alliance shatters as LeAnn is voted off.
The women’s alliance almost survived the entire season of Survivor Vanuatu, but instead, it crumbled, leaving one man standing (Chris), one woman stunned (Ami), and an audience baffled that all of this was masterminded by the one who seemed to be a few crackers short of a jack (Twila). And either way the vote went, Chris would have been spared, as the alliance decided to target bug-eyed Eliza. Ami, LeAnn, and Julie voted for Eliza, but Scout and Twila, joined by Chris and Eliza, turned on LeAnn and swallowed her whole. All of this came after the tear-inducing reunion with family members. Jeff Probst faked out the contestants with a “web cast,” which like a bad horror movie, was actually coming from the island. All of the loved ones, including Ami’s girlfriend (the first we’ve heard of her), joined the contestants for the immunity challenge, which Ami won.
