Girly Girls & Girly Guys
Yaxha Tribal Council
Morgan Voted Out
Transcribed by DCReads56
DC Notes: Yaxha seems divided between those that voted for Morgan to protect Lydia and those who voted for Morgan to go with the majority. Only Gary cites lack of help around camp as the reason for voting her out. Morgan explains Jaime's comment in the Reality News Online interview.
Brian (Votes Morgan): First vote for Yaxha! Morgan, Iím voting for you because I overheard you telling Jaime that he canít trust me. And donít you dare try to mess with my fishmonger! Nobody messes with my Lydia! I hope that this works. It was kind of last minute.
Morgan (Votes Lydia): Um, believe it or not Lydia, this is going to be one of the hardest decisions that I make while Iím out here. You are a fierce competitor. Youíre a really hard worker and you can do anything you put your mind to. But I made a promise and Iím keeping my word.
Gary (Votes Morgan): Morgan, youíre a great girl. I think you did great in the challenges. This is all about camp life. Youíre not working and contributing to our team in the camp. Had to vote for somebody.
Brianna (Votes Morgan): Morgan, youíre a sweet girl. I truly did trust you. But you didnít really trust me.
Jaime (Votes Morgan): I told you I was going to do anything I could to save my girl Lydia. Iím sorry you couldnít listen and vote for Brianna.
Lydia (Votes Morgan): This was not my choice. But now I know what you mean when you told me, ďWhat would you do if you were placed in this position when someone had asked you?Ē
Amy (Votes Morgan): Iím voting for Morgan. Baby girl, literally this was a last minute team decision. Good luck.
Stephenie (Votes Morgan): Morgan, you did awesome out here girl. Thatís nothing against you. Itís just all part of the game and Iím going with the numbers. It helps my strategy. See you on the outside.
Rafe (Votes Morgan): If someone told me on the first day that I would be voting for you now
, I would have called them an absolute liar. You better believe that Iím going to win this thing for you. I love you. (Kisses the paper)
The Day After
Transcribed by DCReads56
Morgan: Right now Iím feeling a little shellshocked. Iím not as bad as last night. Itís definitely a surprise to be the one voted off last night. But Iím okay with it today. Starting to piece some things together. I donít think Iíll really understand everything there is to know until itís all said and done.
I think that I did get along with everyone in the tribe. I think that they got along with me. I think I was voted out for other reasons that had nothing to do with the way your personalities click or personal relationships. I think those were kind of left at the sidelines last night at Tribal Council and people put their game faces on and just did what they thought they had to. And for that reason I canít be mad or angry at anyone, and I really sincerely care about everyone that was on my tribe. And they all voted for me last night. They werenít honest with me. They told me they werenít voting for me last night. They told me something different. I got lied to. And it really, really hurt. So I kind of feel like Iíve been cheated on.
Tribal Council last night was so surreal. The question asking, that time, between asking the questions and people going up and placing their votes and Jeff coming back and right before him reading the votes, thereís just a lot of dead time to think. And that was the furthest thing from my mind, getting voted off, having to pick up my torch and having it get snuffed out. I didnít think it was going to be my last Tribal Council, thatís for sure.
I feel my Survivor experience hasnít ended quite yet. I still have a lot of questions to ask people. I still have a lot of things to piece together before I can kind of close this chapter on my life and step away form it and look at the experience as a whole and be like, ďWow.Ē This is my first time leaving the country. Iíd never even left the country before, and here I am, living in the jungle of Guatemala. And faring a lot better than I thought I ever would. I learned Ė that was the biggest thing for me. Iíve learned a lot about myself. I look like this sorority girl that canít do anything, and I was the one that taught all these guys how to make fire from flint.
So itís taught me that there is a lot more to me. I mean, I knew that I was complex. I knew that I was more than what I looked like. But it kind of reinstated that for me. Cause a lot of times you get caught up in what people think about you and you start to believe stuff. And then I get this amazing opportunity to do something like this. I havenít been this physical ever in my life. I mean, I did sports and stuff in high school , and was challenged in that way. I was part of a team. But you go off to college and maybe go for a run if you feel like it. But my body Ė I am physical. I can do stuff. I am really strong. So I learned that about myself.
