Survivor: South Pacific S:23 | Survivalism E:5 | AfterBuzz TV AfterShow

AFTERBUZZ TV – Survivor: South Pacific edition, is a weekly “after show” for fans of CBS’s Survivor: South Pacific. In this episode, host Phil Svitek breaks down the fifth episode in which Jim was concerned that Ozzy and Elyse had a tighter bond than people realized and that he could not vote out Ozzy, so he confided with Cochran about a plan to vote out Elyse next. Cochran agreed as that would leave him in the game for at least another three days. At Upolu, Brandon was still feeling tormented by his actions and decided to be a better more honest player. He apologized to Mikayla for his recent outburst in front of the tribe. He then told Edna that she was not part of the core alliance of Albert, Brandon, Coach, Sophie, and Rick, but just a sixth subordinate member. Cochran, Jim, Brandon, and Edna went to observe the Redemption Island Duel. Before the duel started, Brandon apologized to Christine for how the Tribal Council went against her. Christine edged out Papa Bear to win her second duel in a row. Brandon’s revelation about her status made Edna more cautious and she decided that she had to emphasize the social aspect of her game by being cordial and polite since she was not a strong physical compettitor. However, her constant talking and laugh annoyed Mikayla and Stacey. At Savaii, Cochran approached Dawn about voting out Elyse next. At the combined Reward/Immunity Challenge, Savaii chose Dawn, Jim, and Keith to be the weight bearers while Upolu chose Albert, Brandon, and Stacey. Keith dropped out first after 26 minutes and 180 pounds (82 kg). Albert was out next at the same weight. Jim and Brandon surpassed the Survivor record of 220 pounds (100 kg) held by Rupert Boneham in Survivor: Pearl Islands and James “J.T.” Thomas, Jr. and Brendan Synnott in Survivor: Tocantins by going to 240 pounds (110 kg), but both dropped the pole shortly after the last 20 pounds (9.1 kg) were added. Just like Survivor: Tocantins, it came down to the two women: Dawn and Stacey. The weight was at 140 pounds (64 kg) when Stacey dropped her pole to give Savaii the win. Even though Stacey thought she had proved herself as a strong player by her performance in the challenge, she was still concerned that she would be voted out next. Stacey asked Coach where she stood in the tribe and Coach told her that it would be her or somebody else to be voted out next. Stacey tried to stir things up by telling Brandon that he needed to watch out for Albert, Mikayla, and Sophie. Brandon told Coach the news, but Coach cut him off and told him to not believe someone who was the next to be voted out and was not a member of their alliance. Sophie and Coach were concerned about Brandon’s actions and that, in order to protect the alliance, he might have to be kicked out some time in the future and that Mikayla would have to be brought in in his place. At Tribal Council, Brandon broke down emotionally for feeling that he had something to prove by being Russell Hantz’s relative and that he had to reclaim the family name in a positive manner. The tribe discussed trust and loyalty within the tribe. When the vote came, Stacey’s worries about being voted out came true and she was sent to Redemption Island by a vote of 7–1. As Stacey was leaving the Tribal Council area, Coach prompted the tribe to “give her a hug”, but Stacey rejected them as she felt that everything the tribe said about trust and loyalty was a lie. There to help Phil is co-host Michelle Macedo. It’s Survivor: South Pacific’s “Survivalism” podcast!
