Survivor Vanuatu tribes merge; women stick together and vote off Rory.

Survivor Vanuatu tribes merge; women stick together and vote off Rory.
The two tribes are now one on Survivor Vanuatu, and the series is down to the nine men and women who will form the jury. That jury will consist of seven people from the six women and just three men who remain, after Rory was voted off last night. He was the victim of the women’s alliance, which despite Twila and Julie’s false promises to their new guy friends, stuck together. The men were down in numbers anyway after systematically voting off all of the young guys, even after the tribes were shuffled.
