what was the Survivor Palau final vote?
During the Survivor Palau finale, Jeff Probst only read five votes: four for Tom, and one for Katie. That leaves two votes unaccounted for. That in itself isn’t strange, since he only needed four votes to win. But the final vote total wasn’t mentioned during the reunion. And CBS.com’s slick voting history chart details every vote cast during the show except for the final. The recap doesn’t mention the vote total, either. Not to become a wackjob conspiracy theorist, but what’s going on? Did one of the remaining votes have a naughty word on it? Or Janet Jackson’s left breast? Or did someone refuse to vote? The world may never know.
