In the end, Tampa resident and lingerie football player Mikayla Wingle made two big mistakes that got her voted off her tribe on Survivor: South Pacific in an episode shown Wednesday on CBS.
She made key mistakes to lose a competition for immunity, and she got on the wrong side of her tribe's power broker, Benjamin "Coach" Wade.
When the show's two tribes competed in a challenge where they had to assemble a makeshift slingshot and knock down targets with coconuts, Wingle kept missing the targets, pulling the sling with one hand. She refused to obey Wade's instructions during the challenge, so he targeted Wingle.
Next week, Wingle will be shown heading to Redemption Island, where she competed with someone previously voted off a tribe in a challenge. The winner stays on Redemption Island, the loser is ejected from the game for good; eventually, whoever is left on Redemption Island has a chance to rejoin the game.
Wingle played for Tampa's lingerie football team, the Tampa Breeze (until Survivor required her to travel to Samoa this summer), and appeared on the cover of Playboy in January.
