'Survivor: Island of the Idols' Season 39: Elaine is eliminated during tribal council and fans are disappointed
'Survivor: Island of the Idols' Season 39 returned to our screens on Wednesday night, and we witnessed an emotional elimination. This week it was Elaine who received the highest votes during tribal council and was sadly eliminated.
Elaine has been a fan-favorite since the beginning and even though it was a competition, she did grow on the contestants who were equally saddened by her elimination but had to go on because it was a competition after all.
It seemed like Elaine knew she was the underdog for this week now that Karishma is eliminated, and that it was down to her and Noura at tribal council. When she entered tribal council and started to open up one could see how distraught she was. During the tribal council, Elaine shared that “other than getting on this, nothing good has ever really happened.”
She also spoke about how her mother had passed away just three months prior to her appearance on the show. Elaine also opened up about how grateful she is for her girlfriend. But sadly, that didn't help when it came to the votes. In the end, Elaine received four votes while Noura received only three and was eliminated.
Fans were disappointed that she was the one getting eliminated after everyone was rooting for her. A fan tweeted, "#Survivor Elaine you are such an inspiration! Keep your head up and your heart open. You deserve so much!"
"Super sad Elaine had to leave then this crap with Dan happened. He should of left long ago. #Survivor," a fan wrote. "Ohh my goodness!!! Pass the tissues please I (love) Elaine."
Some fans also claimed that they should have removed Dan ahead of tribal council so Elaine would not have been eliminated. "Survivor so according to @people
it happened after the immunity challenge on the way back to camp. They could have removed him before Elaine got voted out that is fucked up."
"Been a while since I cried at a #survivor vote-out, but God did I love Elaine #survivorislandoftheidols," wrote a fan. Adding to that another said, "Survivor Bring Elaine back!! @ElaineStott32."
