‘Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X’ Episode 7 Results: It’s a Cold-Blooded Blindside!
Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X delivered an interesting episode this week, from a strategic standpoint. There was a lot of shuffling and scrambling to figure out who to send home: the safe choice or the choice that could potentially change this game?
Ultimately, Ikabula ended up going to Tribal Council, which presented an interesting problem: would it be better to ditch one of Sunday or Bret, or would it make more sense to take advantage of Michaela’s alliance splitting the votes, and use the numbers to send her home? Jay was the one who came up with the idea to blindside Michaela, since she’s a challenge threat who’s among the smartest strategic players in the game right now. But Will made a great counterargument by noting that not only are he and Jay among Michaela’s only allies, meaning she doesn’t really have a power base, but she also knows Jay has the hidden immunity idol. So she could easily blow up their spot on the way out of they choose to blindside her.
It was an incredibly tense vote, but was it a foregone conclusion or yet another blindside? Get the results below:
SURVIVOR: MILLENNIALS VS. GEN X EPISODE 7 RESULTS
-Jeff Probst reads the votes…
MICHAELA is voted out of SURVIVOR: MILLENNIALS VS. GEN X!
In a Survivor first, Probst actually holds up the reading of the last vote to allow for Michaela’s freakout, as she confronted Jay and asked him, point-blank, if he was responsible for this sudden landslide of votes against her. Jay stares her right down and admits that, yes, he did this. It was a totally shocking, cold-blooded moment, and suddenly shoots Jay to the top of my list among players this season. Shockingly, while Michaela angrily tells him how big he’s screwed up, she doesn’t reveal that he has a hidden immunity idol.
For what it’s worth, I think this was a smart move, since Michaela probably would have gone on a challenge tear at the merge. Michaela was also remarkably game-savvy, which placed her in a prime position to potentially take over the game. But I’m not sure this necessarily makes Jay the new power player in the gamne. We won’t know until the merge, which comes next week. Should be exciting.
But what do you think of these results? Sound off in the comments!
