Leann says women should have voted out Scout, rather than Eliza or Chris.

Leann says women should have voted out Scout, rather than Eliza or Chris.
The unknowing victim of the women’s alliance coup, Leann Slaby, says that the Survivor Vanuatu women should have turned on her final-four alliance member Scout rather than voting off the last remaining man. She tells TV Guide, “If we had all decided on Chris rather than Eliza, [maybe] Eliza wouldn’t have gotten wind that we were voting for her. That was another mistake–and it looked like my idea, but it wasn’t.” However, she says that she didn’t really want to vote off Chris. “Scout and Twila couldn’t stand Eliza and I was uncomfortable voting off either [Chris or Eliza], when what we should have done was voted off Scout.” Why did many of the women not like Eliza? “She was annoying at times, but she was not the hardest worker and I think, as time went by, she became less of a hard worker,” Leann says.
