<p><span></span>Sarita White was eliminated on last night's <em>Survivor: Redemption Island</em>. But she tells <em>Life & Style</em> that even more shocking than her own exit was Matt Elrod's blatant disregard for her warning to stick with her tribe, Zapatera, instead of the tribe led by reigning villain Rob "Boston Rob" Mariano. "Matt served himself up on a platter to Boston Rob," she says.<br />
After beating Sarita in his final duel to get back in the competition, wide-eyed Matt, 22, became the latest victim of Boston Rob when he trusted the veteran villain against Sarita's advice. "I'd already given him the 4-1-1," Sarita, 36, tells Life & Style. "I said to stick with Mike. He should have gone with Zapatera."
Matt didn't listen and was voted out by Boston Rob and his alliance during tribal council, sending him right back to exile on Redemption Island. Even more disturbing to Sarita is that the tribe members didn't immediately turn on Rob at the merge. "I thought they would unload Rob the first chance they got, and they didn't," says the Santa Monica-based visual effects producer. "This latest thing has really turned the game -- Rob could actually make final two."
Still, Sarita thinks Matt could be a contender against Rob if he survives Redemption Island -- for the second time. "He's tough, and he's got a couple of things on his side: youth and blind optimism," she says. But her final vote is for either 44-year-old farmer Ralph Kiser or firefighter Julie Wolfe, 50. "I know a bit about each of their backgrounds, and I think they would do the best with the winnings."
