They say that records are made to be broken, and one certainly was with yesterday's matchups! We went from one day where we saw an insanely close battle to a day where the margins were blown wide open. In fact, the both matchups proved to be momentous. In what some consider an embarrassment and others consider a triumph, Paulo's loss to Vincent marks the first elimination of a main character in the tournament thus far. Then, of course, there was Rousseau's record-setting margin of victory against Susan Lloyd.
The final tally was 98% to 2%, with Susan acquiring only 58 votes out of 2994 total. This surpasses Hurley's 97-3 victory of Naomi at the beginning of Round 1. Can Rousseau's new record be beat? We've got a lot more voting to do before all is said and done, but I think we'll be hard pressed to break the new record.
Tonight we see four good-guys duke it out. The most recently departed Lostie is matched up against a woman from Locke's past, while our second matchup pits two Tailies against each other. Who's is going to win today, and who deserves to? You tell us!
