Kiran himself weighed in:
What an amazing journey it has been!— Kiran Naidoo Survivor (@Naidoo_Kiran) September 2, 2021
Thank you to absolutely everyone for the kind words🔥🙏🏾 I’m so proud of the game I played and to say I’m a @Survivor_SA alum.
I am steadily making my way through all the posts and just want to say it means the world to me❤️#SurvivorSA
Of course, his bestie Tyson posted a heartfelt note.
And even Chappies had something nice to say!
Here are some of the best goodbyes!
One thing about Kiran is that he's the most perceptive player I've ever seen. From Day one right up until now he's always known what's been going on the entire time. Even if he's going home he saw it miles away😭😭😭 that's incredible but so sad😔 #SurvivorSA pic.twitter.com/z3iH94gaiz— Masole Moerane (@SoletheBanker) September 2, 2021
Cried real tears at the boot. A wonderful player, a top-tier strategist & someone I'm grateful to now call a great friend. I loved watching them apply their super fandom to playing the game with immense logic, intellect & heart in a game any fan would be so proud of #SurvivorSA— Shannon Guss (Gaitz) (@ShannonGaitz) September 3, 2021
Pouring 1 out for an all time duo. Kison, Tyran, whatever it was, these 2 were the perfect complement. Fire & water, action & thought, our Dom & Wendell. They pulled off huge moves together & their farewell at camp & tribal hit me hard. So much love for this epic pair #SurvivorSA— Shannon Guss (Gaitz) (@ShannonGaitz) September 3, 2021
We’ll miss our Minister of Rice!
Oh, and one last nod to Chappies’ Diner will this pearl of a tweet!
