Survivor

Despite Samburu's early winning streak, the tribe was fractured by two conflicting alliances defined by age. With the younger members Silas, BrandonLindsey, and Kim P. banding together to eliminate their older peers, Carl and his fellow older members Frank, Teresa, and Linda had formed their own alliance out of necessity. The older members felt that the younger members were too lazy, while the younger members perceived the older members as too abrasive and overworking. When the rival Boran tribe won the Day 8 Immunity Challenge, the two Samburu alliances clashed at Tribal Council, where the younger alliance deemed Carl as too wealthy and successful for being a prominent dentist. Carl and the rest of the elder alliance have pooled their votes on Lindsey for being too immature and having a questionable desire for the game. The vote ended in a 4-4 tie vote. When the re-vote did not help, a tiebreaker challenge ensued. After a streak of wrong answers from both Carl and Lindsey, the former missed a question, while the latter answered correctly, thus kicking the dentist out of the tribe.
