So Long Michelle Yi
Well, I guess I should have seen this coming. I haven't taken April vacation since 2001, and that was the week that Rodger Bingham was voted off "Survivor." I'm off this week, and Michelle Yi got voted off the island.
I thought she could last much longer, but "Survivor" changed the game 3 times last night, and she was the victim. First they did a merge, then they split the merged tribe in half with a blind draw for the immunity challenge, with the winning team (half the contestants) winning group immunity -- which had never happened before. And then after Yi's team lost, they immediately went to Tribal Council to vote somebody out without a chance to strategize. And Michelle was voted out 3-2 just like that.
Sorry to see her go. As a competitive rock-climber, she was an athletic assett to her team. She was great at getting along with others. And she was sneaky, being Earl's "spy" to help run the game for her tribe... until the merge... and the new teams for the challenge... and the instant vote. Oh well. It was great fun while she lasted.
