And now it's time to play, "It's anyone but Aubry." The guys celebrate the win and while they give Aubry kudos for how awesome she was, she still has to go. Kyle breaks it down for us again, all about the super idol, etc. End of the day, he says Aubry will go home and there's nothing they can do about it. Julia, of course, tells the guys that the girls are coming for Tai. Scot and Jason are thrilled to hear it and they tell her that they realize that she's playing both sides. Kyle admits that they can't beat Tai and that once he plays his idol and loses immunity, they have to cut him loose. They want Julia on board as their #3. Julia is thrilled to hear this as the plan. They've ruined relationships with everyone in the game, so to sit with them would be amazing.
Aubry and Cydney want to split up Scot and Kyle. They decide to target Scot instead of Tai. Aubry says she's going to make a move for Tai to see if he'll join her and vote Scot out of the game. She tells us that Kyle and Scot are not playing along the lines of how Tai is and she hopes she can use that to join her. So, she approaches Tai and tells him that Cydney and Joe would go along with her in voting for Scot instead of him. Tai feels like he really wants to go with her, but he also knows that sitting with Scot and Kyle at the end would be a million bucks for him.
As everyone gets set for Tribal, Aubry lines up the votes for Scot. Kyle gives his idol to Scot so that both guys are protected. They expect the votes for Tai, but with the Super Idol, it really doesn't matter. When the Survivors head to Tribal, Tai tells us that he is torn up inside about what to do. He does tell us that whatever he does tonight is a line in the sand kind of move. There will be no going back once he makes his decision. Can I just say that I'd be thrilled to see him stick with the guys and then refuse his half of the idol and watch Scot go home? Talk about amazing television, you know?
Jeff starts with Michele, talking about the idol stuff from the last Tribal. The guys are once again wicked arrogant. Kyle tells them that they need to decide which of their own will go home. If they don't want to decide. Scot, Kyle and Tai will decide. Cydney admits that the guys are pretty salty because she flipped on them earlier in the game. Jeff notices Tai's quietness and asks if he's uncomfortable with the boasting. He says that this is not how he lives his life, but this is a game and the guys have taken care of him so far. Aubry talks about how amazing it was to stand toe to toe with Scot and Kyle in that challenge. This brings out big compliments from Kyle and Scot to Aubry. Kyle once again tells them that if they've caught wind of the plan, they ought to just go with it or have their fate decided.
