Previously On... Survivor: For Keith, everything was going right. He found a clue to a Hidden Immunity Idol, and after protecting Val at Exile, he gained an ally in her husband, Jeremy. But the rest of his tribe was struggling. Jon lost the flint and Drew simply lost his energy. But at the last Immunity Challenge, they beat Coyopa again, and finally, John Rocker's past caught up to him. At Tribal Council, Coyopa continued to fall apart. The men's alliance crumbled and John wasn't the only one blindsided. Fifteen are left. Who will be voted out tonight?
Tonight at Tribal, John got voted out. (elated) Yay! Kudos to the team! He was the biggest, strongest guy on our tribe but I feel like, more importantly, you have to have a positive team. So, John's attitude being removed, will help us. Unfortunately, that leaves Dale on the outs.
I probably got comfortable on our five guy alliance and kind of let the social game slide a little bit. I have to put more effort into building trust with people because as of right now, if we lose the next individual Immunity, I'm toast.
The other day, we lost our flint and we had to forfeit our fishing gear, we won, to get a new one and it really aggravated me because I'm a big fisherman and I definitely could provide for the tribe. But now, I'm literally starving to death.
Drew's a lot of talk, lets be honest. He says he can do all these amazing things, then he sleeps for 4 hours. But all we can hear from Drew (mockingly) "fishing gear, fishing gear, we shoulda got the fishing gear!"
Eating the same portion as a 100 pound girl is really killing me right now. So I think I'm gonna balls up and be like "Work with me, Jeff". I think that's what a good leader does. You have to make decisions that nobody else really wants to do. You know, it's kinda hard to drag these people along and not get much in return. But the thing is, without me, these people would be nothing, you know.
We are dying to win. I wanna win so bad. We're desperate and continuing to lose, we're on the ropes and, you know, are we going to be able to pick ourselves up or are we going to be the worst tribe in Survivor history? Who knows?!
I have mixed emotions on how I feel about sending Drew and Jaclyn to Exile. He is somebody who I do trust but if Drew is anything like he is at camp, Jaclyn might be doing most of the firewood collecting. But she's very strong so I think that she can handle somebody like Drew.
Seeing my boyfriend John, voted out was hurtful. Just to know that everybody is just anti John Rocker. He was the love of my life but things like this happen all the time with John, where he's automatically judged from Day 1 so I kinda prepared myself. But to be without him right now, is such a desperate feeling. All I can do is just try my best and get myself back in the game.
Being on Exile Island sucks 'cause it's so hot. And there's no shelter so it's rough out here. The good thing 'bout being here with Jaclyn is I got an awesome clue. That's number one. Number two is I got a pretty, Miss Michigan type looking chick out here.
The fact that I'm a ladies man seems to work in my advantage but I haven't been trying to work that angle too much. Jaclyn is definitely very attractive looking, but the thing is, I'm not out here looking for love. Definitely not with one of my buddy's girls. I'm really out here just trying to strategize and manipulate minds.
Alec told me his brother's a ladies man (laughs). So I'm like "Oh God!" But I'm not worried about him. I'm just thinking about the game. So I just want to kinda figure out with Drew what's going on, like, and collaborate.
I've decided, I'm gonna throw in the next Immunity Challenge because honestly all the girls in my tribe seem a little bit untrustworthy to me. They know in the long run they have no chance in competing against us. I'd like to start whittling down the people on our tribe so I can get myself forward and win the million dollars.
I dug around the sand for about 30 minutes and I thought "I'm wasting my time." Unfortunately, looks like I'm a day late and a dollar short. Look like somebody's already been through there. So I'm thinking "I mighta got beat to the punch."
I'm pissed. I mean, we're both firefighters. I told you I have your back. If you think I have an Idol, why don't you just come to me? Don't you think that we're on he same page and we coulda used it together? Keith was chillin'. He wasn't on anyone's radar. But now I want him gone because Keith, you are a rat.
I got to thinking "Idols are important in this game. Having one of 'em would be a big thing to have around." And I said "Alright, well, we'll go back, you know, maybe I wasn't... due north or seven steps." So I just poked and prodded around a little more. Thought it done been found but um, obviously not. Matter of fact, it just kinda jumped at me, kinda scared me. I'm probably not going to tell anybody that I have the Idol because the last thing I need is a target on my back. I'm not a brain surgeon but if everybody thinks Jeremy has it, that could be good for me.
Baylor does things here and there that kinda get on my nerves and I'm not gonna to let her get away with it. She makes it seem like in her life everything's given to her, just like it was for Drew. But she's not my brother so I'm gonna call her on every single thing she does.
As a kid, my dad didn't go wake Drew up to go wash cars 'cause he knew Drew wouldn't be worth a damn. He came and woke me up. I had to work hard for everything I've gotten and I think in the end it made me a stronger person.
Am I going to throw the Challenge today? That is the million dollar question. People are going to hate me for doing that but I could care less. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to get things done.
I threw the Challenge today because we need to go to Tribal and get some of the snakes that are in our team off. If I don't want to win, we're not going to win. And that's what makes me the kingpin of my tribe.
I kinda decided on Exile that if I had the opportunity to throw this game, I would. And uh, I did. I don't know if they knew I was throwing it but I could care less because we need to start getting rid of some of the snakes in our tribe. So um, basically I'm a badass, and a manipulator of this game. (laughs)
My argument today was Julie should be the one to go. She hasn't really been helping in Challenges, she doesn't help around camp. It would be an easy one to agree on. But most importantly, she doesn't have a Loved One.
My personal biggest threat right now is Kelley. She plays very low-key but at the same time, she's very observant and if you talk to her you know that she has not missed one episode of Survivor. So Kelley's a threat and it's my mission to get people to vote for her tonight.
This is the thing, I want Keith gone. Keith is trying to go after me so now I don't trust him at all. But Drew, he wants to get rid of Kelley now because he thinks Kelley runs the girls, which is ridiculous. She's not doing anything.
Drew, he's scared the girls are going to vote out guys which is stupid. We don't even have the numbers to do that but he's convinced of this girl-girl alliance. Luckily, the guys have kind of a mess, you know. They're not on the same page, which is good.
I was standing by the shelter and I heard Drew leading the charge to get me out and I was like "What the hell?!" I don't know what it is. Maybe he's just threatened by me, you know, as a strong female. But Drew gets this vision in his head and he's like the king of it. He has to be the one to like give the final decision and I think people are getting over that really, really quickly.
The problem is the guys are all over the place. Drew is saying "Kelley's the play." Jon is like "We're going after Julie." And, I want to get rid of Keith. Its just crazy. Maybe we should get rid of Drew. He's digging his own grave but I'm just not sure if it's the right time.

I knew all along those girls wanted me outta there 'cause I'm obviously a physical and social threat to them. Congrats to 'em, they did a great job by getting me out because in the long run I definitely would've beat them. I just wish I would've been a little bit more chill and kind of roll with the girls rather than kinda gone against them right away because, um, turned out to bite me in my butt.
