    Because the last time it was a rock tie-breaker, everyone who didn't have immunity drew a rock, and it was someone (Roger, I think) who was eliminated, even though there were no votes for him. It wasn't only the people voted for who were drawing, which I thought was pretty stupid.

    Yes.. But they have all played the game before and have all seen people getting stabbed in the back. It is part of the game. To be that angry... Come On that is more than just the "I was stabbed in the back Angry". That was the "You will rot in hell" angry.

    Well I can understand Tom being upset, but Tom did it to himself. He was in the power position and 5 and instead he used the "I am the pawn" line. WOW... As soon as I heard that I thought... Goodbye!!!

    I understand why they would be upset, but they were well beyond what I would consider a reasonable level of anger. If i was in a court and they were on the jury, I would be afraid very afraid...

    I think if these guys were just meeting each other for the first time, it wouldn't have been so strong. Although reality show contestants always seem to talk about friends they made while on the show, there's nothing invested in that friendship beyond the 39 (usually less) days they've had together. With Rob and Lex, there was a friendship that's gone on for years. I read somewhere that Rob used to call Lex and Lex's wife and discuss, at a serious level, things like Rob's girlfriends. That's a pretty powerful bond, and so Lex had more invested in his friendship than he would've if he'd just met Rob.

    Still doesn't fully explain his treatment of Ethan, though.

    Richardson,...
    Since it's been several survivors since a tie vote occurred, here's what happens:

    There is discussion that occurs after the first tie vote. The, a revote occurrs for only the two people, with those two people not voting (since their votes would cancel each other out).

    Here's what has happened if it was still a tiebreaker. First, it was the person who received the most votes in previous tribal councils. Then, for one tiebreaker, since neither person had any previous votes, they had to answer a trivia question from a survival manual. Finally, they used the rock tiebreaker. There hasn't been a tied vote since.
