Saboga tribe dissolved, and Richard Hatch is Mogo Mogo’s first casualty.
For Saboga, losing the reward challenge meant losing their tribe, as Survivor All-Stars unveiled its first big twist. The two victorious tribes selected new members, a la a game of elementary school dodge ball, and Mogo Mogo picked Ethan first, with the goal of getting rid of him. Jerri also joined Mogo Mogo, while Chapera picked Rupert and got Jenna L., who was last to be chosen. After losing the immunity challenge, Mogo Mogo switched tracks, with Colby, Ethan, and Lex aligning to boot Richard. Although Rich caught on to Colby’s plan (“How dare you?…You must go bye bye now.”), his entire tribe turned against him, and the player who wrote the rules on the first Survivor found his strategy turned against him. But he will linger on: Rich rubbed up against Sue while naked during the immunity challenge, and the previews for next week’s episode showed an angry, crying Sue yelling at Jeff Probst According to Jeff Varner’s report on the TV Guide Channel, a female contestant “decides to quit, threatening legal action” after “a nude male contestant physically contacts a female contestant.”
