Survivor Castoff Kelly Remington: They Got Me Good!

Originally posted 04/02/2015 05:40PM

Survivor is a numbers game. The entire point of the competition is to get and keep a numerical advantage against your opponents. Generally speaking, if you have the numbers, you're safe.

Unless you're Kelly Remington.

The tribes merged on Wednesday's episode, creating a new 12-member tribe. (In a flash of patriotism, they named their tribe "Merica," a shortened version of "America." the flag colors, of course, were red, white and blue.

In the new tribe, Remington had a tight alliance in the majority. The 44-year-old New York state trooper seemed very safe, until they decided to vote for sailing instructor Jenn Brown. What they didn't know: Brown had a hidden immunity idol, so no votes cast against her would count.

And just like that, Remington was voted off with just 4 votes out of a possible 12. Merica had spoken.

Remington tells PEOPLE what went wrong – and what viewers missed at home.

"There's no point in going into a merge if you have somebody who can't be trusted." –Bill Posley, Survivor: One World

What an episode, what a merge and what a season!

Wednesday on Survivor, the season's merge left all 12 players scrambling. Alliances shifted and reformed as each of the variously collared contestants worked to solidify old agreements and form new bonds.

Survivor's Joaquin Souberbielle: I Lost the Game – But Gained a Bromance!

You can always tell when the Survivor editors think something is funny. They play corny music in the background and slap a hashtag on the screen.

Last week was no different. During the sixth episode of Survivor: Worlds Apart, a bromance bloomed between contestants Joaquin Souberbielle and Rodney Lavoie. ("Bromance" isn't our word; CBS helpfully hashtagged it several times throughout the show.)

The other tribe members, sensing the close bond between Souberbielle and Lavoie, did what any intelligent tribe would do: they got together to vote out Souberbielle, a 27-year-old marketing director from Valley Stream, New York.

Speaking with PEOPLE, Souberbielle talks about what he did wrong – and dishes on that infamous bromance.

Generally speaking, it's a good idea to hold your tongue while playing Survivor. There will always be outspoken people who will get on your nerves; the CBS casting department sees to that. It doesn't pay to be lippy and confrontational. (That is, unless you're two-time winner Sandra Diaz Twine, who can somehow get away with it.)

"Most of the time you kinda need that social component. So when you don't win, someone's got your back – and they can take you to the end." –Brett Clouser, Survivor: Samoa

Survivor is truly a social game.

You can have all the great strategic ideas in the world. But none of it matters if you whistle out of tune or don't know how to apologize.

Wednesday night's Survivor was a testament to the importance of self-awareness and self-control. It turns out you can't curse, insult people's religion or walk around with your junk out and still win a game of influence and social politics.
