Australian Survivor Season 04 Episode 10 Descriprion
After Tribal, Luke and Michelle celebrate blindsiding Jacqui and are anxious to see Henry’s face when he finds out they blindsided his closest ally. Anneliese and Tara are also happy that they are both still in the game and have found cracks in Asaga that they can use to survive a few more rounds. However, Kent and Odette are feeling on the outs after Jacqui’s blindside and are feeling very sour at the rest of their tribe for not staying Asaga strong. Kent particularly feels like he is a dead man walking around camp and believes he will be the next to leave. The rest of the tribe takes note of Kent’s attitude shift and wonder if he has thrown in the towel.
At Samatau, Ben believes that switching tribes was the best thing he could have done as he felt on the outs at Asaga and feels more accepted at Samatau. Jarrad approaches Ben and tells him he’d like to work with him moving forward and get rid of Henry next. While Ben does trust Henry, he is also willing to do whatever it takes to survive. However, Henry is feeling like the most powerful person in the game as he has solid ties to Asaga and believes that he is making good relationships on Samatau.
Reward challenge: Half of the tribe will push a heavy cart filled with puzzle pieces to the end of a course. At the end of the course, two tribe members will hold up the top of a palm tree puzzle, while two other members work on the puzzle. The first tribe to complete their puzzle first wins a trip to an ice cream parlor.
At the Reward site, Asaga is enjoy their ice cream reward when Anneliese discovers a slip of paper in her ice cream cone. She finds out it is a clue to a Hidden Immunity Idol and the other clue is hidden in a palm tree at the site. Anneliese is able to grab the clue and finds out that a Hidden Immunity Idol will be hidden at the next Immunity Challenge site. Anneliese believes that she needs help to get the idol so she uses this opportunity to build an alliance with Sarah. Sarah confesses to Anneliese that she feels on the bottom of her alliance with Luke, Jericho, and Michelle and believes that working with Anneliese will be beneficial to her. Anneliese discovers that the idol will be hidden before the puzzle station, but she thinks it would be suspicious for her not to do the puzzle since she’s good at them. Anneliese gives Sarah the task of getting the idol for her and believes this will be a huge moment of trust for the two.
Back at Samatau, Henry is shocked and devastated that Jacqui has been voted out. Henry thought he had everything organized for Asaga moving forward, but he knows that Luke, Jericho, and Michelle flipped the vote and blindsided Jacqui. Henry is now realizing that his position in the game is not as solid as he thought, Samatau appears very united, and he thinks that he is next to go. Henry knows he needs to improve his position on the tribe and he tries to bring everyone together by playing a game on the beach. AK believes that Henry is the stronger, more likable version of himself and AK sees right through Henry as being a charmer. AK knows he needs to move against Henry soon before he changes up the tribe.
Immunity challenge: Six members of the tribe will work together to move discs to the end of a rope. After they’ve released the discs, they will roll them into a barrel. Once their in the barrel, they will load them into a chute to release a key. The last two members of the tribe will then use the key to unlock a chest containing puzzle pieces that they will use to solve a puzzle. First tribe to complete their puzzle wins.
The challenge is a complete blowout with Samatau securing victory, and Anneliese is able to grab the idol unseen. Additionally, Henry takes the opportunity to slip a Hidden Immunity Idol clue to Jericho. Back at camp, Kent is feeling vulnerable but decides not to run around and scramble. Kent sits down on the beach and decides that he is open for business and hopes people will approach him and talk to him. Tara does sit down with Kent and Kent expresses a desire to see Michelle go as she is the weakest on the tribe. Tara believes that voting out Michelle might be a good move because it will continue to break Asaga apart and get rid of a weak link. However, Luke is intent on keeping his alliance strong and sending Kent home next as he was close with Henry. Luke and Michelle know that Kent is putting up a fight to get Michelle voted out, but they hope Tara and Anneliese stay loyal with them as they saved the two of them last Tribal. Sarah also talks with Kent and believes that Kent can provide strength for the tribe. Kent proposes to Sarah that the two of them along with Odette, Tara, and Anneliese make five votes and they could have the majority. Sarah considers it because it would be a good opportunity for her to get power in the game.
At Tribal Council, discussion revolves around whether Asaga should keep a tribe with strength or a tribe that gets along better. There are varying opinions among the different contestants. The tribe notes that Kent and Michelle butt heads a lot in camp and the challenges. Michelle and Kent continue to campaign at Tribal Council to get the other one voted out and tell the tribe how they will benefit everyone moving forward. When the voting takes place, Kent and Odette vote for Michelle, Luke throws a vote towards Odette, but Anneliese, Jericho, Michelle, Sarah, and Tara vote for Kent. Kent becomes the ninth 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.
