This week the Survivor 2019 castaways will become one tribe as the merge is upon us. Also, one of the Edge of Extinction players will rejoin the fold. Who will that be? Read on for a possible spoiler on that.
Below we have some photos from the upcoming challenges and some camp photos following the merge. We don’t have an actual photo of who wins the Edge of Extinction competition, but we do see the new tribe buff is red. And that aligns with an accidental spoiler posted by one of the castaways on Instagram a while back.
Chris Underwood posted a photo of himself wearing a red buff, which had fans reeling over the possibility that he is the one who returns to the game. And now that we know the new buffs are indeed red, it looks like the Chris might just be the one to return. Of course there’s a possibility that all the Edge of Extinction players were given a merge buff and Chris just happened to be wearing it in his Instagram photo. So we can’t be fore sure that he is the returning player, but if you look at who he is up against, it’s very well possible.
Some other things to keep in mind as we head into merge week:
- Lauren still has her hidden immunity idol.
- Kelley Wentworth also has a hidden immunity idol up her sleeve.
- If Aubry were the one to return from the Edge of Extinction, her idol doesn’t come with her. She lost it when she was voted out.
- There will be a new idol planted after the merge.
Be sure to check out the photo below to see the challenges this week and see some photos of the camp following the merge.
