Jeff can't get enough of the love talk, so he asks Alicia for "the straight scoop." "Okay, these two are...you can't even get between 'em," Alicia says. And that's the point -- they've already (stupidly) given it away to the tribe, so why be so cagey? Like they're fooling someone? "Seriously, they're very close," Alicia says. Jeff now gets to the key question by asking B-Rob whether he's concerned about the fact that people obviously read him as having an impenetrable (hee hee) alliance with Amber. B-Rob says nah, he's not worried about it, because "it's obvious" that they've been flirting since the beginning. But, he tries to insist, his "commitment to the game is first and foremost." It seems to me that B-Rob answered the wrong question there, because he pretty much answered the question of whether he's so hitched to Amber that he would protect Amber's interests at the expense of his own. I think the issue is more whether he and Amber are so tightly allied that they would use their alliance to benefit both of them against the rest of the team. So I don't see how B-Rob's affirming his commitment to the game would make any of the rest of the tribe feel better.
Now, Jeff finally leaves the nookie talk and discusses how the voting will actually be done. Big Tom says that his thought at this point is how to make the tribe stronger. "So you're basing your vote on who the tribe can afford to lose?" Jeff asks. Big Tom nods. Jeff asks B-Rob what could cause him to be voted off. B-Rob more than obviously has absolutely no concern about being voted off, but he obligingly cites his "mouth" and "attitude." And then he says, "What else, Amber?" Jeff points out how couple-ish it is for B-Rob to consult Amber, and Jeff? I am serious when I say, I GET IT. And...wait, Jeff called Amber B-Rob's "wife"? Did I dream that? Wow, it's like common-law marriage with more night-vision cameras. Jeff asks Amber what else she does think could get B-Rob voted off, and she cites his need to keep his mouth shut.
Jeff asks Sue if she's worried it might be her. "Oh, yah," she says. "I just can be a bitch to be around sometimes." Big Tom, just behind her, makes a really funny face, so she turns around like, "You want to say something?" He doesn't. Heh. Like so many reality-show contestants, Sue cites as a weakness her genuineness and refusal to be anything she's not...yaaaawn.
Now it's voting time. A-Rob votes for Alicia. "I'm a little uneasy about this vote tonight," he says, "but if everything goes through with it, I have a feeling the next time I see you, there's going to be a big finger wagging in my face." He gives a devilish grin to the camera and folds his vote. Sue votes. Big Tom votes. Alicia votes for A-Rob. She says that the team needs more "seriousness" going forward. She is no fun. B-Rob votes. Amber votes. Jeff brings the urn to the team, and prepares to read the votes. When the first vote goes to A-Rob, he tries to stay cool. When the second vote goes to Alicia but he recognizes it as his own, A-Rob grows a little more tense. When the second vote goes A-Rob, he barely restrains himself from saying "Fuck," because that was not supposed to happen, and he knows immediately that something is amiss. When he gets a third vote, he does say "Fuck." And with the next vote, A-Rob is history, and he is obviously quite miserable about it. Frustrated, he takes his torch for the snuffing. When he's gone, Jeff sends the rest of the team back to camp with their torches.
