|“||(voting for Trish) You stabbed us all in the back. You have no idea how to play this game, but good try. (winks) See you later.||”|
|“||(voting for Rupert) Everybody's got a price, everybody's gotta pay, 'cause a million dollar man, always gets his way.||”|
|“||(voting for Trish) I've always said you were a snake from Day 1. Um, you can't be trusted, so, um, goodbye, adios.||”|
|“||(voting for Rupert) Rupert, l'm voting you out because l think you just have too much power with the other tribe, and it just seems to me that you are straddling both tribes.||”|
|“||(voting for Trish) I cannot believe that you turned on me so quickly. Everybody in my tribe tells me that you want me out, and you lie right to my face. I can't take that.||”|
|“||(voting for Trish) You know what? Game's over for you. It's my game now, so goodbye.||”|
|“||I didn't see this coming at all, obviously. But l always knew that anything can happen. And so, l really never took anything for granted. Hats off to the Drake tribe. I think you guys are all great. I hope one of the Drakes end up winning the million dollars. Good for you guys, you kept a secret and that's the beauty of this game. You just never know what's going to happen and when it's going to happen.||”|
Still in the Running
- When Jon was voting for Rupert, he made a reference to "The Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase by saying his most famous quote, "everybody's got a price, everybody's gotta pay, 'cause a million dollar man always gets his way." A year later, Rupert would win his million dollars for being the most popular castaway in Survivor: America's Tribal Council.
- The Immunity Challenge would be later used as a challenge in "The Strongest Man Alive" and a Reward/Immunity Challenge in "Survivalism".
