Kyle doesn't really care for this line of thought. Darnell goes on to say that even though he lost the mask, he still paddled and he still pushed the boat, while Alecia did absolutely nothing, but stand around and look at the puzzle. And he's absolutely right. There's no way around it, Alecia is easily the weak link on the tribe and she didn't even really try to be anything but. As Darnell talks about how he hasn't had it easy in life, Kyle whispers that he's not sure they're voting the right one. Jenny whispers back that she doesn't want to vote Darnell. She admits to Jeff that his story really tugs at her. And with that, it's time to vote.
We see Alecia try to vote for Darnell by writing with the marker cap still on the marker. Cydney votes for Alecia, saying that she's starting to hurt her soul. Ouch. Other than that, we see no votes. Jeff heads over to tally. First vote: Alecia. Darnell. Alecia. Darnell. Alecia. Darnell. Oh no!! A tie on the very first vote. What??? So, Scot, Kyle, Cydney and Jenny will all vote again. This time we see no votes as they're cast. After tallying them up again, Jeff reads the votes and they're all for Darnell. And the first vote of Survivor: Kaoh Rong is Soh Wrong. That guy was gonna bust his ass for this tribe and they sent him home over the laziest person on this season. Bad move, but...it's not like they're the Brains tribe, is it? I'll go ahead and point out that it was Cydney and Kyle who voted for Alecia the first time around and changed the votes to Darnell on the second go around. It'll be interesting to see how they play that off, especially Kyle, who has an alliance with Scot and Jenny.
Next time on Survivor: Debbie is off the rails and not fitting in with her Brains tribe at all, meanwhile there's a Survivor bro-mance in the making on Beauty between Caleb and...Tai? That's right. Can't wait to see how THAT plays out.
Thanks so much for reading and for your patience as it took so long to get this recap finished. I hope to do much better in the coming weeks and get this out much sooner. ‘Til next time, kids, take care!
