You voted, overwhelmingly, for “close to 10 contestants” to be eliminated this round. Which means that the results are going to be tragic, but not as widespread as they could be.
But let’s take a moment to think about that though - we have made it to the Top 69 contestants! When you take into consideration Second Chance, there have been something like 323 contestants to come through these doors this season! You are the TOP 69 of those!
So, even if you go out this round - give yourself a huge round of applause. Because that is an amazing accomplishment in and of itself.
You should be very proud.
Hopefully everyone knows that they should be playing the Home Game, and how grateful everyone is for them coming out in the first place. It’s cliche, I know, but it’s still very much the truth.
I’ll cut right to the chase from here. Because otherwise I’ll keep talking all night to keep from pulling the trigger! Some of these people are friends, and others are folks that I've gotten the chance to know over the course of this season, and really, I hope that one day that I can count them as such as well. . .
It's one more reason why I might joke about "Gary Only Voting" but that's a burden that I would never want on my own shoulders.
Leaving us this week are: (and it worked out to 10 exactly. Otherwise it would have been over 15, it was a CLOSE one)
Goodbye, and thank you, for everything!
