Michaela Bradshaw, clearly one of host Jeff Probst‘s favorite castaways based on the way he communicated with her at the challenges, was shockingly ousted by her tribe after Jay Starrett decided that she was too much of a threat heading into a potential merge. Michaela seemed absolutely gutted at tribal council when the votes of Jay, Will Wahl, Sunday Burquest and Bret LaBelle were read aloud. In fact, the only person not to vote for Michaela was Hannah Shapiro, who was left with her jaw open in shock.

Just how startling was Michaela’s elimination? Out of 14 castaways, Michaela was dead last on our predictions chart for who’d be out next with 100/1 odds (just above the “No One” option). See more “Survivor 33” odds and rankings. Next week brings about the long-awaited merge, with the former Millennials tribe entering the next stage of the game with a 7-6 lead over the former Gen X tribe. Will the young crew get together and pick off the Gen X-ers one by one, or are we in for more jaw-droppers?
