Australian Survivor Season 04 Episode 06 Descriprion
After blindsiding Aimee, AK is thrilled that his plan worked, he sees himself as the new leader of Samatau, and he doesn’t have to explain himself because Locky and Tara tried to blindside him. A new majority alliance of AK, Jarrad, Peter, Tessa, and Ziggy has formed on Samatau. Peter does admit to the tribe that he cast the deciding vote as he wanted to make his own move in the game and felt that Tara only saw him as a number in the game. Tara is extremely hurt and angry at Peter’s betrayal stating that she has protected Peter since the beginning and his betrayal has hurt her. Tara accuses AK of being the new puppet master and everyone else is his puppets. AK believes that Tara has sealed her fate and will be the next one voted out.
Reward challenge: The members of each tribe line up on a very narrow balance beam. One tribe member at a time, they must move across the beam and around the other tribe members. The person crossing can only touch one member at a time. If two people touch at once or a member falls into the water, they must start all over. Once a member reaches the platform, the next person may proceed. The tribe who gets all their members across first wins. The winning tribe is awarded a survivor barbecue consisting of sausages, hamburgers, prawns, and beer.
Samatau won the challenge. Ben struggles during the Reward Challenge and falls off the balance beam multiple times. Samantha believes that Ben is the weakest link on Asaga and needs to be voted out next.
While Samatau is enjoying their barbecue and bonding, AK changes the mood when he starts to search for an idol clue. Tara and Anneliese are bothered by AK’s actions, believing that AK is only thinking about himself and is causing more division in Samatau than there ever has been. Tara begins to break down and cry over the stress of the game, feeling upset that she has found herself on the bottom and that AK has ruined her game. Locky and Anneliese support Tara and encourage her not to give up. Tara gets some of her strength back and is determined to make the tribe see AK’s true deceitful nature.
On Asaga, Samantha gets pulled under the tide and Luke and Mark have to save her. Later, Henry reveals in secret that his strategy was to tell people he is a yoga instructor so people believe that he isn’t a strategic player when he is actually a laborer. Sarah and Samantha begin to suspect that Henry is not really a yoga instructor based on comments he makes about his yoga background. Henry is still threatened by Samantha and Mark’s relationship in the game and is concerned that Samantha is catching onto his lies. Henry notes that Samantha’s strategy is to talk to everyone and collect information and she has been playing a strong game. Henry hopes to finally throw the next challenge to get rid of Samantha once and for all.
Immunity challenge: One by one, members from both tribes will go through a series of obstacles in the water: a high dive, a slide, and a next crawl. Once all of the tribe members are on shore, they will use a machete to hack through a pole to release puzzle pieces. Two tribe members will then use the pieces to complete a puzzle. First tribe to complete the puzzle wins.
Henry volunteers for the puzzle portion of the challenge, along with Sarah, and does not perform well, allowing Samatau to put the puzzle together first and win Immunity. Henry confesses in private that he saw an opportunity to throw the challenge and did with the hopes of sending Samantha home.
Back at Asaga, there are two plans that appear to be forming. Samantha and Mark believe that their alliance with Henry, Jacqui, and Sarah is tight and that the tribe will be splitting the votes between their two weakest players, Michelle and Ben. However, Henry hopes to blindside Samantha and has approached Sarah, Odette, Michelle, and Jericho to see if they will join his plan. Henry knows that Samantha has made a lot of good relationships and people might stick with her to keep strength in the tribe. While a plan has been put in place, Samantha and Mark cannot help but feel concerned that a plot may be forming against them. Mark speaks with Sarah, Jacqui, and Kent about the vote and he believes all of them showed signs of deception while talking to him. Samantha and Mark hope they can trust their allies and that they’ll stick to the plan.
At Tribal Council, Samantha makes a plea to the tribe to keep the strongest physical tribe together so they can win the challenges. Samantha knows that people might be judging her as a threat for being very social, but she argues that people who play under the radar are just as dangerous. When the votes are read, Mark and Samantha voted for Michelle. But the rest of the tribe joins Henry and Jacqui’s plan to blindside Samantha. Samantha becomes the sixth person voted out of Australian Survivor.

