Tribes Merge, Lex Booted on 'Survivor'
Rob's words didn't match the tribal council's actions after Lex -- who earlier had saved Rob's girlfriend, Amber Brkich -- lost a tightly contested Immunity Challenge.
"I made a potentially game-ending blunder in agreeing to keep Amber and get rid of Jerri (Manthey), and I think I may be about to pay for it," Lex said before the big boot. He also lamented his decision to trust "Boston Rob" (Mariano), whom he felt was playing dirty -- and betraying their friendship.
After the 7-2 vote against him, a stunned Lex said, "I came into this game the wealthiest man in the world. I have an amazing wife, two beautiful sons, a loving family and the greatest group of friends a man could ever hope for. Everything above and beyond that is gravy as far as I'm concerned."
Lex, as it so happens, will have a hand in ladling out the gravy to someone else. He becomes the first member of the jury that will decided who will win the $1-million prize.
