This week on Survivor 2019 the remaining 13 castaways will come together as one. That’s right, it’s time to drop their buffs and merge.
The players will of course be treated to a merge feast, come up with a name for their new tribe and paint their tribe flag. Oh, and they’ll also go to an immunity challenge and vote someone out. And this week, we will see that happen twice as it’s a double episode.
We have your first look at the new tribe below. The buffs are blue and the new tribe name is “Lumuwaku.” We have photos of all of that below, along with a look at the immunity challenge from the first episode we will see tonight. Like a typical first post-merge competition, this one will be endurance. The players have to balance three balls on a platform. We aren’t sure what other elements there are to it, but it seems that’s about all they have to do. The last person standing will be the first to win the individual immunity necklace (which we also have a photo of below).
Check out the photo gallery below for a first look at this week’s episode, including the new tribe look and the first of two immunity challenges.
Be sure to head back here on Wednesday night for our latest live recap of Survivor Island of the Idols. And remember, it’s a two-hour episode, so we will be here from 8-9 PM EST updating you after each challenge and tribal council. Another player will also be meeting heading off to meet Boston Rob and Sandra on the Island of the Idols. We should expect some more idols to show up since there aren’t any more currently in the game.
