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.
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
