Voting Confessionals

(votes for Crystal) Bitch!

Randy Bailey


(votes for Charlie) Sorry, Charlie, but you picked two of the worst allies when I have to make a vote. I'm a traitor, sorry.

Sugar Kiper


(votes for Charlie) Charlie, you're a hell of a guy, you played a very good game, but it's time for you to go.

Matty Whitmore


(votes for Charlie) Charlie, you're a good competitor. I got to take you out if I'm going to move ahead. I hope we can still be friends.

Susie Smith


(votes for Charlie) You are a big threat, and you are hurting my alliance. I'm sorry, but you got to go.

Crystal Cox


(votes for Charlie) Sorry, Charlie. It's not like I'm a homophobic. It's just that at that feast, you took the Hidden Immunity Idol away from me and I thought I gotta get you for that. Sorry.

Ken Hoang


(votes for Crystal) Sorry Crystal, it's a game. Hope to see you later.

Bob Crowley


(votes for Crystal) You're a bully, and I don't want to play this game with you. I hope you go home tonight.

Corinne Kaplan


(votes for Crystal) Word on the street is that you are a really mean person, but that's side the point, you took out my Marcus and that made me really mad. Sorry.

Charlie Herschel



Final Words

Okay, this is a disaster. I hundred percent did not see this coming, but what can you do at this point. And I didn't think I'd make it past the first tribal, so to make it this far is amazing. If I'm gonna leave Survivor, I'm glad it's a blindside. Thank God, Marcus is in the jury house, that is my saving grace! I can't wait to see Marcus!
