Chad says women’s alliance formed because Ami “is not a big fan of the man.”
The latest victim of the Survivor Vanuatu women’s alliance, Chad Crittenden, seems to say that the women’s alliance formed because of Ami’s sexual orientation. “Ami had gotten the women against men because she’s not a big fan of the man,” Chad tells TV Guide. He says when entering the female-dominated tribe, “I thought going in it was going to be one of my advantages. I grew up most of my life with just my mom and my sister, I work with almost exclusively women and I get along really well with women.” He also says he’s annoyed with his friend Chad for lying about what Sarge told him before Sarge’s final tribal council: “That was totally underhanded and I’m going to get him for that. We’re pretty good buddies, but I can’t believe that he did that!”
