Survivor South Pacific returns with episode 4 this week when Papa Bear heads to Redemption Island and the two tribes face off again for another chance at immunity. CBS’ preview clip is down below to get you ready.
Once Bear reaches the Redemption arena he’ll be dueling Christine who won last week’s battle with Semhar and stayed alive. I’m expecting him to be a bigger challenge than Semhar presented, so Christine’s chances aren’t as good this time.
Back at the camps, it looks like Cochran might be teaming up with Jim to send Ozzy in to the danger zone, but don’t forget that he has the immunity idol so if he develops a sense of danger I’d expect him to lock in his safety. Of course we’ll also have Baby Hantz doing his usual thing and freaking out over anything that moves. How much longer can this guy hold out before fully cracking? I don’t think I’ll miss him a bit.
Which tribe do you want to see at council this week on Survivor South Pacific?
This 10-second clip may have been my favorite moment from last week’s episode of Survivor South Pacific. Papa Bear knew he was in danger so he did what every NYPD detective is taught as the best way to keep your intentions secret: run!
I’m really hoping he beats out Christine this week at Redemption Island so we can get more out of him.
Survivor was back in full force this week with its best ratings of the season. Sure, we’re only on the third episode and it was a small climb, but that’s great news for the series and its chances at continued seasons.
After last week’s dip to 10.5 million from the Survivor South Pacific‘s 10.6 million premiere we saw a jump to 10.7 million viewers this week.
Maybe viewers were anxious to see the first Redemption Island duel or could the inevitable Hantz implosion be driving interest in the South Pacific? I’m just glad we’re not yet hitting a Boston Robbery of the season just yet with one former castaway walking all over the rest of the tribes.
What’s making this season exciting for you and who are you hoping goes next?

Papa Bear puts it well when he says “no votes, when they’re against you, are fair.” In that case, things were really unfair for him as he took the bulks of the votes last night when Savaii returned to the tribal council. Watch the voting play out below.
Savaii Tribe voting – Week 3:
- John Cochran – Papa Bear
- Jim Rice – Cochran
- Mark “Papa Bear” Caruso – Jim
- Elyse Umemoto – Papa Bear
- Ozzy Lusth – Papa Bear
- Dawn Meehan – Papa Bear
- Keith Tollefson – Papa Bear
- Whitney Duncan – Papa Bear
With six of the eight votes cast, Papa Bear was sent to Redemption Island. There he’ll face off against Christine after she beat Semhar. Hopefully Semhar can come back and do a little bizarro “spoken word” action for us before the next duel.
Did Savaii make the right choice this week on Survivor South Pacific?
Last night on Survivor South Pacific we get more of rantings and craziness from Brandon Hantz, our first Redemption Island dual and a pretty awesome Immunity Challenge. Christine wakes up Semhar and doesn’t seem to understand why Coach wanted her gone so badly. (Maybe because you couldn’t keep your thoughts to yourself and had to run that trap on more than one occassion.) Coach and Stacy from Upolu with Ozzy and Elise from Savaii head to RI to watch their former tribe members battle it out for a chance to stay in the game. Semhar in her odd fashion has to quote some spoken word in order to prepare for the competition against Christine. In the challenge straight from Russell Hantz’s play book the two ladies put a totem on top of a pole and must balance it as they add sections to the pole to make it longer. To no ones surprise and Coach’s disgusted look, Christine easily beats Semhar and is returned to RI to await the next evicted player.
Back at Upolu Brandon is once again wrestling with demons and says God is chastising him for lying. He decides to come clean with his tribe and let them all know he is actually Russell’s nephew, a decision that leaves Coach shaking his head in bewildered wonder. Brandon says he had a relapse of what his Uncle used to do. IMO, Brandon needs to quit running from who he is and accept that he’s a Hantz and learn to live with it.
