Shii Ann wins immunity; Alicia walks.

Shii Ann wins immunity; Alicia walks.
Shii Ann won immunity during last night’s Survivor All-Stars, thereby forcing, for the first time, the remaining Chapera tribe members to vote off one of their own. That person was Alicia, who vowed revenge from the jury because she thought she had a deal with Rob. Although she didn’t call them names (“Stupid people, stupid people, let me just say that again, stupid players”) to their faces, she did gloat after winning immunity (“Take that!”), likely securing herself a one-way ticket to loser island the next time she doesn’t have immunity. Two Thursday night episodes remain before the live May 9 finale.
