Survivor SA: Viewers turn against Kingpin Rob

Thursday night’s episode of Survivor SA saw the contestants fight to get Danté out as they believed he was a physical threat, leaving fans to turn on frontrunner Rob.

The latest episode of M-Net’s Survivor SA, which aired on Thursday, 1 August 2019, saw the tribe members base their votes on who has been able to sustain the most amount of energy due to winning the previous reward challenges. All fingers pointed to physical threat, Danté, which led to him being voted out in last night’s tribal council. The tribe members, once again, followed Kingpin Rob’s decision, who rallied the weak contestants by saying they are staying weak because they are not given the opportunity to win rewards in physical challenges due to Danté’s undeniable strength. His appeal managed to convince his fellow contestants, driving them to vote in his favour.

Viewers took to social media to share their frustration with Rob, with many stating that the other contestants don’t realise that he is setting them up for failure. Tumi Makwela shared a tweet which stated, “Rob dislikes Danté because he’s the only one that doesn’t suck up to him. The rest are spineless; with the exception of Jacque, whose fault is premature panicking.” Claire Dianne also commented, “Alliances aside, I genuinely cannot, for the life of me, understand how no one has figured out what a huge physical threat Rob is yet. Is he hypnotising everyone with those beautiful eyes?”.

The upcoming episode of Survivor SA sees Rob trying to defend his position at the top as the other contestants realise that they do not stand a chance next to him in physical challenges.

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