Judd voted out of Survivor, man, and calls everyone “scumbags,” man

Survivor Guatemala‘s dominant alliance has once again eaten one of its young, man. That person, man, was Judd, who’s a doorman in New York City, man. Danni played Steph and Rafe against him, man, causing everyone except Cindy to vote against him, man.

He was not happy, man. After Jeff Probst said he’d been voted out, he said, “Thanks, guys. Hope you guys all get bit by a freakin’ crocodile. Scumbag.” Surprisingly, he did not add a “man” to the end of that. He then repeated “scumbags” as took the walk of shame.

Jam! Showbiz says that Judd “ranks as one of the most loathed players ever to light a torch”; last week, his “lie about the hidden Immunity Idol caught up with him.”

The final five are Stephenie, Rafe, Danni, Lydia, and Cindy; the series concludes a week from Sunday, after airing one more Thursday episode.
