Survivor 2020 premiered last week and we already lost two of the Winners at War players. Of course not all is lost for those players as they headed off to the Edge of Extinction to wait out the chance to return to the game.
Let’s take a look at who remains in the Survivor 40 game.
DAKAL (Red tribe)
Tyson Apostol. Tyson found himself in a bad situation last week because of an expected alliance, but he was able to turn it around and survive.
Sophie Clarke. Sophie found herself in a pretty good spot because she had no obvious outside relationships.
Sandra Diaz-Twine. Two-time winner Sandra ended up in a much better spot than anyone should have allowed. She helped control the vote and now has a hidden immunity idol in her possession.
Wendell Holland. Wendell was definitely working the relationship angles and was able to stay pretty neutral last week.
Yul Kwon. Yul showed that his previous win was definitely not a fluke. He took control of the game right away and was just so entertaining to watch.
Sarah Lacina. Sarah was a lot like Wendell. She was just kind of there last week, which isn’t to say she didn’t play a part in the week. She just wasn’t at the center of everything.
Kim Spradlin-Wolfe. Kim found herself in a new position on the bottom. She was never not in control on her season, so this could be a totally different game for her.
Tony Vlachos. Tony was much more low-key this time around. He didn’t even idol hunt! Will his new strategy work for him?
Nick Wilson. Nick ended up with some of the old-school players because none of them had pre-exising relationships. Will that pay off for him?
SELE (Blue tribe)
Danni Boatwright. Danni had an impressive showing. I didn’t expect her to be so much at the center of everything.
Jeremy Collins. Sadly, Jeremy’s relationship with Natalie was almost the end of him. I’m hoping now that she’s gone, he won’t have that shadow looming over him.
Ben Driebergen. Ben proved he is definitely a bottom tier winner. The way he just spilled his guts to Boston Rob was embarrassing.
Michele Fitzgerald. Michele does what Michele does and that is lay low. Will she be able to sneak by all the way like she did last time?
Adam Klein. Adam found himself in danger for “getting lost” with Denise. Was he able to shake that after voting with the majority?
Rob Mariano. Rob, along with Parvati, really played circles around the others and it was only the first week.
Parvati Shallow. Parvati let us know she can’t play the flirt card now that she’s married and a mother, so she showed us that flirting was only one aspect of her Survivor gameplay. She didn’t need that at all as we saw with her and Rob last week.
Denise Stapley. Denise and Adam were definitely in trouble, but they managed to survive. Will Denise have to shake off the thought that she has found her new Malcolm?
Ethan Zohn. Ethan was so impressive. Not only was he all about Team Old School, he also knows that some of the old school people are threats. He will be so fun to watch play again.
