While I believe they mostly went with votes, Savage was IMO 100%
rigged on. There is no way he got the votes to compete. They wanted
him for some reason. Shane was probably last of the entries who made
it in votes so was unceremoniously dumped. They probably looked at it
that Mike probably easily made it, so they just pretended Savage was
Mike and the 11th person still doesnt make it so they feel they arent
even really cheating. Easy.