The mind is a powerful, powerful thing. Iíve been fine. I was fine. I had a lot more game to play and thatís because Iím very, very strong willed and I have a lot of heart. Even though I got voted off really early, this game has given me a lot of confidence. Cause after you do a 15 mile hike through the Guatemalan jungle and you do some of the challenges that I did and thereís not a lot you canít do after that.
Right now, if I could say something to my tribe, I would say Iím sorry I didnít say goodbye. (Chokes up) When I left Tribal Council last night I was just so shocked that I couldnít even turn around and say anything. I want one of them to win the million dollars, and I want them to do really well as a tribe. And I want them to stay really close because we were so united. Having to vote somebody off was a big deal to all of us. We didnít want to lose anyone. And so I hope that theyíre doing well and that theyíre staying united without me. I really do. So I want to say Iím sorry I didnít say goodbye, I do want one of you to win. I just am not mad. I want to see all of them on the other side.

Description: What do Brian and his tribemates eat on a daily basis? Brian weighs in on his tribe's limited diet and delivers his assessment of his tribemates.
Brian (Confessional): Umm, camp life is doing pretty well, you know, we caught a fish, it was about this big (motions very small distance with thumb and forefinger, laughs, shrugs shoulders). We caught a fish, it was a morale booster more than anything else, you know. A couple of people didn't want to eat it, which I understand, you know, it was a tiny fish, it couldn't go all the way around anyway. But you know, just try it, get some protein in you, it's not much anyway. But I took a bite, it was just nice to have something different in my mouth for once instead of all this corn. And we're kind of out of fruit, so it was a good change of pace.
A bunch of us were sleeping in the shelter, and Gary comes up screaming, "We have fish! You gotta see this monster! We got a shark!" So we all come scrambling out of the shelter, so excited, you know, falling over ourselves to see this fish, and then you know of course, it's this big (motions again). And, it was a joke, I thought it was funny, I was laughing, Jamie was a little bit annoyed because he actually exerted more energy getting out of the shelter than he would have even eating the fish. So I mean it was funny, you know, we're just so delirious out here, that anything we can do to make ourselves laugh is fine by me. So, you know Gary brought it up, and he threw it into the skillet, and uh, (laughs) we ate it. We split it six ways. And you can imagine (motions again) a fish six ways, how big that goes. It's not very far.
Lydia didn't want to try the fish, I think, because she's a fishmonger, she's kind of sick of fish. And even though we've been hungry for five days, she's had enough fish in her lifetime that she doesn't need to eat a fish this big right now (motions again) when it's being split that much. And then, Morgan, Brianna, and Jamie, who are all kind of feeling a little bit down and wasting energy, um, none of them wanted the fish. Even though they're probably the three who needed it more than anyone else.
Lydia and I are getting pretty close. I get along really well with Lydia. I think that she feels really left out out here by a lot of the young kids. I think a lot of the other teammates looked at her immediately and thought that she was going to hold us back and Lydia, fact of the matter is, Lydia has a better track record in the challenges than (counts off with fingers) Rafe, than Brianna, and than Amy too. So Lydia isn't even one of the bottom three in our tribe, as far as I'm concerned. I think she's done amazing work, she hauls ass around camp. She pulls twice her body weight in palm fronds and wood every day. She's doing a great job, I'm really proud of her, and she's proud of herself, and she's here to push herself.
Lydia and I have spent a lot of time together down at the lake, on the dock. Uh, she was feeling pretty down the other day, feeling left out, feeling like no one wanted to listen to her. Like she couldn't be herself out here. And so I knew that that was my opportunity to get Lydia on my side and make sure she wouldn't vote for me because I'm one person around here who does listen to Lydia, and who does like her for who she is, and who...she can be herself around me. So, we talked definitely about that, about Lydia and I, watching out for each other, and making sure that if we hear anything going on about voting for somebody...you know, if I hear something about people voting for Lydia, or if Lydia hears something about people voting for me, it's getting right back to each other.

Description: After reading the cryptic Tree Mail that ends them to the grueling Reward Challenge, Nakum prepares. Blake, who has been suffering physically, isnít too pleased about the prospect.
(Judd and Bobby Jon retrieve treemail and bring it back to Nakum camp)
Judd: Got some treemail, folks!
?male: Yeah baby!
Judd: Looks like fish and tackle. I think we might be winning some water too.
Cindy: Want me to read it? Okay. (Reads treemail)
Judd: Probably fishing stuff.
Cindy: Well Blake, you going to be able to do it?
