Tyson votes himself out of Survivor and, worse, saves Russell + reality blurred

This unfolded in a pretty incredible way, and that troll Russell did something smart yet again. The Villains alliance wanted to get rid of Parvati and flush out Russell’s idol, so they decided to split their votes 3-3. With Danielle, Parvati, and Russell voting for one person, that’d force a re-vote even if Russell played his idol. Rob insisted that this would be the best way to ensure that they got the idol and Russell, and Tyson was assigned to vote for Russell.

While Russell anticipated that they might do this (“That would be a genius move. I don’t know if they’re that smart.”), he talked to Tyson and said he’d vote for Parvati, too. Apparently, Tyson believed Russell, so the vote then would have been 4-3-2, with Parvati going home. If that’s the outcome Tyson wanted, he didn’t have to do anything. But instead he changed his vote, apparently just to pile on (it doesn’t make sense to change it for any other reason, because even if Tyson voted for Russell, Parvati still would have had four votes).

Somewhat ironically, Tyson told me pre-game that he wanted to be “more cutthroat” because “I got screwed last time by maybe not playing as hard as I could have at a certain point in the game, this time, I’m chopping everybody down.” Of course, he only chopped himself down, which is even funnier considering that he also told me, “I need to prepare for Tribal Council like I’m being voted out.” Didn’t think about that this time, did you, buddy?

  1. Hey Gina -
    New Follower here!
    As for Heros vs. Villians - I am a huge fan. I love Russell. I am totally in to all the drama he brings to the game. I love how he hides things around camp. I think it is great! I hope he stays until the end!

  2. I agree with you. I really do think Russell should have won the last Survivor. I am a huge fan also. I also love Boston Rob. I hope Russell or Boston Rob win this time.
