Survivor spoilers about an upcoming twist seem to have been revealed by a fan site of the show.
This new major twist has become a hot topic of debate among Survivor fans already, possibly suggesting that this is why a current edit is taking place with one of the castaways.
It has already been a season packed with twists, including Erika Casupanan breaking an hourglass to turn back time. Erika completely changed the game for the final 12 castaways.
Now, it looks like the Survivor producers are going to be introducing another twist this season that could lead to someone getting eliminated on the spot.
Survivor spoilers hint at game-ending twist for someone
A current Reddit thread has fans chatting about something that was written up for the fansite, Inside Survivor. It routinely shares inside information about Survivor, including topics like the Survivor 42 cast names getting released early.
It looks like the new Survivor twist could be called “Do or Die” and it boils down to basically being a coin flip that could decide the fate of a castaway.
“How it works is that a very, very unlucky player will be forced to play this at Tribal Council. If they pick right, then they’re still in the game. If they pick wrong, then they’re out of the game. No idols or advantages can save them, even if they have one. Their torch will be immediately snuffed,” wrote a Reddit user.
Examining this potential Survivor twist a little more
Breaking down this possible twist, it looks like Jeff Probst will tell the castaways before an upcoming Individual Immunity Challenge what is at stake. If it’s a physical challenge, then people who are worried about risking their game will likely make the decision to just sit out. But someone sitting out then puts them at risk of getting voted out at Tribal Council. The first person eliminated during the challenge would then have to risk their personal game at Tribal Council.
Here is where some current Survivor rumors intersect with these potential Survivor spoilers. Heather Aldret has been getting very little screentime during Survivor 41, and it hasn’t been well-explained why that is taking place. Could it be that Heather gets eliminated during the “Do or Die” twist and that the producers feared showing her too much would lead to anger upon her exit? We shall see, and it would definitely explain her lack of footage.
Many of the Survivor fans that have been against all of the new twists presented during Season 41 are very likely going to get further upset if the “Do or Die” twist does appear in an upcoming episode. At the same time, it definitely raises the stakes for an Immunity Challenge if the first person out could be at risk of immediate elimination.
Survivor 41 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