Brooke (Confessional): We just got treemail. It kind of came at an unfortunate time because Blakeís been sick and kind of got us worried. So weíre trying to keep him up and walking since he seems to gets really light-headed and he breathes too fast when he sits down.
Blake (Confessional): Iím frustrated that we have a challenge right now because I figured by tomorrow Iíd be able to support my team. At this point it hasnít helped me out, being the person who gets the attention while everyone else is carrying their load!
Not That Thereís Anything Wrong

Description: After self-described ďbumĒ Jaime provides a succinct assessment of his Yaxha tribemates, said tribemates try to determine whether Brian is gay. Brian insists heís straight, but does his favorite color suggest otherwise?
Jaime (Confessional): We got the most diverse group there. We got a bum (points to himself), we got a police officer, we got a magicianís assistant, we got a makeup artist, and we got fishmonger. We got a gay guy. And we all come together. Itís brilliant.
(Gratuitous shot of Stephenie bathing)
(Amy, Jaime, Rafe, Brian, and Morgan are sitting and talking)
Rafe: Cause you just canít stay with that Ė
Morgan: No, you canít. Itís a dealbreaker.
: Yeah, itís a dealbreaker.
Amy: You might be able to work something out -
Rafe: Iíve taught. Iíve been taught before. Letís just take a second (laughs), step back
Rafe: Go over some basics.
Morgan: Oh I love you!
Amy: When a guy kisses a Ė thereís a chance.
Rafe: Yeah, that will be the reward (laughs)
Brian: Maybe weíll get some cabana boys as a reward.
Jaime (Confessional): When I first got here I met Rafe and I met Brian, and I thought Brian was gay because his voice sounded -
Rafe: (Holding up his blue buff) Iím glad weíre blue. I like this color.
Brian: Iím glad weíre blue too.
Rafe: Whatís your favorite color?
Brian (Confessional): Itís happened before. People have thought that I was gay before because Iím very well mannered, Iím very clean and very classy. But it doesnít faze me. I know Iím straight, and any girl Iím with me knows Iím straight.
(Lydia holding wooden block between her legs and Brian grinding corn on it; Jaime and Morgan talking)
Lydia: Thatís not easy, Iíll tell ya.
Jaime: I think Brianís gay. Do you think heís gay?
Morgan: No, I donít.
Morgan (Confessional): If Brian did say, ďMorgan, Iím gay, Iíve been lying to youĒ I wouldnít be surprised. But I respect him. If he says heís not, heís not.
Morgan: (Twirling a long stick in her hand) Weíre having a twirling challenge.
Amy: Iím good. I can do it. Did you twirl when you were a little girl?
Amy: (Gets a stick and twirls it with both hands) I can twirl it like this. This stuff.
Morgan: Ooo! You go, girl!
Rafe (Confessional): Yaxha is totally a female tribe. The kind of women power, support each other, be a collective, and then go out and kick ass in the challenges.

Description: Setting out at what Brandon describes as ďthe butt-crack of dawn,Ē the hungry Nakum tribemates catch fish and enjoy a tiny feast. Brandon makes an equally colorful prediction about what might happen later.
DC Notes: Did they already air this footage on the show?
(Nakum out in boat at sunrise)
Brandon (Confessional): We decided we were going to wake up early this morning and go fishing. So we got up at the butt-crack of dawn. Weíre like, ďAll right, weíre going to get us some big fish.Ē
(Brandon catches a fish)
Everyone: Good job! Yay! All right!
Blake (Confessional): Today it just felt great to get on the boat and I want to get out there and fish so bad. Iím feeling better a little bit right now. Iím not panting as much. Hopefully at some point Iíll just beat this and contribute a greater value to the group.
Blake: I got one! I got one I got one!
Brandon (Confessional): I outsmarted the fish. Imagine that. (Laughs) Take a lot. (Shows fish to camera) I think we need to take a scale and measure this bad boy. Think itís some kind of record or something. Itís huge (itís about the size of his hand).
(Nakum cooking fish over fire)
??female: Blake got the big one and Brandon got all the little ones.
??male: Probably some of the best fish Iíve ever had just because Iím so hungry (laughs)
Brandon (Confessional): Everyone just got a little pinch Ė like pinch it with these three fingers and that was it. But itíll make a turn, I guess.
(Nakum eating fish)
??female: Oh god, this is so good.
