Jeff offers Ozzy the opportunity to give up the immunity necklace. Ozzy: "Ha." Jeff reminds the players how the immunity idol will work if necessary. Sundra votes. Becky votes. Yul votes. Adam votes. Ozzy votes. Nate votes. Parvati votes. Candice votes. Jonathan votes. It's interesting that they didn't reveal a single vote, but if you think about it, it sort of had to be that way. Every vote gave away something about how it was going to go -- it wasn't clear whether Aitu would pick Jonathan or Nate as a target; it wasn't clear whether Raro would pick Yul or someone else.
Jeff heads off to tally. He returns with the votes. The first vote is for "Yuehl." I'm sorry, "Yuehl"? That is...that is very inventive. ["Maybe Nate is a big fan of Oscar-winning actress Mercedes Ruehl." -- Wing Chun] Next vote: "Yule." Happy Holidays! Then Nate. Spelled correctly! Then Yul -- spelled correctly! So it's 3 votes for Yul/Yuehl/Yule, and one for Nate. Then another one for Nate. Ruh-roh! Then Nate again, so now it's 3-3. Adam strokes his chin. I assume the concern on Raro is basically...why Nate? Aitu is made up of good strategists. Why isn't their target Jonathan? Or Adam? What does this mean? Jeff reveals another Christmas vote for "Yule." So it's 4-3 Yul. Now? Nate. And the final vote goes to...Nate. Yul leans back in his seat in relief. Parvati's eyes go wide, and she bites down on her fist. Adam rubs his forehead. Hulk sure plan good! What go wrong? Candice looks over at Jonathan, trying for "hurt." Jonathan raises his eyebrows to the sky and looks upward for a minute while pursing his lips. It's like he's going to say, "Hey, is anybody else thirsty? I could really use a drink. Anyone?" Nate's torch is snuffed. Take that, "nancy boy." Jonathan and Yul exchange a look, which Yul punctuates with a little nod.
Jeff says that, based on everyone's reaction, it looks like "the impact was significant." He sends them home.
Nate's farewells are about as ungracious as farewells get, telling Jonathan to kiss his ass and so forth, and (remarkably) claiming that Jonathan "sold [him] out," despite the fact that Nate never had any allegiance to Jonathan to begin with, so I have no idea what that's supposed to be about. I'm sure Nate knows.
Next week: Candice cannot believe people don't feel like feeding her lazy ass anymore. Jonathan says "bollocks." Indeed.
