Harry (6 hrs, 40 min), 2. Pia (right after), 1. Baden wins! Both Harry and Pia request JLP's help to get off the structure.

Final Tribal Council

Baden and Pia make their cases to the jury, in an open forum setting. Both face harsh questions, but Pia mostly meets the challenge, while Baden fails to convince the jurors. After voting, JLP immediately reads the votes ... after bringing Pia's and Baden's families in to stand with them as the votes are revealed. As it turns out, it's a landslide: 9 votes for Pia, zero for Baden.
