Voting Confessionals

Brian's vote was not revealed during his voting confessional.

(voting for Jake) Jake, let bygones be bygones. Look, we're too close of neighbors to be enemies.

Clay Jordan

(voting for Jake) Positivity goes a long, long way, my friend. You need a bit more positivity in your life.

Brian Heidik

Final Words

I'm almost 61. In fact, I'll be 61 here just real quick. So, I was kind of looking forward to a little retirement income, but you know what? When one door shuts, another always opens. And I had such a grand experience here. I'll go back home to Texas, and I'll be back with my Jenny, and I'll be the happiest little guy in the world.
