I decided I should stop being dismissive and at least go look at the original scene again. I also found another topic on this being discussed at Sucks:
I decided to post the whole speech by Jeff along with ALL the reaction shots from beginning to end. I will caption the shots with the castaway who is giving the main reaction that the camera seems to be singling out, and I've put the secondary characters in parentheses.
There is one more twist. When you are voted out at Tribal Council, you will not go home.
MATT (Natalie, Andrea, Ashley, Francesca)
Instead, you will leave Tribal Council, and you will be sent to Redemption Island, where you will live alone. You will have the same basic supplies that your tribemates have back at camp, but it will be up to YOU
KRISTINA (Francesca, Philip, Grant in background)
to keep the shelter going
It will be up to you to tend the fire
It'll be up to YOU to feed yourself
ASHLEY (Matt, Francesca, Philip, Kristina to sides and back)
It will not be easy
DAVID (half of Stephanie)
When the next person joins you on Redemption Island
RUSSELL (Steve and David in background)
The two of you will square off in a duel
MIKE (his vocal reaction is purpose of shot, plus Krista, Steve)
The WINNER stays
GRANT (ROB on side)
is out of the game for good.
ROB (nodding, Grant to side).
At a certain point in the game, the remaining person on Redemption Island
will be allowed to re-enter the game
ASHLEY (center), MATT, FRANCESCA (choice of three?)
and continue their pursuit of the title of Sole Survivor and the Million Dollar Prize.
STEVE (says Sweet.)
HOBBIT ON CRACK confessional
These are the players who are highlighted:
Russell, Russell confessional
Sent to RI as of Ep 6 who were featured:
Matt, Russell, Kristina, Krista
Sent to RI but didn't get a reaction shot focus:
Got a focus shot but not yet to RI:
David, Steve, Mike -- Zapatera
Ashley, Grant, Rob -- Ometepe
Fully in a reaction shot but not the focus:
Francesca, Natalie, Andrea
Marginally in a reaction shot (split in half or head only)
Not in any reaction shot:
Sarita, Julie, Ralph
The word WINNER is juxtaposed to GRANT.
The word LOSER is juxtaposed to STEVE. However, so is Million Dollar Prize.
10 castaways out of 18 were featured -- meaning a focused shot.
4 were pre-merge voted off. 6 candidates are left to fill 2 more spots (using michel's estimate of 8 pre-merge boots).
If you want to count Francesca, I won't argue, but she really was more in the shots than the focus. It was Ashley who was laughing or dropping her jaw, and the others were more standing next to her -- just as Matt was always shown with 2-4 other Ometepe, but he was the focus of the first group because he said WHAT???
