Voting Confessionals

(voting for Stephanie) Tonight, I'm voting for Stephanie, um, based on what happened the first week of camp. There were a few words that were exchanged that were not very nice, and some things that were done at camp that a few of us didn't appreciate.

Penny Ramsey

(voting for Shii Ann) Shii, I do think you're a sweet girl, but you really get on my nerves, so, have to vote for you.

Stephanie Dill

(voting for Stephanie) Tonight, my vote's for Steph. Steph, you're a beautiful, beautiful person, and I just wish you hadn't alienated yourself so much from the start, and then we could have seen just how beautiful a person you really were.

Ken Stafford

(voting for Shii Ann) Sorry, girl. You get on my nerves, and I don't like being around you. Nothing personal.

Robb Zbacnik

Final Words

I just want to say that, um, I loved my time here with you guys and I look forward to being with you when we get back home. We really were the Dream Team, um, personality-wise and physically. I'll hold no grudges against any of you and, uh, really look forward to being with you on the outside so... be cool.

  • This is the first (and so far only) time there was an Survivor Auction between the tribes instead of between individuals.
  • This episode marks the first time that a mutiny was offered and contestants on one tribe could choose to switch to another tribe.
