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

That jury will consist of seven people from the six women and just three men who remain, after Rory was voted off last night.

The men were down in numbers anyway after systematically voting off all of the young guys, even after the tribes were shuffled.
