Voting Confessionals

Jan is shown writing Clay's name down on the parchment. Brian is shown writing Ghandia's name down on the parchment.

(voting for Ghandia) You blew up an issue way beyond the scope of this game. For that reason, this vote is personal, and I truly, truly hope I never, ever see you in my life again.

Ted Rogers, Jr.

(voting for Ghandia) You played cat and mouse. You just didn't do good-- too good at it. You got busted, so bye-bye, Denver.

Clay Jordan

(voting for Clay) It's between you and me tonight, so let the best person win.

Ghandia Johnson

Final Words

I made, um, a big mistake in trying to play one side against the other side because of an event that happened to me that I should've just let go. But unfortunately, the evil Ghandia came to rue her ugly head and the good Ghandia just couldn't stop her. Have fun everybody still sleeping out in the dirt. (laughs) Peace out.

Ghandia Johnson

  • This is the last time where Chuay Gahn goes to Tribal Council.
  • For the first time, Jeff Probst could not figure out whom the vote was intended for. Clay, the caster of the mystery vote supposed to be for Ghandia, wrote, "Bye bye, Denver Diva."
