‘Survivor: Winners At War’ premieres with Natalie Anderson and Amber Mariano voted out at separate Tribal Councils
Survivor: Winners At War premiered with Natalie Anderson and Amber Mariano getting voted out of their tribes, Sele and Dakal respectively, at Season 40’s first two Tribal Council sessions and settling in at the Edge of Extinction during Wednesday night’s special two-hour episode on CBS.
Natalie, the winner of Survivor: San Juan del Sur, was voted out of her Sele tribe on Night 2 of the game instead of Survivor: Philippines winner Denise Stapley and Survivor: Millennials vs. Generation X winner Adam Klein.
Of the votes Survivor host Jeff Probst read aloud, Denise received two votes and Adam earned himself one.
“I don’t think it’s hit me yet that I just got voted off first,” Natalie said following her ouster.
“It’s truly weird holding my own torch. I’ve never picked up a torch at Tribal Council and I’ve never got voted out. But after so much expectations for myself, I’m here on the Edge of Extinction. I thought I would be crying, but I’m just mad.”
Amber, who won Survivor: All-Stars and also appeared on Survivor: The Australian Outback, was then voted out on Night 3 of the game instead of Survivor: David vs. Goliath winner Nick Wilson and Survivor: One World winner Kim Spradlin.
Jeff announced Kim had received three votes, while one person had written down Nick’s name.
“I knew coming into this game that I had a huge target on my back. I just put my trust in people hoping for the best, and it wasn’t the best,” Amber said before heading to the Edge of Extinction, where Natalie was waiting for her.
The Survivor: Winners At War broadcast began with 20 former winners arriving at a beach in Fiji to begin their 39-day game, competing against the best of the best.
Survivor: Pearl Islands and Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains winner Sandra Diaz-Twine, who also appeared on Survivor: Game Changers, admitted she felt betrayed by Survivor: Redemption Island winner and Survivor: All-Stars runner-up Rob Mariano, who also appeared on Survivor: Marquesas and Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, because they had mentored castaways together on Survivor: Island of the Idols yet Rob had allegedly never informed her that he’d be competing on this season.
Jeff greeted the returning castaways with a champagne toast to celebrate the start of an epic 40th season, but then the game was afoot and Ben predicted people would come out with guns blazing.
The 20 former winners drew buffs at random to determine which of the two tribes they’d be joining.
The Dakal tribe was comprised of Sandra; Amber; Kim; Nick; Survivor: Game Changers winner Sarah Lacina, who also previously appeared on Survivor: Cagayan; Survivor: South Pacific winner Sophie Clarke; Survivor: Cagayan winner Tony Vlachos, who also appeared on Survivor: Game Changers; Survivor: Blood vs. Water winner Tyson Apostol, who also previously appeared on Survivor: Tocantins and Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains; Survivor: Ghost Island winner Wendell Holland; and Survivor: Cook Islands winner Yul Kwon.
The Sele tribe was made up of Natalie; Rob; Adam; Denise; Survivor: Guatemala winner Danni Boatwright; Survivor: Kaoh Rong winner Michele Fitzgerald; Survivor: Micronesia — Fans vs. Favorites winner and Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains runner-up Parvati Shallow, who also appeared on Survivor: Cook Islands; Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers winner Ben Driebergen; Survivor: Africa winner Ethan Zohn, who also appeared on Survivor: All-Stars; and Survivor: Cambodia winner Jeremy Collins, who also appeared on Survivor: San Juan del Sur.
