Here’s what you can expect on Survivor South Africa: Champions this week:
Cricket legend Jonty Rhodes brings one tribe a special gift. It’s day ten for the two tribes that are playing the game of Survivor in the South China sea . Never in their lives have they been this hungry. To top it off the members of Mark Fish’s Utara lost Zan, their biggest provider at the previous tribal council. The tribes’ only hope to momentarily still the hunger pangs is a food reward from host Nico Panagio – and luckily that’s exactly what is up for grabs at the Reward Challenge. Unfortunately, only the winners will be able to enjoy the delicious hamburgers and chips at the end of the game. Then, instead of getting a clue about the Immunity Challenge, which will determine which tribe goes to tribal council, there’s a surprise treemail for the captains requiring a difficult decision. In the meantime, Selatan’s captain, Corne Krige, feels the pressure of the Hidden Immunity Idol that was given to him for safe-keeping by Shona last week. Corne can only use the idol in the interest of the whole tribe.
Inbetween all the action, cricket star Jonty Rhodes arrive on the island with a box of goodies and good vibes. What’s in the box and how will one of the tribes benefit from that?
“The season is just getting better and better, ” says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard. “And once again, the social dynamics at camp will also get viewers talking this week. The Survivors are hungry, exhausted and desparate and we all know how emotions can see-saw under such circumstances.”
