Probst returns with the urn. He's midway through his hidden immunity speech when Kristina interrupts him and hands him the idol. Damn. I was kind of hoping she would hold onto it again and squeak by again, but that would be pretty insane on her part. Probst says no votes for Kristina will count tonight before showing two votes for her, from Phillip and, I'm assuming, Andrea. Then we have two votes for Phillip, who seems pretty sure he's leaving tonight. But then! There's a vote for Matt, who is surprised but not worried. Until a second vote for him is revealed and he starts to realize that he's about to get blindsided. "Wow," he says, as a third vote for him is revealed. Andrea looks like she's about to throw up. Phillip grins like he planned this whole thing. We don't see Kristina's reaction, but she's probably wishing she hadn't played her idol. The final vote is a fourth for Matt, who, to his credit, is grinning and in awe the entire time. "Good work, guys," he says; "my goodness." That right there tells me that he really wasn't trying to win Andrea or the members of the other tribe over like Rob thought; he's probably a truly nice guy who just wanted to talk to a pretty girl and be a good sport, not realizing how those actions would be interpreted in the context of this game. Probst snuffs his torch and sends him to Redemption Island, where I'm sure Francesca will be so, so happy to see him and not Phillip. "Damn, guys," Matt says on his way down the stairs. I guess he's not so into Jesus that he can't curse every once in a while. Probst is very pleased to see a "vicious blindside" this early in the game from Rob's tribe and sends them away.
And so, Matt arrives on Redemption Island. He says he's on an emotional rollercoaster and not sure if he wants to go home or go on to have "the greatest comeback in Survivor history," which isn't actually possible since Lill already did that in Season 7. I mean, honestly, you just aren't going to beat a 50-something woman in a Boy Scout uniform getting second place after being voted out. Francesca is shocked to see Matt, who leaves us by saying he has the lord with him. Too bad he didn't have Rob.
