His plea for a million includes an offer to give half of it to Rupert. If his only way to win Survivor money is from this Survivor popularity contest, it's pathetic and he sucks. If I was "the best player never to win" i would want the money by winning, not because I offered to give half my money to Rupert.
Take Tom out to dinner anyway, Jackass. Don't wait for the viewers to hand you money.
