Survivor SA: Viewers praise Letitia for her tenacity

Thursday night’s episode of the South African version of the hit reality series, Survivor, saw Letitia unexpectedly finding a hidden immunity idol, keeping her safe from tribal council.

The latest episode of M-Net’s Survivor SA, which aired on Thursday, 22 August 2019, saw the tribe members gunning for Jacques, as they continued with their efforts to vote him out in the next tribal council. Unaware if Jacques had an immunity idol or not, Letitia’s name was also on the chopping block, which made her wary of her place in the game.

The episode saw Letitia noticing that Jacques was on the hunt for a hidden immunity idol, leading her to discreetly join in on the search. Much to the surprise of the viewers, Letitia was able to spot the idol before Jacques, giving her an upper hand in the competition.

Viewers took to social media to praise Letitia for her perseverance and tenacity, with many stating that her age and physical strength has not stopped her from progressing in the game.

Sheldon Kuppan tweeted, “She is still pushing through. I was not a Letitia fan for a long time, but I remember the episode she wanted to leave. She chose to stay and fight for immunity instead of opting for food. She’s put herself in the right alliances and is always clued in.”

The upcoming episode of Survivor SA sees the contestants being rewarded with a visit from a member of their family, who will help them compete in the following challenge. The top six try to secure their place in the tribe, with the majority trying to overthrow the Kingpins.

Survivor SA airs on Thursdays at 19:00 on M-Net, DStv channel 101.
