Our debut Jury member, Meryl, arrived at her first Tribal Council looking radiant:
And when Cobus uttered this memorable analogy:
She was all of us!
Undoubtedly expecting her ally Dante to be in the firing line, she looked genuinely surprised as Geoffrey’s name kept coming up:
While it’s true that Meryl and Geoffrey did not get along great – he effectively engineered her exit – their reunion on Ponderosa was… pleasant?
Geoffrey also admitted to being “somewhat of a villain in everyday life”:
This has definitely been on display at Tribal Councils, and at his first alongside Meryl, they listened intently to the many analogies being concocted:
The answer is – yes!
And this was their reaction to Seipei’s epic blindside:
Seipei arrived at her first Tribal in all-leather and with a spoon around her neck. To dish up the spice, perhaps?
When Rob suggested to Nico that Seipei had become untrustworthy, it was met with disbelief:
Enjoy the Jury’s reactions to Jacques and Steffi’s spat:
When Dante arrived at Ponderosa, the Jury were noting how none of the other castaways were playing for the Jury:
It REALLY kicked off at the next Tribal Council though – or should that be Laetitia’s “Trouble Council”?
Geoff made his feelings about Rob known from the get-go:
Dante has eye-rolls for days!
Geoff’s observation of Durao = on the nose:
And he wasn’t holding back about Nicole:
He almost died when Nicole said she was willing to leave the game based on trust!
Meryl was equally amused:
Lap up these reactions to Jacques not playing his immunity idol after saying he definitely would:
Turned out he didn’t need to – when Steffi got word that she was being targeted by Cobus, she changed her vote and effectively eliminated a tied vote, and Cobus joined the Jury. He had a wink for his former tribemates at his first Tribal:
Geoffrey was aghast when Nicole said she needed the immunity idol “for the tribe and for an alliance” – Dante just rolled his eyes, again…
“We don’t tolerate that.”
Cobus can’t hold it together as Jacques explains Steffi’s voting faux pas:
When Jacques explains that he used a “very negative and offensive word”:
Incredulity when Jacques tells Nico he’s been banned from talking strategy:
Then Jacques became Tribal Council catalyst, playing his idol:
And made it clear he was voting Rob:
Aw man, Mmaba – and Nico tried so hard!
LOL Dante – looks like the real fireworks are on the Jury side of Tribal Council!
