Voting Confessionals

Gary, you've been running around the jungle for two days, man, like a squirrel tryin' to get a damn nut, man. Do me a favor — get the hell out of here.


(voting for Gary) I'm sticking to my alliance. You're a great guy. You've played an awesome game, but you're way too big of a threat, and if you stay around, I won't. See you on the outside.


Gary, I decided to vote you out tonight because I knew that the information I was telling you was getting spread around. You proved it at Tribal Council.


(voting for Gary) To say that anyone doesn't deserve to be in this game, is not a very good way to play this game. Everybody deserves to be here, and I'm definitely one of them. To say that you haven't lied when you say, "Let's four get together and have an alliance" and then two other people come along and you leave the group and now you want an alliance with them, and two more people come along and you want an alliance with them? You're lying to someone. That's why I am still here, and you're not.


(voting for Gary) I'm only writing your name down because you told me to. So, it's going to be a unanimous vote. You are not a liar. You're a man of your word. You're an awesome guy. I look up to you like a father figure. I'm absolutely gonna miss you around camp for the next few days.


(voting for Gary) You've played this game very well - strategically, and with great pride, but I didn't know you felt that way about me being a coattail; I didn't like that comment. The tribe has spoken. Gotta go.


Cindy, I thought I was pretty nice to you, but then you attack me like a wild dog with rabies.


Final Words

What a great time. I had fun. It was a great competition. I loved meeting the people. My tribe does not know my real name which is Gary Hogeboom. I didn't feel that it would be an advantage if they knew I used to play in the NFL. So that was the lie I told, but I told it because I wanted to be judged on how I played the game, not on who I was in the past.

  • With Gary's elimination, Danni is the only member of the post-switch Yaxhá tribe remaining.
  • This is the second time an episode of Survivor has aired immediately following CBS's NFL coverage. A Denver Broncos-Dallas Cowboys game ran long, ending at 7:48 pm EST and requiring the NFL on CBS post-game show to be shortened to 12 minutes. Coincidentally, the same two teams were responsible for the previous such incident.
    • Furthering the coincidence, the person voted out in this episode was former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Gary Hogeboom.
  • As of this episode, Stephenie LaGrossa has improved on her previous placement; she previously placed 7th in her first season.
