Three years later, 'Survivor: All-Stars' Tina Wesson finally gets her torch snuffed
By Reality TV World staff, 02/02/2004
Wasting no time in putting what was no doubt their long-anticipated "boot the previous winners" strategy into action, during the premiere of CBS' Survivor: All-Stars, the four non-ultimate Survivor members of the losing Saboga tribe voted to boot Tina Wesson, the 42-year-old winner of Survivor: The Australian Outback, from the game.
Ethan Zohn, the 30-year-old "nice guy" winner of Survivor: Africa and only Saboga tribe member to vote with Tina, can't be feeling very secure in his position in the tribe -- particularly since his "who better to take to the Final 2 than a previous winner" defense seemed to be getting little support from the other Saboga tribe members before their trip to their first Tribal Council session. Nor did his "championship sports teams aren't prevented from playing again the next season" argument appear to go over very well at the Tribal Council session. Unless Ethan is able to somehow convince one of what appears to be two quickly-formed Saboga sub-alliances (Rupert/Rudy and Jerri/Jenna) to ally with him versus the other sub-alliance, it appears as though Ethan's time in Survivor: All-Stars will come to a quick and unmemorable end.
The week's correct bootee prediction starts our Survivor: All-Stars prediction record off at 1-0.
