We're supposed to believe that some kind of coral snake is hanging out on the stairs as the contestants make their way to Tribal Council. Probst begins by addressing Kristina and how she did not play the idol at the last Tribal. Kristina says she "had a feeling" that she didn't need to play it and it was a tough and risky decision that ultimately paid off for her. Probst has had enough talking to women and turns to Phillip, who decides to show off his shoulder tattoos. On his left shoulder, he has a picture of a gorilla. On the right, a lion. Shockingly, Phillip has strong feelings about these animals and how he resembles them. Because he's totally ripping off Coach and his love of dragons. Phillip says if you do something to the country he loves, he will show you his crappy gorilla tattoo. Probst nods along with this. Phillip continues that if you try to attack his family, who are either so embarrassed right now or love him more than ever, he will show you his similarly crappy lion tattoo. Probst asks what the lion or gorilla do when they screw up. Phillip doesn't really get what Probst is alluding to and just starts reciting stuff he saw on Animal Planet, that the lion never screws up and the gorilla either beats his opponents down or is the one who is beaten. He then admits that he did lose today and must "suffer the consequences." Probst asks Rob if the loss was all Phillip's fault or if everyone on the team should shoulder some of the blame. Of course, Rob knows that Phillip is TV gold and Probst loves him, so he won't say anything bad about Phillip. He says they win or lose as a team, but he can understand how Phillip feels because he is also a competitor.
