  1. Noura had two confessionals this episode: one talking about Karishma and one talking about getting rid of Aaron. I believe Lauren had only one confessional, though.

  2. Just thought I’d point out that it says under “Tribal Council #2” that Kellee and Jamal were post-swap Vokai. Weren’t they post-swap Lairo?
