Agree. When he kept saying "I apologize for ... whatever" that says he has no real idea of what he did wrong and was figuring just saying sorry would cover it. I have little respect for people who think just saying sorry makes everything all right and clears their conscience, without really understanding what they did wrong and committing to changing their ways in future. Agree and that's part of what I meant by overthinking that vote. Plus Laura B *is* a wild card - which can be a very bad thing at merge. If they were to merge now, Laura B might easily find a home in the other tribe of loved ones who are down in numbers and need anyone they can get. Tyson seems to have forgotten his first season, when he was on a winning tribe with large alliance set to obliterate the other tribe at merge. But Erinn - the low man on their totem pole - defected, which IIRC was the turning point that opened the door to JT and Stephen riding it right to the end.
