Australian Survivor Season 04 Episode 07 Descriprion
After Tribal Council, Jacqui and Henry celebrate blindsiding Samantha and believe that they got the biggest threat voted out of the game. Mark is furious that his tribe would blindside Samantha and swears to get to the bottom of who plotted against her. Mark shares concern with several people that Henry and Jacqui were behind Samantha’s blindside. Kent informs Jacqui and Henry that Mark is throwing their names out as the people who blindsided Samantha. Henry believes that it might be best to vote Mark out next because if he stays around, he might gain more power in the tribe and Henry desires to have full control of Asaga.
Mark approaches Luke about the vote and both share concerns that Henry and Jacqui are calling the shots and everyone is too afraid to plot against them. Luke states that he isn’t afraid to take anyone on in this game and hopes to split up Henry and Jacqui next. Luke finds it hypocritical that Henry openly criticized Samantha’s hard game play, but now Henry is taking on that role behind the scenes. Mark and Luke hope to blindside Jacqui at the next Tribal Council.
At Samatau, Locky, Tara, and Anneliese are still on the bottom of the tribe. Locky and Tara hope to convince Ziggy to join with them on the next vote to get rid of AK. Ziggy listens to their plea and debates on what to do. Ziggy is happy to be aligned with AK because he is a smart player, but she also knows she cannot beat AK if he makes it to the end of the game. Ziggy also believes if she saves Locky and Tara, then they will be indebted to her. While Tara tries to work the numbers, Locky is determined to prove his worth to the tribe in camp and in challenges by killing a shark with the machete and providing food for the tribe.
Immunity challenge: Two contestants are pitted against each other on a platform, armed with large padded bags. Their objective is to knock their opponent into the mud. The first tribe to 7 points wins immunity.
Samatau won Immunity. At Asaga, both pairs Henry/Jacqui and Mark/Luke approach the rest of the tribe to convince them to join their side in the vote. Henry and Jacqui hope to vote out Mark at the next Tribal Council while Mark and Luke hope to blindside Jacqui in order to make Henry know what it feels like to lose his partner in the game and to make people see that Henry and Jacqui are a power couple. The tribe is undecided on what to do as many worry that Mark could be a huge physical and social threat down the road whereas Henry and Jacqui have been a powerful strategic force on Asaga. Luke is determined to get rid of Jacqui and approaches several people to tell them the vote has switched to Jacqui. Ben is skeptical that the vote has switched, he doesn’t believe Jacqui and Henry are a power couple, and he thinks Luke has a problem with authority in the game.
At Tribal Council, there is a discussion regarding whether a strong tribe is one that is more physical or one that is more social and get along with each other. Mark makes a pitch to the tribe, telling them that Henry and Jacqui are pulling the strings, they are a power couple, and they blindsided Samantha. Mark proposes splitting up the power couple and voting out Jacqui because they’ll need Henry for challenges. Henry and Jacqui attempt to deny their power couple status and state that Samantha and Mark were the true power couple as they were cuddling together and were inseparable. Jericho makes a plea for the tribe to not vote based on vengeance, but to vote on keeping the tribe strong. Both Henry and Luke believe they are voting based on trust and hope the people they’ve approached will stick with their promises. When the votes are read, Jericho, Luke, and Mark all voted for Jacqui. However, the remaining members of the tribe sided with Henry and Jacqui and cast their votes for Mark. Mark becomes the seventh 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.
