As a result, the folks stuck on Hunahpu will have to strike some sort of bargain with Jeff Probst next week to replenish their practically non-existent food supply. What will it cost them? We'll find out next Wednesday. But whose fault is it? Who kept insisting on cooking all of that rice? We asked the latest person voted out (and a former Hunahpuian), Kelley Wentworth, »
