Gervase and Monica cannot decide to get rid of Tina or Ciera. Monica feels like she has been bullied the whole time. Tyson wants his two allies to decide. "If Monica is going to make a move, she will make it tonight, "Tina said. Do you think Gervase bullying Monica will make her sway toward voting our Gervase? Again, Monica is the swing vote tonight.
