We totally called it. The biggest oh-no-they-didn't twist in "Survivor" history lasted two episodes. Although, The Slug supposes, the ramifications of dividng the tribes along racial lines will coninue to affect future alliances. We already saw that last night when the Caucasians and the Asian-Americans of the newly formed Aitu tribe voted together to oust Latino hottie Cecilia Mansilla. Let's see what Cecilia thought about all this.
The Slug: Hello Cecilia. How did y'all feel when the tribes were integrated?
Cecilia Mansilla: It was such a kick in the shin. We were not ready for that. You know, we spent the morning making the place pretty. Billy was gone so we fixed up the place. I was floored. We really needed at least another challenge to show the other tribes that throwing the competition to get Billy off was a good decision.
TS: Do you still think it was a good idea to throw the competition to get Billy out?
CM: I've been thinking about that in terms of the numbers. It most likely wouldn't have made a difference because if we would've won, Stephannie or Nate from Manihiki would be going home. It wouldn't have helped me. But I noticed that Yul said I was physically weak given that we did such a bad job at the last challenge. But if Billy was still around, he might've switched so I don't know.
TS: I liked that one of the first things you did after you integrated was tell Candice about Billy's secret love for her. Why'd you do that?
