Burton’s out; Survivor Pearl Islands final four are Sandra, Lill, Darrah, and Jon.
The women finally got their act together on Survivor Pearl Islands, banding together to vote out Burton after Darrah won her third straight immunity challenge. Burton didn’t go away empty-handed; he won “a brand new GMC® ENVOY® XUV™” during the reward challenge. Burton’s departure means the final four consists of two people from each original tribe, Sandra and Jon from Drake and Lill and Darrah from Morgan. This episode had arguably one of the best lines in Survivor history (telling Jon that she swore on her kids she would vote with him, Sandra later revealed, “In my head and mumbling under my breath, I was like, ‘I’m gonna swear on my two kids that I’m gonna screw you and Burton'”), and it also had one of the most disturbing images ever (as Jon humped Burton). The two-hour finale, followed by the live one-hour reunion, airs at 8 p.m. ET Sunday.
+ also: “With Rupe gone, Jon became the reason to watch.”
