Lex is no longer friends with “despicable scoundrel” Rob; Kathy booted Jerri.
The friend that once called Lex van den Berghe “in tears when he was breaking up with his girlfriend” is now “a despicable scoundrel.” He says although his Survivor All-Stars co-star Rob Mariano and he were good friends before the show, he now considers Rob to be “trash.” That’s most likely because Rob back-stabbed him, lying to Lex by promising he’d be protected. Rob said he was “playing the game” and voted Lex out of the newly merged Chaboga Mogo tribe during last week’s episode. He also tells the Santa Cruz Sentinel that “he allowed tribemate Kathy Vavrick-O’Brien make the final call” about whether to boot Jerri or Amber because of his friendship with Rob.
