Voting Confessionals

Mel, sorry but when ur rude af u get my vote ok bye


The odds of you leaving tonight are slimmer than Barbie's waist, but I'll take my chances.


sorry mel. but i could tell i was personally your target and we ain't havin none of that boo. also, you've been rude to your own teammates too many damn times. it's team work that makes the dream work baby, and that's something you don't seem to have any of.


Sorry I'm just not a big fan of you!


You are a snake. You have no idea what honesty and loyalty is and i hope karma bites you in the ass.


I was hoping this would be a blindside, but you're probably expecting this.


Michael, my man, you already know me voting you is nothing personal as I think you're a great guy. This is solely for reasons of loyalty, as voting you is the best shot at Mel staying, however unlikely that may be.
