Voting ConfessionalsEdit

(voting for Phil) Hello, camera! I mean Chris was saying to me at the end, like "We should vote for Siona! We should vote for Siona!" and I, uh, made no decision on his say because Chris wants to vote Siona and she was just like "What do I do?" and I was just like "I'm gonna tell him that you said you didn't want to." I like, uh, kinda screwed Chris over on cause if he goes home tonight, we probably could have voted for Siona. It comes down to whether Phil plays the idol. I think Chandler votes Phil. I think Phil plays the idol. I think my boy Chris goes home. Sorry, brother! But if not, we'll see.


(voting for Phil) Oh well, I gotta do it because, um - I'm voting for Phil because that's the only chance I have. Um, I don't think it matters at this point, I think I'm going to go home. Steve didn't listen to me to vote for Siona, so...that's what happens.

–Chris L.

(voting for Chris L.) Chris LeCompte, you slimy fucking bastard. Just kidding. I actually like you a lot more than I did at the beginning, but I still don't trust you, which I don't feel bad about at all cause there's no reason to trust you. So, goodbye. Hopefully you get voted out tonight and not me.


(voting for Siona) So I definitely feel like I'm a target this week. Probably because everybody knows I have the idol and now he's trying to figure out probably how to convince me not to play it and vote me out, but at the same time, everybody's gonna be scared to vote me out. Chris gave me his word that he wasn't voting for me. I'm gonna take that for what it's worth, y'know. I mean he also told us that his dog died last week, so this week, I'm voting Siona.


(voting for Chris L.) This vote is probably gonna vote me or Siona out tonight, like actually, because Chris and Steve were plotting against us and - I don't know. I'm gonna go with my gut. I have to vote out Chris this week.


(voting for Phil) Um, I hope this works, but I guess if Chris goes home, Chris goes home. Can't vote for Siona, I just can't do that right now.

–Nicole C.

(voting for Phil) It's cold and I don't know who I'm voting for. What do you think, Mr. Skeleton? (inaudible whispering) What? (inaudible whispering) Okay. It wasn't me, this guy right here.


Final WordsEdit

Well, I guess I did it to myself like I said. Trusted Chris, he's kind of a scumbag. Um, I'm not really mad at anyone, it's just a game. Yeah, I mean, I definitely had fun. Like I said, I mean it sucks. I definitely should have trusted Ryan and Siona. I guess I didn't see it coming, obviously. And I went home with the idol in my pocket. Um, guess I'll have more time for schoolwork now.
