Survivor Palau down to four, ends Sun.

Survivor Palau down to four, ends Sun.
After a dramatic episode, Survivor Palau is down to its final four: Tom, Ian, Katie, and Jenn. The series concludes Sunday at 8 p.m. ET with a two-hour finale and a one-hour reunion. Caryn became the fifth member of the jury despite her tribal council strategy to vomit up everything she knew about the game. Who will take it all? As I argue in this essay, it seems to be anyone’s game at this point. Meanwhile, reality blurred reader C.J. Augustine writes in to note that the ad for the finale may reveal one of the votes cast. The vote Jeff Probst holds up shows (highlight to read) “the bottom hook of a J and the bottom half of an E, which would be Jenn.” Of course, one vote tells us very little; Ian received one vote last night, and what’s left of his emaciated body is still very much in the game.
