Australian Survivor: Phoebe Goes Home And The Tribes Becomes One

In reality TV land, playing hard sometimes bites you in the butt.

Loyalty in Survivor? No way, Jose.

She was willing to do preeeeeetty much anything to win, but it wasn't enough for Sydneysider Phoebe Timmins who was voted off the reality show on Tuesday night after 31 days on the Samoan island.

Things started to fall apart for Timmins on Monday night, when her plan to send Kristie home (who was meant TO BE HER BESTEST BUD) completely backfired after Brooke, a Saanapu member crashed Vavau's tribal council.

Instead of voting someone off, Brooke got to take a Vavau tribe member of her choosing. Who did she choose? Sue of course. The retired customs officer from Western Australia. This meant that there was no need for an elimination and everyone was safe... for now.

But it wouldn't matter anyway, because the two tribes merged on Tuesday night making the game an individual one. But before that all went down there was another tribal council -- which sealed Timmins' fate.

Despite gaining respect from Survivor fans around the world for her strategy (OR LIES) in the end Timmins was outplayed by the her fellow tribe and ally, Kristie.

"I said from the beginning that I wanted to play a big game," Timmins said.

"I have watched Survivor for so long and I've loved the game. I always was going to play hard."

"It's outwit, outplay and outlast, and she outplayed me on that vote, so I really take my hat off to her."
