The division of so-called Fans and Favorites will soon be no more because the game is going in a new direction for next week’s episode of Survivor: Caramoan — Fans Vs. Favorites. As many viewers have predicted since the next episode’s teaser after Brandon Hantz’s meltdown and elimination, a tribal swap is coming.
The 14 remaining castaways will be impacted by the twist that first stunned viewers when members of Boran and Samburu were swapped up unexpectedly on Survivor: Africa (way back in season three). It all goes down in the next episode, which has been titled “Operation Thunder Dome.” Here’s how CBS is teasing it up in a press release: “A shake-up with the tribes creates chaos and new alliances. Meanwhile, the game is thrown off-balance when on tribe’s change results in a strength disparity between Gota and Bikal.” Hmmm… Any predictions on what that’s hinting at?
I think this tribal swap comes at the perfect time because this season really needs some sprucing up. It has not been a fun season to watch because the personalities just don’t seem very fun as they have been divided since the beginning of the game. I’m hopeful this really does shake things up in more ways than one.
What do you think of the upcoming tribal swap? Are you a fan of this twist or do you wish they would have stayed divided along the Fans vs. Favorites concept until the merge? Who is your favorite player at this point in the game? Sound off and leave a comment below!
