And closing it out is Matty. He asks Susie to tell him why Bob and Sugar are less deserving than she is. She says that she has faults too, but she was disgusted with what Sugar did to Randy. And then she went on about how disappointed she was with Bob and how he wasn't happier for her after she won. He asks Sugar to reveal what she did that was just totally evil. She says that voting out Kenny was the one thing that she felt horrible about. Matty seems surprised by her answer. I can only assume that he wanted to hear that her most evil deed was planning the tie between him and Bob. He moves on to Bob to ask why the girls are more deserving of the prize. Bob's answer is short and sweet, "I don't think they are."
And with that, the jury section is over. While I applaud Sugar's honesty and unwillingness to kiss ass and give the jury what they wanted to hear, I fear it will cost her the votes to win. Susie is a non-factor, which leaves Bob. Despite the fact that he had a brutal Tribal Council, I think he wins this thing hands down. And it looks like Sugar gets to continue the time honored tradition of the best actual player finishing in third place. It started with Lex in Africa, continues with Kathy in Marquesas, Cesternino in the Amazon and now Sugar in Gabon. We'll take a quick break and then come back with the voting.
We come back from break and Jeff explains that tonight the jury is actually voting FOR someone tonight, rather than against them. And with that, it's time to vote. We see Matty's vote for Susie. He says they were friends from day one to 39. Next up is Corinne's vote for Bob telling him he did a great job surviving in Africa and that she's not sure how he survives in the real world. Randy's vote is not shown, but at the top of his lungs he shouts, "All three of you, kiss my ass!" Kenny goes up there and we get the montage of him pacing and thinking and having a hard time voting. Puh-lease. And with that, Jeff goes to get the votes and off he goes back to the States. Switching to live in 3...2...1...
And in front of the live audience, Jeff will read the final votes. First vote is Corinne's vote for Bob. Second vote is Matty's vote for Susie. Third vote: Susie. Are you frickin kidding me? How is she getting ANY votes? Fourth vote: Susie. No lie, if she wins this game, I'm done with Survivor. There have been some loser winners before, but Susie will be the worst of them all. Fifth vote: Bob. Sixth vote: Bob. And we're all tied up with one vote left to read. And the winner of Survivor: Gabon - Earth's Last Eden is Bob. Oh thank God. I really didn't want to give up the show, but I would have!
