Youth Rules: Linda Sent Packing

Survivor: The Team In Africa -- Linda Spencer CBS

At another intense Tribal Council, the younger members of Samburu displayed their unity as Linda Spencer, the 44-year-old mother of two from Cambridge, Mass., was voted out of the tribe in a 4-3 vote, becoming the 4th person to leave Survivor: Africa..

Linda sealed her fate earlier by sparring with Lindsey Richter, the temperamental 27-year-old from Portland, Ore., as the two could not overcome their differences.

Chat with Linda Spencer Friday at 2:30 p.m. ET.
After exiting, Linda looked back on her time spent in Africa, stating, "Integrity is very important to me. It's not if you win or lose, it's how you play the game."

Linda's Final Words:

It's been an amazing 12 days, and all along there were two things that I wanted to go away with. One was to have fun to the end, and I have fun each and every day. The other thing was to walk away with my head held high, and with honor. I think our vote tonight, the older people's alliance, is very significant. Honor is very important to us; integrity is very important to us. To me, it's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game. We tried, and we came up on the shorter end of the stick.

It'll be interesting to see what happens later on, after the merge. I would love to be there, but it wasn't meant to be. I'm a very spiritual person, I trust the process, accept what is. It was an amazing adventure; I had a hell of a time. Mother Africa is just this wonderful, wonderful place. I've grown, I've learned, it's just been great. Namaste."

The Final Vote:

Linda Spencer - 4
Silas Gaither - 3
