Season 19, Episode 15 | December 20th, 2009
On the morning of Day 37, Russell calmly informs his sleepy tribemates that treemail has arrived. As Jaison, Natalie, Brett and Mick lay in the shelter, Russell reads treemail. “Use balance, speed and patience to fight to the final four,” he reads. Jaison complains of having stomach issues, which agitates Russell. “We have to get rid of Brett. It’s a shame that I’m set up with these bunch of misfits because I should be here with superstars,” says Russell. Jaison has a chat with Mick by the ocean on the subject of ousting Brett. “None of us really have a chance as long as Brett’s here, so we have to keep going after him,” says Jaison. While Mick and Jaison contemplate voting out Natalie if Brett wins immunity again, Russell warns Natalie about what is happening in order to ensure that she will give it her all at the upcoming challenge. “Unfortunately, they want to beat Brett so bad at the next immunity challenge that, you know, there’s honestly probably no way that I could beat Brett,” says Natalie. As the Foa Foa Four prepare to take on Brett in the upcoming immunity challenge, Russell tells it like it is. “He’s not some superstar to me. You start thinking that, you start getting weak in the mind thinking you can’t beat him – like you’re stepping in the ring with Mike Tyson. He’s no Mike Tyson. He’s Brett,” says Russell.
