This is the end of the hard core of the old yellows.
The story of an ultimately very predictable elimination.
And which should cause new electric reunions.
Because the ex-Toa have never been so much in conflict as since reunification.
Last week, after a huge twist during which Lucie was able to steal Laëtitia's immunity collar to give it to Maxine, it was this same Laëtitia who was eliminated, accompanied by Vincent, darling of viewers, in because of the linked destinies. Two arrivals expected by the other members of the final jury, believing that the two newcomers stuck a knife in their backs. “I don't say hello to traitors,” Matthew was even annoyed.
On the island, the last eight candidates have all drawn on their last resources.
But two outsiders showed incredible strength on the comfort test, "the star", during which they had to balance with the strength of hands and feet, installed on cleats of seven millimeters.
Exhausted, Thomas and Maxine only held out for a few moments.
But Magali and especially Jonathan amazed their comrades.
If the dean failed, the Breton won a message from his relatives and offered Lucie and Maxine a hearty meal.
He borders on discomfort just before the council
Enough to fuel some tensions since Lucie, in charge of the rice, has apparently mismanaged the proportions. "We will have to eat three grains of rice every two days", plague Magali. Especially when some people face real shortcomings, like Thomas. Former strongman of the yellow, the delivery driver sees his cheeks widen every day a little more. What does not help him for the immunity test, an obstacle course, on which he fails on the first pass. Unlike Maxine, absolutely stunning and handily picking up the totem pole.
For the elimination, three tracks are privileged.
First there is Flavio.
Jonathan doubts his sincerity and "knows he cannot trust him".
But also Magali, believing to be apart and "speaking badly" in the opinion of Laure and Maxine.
And finally Thomas, the last member of the hard core of the yellows, who borders on discomfort just before the council.
It is ultimately this weakness which costs its place to the tough head of the adventure.
All have decided that his time has come.
But for the last seven, a small gift from Denis Brogniart: an additional kilo of rice, considering that Lucie's management was good.
What enchanted the latter: "It's Santa Claus, Denis!"
