And then the Beauty Tribe was gone.
Had the Beauty Tribe been functional, perhaps they could have made a go of things after the Merge. They made the Merge with four players, same as the Brawn tribe, one more than the Brain tribe. And when Sarah was blindsided post-Merge, Beauty had a plurality and theoretically could have bonded with anybody to take power.
With no particular unity, though, the Beauty tribe failed to mount any sort of strategy. First, Morgan went out without a whimper. Then L.J. was blindsided. Then Jeremiah knew he was doomed.
Finally, on this week's "Survivor: Cagayan," Jefra Band became the last Beauty castaway sent packing, blindsided by Tony, who feared that a gender-based alliance might be the only thing that could halt his paranoid scurry to the million.
Jefra, who previously expected elimination and then was spared after Kass flipped, faced her torch-snuffing with a smile.
In her exit interview, the two-time Miss Kentucky runner-up discusses her tribe's early demise and what it says about "beauty" as a "Survivor" attribute. She explains her end-game strategy and why she stuck with Tony, rather than trying to blindside him. And she remembers the flood of emotions on the night Kass' flip spared her.
