Dean Kowalski from Survivor: Island of the Idols survived to fight another day. That is the takeaway from the latest episode of the show on CBS.

When the Lairo Tribe lost the Team Immunity Challenge on Wednesday night, it meant they would be taking an odd-number of castaways to Tribal Council. Seven of them walked in, but only six would survive the vote.

Earlier in the episode, it had seemed like Dean was on the outside of the primary alliances left in the Lairo Tribe. When host Jeff Probst mixed up the tribes, Dean was put in an unenviable position.

Luckily for Dean, he has a very important ally left in the game. That person is Kellee Kim. She had met with the idols (Boston Rob and Sandra) during a previous episode, earning an Individual Immunity Idol.

Hurry up and wait. 😩 That's what the Survivor 42 cast is now doing. We recently got word that Season 41 is in the process of being filmed in Fiji, but now, we find out that the Season 42 cast has reportedly been unable to travel there for filming, which has caused delays in the production of a new season.⁠
⁠
Survivor 42 was intended to be the spring 2022 season on CBS, with the network working hard to film back-to-back seasons in Fiji. 🌴 Currently, it looks like Survivor 41 is still on schedule to debut in the fall of 2021, but after that, it is unclear when the next season of the show can even be filmed.⁠
⁠
So why the hold-up? According to a report from fan site Inside Survivor, “a second outbreak of the highly infectious Indian COVID-19 variant over the past two weeks has seen the government impose new restrictions, including a ban on air travel in and out of the country.”⁠

Kellee didn’t want Dean to be at risk of getting sent home at Tribal Council so she devised a plan to save him. Feeling safe, Kellee gave Dean her idol to use. It would really shake things up.

When Jeff Probst read off the votes, Dean received five of them. They were all canceled out because he had played the idol. This meant that Jack Nichting went home with just two votes against him. Guess which two?

Dean Kowalski on Survivor: Island of the Idols

We previously reported on Dean this season, right after he had endured himself to a number of viewers at home. The former Columbia basketball player has a strong following now, despite being on the outs in his own tribe.

He is a 28-year-old from Westfield, New Jersey, and he now calls New York City home. Dean used to teach math, so he definitely has a mind for strategies that could pay off later this season.

The great news for Dean is that Survivor: Island of the Idols will showcase the merge during the next episode. Dean has made it to a pivotal point in the season, where everyone comes together to form one tribe.

Now, Dean can work at rekindling things with former tribe members and hope to remove the target that had been placed on him. That will begin taking place during the all-new episode next week.

Survivor airs Wednesday nights at 8/7c on CBS.
