The remaining four Castaways on M-Net’s Survivor South Africa: Philippines only have one thing on their minds this week: “Who do I want to sit alongside if I make it to the Final?” Standing between them and a one-in-three shot at the R1 Million prize and the title of ‘Sole Survivor’ on next week’s epic two-hour finale is the biggest Immunity Challenge in Survivor South Africa history – a dragon! 

After Katinka’s lapse in loyalty cost her dearly last week – and Werner saved Jeanne by playing his Immunity Idol to save her – fealty to ‘The Don’ is a hot topic. Tom’s word has been his bond throughout the game, Jeanne feels indebted to Werner for saving her and Annalize has been an alliance member of his since early in the game – but something’s got to give, since one of the four Castaways must have their torch snuffed and take a seat on the Jury bench, within sniffing distance of next week’s final.

Aside from the massive challenge of taming the dragon for Immunity, one Castaway also has the chance to have their mind and body soothed if they can high-step their way through the Reward Challenge.

There are no more Hidden Immunity Idols – but the game of Survivor always delivers twists. Tune in to Survivor SA: Philippines this Thursday (9 August) at 19:00 on M-Net 101 to see who can step into the arena with the Dragon – and win.

Also make a note to catch the fun-filled YouTube episode of Live After: Survivor South Africa on the DStv Online YouTube page, where the voted-off castaway will be in conversation with host Phil Mphela at 20:05 each week, directly after Survivor SA airs on M-Net 101. Want to ask a castaway a burning question? Tweet using #LiveAfter and @survivor_sa and Phil could have it answered in the ‘Ask Me Anything’ segment of the show.
