Yes, when Jeff tallies the votes, he already knows who's going to be voted out. He acts like it's a big surprise to him. He also tries to create drama by asking questions to put people on edge. He tries to get them all stirred up and it usually works.
Still, I like it the way it was when you actually saw them holding up their votes. Is it because of the redemption island thing? The one voted out isn't really voted out in this season. They just go to the island and are finally out when they lose the challenge.
