Australian Survivor Season 04 Episode 11 Descriprion
On Asaga, Odette is devastated that she has lost both Jacqui and Kent as allies in the game. Odette knows that she is the next person on the chopping block to leave and is feeling like her position in the game is hopeless. Jericho takes the Hidden Immunity Idol clue he received to go search for the idol. Jericho believes that people perceive him as helpless and struggling in the game and he plans to use that as a strategy to help him move forward. While Jericho believes the clue is real, Henry reveals in a confessional that he gave Jericho the clue to the idol that he obtained earlier in the game with Jacqui. Henry is hoping that he would be able to reestablish his relationships with Asaga by giving Jericho the clue.
On Samatau, the tribe is feeling exhausted from a lack of food and the tribe’s flint has also broken so they’ve been without fire for two days. AK can tell Locky is frustrated with no fire and he hopes that Locky will finally explode and give AK an excuse to vote him out. AK intentionally goes up to Locky and makes comments about Locky’s fire making skills. Locky knows what AK is trying to do and keeps his cool despite feeling frustrated.
Both tribes receive tree mail and discover that everyone has received a care package from home. Odette receives a photo of her mother and she reveals her mother was killed in a car accident when she was fourteen-years-old. Henry also shares in private that he received his mother’s charm necklace and his mother died from cancer six weeks before the game started. Everyone’s spirits are lifted by receiving the care packages.
Before the Challenge, Samatau brings all of their rewards they’ve won to bargain for a new flint. Jonathan agrees to the deal. Jonathan then informs the tribe that they are not playing for Immunity today, but instead competing for someone in the game to have a chance to win the Ultimate Reward.
Reward challenge: One by one, three members of the tribe will jump off a platform in the water to grab a key and swim it to shore. Once all three keys are retrieved, they will unlock a chest containing pieces of a block puzzle. Two members of the tribe will work on the puzzle, and once complete, the final two members will use sandbags to knock off the puzzle. The tribe to knock off all pieces of their puzzle wins. The winning tribe goes to tribal council where they will vote one of their own to play for the “ultimate reward”.
Samatau won the challenge. Back at camp, the tribe ponders about what the Ultimate Reward could be. Locky hopes that the tribe will choose him because he wants to get the reward and improve his position in the game. However, AK is determined to make sure that his alliance gets the Ultimate Reward for their alliance. AK and Jarrad discuss sending either Tessa or Ziggy because they worry if one of them is sent, it’ll put more unwanted attention on them.
At Tribal Council, Jonathan reveals that the tribe will be voting for one person on Samatau to compete for the chance at the Ultimate Reward. Jonathan does reveal some information: the reward does not involve Asaga, the reward could benefit one person or the entire tribe, the person will be going away over night, but will return to camp the next day. The tribe discusses putting their best person forward that is well-rounded in all kinds of challenges so that they will win. Locky offers to go, stating that he is the strongest person. However, others believes that Ziggy might be the best well-rounded player and should be the one to go.
The voting takes place and Ziggy is chosen to compete for the Ultimate Reward. Ziggy goes to Exile Beach and reads the note. Ziggy is given the opportunity to find a Super Idol. The Super Idol has two powers: it will cancel someone else’s idol if that idol is played at Tribal Council and it will also provide safety for one person when played at Tribal Council. Ziggy has until sunrise to find it. Ziggy searches for over six hours and is able to find the idol. Ziggy celebrates her discovery and plans to keep the identity of the idol to herself.

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.
