For only the third time since "Survivor" switched over to a Final 3, all three remaining castaways received votes at the Final Tribal Council.
So kudos to Missy Payne, even if her lone vote came from her daughter Baylor.
In retrospect, it's pretty impressive that Missy was even able to stand at the Final 3 at all. The owner of a Dallas-based cheerleading gym hurt her ankle in a late-season Reward Challenge and resisted Jeff Probst's insinuations that she might want to leave the game. Told by the "Survivor" medic that she could stick around if she could stand the pain, Missy refused to quit, even if it meant sitting out several of the season's most important challenges.
Perhaps that injury explains why the Jury took Missy so lightly, even though she tried to emphasize her importance in many key early votes.
In her exit interview, the season's third place finisher discusses her post-game diagnosis and the problems the injury caused for her.
Missy is also very frank about the challenges of playing the game with Baylor.
"[I]f I ever got to play again I would not play with Baylor," she says.
