Australian Survivor Season 06 Episode 14 Descriprion
On Day 29, the Champions and Contenders tribes merge into one. Everyone celebrates the achievements that they’ve made in the game and are looking forward to the next stage of the game. The contestants immediately compete in their first reward challenge.
Reward challenge: Castaways will stand holding a sandbag tethered to a bucket of water above their head. During the challenge, castaways will be offered various temptations including food items, a call home and game advantages, which they may eliminate themselves to receive. The last person left standing wins a mystery crate which will provide them with exactly what they need “to start the next phase of the game”.
During the Challenge, Pia and Harry drop out for a phone call home and everyone else except for Daisy, David, and Simon drop out for food. Daisy wins the reward challenge.
Back at camp, Andy names the merged tribe, “Soli Bula”, which he claims means coming together, but he reveals later it means “sacrifice”. After the initial meet and greet, David gathers the original Champions, minus Luke, to discuss reuniting to take out the Contenders. David fills the Champions in about everything going on with his tribe, including Shaun and Daisy’s relationship and Andy’s lies and trying to throw the immunity challenge. David proposes that either Shaun or Daisy go first as they are a powerful duo and Shaun could win a lot of challenges moving forward. Luke remains back at camp to be a spy on the Contenders and prevent them from talking together too much. Shaun does attempt to rally the original Contenders together to get rid of the Champions because he feels they are a united group. Later, Janine, Pia, and Abbey do discuss potentially blindsiding David as they believe his ego is getting out of hand and he is a dangerous player.
Later, Daisy does receive the crate from the reward challenge and it contains all of the items used to tempt people to drop out of the challenge, including food, a phone call home, and an advantage in the next immunity challenge. Daisy also discovers a hidden immunity idol in the crate. When Daisy returns to camp, she tells everyone that the crate contained the food items. However, David believes she is lying because Jonathan said the crate would contain the tools to get you through the next phase of the game and he believes that this means Daisy got an idol. Daisy only reveals to Shaun that she got an idol, which gives the Contenders hope that they can use it to gain power.
Immunity challenge: Castaways will stand holding a rope which holds up a barrel containing 60 per cent of their individual body weight. The rope is threaded through a tile which will smash when the barrel is dropped. The last person left standing wins immunity.
Daisy’s advantage is revealed to be that she can start the competition ten minutes after everyone else. After fifty minutes, the competition comes down to Abbey, Daisy, and Shaun. Shaun outlasts the others to win immunity.
Back at camp, the Champions know their plan to get rid of Shaun will not happen as he won immunity. Since they are also concerned Daisy has an idol, the Champions propose to take out Andy as they believe that Andy is a strategic threat and they believe he has told several lies in the game which make him untrustworthy. The Champions even approach the Contenders to see if they would get rid of Andy. David also hopes to flush Daisy’s idol and tells her that she’s going to receive some votes because people believe she has an idol. Shaun believes that the Contenders should remain together and proposes to Daisy that the Contenders place their votes on David and that Daisy play her idol on Andy. However, Daisy has a concern about whether she can trust Andy because he tried to blindside her before. In an effort to save himself, Andy approaches David and tells him that he wasn’t trying to throw the challenge and that Shaun and Daisy were the ones that wanted to lose the challenge. David doesn’t know whether he can trust Andy or not and tells him that the only way he can prove his trust is if he votes for Daisy tonight.
At Tribal Council, the tribe discusses the tribal lines, whether it is still Champions versus Contenders, and the concept of loyalty. During this discussion, Andy takes a lot of heat from David and Luke regarding some previous lies he’s told, including throwing the immunity challenge and his attempt to blindside Daisy when Hannah left. Andy attempts to defend his actions to the tribe. After the votes are cast, Daisy decides to play her idol for herself. Daisy does negate one vote cast against her by Andy. However, the rest of the tribe unanimously determines that Andy’s lies have caught up to him and he cannot be trusted. Andy becomes the thirteenth person voted out of Australian Survivor. On the way out, Andy admits to Daisy he did cast a vote or two for her and also blurts out that David has an idol with the hopes that he derails David’s game.

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.
