Most likely she's the producers' favorite, not the audience's. A sacrificial lamb, someone tossed in to give Phillip a chance to show his true colors. I don't much cotton to this fans vs. favorites competition; I'd rather see all new players. One exception, I'm glad to see Cochran again. He's not only amiable, he's the most intelligent one on the show, and that includes Jeff Probst. But intelligence isn't highly valued in this game; Andrea was almost voted off "because she's smart."
