Leann Stunned in Surprising Survivor Ouster
The situation was not looking good for Chris at the start of Thursday night's episode of Survivor: Vanuatu. As the sole remaining male of the Alinta tribe, the ninth season looked like it was about to come to an all-girls’ game in the final weeks, but a
surprising tribal council sent Leann Slaby off to the jury instead.
As soon as the tribe returned from last week’s council, Chris went into overdrive to save his own skin, telling the other women that Twila and Scout had approached him and Chad – who was voted out last week – in a bid to form an alliance. That cast just enough doubt to begin the bickering among the final six women. "I thought we’d at least wait until the guys were gone before we started going crazy on each other," Leann
told the camera.
At the Reward Challenge, the tribe members were provided with one-minute satellite Internet links to family and friends, with the winning teammate getting an extended conversation after the challenge. Eliza
won the challenge with ease, and host Jeff Probst brought out Eliza’s mother, as well as the rest of the contestant's family and friends, who were actually just out of sight of the camera.
Back at camp, Ami and Leann confronted Scout about siding with the men, and told her that she wouldn’t be going to the final four. Twila swore to Ami and Leann that she was with them 100 percent, but added, "Maybe if I won a million dollars, God would forgive me."
Ami won the Immunity Challenge, but back at camp, the women decided Chris deserved to stay and vowed to vote Eliza off. "It's like being in a tornado. It's crazy. I don’t even have to do something to change the game. There's six women living with me. They'll change it themselves," Chris observed.
But at the tribal council, a surprising last minute deal between Eliza, Twila, Scout and Chris broke the women’s alliance and sent Leann packing.
