But on Survivor, JFP got his friend to deliver the "bad news" and he just played along. Staying in the mindset that this is supposed to be a real show, Ingrid could have cooked up a similar plot before she left home, and had one of her relatives phone the bad news in to the show. Then a producer, or the host, could "break" it to her, and she could play along, and hopefully elicit sympathy. Then Austin, quite innocently, could have made a well-meaning phone call to her house and accidentally found out the "truth".
Yeah, that makes sense. But only a person like Ingrid wud actually go through the thought-process to come up with that! I don't think Tim and Amanda will suspect anything.
Here's another reason as to why I think Ingrid's back, anyway. When Austin delivered the news to the group (about Ingrid "lying"), Amanda replied with, "Her FATHER'S grandfather had died, I'm not sure if that means anything." The flabbergasted expression on Austin's face left him speechless as he looked in the direction of not Amanda, but Eleanor! As if ELEANOR was supposed to say that to set up Ingrid's return due to a misunderstanding.
Besides, why would Ingrid go through the detail of saying that her FATHER'S grandfather had died? It seems an unimportant detail which grandfather of hers died if she were actually "lying".
BTW does any of you know whats the purpose of this smiley--->
