Survivor: Game Changers – Eleventh Boot

In the game of Survivor which keeps evolving, the power of an alliance could shift anytime when one of their members go rogue. This shift in power shows how the game doesn’t always revolve around alliances anymore, it’s now also about finding the right voting blocs and trust clusters.

With the pressure of the season’s subtitle, Game Changers, some of the people in the game are pressured to make big moves which will be considered game changing, and like in previous games, big moves could either fail or succeed. The results never vary as big moves could paint a huge target on people’s backs, it’s just up to them how they would survive.

With the caliber of players this season, it all depends on who’s going to pull the trigger first, and the eleventh person voted realized that the hard way.

Zeke’s first outing on Survivor was in Millennials vs. Gen X where he lead his own alliance before being ousted by the majority that took over when Will flipped. Because of his strategic prowess, he was immediately asked to return weeks after the filming of Millennials vs. Gen X.

Zeke started Game Changers at Nuku then at Tavua where his team never lost an immunity challenge. That all changed when he was placed in NuNuMana where they lost the last 2 pre-merge immunity challenges, and the second time they lost put Zeke on a very tight spot when he was outed by Jeff Varner, something that he handled very well on the spot.

Despite of what happened, Zeke kept his cool, but it didn’t stop him from wanting to make a big move, and basing on the speech he made as a member of the jury in Millennials vs. Gen X, he’s all about the evolution of the game. This season, however, his desperation of wanting to take control didn’t work for him as it only caused distrust to some of the people in his alliance, resulting to one of the biggest blindsides of the season.

Zeke was voted out 5-3-2, with Andrea, Aubry, Cirie, Michaela, and Sarah voting for him. Brad, Sierra, and Troyzan voted for Tai, while Zeke, and Tai voted for Sierra.
