So to mitigate that possibility, Yul goes to the shelter. He flat-out tells Adam that he knows he has to play the game, but he shouldn’t try to turn Ozzy against them. Um… Yul, what do you expect him to do? That’s just kind of a ridiculous thing to say. Adam says he can’t just sit around and not say anything. Duh. Sometimes, I just wonder where Yul’s mind is.
Well, right now it’s apparently on Jonathan’s hat. When he was voted out last week, Jonathan said he wanted his hat back. So Yul figures he’ll wear it to Tribal Council and give it to him – after all, Jonathan will be right there, on the jury. But he worries Probst might get mad at him. Ya think? After all, you’re not supposed to address the jury. But Yul says he thinks it’s just a nice thing to do.
As the tribe arrives, Yul goes over and drops off the hat on the jury bench. I think that’s the best way to do it – he can’t be accused of sucking up to Jonathan because Jonathan doesn’t know who left it for him. Jonathan does indeed laugh when he arrives and sees it.
Probst says that normally, the jury doesn’t have any involvement in Tribal Council, but he notes, “Yul brought your hat, Jonathan.” OK, so Yul didn’t have to suck up – Probst did it for him. Jonathan thanks Yul, and Probst says it might be the boldest move made in trying to win a vote if the player should make it to the end. But Yul says he just wanted to give Jonathan his hat back. Probst says he just wants to get the facts straight: This is the same guy who was an ally but was blindsided last time? Yup.
Did Becky know Yul was doing this? Yes. And even though he won’t admit it, she’s sure he was thinking about the vote in the back of his mind. What does Parvati think? She says Yul has been playing the game to win votes from the beginning.
Is Adam starting to see people play for the jury? He doesn’t think Sundra, Becky, or Ozzy are. Yul might be, though. Yul jumps in and says that he voted the guy out and he asked for his hat back. So he would want to give it to him anyway, but it also helps to appease him, thus serving both purposes.
Moving away from the hat, Parvati is asked if she bonded with Yul and Ozzy at the spa. She coyly says she “bonded with the fellas.” They had a good time. Is Adam concerned that Parvati went up a notch because of that? He says he’s at the bottom of the totem pole anyway.
Why does Adam think he’s still in the game, given that he’s the biggest physical threat on paper? Adam says he hasn’t produced. Speaking of challenges, does it concern Yul that Ozzy has been so dominating in the challenges? Yul, as usual, answers honestly. He says they’re very tight and get farther working together than they would individually.
With that, it’s time to vote. Parvati votes for Sundra, saying she loves her, best of luck, enjoy. We don’t get to see Yul’s vote, but we do hear him. He says the person he’s voting for is a strong competitor and he definitely underestimated them. I’m thinking that means Parvati, because I doubt Yul underestimated Adam.
Probst tallies and reads the votes: Sundra, Parvati (well, we know who’s leaving), Parvati, Sundra, Parvati, and… Parvati. Her torch is snuffed and off she goes. In her final words, she says she knows she could have worked it more in the hot tub, but she doesn’t think it would have helped. She’s learned so much about herself – she realized how strong she is and what she’s capable of.
Before sending them back to camp, Probst notes that in just three days, one of the five will win. Indeed he’s right – in three days, Sunday, the finale will air!
