Notes: This season completely blows, scoring-wise. The merge is next week, and 6 of the 11 contestants remaining still don't have scores! This week is no exception.
- Reward challenge mess: Okay... we're going with Kalabaw "winning" the reward, simply because Probst announced, after the negotiations had ended, "Kalabaw wins reward!" So no win points for Tandang, even though they got rice out of the deal. We are heartless bastards.
*Secondly, there's also a sit-out problem. Officially, RC and Artis were the only people sitting out. But Abi-Maria, Malcolm, Katie, and Jeff Kent all were sitting on the sidelines during the first (and only) heat, and never actually participated. So we're going with no "win" points for Kent or Katie, either. That raises a second question: How many people participated? We're going with 5 per tribe. If the non-participants felt strongly enough about competing, they would have nixed the deal, so in our eyes, they were eligible to compete, but chose to sit out.
Basically, all of this is completely arbitrary, and we're going with the smallest possible positive score for the "winners," in an attempt to dilute out the effects of it all.
- Katie received 5 votes, from Denise, Penner, Jeff Kent!, Carter, and Katie (voted out, 5-1).
