Survivor NZ: Negligence leads contestants to eat brown fluid
SPOILERS FOLLOW. Survivor NZ, episode seven:
A cruel act of negligence left gleeful Survivor contestants scooping brown fluid from a snap lock bag.
Host Matt Chisholm promised the Hermosa tribe cushions, a hammock and chocolate in recognition of their challenge victory. When it came time to hand over their reward, the chocolate was unrecognisable. The non-branded alleged chocolate had been removed from its packaging and placed in a plastic bag.
For Avi Duckor-Jones' efforts in defeating his Mogoton competitor, he was rewarded with a bag of brown fluid, far from what most would think of when promised chocolate.
Nevertheless, the Survivor contestants – who had been in Nicaragua for two weeks – described the fluid as "life-changing".
"It was out of this world. Synapses were just firing and my body was like, 'oh what is this? It is so good'," Duckor-Jones said as he scooped the fluid into his mouth.
Duckor-Jones had solely defeated the opposing tribe, in a one on one crossfit challenge that was taken to the extreme. His entire tribe, however, enjoyed the fluid and furniture.
Chisholm did not apologise.
Meanwhile, two exiled players were preparing to duel.
Georgia Bergerson had been exiled in an act of schadenfreude-filled strategy when she ended up in a reshuffled tribe outnumbered by the people she had very obviously planned to cull.
Mike, who had led the now broken alliance, promised vengeance after seeing Bergerson's eviction, saying "they're now on my hit list, all four of them".
Isabel Pearson had survived on "Redemption Island" after defeating Tony Deane, but couldn't keep up her streak when she faced off with Bergerson.
They had to balance plates on a stick, and in a photo finish Bergerson managed to keep her stack upright for a millisecond longer. Pearson was sent home.
