RECAP: Oceanside Allie Eliminated on Second Episode of 'Survivor'

Alliance dooms Pohevitz after less than one week on island.

Oceanside resident Allie Pohevitz's time on the new season of CBS' hit show "Survivor" may have been sweet, but it was short-lived.

The 25-year-old was eliminated on the second episode of "Survivor: Caramoan" Wednesday night in a somewhat surprising move by her tribe.

Pohevitz's tribe of "fans" lost the second immunity challenge to the tribe of "favorites" Wednesday, forcing them to send their first member home.

After forming an alliance in last week's season premiere with three other members of the "fans" tribe, the move eventually came back to haunt Pohevitz.

The alliance of four, led by Reynold Toepfer, made it clear that they were going to vote for tribe mate Shamar Thomas for his "unacceptable behavior." The move quickly divided the group and left the other six members in the position of voting out one of the four in Pohevitz's alliance.

When asked who she would vote out in a small meeting of the remaining six, tribe mate Laura Alexander said "Allie."

"Personally, I think Allie is a strategic threat," Alexander said. "I think she's the only one out of the four 'pretty people' that's really thinking."

When it seemed like Pohevitz was doomed, Toepfer was shown finding a hidden immunity idol on the island. The idol can be used to save himself or any of his tribe mates during elimination voting.

Toepfer and Pohevitz were already members of an alliance and the two had been seen cuddling in the season's first episode. However, prior to the announcement of the voting results, Toepfer decided to hold onto the idol.

The first four votes shown were for Thomas. Unfortunately for Pohevitz, the remaining six vote went against her and she was sent home.

"I had a lot more game to play," Pohevitz said. "It's just so frustrating because this is what I wanted."

"I wanted to play this game for half my life," she added. "I wanted this since I was 11 years old. I'm mortified beyond words that I'm leaving second."

I'd love to say this is riveting news, but I'm much more inclined to say.... who cares?

It is a shame that she went out so fast, but I have to say that it was really dumb to form an alliance out in the open when you don’t have the numbers to control the vote at Tribal Council. If Rynold had given his immunity idol the foursome would have been in a great position, but it seems that their alliance wasn’t worth much. I am out of town because of my job at DISH, but fortunately I was able to watch this episode on my iPad. I love how I can stream live and recorded TV to my tablet with DISH Anywhere because I never have to worry about missing Survivor even when I am traveling.