Australian Survivor Show Descriprion
Australian Survivor is an Australian reality game show based on the international Survivor format. Following the premise of other versions of the Survivor format, the show features a group of contestants, referred to as “castaways” as they are marooned in an isolated location. The castaways must provide food, water, fire, and shelter for themselves. The contestants compete in various challenges for rewards and immunity from elimination. The contestants are progressively eliminated from the game as they are voted off the island by their fellow castaways. The final castaway remaining is awarded the title of “Sole Survivor” and the grand prize of A$500,000.
The series first aired in 2002 on the Nine Network, who as of 2020, also hold the first-run Australian broadcast rights to the flagship American edition of Survivor. In 2006, a celebrity edition aired on the Seven Network. Both iterations of the series only lasted one season due to low ratings.
In November 2015, the Network Ten announced at its network upfronts that it would be reviving the series in 2016. The series commenced airing on 21 August 2016. Unlike its predecessors, the series was renewed by Network Ten for another season for 2017, and has continued to be successful since. An All-Star edition featuring former contestants aired in early 2020. A second 2020 edition set to feature new civilian players was expected for later in 2020, but production on that season was postponed due to issued travel restrictions as well as safety concerns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. This season is now set to be produced in mid-2021, in an Outback location near the town of Cloncurry, Queensland and is set to air in late 2021.
Australian Survivor Show Format
The show follows the same general format as the other editions of Survivor. To begin, the players are split into two or three tribes, are taken to a remote isolated location and are forced to live off the land with meagre supplies for a period of several weeks. Frequent physical and mental challenges are used to pit the tribes against each other for rewards, such as food or luxuries, or for immunity, forcing the other tribe to attend Tribal Council, where they must vote one of their tribemates out of the game by secret ballot.
About halfway through the game, the tribes are merged into a single tribe, and challenges are on an individual basis; winning immunity prevents that player from being voted out. Most players that are voted out during this stage become members of the Tribal Council Jury. When only two players remain, the Final Tribal Council is held. The finalists pleads their case to the Jury as to why they should win the game. The jurors then have the opportunity to interrogate the finalists before casting their vote for which finalist should be awarded the title of Sole Survivor and win the grand prize of A$500,000 (or a A$100,000 charity prize in the celebrity season).
Like other editions of the show, the Australian edition has introduced numerous modifications, or twists, on the core rules to prevent players from over-relying on strategies that succeeded in prior seasons or other editions of the show. These changes have included tribe switches, players being exiled from their tribe for a short period of time, hidden immunity idols that players can use to save themselves or another player at Tribal Council from being voted off, voting powers which can be used to influence the result at Tribal Council and players being given a chance to return following their elimination.
Survivor in Australia
The first Australian version of the Survivor format was filmed in late 2001, and aired in 2002 on the Nine Network. The program was a contractual obligation if the network were to be allowed to continue to broadcast American Survivor. The program was criticised for poor casting and lower production value than the popular American edition and it was not renewed due to low ratings. The Nine Network still hold the first-run rights to American Survivor and have continued to broadcast the American edition of the program ever since. Since 2013, recent seasons air on Nine’s secondary channel; 9Go! and streamed on 9Now within hours of the original American airing.
In 2006, the Seven Network found a loophole in the contract between the Nine Network and Castaway Television, which allowed them to produce a celebrity version of the series, due to a celebrity format being viewed as different from the original format. The Seven Network did not renew the series.
In November 2015, Network Ten revealed at its upfront event that it would air a new season featuring regular contestants to air in the last quarter of 2016. This new season gives Australian Survivor the distinction of being one of the few Australian programs to have aired across all three major commercial television networks in Australia. Australian Survivor has continued to air yearly, concluding its most recent season in March 2020.
Following Network Ten’s acquisition by CBS (the United States broadcaster of the format) in 2017, starting in December 2018, CBS made the complete American Survivor series available on their paid Australian streaming platform, Paramount+ (known as 10 All Access until 2021). The broadcasts include the previously unaired to Australia Survivor US: Marquesas, which Nine did not air due to its commitment in airing their 2002 version of Australian Survivor. A select few seasons are also uploaded to 10’s free streaming site, 10 Play. Each US season is uploaded some time after the season has aired on Nine Network, when the rights to that season revert to CBS under their agreement. Additionally, as of September 2020, both seasons of Survivor NZ and the Philippines & Island of Secrets editions of Survivor South Africa were also uploaded on 10 Play. In 2021, 10 Play offered week-to-week streaming via 10 play of the Immunity Island edition of the South African series as it aired in South Africa.
