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?
Survivor South Pacific is giving us an early look at this week’s challenge, “Family Ties.” The tribes will face off in blindfolds and navigate the course by using a series of ropes. Looks like plenty of opportunities for bumped heads and scraped knees.
Have I mentioned how much fun it’d be to join the challenge testing team that goes out there for this? What Survivor brave guinea pigs they are!

Survivor South Pacific is back tonight with its seventh episode of the season and according to the teaser video it could be a crazy night for the remaining castaways.
We’re still awaiting one tribe to win two challenges in a row this season and after Upolu’s loss last week with Mikayla’s elimination this will be Savaii’s chance to make that streak come alive.
Since Mikayla was voted out she’ll be the next potential victim for Christine, the winning machine, at Redemption Island. Speaking of Redemption Island, I can’t wait to see if this week’s Survivor spoilers are accurate and we get a crazy finish to the night. This could be the worst move of the season.
Survivor South Pacific episode 7 is on its way to our TVs tomorrow night, but before we get to that there’s lots to discuss. CBS released a new promo for the episode and it looks like things could be crazy. Of course, if you read those alleged spoilers yesterday then you already know what is probably about to happen.
Now if you didn’t read those spoilers, then the video below teases that one player will volunteer to be sent to Redemption Island in hopes of returning from the arena with the power to control which team gets a player back. Some may call this the “Lawon Method” while I prefer the simpler “Idiot Approach” to Survivor. Needless to say, I can’t endorse this particular idea.
Do you think it makes sense to ever volunteer to be sent out of the game on the chance you get to come back?
