Survivor South Africa Season 8 Episode 01 Descriprion
Arriving in the Wild Coast, the castaways took part in a random draw to select the two tribes, Vuna and Zamba.
Marooning Challenge: The two tribes were given 2 minutes to grab as many supplies as they can and place it on their tribe mats. At the end of the challenge hung two individual immunity necklaces, one for each tribe. Any castaway who grabbed a necklace would be immune at their first Tribal Council. A hidden Tribe Advantage discovered gave the castaway’s tribe camping supplies to go with their winnings.
Dino managed to grabbed the Zamba necklace, with Renier reluctantly revealing he found the Tribe Advantage, winning camping supplies for Zamba. Following the challenge, the Zamba tribe sort to build a temporary shelter with Thoriso and Renier noticing Jason’s hesistant approach at leading the tribe in camp building. Shaun and Qieän started sorting through the food supplies to look for idol clues, to the chagrin of Amy. On the Vuna beach, the tribe gravitated towards Anesu, while she and Wardah kept between them their real world connections through yoga. Despite Chappies’ best efforts, the Vuna shelter was incomplete before the night rain started.
Reward Challenge: Each tribe sent forward a delegate to compete in a fire-making challenge. The first to build a fire and successfully burn through their rope won flint and fire-building supplies for their tribe.
Chappies volunteered for Vuna and outshone Jason from Zamba in the challenge. Along with winning the challenge, Nico informed both Chappies and James that attending the reward challenge gave each of them Diplomatic Immunity. Both of them were given bracelets that have the ability to let them mutiny from their tribe if they lose an immunity challenge before the merge. Both chose not to reveal this potential immunity to their tribes, with Mike being suspicious of Chappies on his return to Vuna with the reward.
Immunity Challenge: From the river shore, five tribe members must swim out to buoys to retrieve rope ladder rungs. The next two tribe members then must build a rope ladder to reach a platform, where one tribe member must unravel puzzle bags and build the second rope ladder. At the top of the platform, the last two tribe members must complete a puzzle to win immunity for their tribe.
Despite lagging through the beginning portions of the challenge, Vuna came from behind to blitz through the puzzle for the win. During the challenge, Dino tried to get in contact with Paul on Vuna to convince him to be sent to Immunity Island if Zamba lost, something Shaun had noticed. Vuna, however, decided to send Thoriso to Immunity Island, granting her immunity at Zamba’s first tribal council.
At Immunity Island, Thoriso was given the option to play for a clue to her tribe’s hidden immunity idol at the risk of losing her vote, or to leave Immunity Island immediately. She chose to compete and keep her immunity, but lost her vote from failing the challenge.
Returning from the immunity challenge, the tribe consensus was to either vote out Shaun or Qieän for their idol searching on Day 1, which didn’t sit well with Jason, as he wanted to work with Shaun despite already forming a majority without him. When Jason tried to convince Reiner that the target could be Amy for failing the puzzle, Reiner started spreading the word throughout the majority of the tribe that Jason needed to go, with some doubts from Anela and Amy. Meanwhile, Shaun’s behaviour had alienated him from the tribe, leaving him without a clue on what was going on.
At Tribal Council, Shaun started to point out suspicious things he noticed from Dino in the immunity challenge, trying to get the target off his back. However, Anela tried to explain the majority’s rationale for not trusting Shaun. Upon returning from Immunity Island, Thoriso was forced to explain that she couldn’t vote, having accepted the island’s immunity necklace. While the Zamba tribe spoke about maintaining tribe loyalty, Shaun was left out of the loop with Reiner successfully blindsiding Jason out of the game for trying to save Shaun.

Survivor South Africa Show Summary
Survivor South Africa is a South African reality game show based on the popular international Survivor format.
As in all versions of the show, it features group of strangers who are marooned in an isolated location, where they must provide food, water, fire and shelter for themselves. The contestants will compete in challenges to earn either a reward, or an immunity from elimination. The contestants will be progressively eliminated from the game as they are voted-off by their fellow contestants until only one remains and is given the title “Ultimate Survivor” and be awarded the grand prize of R1 million.
The first five seasons of the show were produced by Endemol and broadcast on M-Net. Since Season 6, the show has been produced by Afrokaans Film & Television.
The first two seasons were hosted by Mark Bayly, and from the third season Nico Panagio took over the hosting duties.
Survivor South Africa 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 or three players remain, the Final Tribal Council is held. The finalists plead 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 “Ultimate Survivor” and wins the grand prize of R1 Million.
Like other editions of the show, the South Africa edition has introduced numerous adaptations, 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. The titular Island of Secrets and the upcoming Immunity Island, and non-playing Captains in Champions, kidnappings, tribe expansions and shuffles. Voting advantages and disadvantages, and in the first season, Panama introduced a Deadman’s Island where contestants voted out after the merge was isolated from the game until an opportunity to return arose.
