Brigitte voted out... for now

2006-10-23 06:40
Cape Town - Oh good grief. Brigitte gets ousted four votes to three in the newly merged tribe called Burba (pardon me) and then gets handed a life on Dead Man's Island - where she may be able to re-enter the game.

This is the most twisted game of Survivor ever - there are more lives being handed out than there are bugs on the Panama islands.

I've lost count of how many times Brigitte has been close to being voted off - and now when she is, she's handed another life! Okay, granted - it's not much of a life, but it's a one-in-a-million shot. Ha! Ha! A million - get it? *Ahem* I think I'd rather go home. What's R1m anyway? That's the equivalent of a furnished three-bedroom flat in Durban.

So the Rana and Aguila tribes have merged and the new tribe is called Burba (pardon me again), where the alliances are still steadfastly held in the old tribes.

All four tribe members in Rana singled out sports model Brigitte Willers, who was relegated to Dean Man's Island - but without the other contestants knowing. So everyone who gets booted from now on will be stranded on this pokey little island.

At an opportune moment, the masterminds behind Survivor will stage a duel for the castaways, which will allow them to reclaim a final crack at that three-bedroom flat... I mean, R1m.

At this week's immunity challenge the Survivors had to jump into a mud pit and drain as much mud a possible from their bodies into a bucket. Gareth, formerly from Rana, won the challenge, thereby denying the old members of Aguila, who are in the minority in Burba, the opportunity to secure a solid place in the game.

If Mzi gets voted off, I'll be sad. But then again, he could start his presidential pursuit.
