  1. About Joe being on jury 3 times. I would like to point out that isn’t a guarantee he might come back and be in the final 3

    • He is currently on the jury, so regardless of whether he comes back in, he was on the jury in this season

  2. So with Victoria getting 0 confs this episode, that means only Aubry – the first eliminated – has the perfect confessional count from Kama. That is ridiculous.
