"Coach" Wade Voted Off "Survivor Tocantins"
On yesterday's penultimate installment of "Survivor: Tocantins" Benjamin "Coach" Wade became the twelfth castaway voted out of the game. The episode began with Coach asking JT and Stephen to please not send him to Exile, a request that fell on deaf ears. Later, the final five met Jeff for the Reward Challenge, which had the castaways navigating a maze, building a pole and using a sandbag to knock down three targets. JT crushed the competition and easily won the challenge, earning him an overnight trip to a private retreat. He chose Stephen to go with him and decided to send Coach to Exile. After telling the others he didn't plan on eating while at Exile, Erinn called Coach a martyr causing Coach to shoot back "Hit me with your best shot, Pat Benatar". The next day the tribe reconvened for the Immunity Challenge which consisted of balancing between two walls using only your hands and your feet. Erinn was the first to fall followed by Stephen and then Taj. JT and Coach battled it out until finally Coach dropped giving JT the win. At tribal council only JT stayed true to Coach, while the other three voted him out, making him the fifth member of the jury. Now only four remain, who will outwit, outplay and outlast the others and take home the $1 million? Tune in to Sunday's three hour season finale to find out!
