to maintain straight faces, Brian looks at Ted with a "What are you thinking?" expression on his face. Ted thinks it will get harder to play the game so purely because when money is a motivating factor, people begin to think more selfishly.
Jake adds that they've let strong people go -- and Ken and Erin exchange a look -- because of their actions, but that people are taking a different approach at this point in the game; he's personally focused on allying with another person toward a win-win end because that's how the game is played.
For the second week in a row, Clay sputters the "Outwit, outplay, outlast!" motto, and says that everyone has his or her own strategy to get to the top; he's sure that they're all doing "their fair share."
Penny thinks it's okay to be deceitful, depending on when and how -- the when being "always" and the how being "every way possible." She hopes that most people have been honest and faithful to her, but she knows it's a game.
Finally, Jan points out that there's more sneaky whispering around the camp, before Peachy reveals that because the challenge occurred so late in the evening, they'd only had a brief amount of time to return to camp to collect their personal items. He asks if any of them have something to say, and Jake pipes right up. He calls out the members of Chuay Gahn for claiming in the last Council to vote against people based on their performance. He says that although he and Penny both feel vulnerable, he feels -- in a performance-based vote -- that he holds up as well as or better than any of the others. Clay commences with the crazed eye-rolling in response, as Jake concludes by claiming he's curious to "see if that performance record still holds up." Peachy asks if anyone wants to respond, and no one does, not even to say, "I prefer to respond directly to Jake. With my vote."
