Survivor 42 only has two episodes left, with the penultimate episode airing on May 18 and then the three-hour season finale arriving on May 25.

There is still a lot of action left to take place this season, as there are six castaways still vying for the $1 million prize.

On the latest episode of Survivor 42, it was Drea Wheeler who got voted out at Tribal Council. That left Jonathan Young, Mike Turner, Maryanne Oketch, Romeo Escobar, Omar Zaheer, and Lindsay Dolashewich as the final competitors.

For Survivor 42, Episode 12, viewers will get to watch as one more person is eliminated, setting up the final five people who will still be in the running when the big season finale arrives later in May.
