When the vote comes around, the Heroes state during the writing of names that the reason they are targeting Jerri is because they consider her to be the least likely recipient of a hidden immunity idol. What happens next takes our breath away. We say without hyperbole that this may be the best strategic move one player has ever made in the history of the game. Parvati gives one of her hidden immunity idols to Sandra, which causes much premature celebration from JT, Rupert and Colby. Then, she gives her other idol to Jerri, at which point JT realizes he is screwed.
JT, let's trace the mousetrap that leads to your execution. Remember a couple of episodes ago when you found a hidden immunity idol and tried to hide it from everyone, only to be discovered by Amanda? Remember how you inexplicably made the determination that the best thing to do with your idol would be to give it away to a complete stranger on the opposing tribe? Also, do you recall how you gave that stranger a letter instructing him to vote out a specific individual on the other tribe? And do you also note that this person you wanted him to eliminate was actually his Survivor crush? Well, it turns out that Trolly McThinkswithhisjunk thought that the best way to impress her would be to give her his (your) hidden immunity idol. And she thought that the best way to use that immunity idol would be to make sure that your ass was eliminated. Yes, JT, you sealed your own fate. And it only gets worse when you hear the words that Parvati uttered as she wrote your name down:
"This is my love letter to you. Since you tried to vote me out, I figured I should return the favor."
JT, we don't know how to say this politely, but we have decided that Stephen was the brains of your operation when you won.
Parvati, we're officially under your spell. We'll give you our "hidden immunity idol" any time.
