women stay together; Chris joins them.

women stay together; Chris joins them.
The women’s alliance has yet to fragment, as the latest Survivor Vanuatu castoff was Sarge, who became the first member of the jury. Two men remain, Chris and Chad. Interestingly, Chris voted for Sarge, cryptically saying, “This is for you, not against you.” Additionally, Sarge and Chad each voted for a different woman, suggesting their alliance fragmented before tribal council, or suggesting that they’re just dumb and couldn’t get their act together. Previews for next week suggest Scout moves to ally herself with the men, but this could just be Mark Burnett being sneaky. Will the remaining women stick together and leave us with an all-female final six?
+ columnist: If alliance holds, “the rest of the country–so afraid of gay marriage–may find some sad validation of their fears through the domination of lesbian-temptress, man-hating Ami.”
