Survivor SA: Philippines | Can Anyone Stop The Blue Bloc Blitz

The power constantly shifts within Survivor South Africa: Philippines – and the emergence of a specific blue-tinted bloc at Araw during last week’s Tribal Council saw Chané voted off in a tie-breaker vote with Tom.

Chané joins Vusi on the Jury at Ponderosa – and they’ll be keeping a keen eye on proceedings at Tribal Council as the remaining 8 Castaways bid to Outwit, Outplay and Outlast each other on the road to the R1 Million prize and the title of ‘Sole Survivor’.

With Tom having been taken in by the Mindanao bloc, the writing could be on the wall for Palesa – the only other original Luzon member – especially since she was forced to play her Immunity Idol to protect herself last week. She’s shown in the past that she’s a wily operator though, and won’t be shy of pulling out all the stops if she sniffs blood in the water.

There’s dissention in the blue ranks, too, as PK’s seemingly-unquenchable thirst for a ‘big move’ and Toni’s unhappiness about the level of support she received from her former Mindanao tribemates in ousting the ‘reds’ is threatening to unsettle things. But they need to be wary of rocking the boat too much – or face the kind of ‘Operation: Discipline’ that Tevin & PK used to take Marthunis to task.

This week, the Castaways are playing for an epic, luxurious reward if they can outlast in a physical challenge which will have them testing their dexterity and negotiating a precipitous slope while keeping their wits about them. To lay claim to the Immunity Necklace, they’ll need to match mind power with a gentle touch, for a Tribal Council lifeline.

Tune in to Survivor SA: Philippines this Thursday at 19:00 on M-Net 101 to see the Castaways balance risk, reward and stamina in their bid for glory.

Also make a note to catch the fun-filled YouTube episode of Live After: Survivor South Africa on the DStv Online YouTube page, where the voted-off castaway will be in conversation with host Phil Mphela at 20:05 each week, directly after Survivor SA airs on M-Net 101. Want to ask a castaway a burning question? Tweet using #LiveAfter and @survivorsa and Phil could get it answered in the ‘Ask Me Anything’ segment of the show.

While fans of the show enjoy all the action in the episode, there are also some magnificent prizes up for grabs on the Survivor SA: Philippines website:
