Holy reversals, Batman! Wednesday night’s tribal council was one of the twistiest, turniest eliminations ever on Survivor. Two surprise idols were revealed! Votes were switched! A flopper flipped! It was the most bad moves in a single episode since Big Tom did his chicken dance.
You could practically see Jeff salivating at the insanity. But whence came the madness? How did Sarah – who thought she was in a “Sarah sandwich” – somehow get eaten alive?
The episode started with both tribes frantically courting Sarah, the swing vote between two groups of five. But Sarah thought that all the courting must mean she was a queen. She pulled her best Jennifer Lopez impression and went full diva.
She strung Tony along, insisting she hadn’t made up her mind. Then she demanded that Aparri vote according to her whims and target Tony instead of Jefra, or she’d flip.
