"Tribal Council Voting"
JOHN K - votes CHRIS
You did not do well in the game today. I'm looking out for the future of this team. We really need to win on those balance beams, because I know they're gonna come again. Take it easy.
RORY - votes BROOK
Brook buddy, you've got a fantastic sense of humor. You were not my first choice, but I'm voting my strategy. Just to follow the unit of the elders, you gotta go. And nothing personal, it's just business.
BROOK - votes CHRIS
Chris, you made me laugh harder in the last three days than ten to twenty of my closest friends who made me laugh. Ten to fifteen guys, you know. But, I'm making this vote to save my own butt and it's definatly strategy. Good luck, bud.
CHRIS - votes BROOK
Just playing the game. I started playing it when I got to the beach. It's all part of the game man.
LEA - votes BROOK
You're a casulaty of war. You put me in charge, have everybody listen to me. I'm gonna tell them how to vote.
BRADY - votes RORY
Rory, if you get voted off tonight we're gonna miss your sage comments around camp. Right now man, it's all about team, we gotta win. Take care.
JOHN P - votes CHRIS
My vote's vote Chris tonight because part of this game is surviving challenges. And Chris, right now your the weakest link on the team.
CHAD - votes BROOK
You're a good guy, but I think you need to be a little bit more focused for what you're doing around camp.
TRAVIS - votes BROOK
This is a very heavy, hard time. You're a great friend, but I was asked to be in an alliance with person 'A'. Wish you had come to me first.
"Brook's Final Words"
"Brook the Day After"
Brook is happy about the chance to have played the game. He is upset because Survivor is such a big thing in his life, and he wishes he could have tested himself by staying longer. Brook says he got along well with a lot of people and that he doesn't have any hard feelings. Brook says getting on the show was a very cool experience, he says different strategies of the game don't always work or don't work. He said he wanted to be under the radar, he says that John and Travis were his friends and that if he did play more agressive that he would have lost quickly as well.
