The Survivor numbers game gets real

2014-03-30 14:04
Johannesburg - The former Utara and Selatan tribe members wasted no time in scrambling to cement alliances after last week’s merge into the Juara tribe – and in this week’s show, the explosive results will be revealed.

Just about every contestant has said “Survivor is a numbers game” and on Sunday, one contestant will make a crucial miscalculation which will result in the most dramatic Tribal Council of the season so far.

Captains Corne Krige and Mark Fish are not part of Juara  – but still have a massive say in the result of the game, thanks to the introduction of the Salvation Cup. Each week, they’ll battle for ownership of the Cup in a head-to-head duel, with the winner able to change the course of the Tribal Council vote.

The Captains are also playing a game for the public vote, with R500 000 at stake. By voting, viewers stand the chance to win weekly prizes of R10 000 and go into the draw for the grand prize – a family vacation in Zanzibar valued at R90 000. Voting information, as well as terms & conditions, is available at

M-Net's Head of Publicity and Special Projects, Lani Lombard, says that the Juara tribe members will need to stay on their toes if they want to be named the show's Ultimate Survivor. "The castaways have proved that they can pull off epic blindsides, but whoever gets voted off after the merge will become part of the jury – a scary thought indeed. It's going to be fascinating to see how the movers and shakers deal with this new phase of the competition."

Survivor South Africa: Champions is broadcast on M-Net on Sundays at 17:30. For DStv Compact viewers, there's a repeat on Saturdays on M-Net Series Zone at 13:00.
