Voting ConfessionalsEdit

(voting for Phil) I don't know, I'm gonna have to go with my word tonight and if it bites me in the ass and this is the reason why I'm out, then whatever. I think I played a good game, so Phil, it had to be done.


(voting for Ryan) Alright, uh, I don't know. Things with Waka - old Waka haven't been going too well. Hopefully, I haven't been getting played and hopefully I'm not gonna get voted out. That would - That would suck a lot, I don't know. It's just the best I can say.

–Chris T.

(voting for Chris T.) Oh man, so this is, uh - shit's probably gonna go down. I think I know where the votes going, but I'm not positive. Chris Thomas, I'm voting for you cause I think you can win the game. Glad that we're friends this year even though we may not have been last year. Hopefully - Hopefully it happens, I don't know, I'm kinda getting nervous.

–Chris L.

(voting for Chris T.) We meet again, camera. I mean this game is all about lies and deception, which sucks cause I'm not the best at that. Talking to Connor, it really really seems like he's going with us. Chandler is the worry for me, but hey, nothing's guaranteed in this game. Connor and Chandler, I never talked to them before. Can I trust them now? I don't know. We'll see what happens.


(voting for Ryan) Feeling pretty sketched out right now and I mean all I really have is Chris' word that he's with me and Ryan basically told us the same thing, but you know, he's with one of us and not the other.


(voting for Phil) Sorry Phil, you're just too much of a threat and I think it's a good thing to do.

–Nicole C.

(voting for Chris T.) We're not really sure how this is going to happen but hopefully Chris (Chris T.) or Phil or whatever goes home, so sorry Chris (Chris T.)! Love you!

–Nicole L.

(voting for Chris T.) Man, I'm gonna have to think this one out here. This is a big big elimination, and it's riding on me.


Final WordsEdit

I don't know. Not necessarily thinking I was getting voted off but not really that surprised. I figured something like this was gonna happen eventually, so good luck to Phil, hopefully he can win it.

–Chris T.
