(voting for Mike) You have no idea how much this breaks my heart.

Dan Foley


(voting for Tyler) I've been trying to get you out of this game for a long time now.

Final Words

What can I say? Um, I left it all on the field, so to speak. My tactics to go after Dan tonight were right, it's just that the rest of the group didn't really follow suit. I had a blast. I-I regret nothing that I did. Everything that I did was to my full potential. It's just difficult to get ahead in this game if you're not winning challenges and unfortunately, I came up a little short today.
