Jay Starrett has become the fifteenth castaway to be eliminated from Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X.
The the 27-year-old real estate agent from Fort Lauderdale, FL was eliminated in the first tribal council of the finale. After wasting his idol last week, Jay knew he was the biggest target left in the game so went searching for a new idol to protect himself, and he found one – except it wasn’t real. David, in an attempt to create chaos, created a fake idol and planted it in a coconut shell, which Jay later discovered.
After losing the immunity challenge, Jay decided to steal the reward portion (a steak dinner) from David, and picked David and Adam to join him. Jay tried to sway David and Adam to keep him as a shield and vote out Bret instead, but while David was on board, Adam was reluctant to keep Jay in the game.
At tribal council, Jay played his “idol,” thinking he was safe yet again, but Jeff revealed that it was not a real idol and swiftly threw it into the fire. Ken then played his legacy advantage which guaranteed him immunity. Jay was voted out 5-1.
Jay received five votes from Adam, Bret, David, Hannah, and Ken.
