After a tie vote between Lindsey Richter and Tom Buchanan at Tribal Council, Lindsey, the 27-year-old former advertising account executive from Portland, Oregon, was voted out of the Samburu tribe. Lindsey split the initial vote with Tom Buchanan, and the subsequent revote resulted in a deadlocked tie. Lindsey became the sixth Survivor to be voted out of Africa because she had received votes at previous tribal councils, whereas Tom did not. Before the second and final vote, a teary-eyed Lindsey, who earlier had considered voting against one of her allies in a last-ditch effort to save herself, explained, "On the way here tonight, my dignity took over. I dont care if I am voted out tonight, because I didnt vote for a friend of mine [Brandon]. I am leaving with my pride." Lindsey became the sixth person voted out of SURVIVOR AFRICA.
