‘Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X’ Episode 9 Results: Tribal Council Explodes!

Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X aired its ninth episode tonight, and we saw a lot of people stepping up their strategic game, particularly Jay and Taylor, two of the victims of last week’s blindside of Michelle.

Jay felt condescended towards by Adam, while Taylor also continued to hold a grudge against Adam for the elimination of Figgy. But when Ken defeated Taylor to win immunity, we were left with a situation where the vote was between Taylor and Jay. This is when the two outsiders pulled a pretty great move. At Tribal Council, Taylor came clean about his secret, that he stole food and buried it in a secret spot away from the rest of his tribemates. He did this so that Adam would have no leverage against him. This allowed Taylor to reveal Adam’s reward challenge advantage without fear of reprisal. In a pretty brilliant move, Taylor implanted the fear of Adam stealing a loved ones reward in everyone’s head. The big question, of course, is whether or not this would be enough to mitigate the damage of Taylor stealing food, and Jay partaking in that food.

TAYLOR is voted out of SURVIVOR: MILLENNIALS VS. GEN X and becomes the second member of the jury!

On the way out, Taylor apologizes for eating all the food. Then, in his exit interview, he celebrates how much he accomplished in the game, while stating he has a girlfriend he can’t wait to go sailing with after this.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I still think Adam is pretty dangerous to leave in the game. If he uses that reward advantage to steal an advantage in a crucial immunity challenge, that could potentially change the game and swing it in his favor, even if, right now, it doesn’t look like he’d win even if he did get to the end. With that having been said, I’m always in awe of people who have idols, and their ability to somehow know when they don’t have to play it. That was a MASSIVE risk by Jay, and it somehow worked out for him. I really wonder if it would have been a Jay landslide if Taylor had never brought up the food, or if people were so mad at Taylor that some people changed their votes. I mean, I seriously doubt anybody changed plans mid-stream, but people did seem pretty upset at Taylor.
