Thursday night on CBS, Patrick Bolton was blindsided by his Hustlers tribe, causing him to be the third castaway eliminated on “Survivor” 35. (Read our recap of Episode 3, titled “My Kisses Are Very Private.”) Originally from Lanett, AL, this small business owner was voted out unanimously because of his poor showing at the sandbag-throwing immunity challenge.

Patrick’s troubles began when he admitted last week that he didn’t trust everyone on his Hustlers tribe. That understandably irked all of his tribe mates — Ali Elliott, Devon Pinto, Ryan Ulrich and Lauren Rimmer — the wrong way. Speaking of Lauren, there was a slight chance she could be voted out because of her age, but ultimately the Hustlers decided to get rid of the Alabama redhead and keep Lauren around for a few more days.
Earlier in the episode Ryan noticed that Patrick was shamelessly searching for the hidden immunity idol, which put an even bigger target on his sunburned back. And Patrick’s carefree and silly personality was beginning to wear on the nerves of his cast mates, which also didn’t help him when it came time to vote.
Unbeknownst to the remaining four tribe members, there will be a tribe switch-up next week. That means this strong foursome of Ali, Devon, Ryan and Lauren will likely be split up and intermixed with the Heroes and Healers. This could potentially be a good news/bad news situation for the Hustlers, particularly Devon and Ryan who are currently in control of their red team.
