Sabrina’s sitting alone thinking. She breaks down and cries a bit about how many good things she has in her life: her family, friends, this experience, and her job as a teacher. Well, her job as a teacher until she got laid off. Regardless of the layoff, she wants to share this experience with her students. She thinks that maybe if they see she took a chance then they’ll take a chance. All they have to do it is one time.
She’s ready to get to that final tribal council and plead her case. She knows that you’ve got to go in guns blazing and be sort of merciless. “From there the game will unfold.”
A little while later the final three head out to tree mail and find the traditional final three breakfast delivery. Chelsea tells us she is so thankful to have made the final three and while of course winning the money would be great, it isn’t everything.
And with that statement, I just knew she wasn’t going to win.
Seriously. I’ll be shocked if she ends up pulling it out.
They chow down on food (just like they’ve done all fucking season) and pop open the bubbly. Kim proposes a toast.
May the best woman…..win!
Tell me RuPaul’s Drag Survivor wouldn’t be an AWESOME show!!!
We get a final little blurb from Kim who tells us that she recently got divorced and this game has been a great boost to her confidence. It’d also be a great FUCK YOU to her ex if she wins!
The time has come at last for the final tribal council. Jeff brings in the jury and then it’s time for some opening statements.
Chelsea is first. She tells the jury that everyone knows that a pair is extremely important and having one person that you can really trust can take you really far in the game. It’s probably no surprise to any of them that she and Kim were a pair from the start. They braided each other’s hair, told each other secrets, and talked about each and every vote.
She says her game had to change at the merge; it was at that point that she told herself that she needed to stop playing with her heart and play with her head. It’s then that she became the hard-ass, hard-hearted Chelsea. She’s thinking now that that approach may have not been the wisest way to go if they all decide to vote emotionally.
I’m really a nice person. I swear!
Time for Kim. She starts out by saying she loves this game. She says she always thought of it as poker; you do everything you can do to sit right where she’s sitting at the end. That’s where her head was walking into this. She’s proud of the way she played strategically, but she does admit that voting each of them out did take a toll on her emotionally.
Every time she was tempted to make a decision in the game she thought of her family back home and the things she’s hoping to provide them with. She says she’s known them (the jury) for twenty or thirty days, but her family has been pouring themselves into her for years and years, and that’s what really kept her going. She hopes they can all see it as a game and that they can forgive her. She’s not even going to say she would take any of it back because at the end of the day her goal was to get to the end and that’s right where she is.
Wow. Simple, straightforward, AND no apologizing??? Love it.
Now it’s Sabrina’s turn. She says everyone comes in with a different strategy. Her goal was to keep balance in the game and not be seen as a threat in challenges, so she scaled back her performance in them. She also chose to allow Kim to be the messenger in terms of being the one that delivered the news about certain votes. In other words, she let Kim take all the blame for the blindsides, but was one of the masterminds behind them as well. Also, she just got laid off from her teaching job right before coming on Survivor, so she really needs that money.
