Like so many "Survivor" decisions, Wednesday (March 26) night's "Survivor: Cagayan" vote came down to trust. With a Merge coming, the remaining trio of Brains had to decide who they could trust not to flip.
Would they trust Sarah, who might reunite with the majority of her Brawn tribe?
Would they trust Jeremiah, who may or may not have gotten a clue to an Immunity Idol and may or may not have lied about it?
Or would they trust Alexis, who professed loyalty, but had two chums -- LJ and Jefra -- remaining on the other tribe?
In the end, the Brains didn't really consider targeting Sarah and they opted to trust Jeremiah, even while not quite believing him, leaving Alexis blindsided and crying.
Although she was placed on the Beauty tribe for the purposes of this "Survivor" season, Alexis Maxwell is a student at Northwestern, which isn't too shabby, and despite her disappointment at being eliminated, she makes no excuses for what she describes as "rookie mistakes."
In her exit interview, she explains why she wouldn't have flipped, at least not post-Merge. She discusses her gaffe in not believing Jeremiah's version of the Idol story. And she talks about why Sarah was never targeted for Wednesday's vote.
