“The game has changed again,” smiles longtime host Jeff Probst to the remaining “Survivor: Game Changers” castaways in this week’s episode trailer. “You are going to Exile Island alone,” he tells one of the castaways as the promo teases that the “twists keep coming.” Watch CBS’s preview above for Episode 6, titled “Vote Early, Vote Often,” and then update your “Survivor 34” predictions in our weekly event.
Since there are 15 players still in the game, it seems like an odd time to switch up the tribes for a second time. However, my money is on the theory that Probst splits the three tribes into two groups of seven, thereby sending the 15th player to Exile Island until after the next vote. Exile Island is a tempting place to visit, as there is often a hidden immunity idol or at least a clue, which makes going there to live alone worth all the trouble.
It appears as though fans are in for another shocker at tribal council. “Once again, I have no idea what just happened,” Probst says in the trailer. Does that mean another hidden immunity idol might shake up the game? As of last week’s episode, only Troyzan Robertson currently has an idol in his pocket. Tai Trang has a clue to an idol, his second of the game. And J.T. Thomas was eliminated after finding an idol last week, but failing to use it.
There is also a tease that a former castaway will make “a surprise return,” but it’s unlikely to be Malcolm Freberg despite our fans pleading for him to come back. As for this week’s “Survivor: Game Changers” predictions, Sarah Lacina is currently in the lead to win Season 34 while Sandra Diaz-Twine is our readers’ pick to be eliminated in 15th place.
