Survivor 2011 South Pacific is back with its eighth episode of the season on Wednesday night and this looks like it should be a good one. Last week we were left with a cliffhanger after Ozzy asked to be sent to Redemption Island with the hope of eliminating Christine and returning to his tribe. Of course that was all dependent on a tribal merge. Well guess what, we’ve got that merge after all.
There’s a lot more we know ahead of this week’s show thanks to the Survivor spoilers floating around out there. So go ahead and check those out only if you want to know what’s allegedly going to happen. If you want to keep it a surprise then check out the teaser video below for a preview of Wednesday’s Survivor.
Do you think Cochran is making the right choice by playing the “double agent” role or will his move destroy his chances at the million dollar prize?
It’s time for more Survivor spoilers for this week’s episode 8 of Survivor South Pacific. Stop reading right now if you want the events to remain a surprise for you. Last week the spoilers were very accurate so I’m guessing these are going to be pretty spot on this time around as well. Read on for the spoilers.
Survivor South Pacific continued to run strong this week in the ratings after pulling in roughly 11.8 million viewers and tieing its season premiere level. Could CBS’ teasing of Ozzy’s wild gamble have been the key to the episode’s slight jump? If that’s the case then next week’s should do even better.
So far we don’t know much about what will happen next as CBS was expectantly tight lipped in their preview of episode 8 for just what would happen with the potential tribe merge. When Entertainment Weekly spoke with Survivor host Jeff Probst he hinted that we’d see another big event:
EW: Tease us up for next week’s episode, Jeff.
Probst: If you thought Ozzy’s move was good, just wait till next week. Game Changer.
Game changer? Could Ozzy come back and Cochran decline to return the immunity idol? I know I’d have a hard time letting that one go!
What do you think will happen next week on South Pacific?
Two tribes will come together soon for the merge in Survivor South Pacific but will it be sooner rather than later? That is the big question on all Survivor fans minds today after watching Ozzy make what could be the worst move in Survivor history or the boldest. Let’s break this down.
Let’s assume the merge will come next like Savaii is hoping, what is to guarantee Ozzy will beat Christine in the upcoming dual? Nothing. She rocks at these challenges. She was the first one voted off and is still hanging in there and she beat Mikayla, let’s not forget that.
Another thing, Christine hates her tribe, so why not send Cochran over to fight it out, Christine beats him and joins the others at the merge where she is welcomed with open arms into the Savaii circle. She is most definitely a force and could be used on the weakened tribe.
This strategy doesn’t enter the mind of the great Ozzy however. It seems to me that he is looking for some kind of heroic welcome for choosing to get sent to Redemption Island. Not only does he hand Cochran a life line but he also gives him the idol. What if the merge isn’t next and Savaii loses another Immunity Challenge? The team will want Cochran out and he would be crazy not to use the idol on himself and send one of the stronger players to face Ozzy or Christine in yet another dual. So that would put the team down by two. I hate to say it but I am hoping Christine will pull off the win here and send Ozzy home.
I just don’t like this strategy and with a million dollars at stake you NEVER ask to get voted out. NEVER!!! I am frustrated with this whole line of thinking.
Sure enough, the spoilers were right. Mikayla was defeated by Christine at Redemption Island and Savaii fell at the immunity challenge. Even crazier was Ozzy’s decision to send himself to Redemption Island in hopes of ending Christine’s streak and deceiving Upolu ahead of a possible merge.
Savaii Tribe voting – Week 7:
- Jim Rice – Ozzy
- Ozzy Lusth – Cochran
- Dawn Meehan – Ozzy
- John Cochran – Ozzy
- Whitney Duncan – Ozzy
- Keith Tollefson – Ozzy
This was a huge gamble. Did Savaii make the right choice?
