[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched tonight’s episode of Survivor: San Juan del Sur.]
Memo to future Survivor contestants: Stop doing nice things for people! Because every time you do, it comes back to haunt you. Jeremy Collins learned this the hard way after he and Natalie gave up their reward feast to Jon and Jaclyn — and he then got sent to Exile Island and voted out of the game. Jeremy joins a long list of people (Erik and Brandon giving up immunity, Brenda giving up her loved ones reward, Lex saving Boston Rob’s girlfriend Amber, etc…) who showed nobility, only to be voted out soon — if not immediately — after.
Not to make Jeremy and Natalie out like saints. Clearly, their move was to curry favor with their new alliance members. But it didn’t work. And Jeremy’s vote-out was actually a direct result of his sacrifice, since he was then sent to Exile Island — after which Jon realized he might get caught in a lie about finding the hidden immunity idol so hatched his plan to get him out. If Jeremy had stayed put on the yacht reward feast, he would most likely still be in the game.
Elsewhere, Keith told us how he doesn’t bother talking to most of the women, Reed rifled through Keith’s bag and found evidence of an idol, and Baylor won immunity in a challenge that was a foot fetishist’s dream. Now the season’s two best players — Josh and Jeremy — are gone.
My full recap will be up later [UPDATE: Dalton’s recap is now live], but you can sound off now on what went down. Also enjoy our pre-game interview with Jeremy and Val in the video player below, and for more Survivor scoop, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.
