Next Time On Survivor 2017: Drop Your Buffs – Tribe Shuffle

Jeff Probst hands out new Buffs on Survivor 2017

Next time on Survivor 2017 the big storyline to kick off the night will be the demise of the Heroes, Healers, and Hustlers tribes. Drop your Buffs, pick a new one, and meet your new tribes in Week 4 of Season 35.

We just saw the Hustlers lose another tribemate in back to back weeks with Patrick out the door over his own target Lauren. Now the Hustlers, with the fewest original members, could end up scattered depending on how this draw goes.

We’ve got a few pairings in the three tribes at risk here. Healers have Jessica and Cole. Heroes with Ben and Chrissy. Then Hustlers kind of have Ryan and Devon. From the “next time on” preview clip we saw plenty of smiles from Jessica when discussing the draw, so I’d guess she got to stay with her showmance.

There will still be three tribes after the Tribe Shuffle, so no downshift to fewer teams. But while we won’t be losing any tribes we will be losing time back at the camps. That’s right, it’s the return of the reward comp this week.

After enjoying three weeks of focusing on the camp life instead of cramming two comps in to the episode we’re about to lose that perk of the season. Reward and Immunity will be handed out in two separate competitions for at least this next week.

Check out these highlight moments from the next Survivor 2017 episode as the tribes are about to say goodbye to their original tribemates and shuffle to a new order.
