Survivor: Cagayan -- Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty's post-merge Solarrion tribe voted out Jefra Bland during Wednesday night's broadcast of the CBS reality series' 28th edition.
Jefra, a 22-year-old former Miss Kentucky Teen USA from Campbellsville, KY, was voted out of her Solarrion tribe at the season's eleventh Tribal Council session, which marked the fifth time Solarrion had attended Tribal together.
"Clearly somebody in the five alliance flipped on me. I suspect [Yung "Woo" Hwang] and [Tony Vlachos] because if Tony wanted to get me out, then Woo went right along with it, so they fooled me! And I wish I would've jumped ship at Tribal sooner when I had the chance, but I'm not a person who lives with regrets, so it's how I played the game and this is how I have to go out," Jefra said following her ouster.
Jefra, who was in the majority alliance of five, got voted out of the game via a 4-3 vote against Spencer Bledsoe when Tony, a 39-year-old police officer from Jersey City, NJ, and his closest ally Woo, a 29-year-old martial arts instructor from Newport Beach, CA, chose to flip on the five-person alliance -- which was also comprised of Trish Hegarty and Kassandra "Kass" McQuillen.
Tony decided to betray Jefra in order to prevent the women from being able to potentially form an all-female alliance of four and turn on himself and Woo.
Tony and Woo worked with the game's two outsiders Spencer, a 21-year-old student from Chicago, IL, and Latasha "Tasha" Fox, a 37-year-old accountant from St. Louis, MO, to get Jefra out. Spencer had also planted a seed in Tony's mind that Jefra had wanted to target him at the previous Tribal Council, so Tony grew paranoid and felt it was necessary to vote her out of the tribe on Night 30.
Tony and Woo's move not only blindsided Jefra, but it also shocked Trish, a 48-year-old pilates instructor from Needham, MA, and Kass, a 41-year-old attorney from Tehachapi, CA. The three women were convinced Spencer was the one going home after Tasha won Individual Immunity at the challenge.
In addition, Tony won a clue to a hidden Immunity Idol at the Reward Challenge, which was the always-popularSurvivor auction. He ended up finding his third idol in the game although he had already played one of them. Tony also still has the idol with "special powers" in his pocket.
Survivor: Cagayan -- Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty's jury now consists of Jefra, Sarah Lacina, Morgan McLeod, LJ McKanas, and Jeremiah Wood.
