(voting against Charlie) Charlie, you're a hell of a guy, you played a very good game, but it's time for you to go.

S17 ken t
Ken

(voting against Charlie) Sorry, Charlie. It's not like I'm a homophobic. It's just that at that feast, you took the Hidden Immunity Idol away from me and I thought I gotta get you for that. Sorry.

(voting against Crystal) You're a bully, and I don't want to play this game with you. I hope you go home tonight.

S17 charlie t
Charlie

(voting against Crystal) Word on the street is that you are a really mean person, but that's side the point, you took out my Marcus and that made me really mad. Sorry.


Final Words

Charlie

Okay, this is a disaster. I hundred percent did not see this coming, but what can you do at this point. And I didn't think I'd make it past the first tribal, so to make it this far is amazing. If I'm gonna leave Survivor, I'm glad it's a blindside. Thank God, Marcus is in the jury house, that is my saving grace! I can't wait to see Marcus!
