J.T. gets to work on his puzzle, but Stephen is fairly close behind.
Taj and Erinn follow a little ways back, and everyone is now getting to
work on the puzzle. Erinn looks to be catching up, and Stephen is
making up some ground. J.T. gets down to one piece remaining, but has
no idea where it goes. He messed something up, but he finishes first,

Stephen talks a little about looking out for number one. Probst calls
Stephen out, in a kind of brutal manner. I think Taj might be bounced
tonight. Erinn gives herself a 33% chance of making it through this

Taj has been voted out, blind-sided by her two dudes. She does not
look terribly pleased, the jury is very surprised and Erinn takes it
all in stride. In her post-interview, Taj says that if Erinn finds a
way to weasel herself into the final two, she has her vote. <<PREVIOUS (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) NEXT>>
