The Player of the Week for Survivor: Cambodia – Second Chance Episode 4 is…

Here is what the Inside Survivor contributors had to say about Tasha Fox after Episode 4:

Martin: For the second week in a row, Tasha Fox takes the crown for Player of the Week. She is the person calling the shots on the chaotic Angkor tribe and the first person who has learned how to control Abi-Maria. That is monumental. Abi hasn’t committed to any alliance for longer than one episode at a time, so for Tasha to keep Abi on her side for two episodes in a row deserves major plaudits.

Jacob: We’ve finally found the one person who can manage Abi. I didn’t think it was possible. Who knows if it will last? But Abi just played a part in voting out the one guy who had her back indefinitely and it’s entirely because of Tasha. If she can keep this kind of control of her allies in the coming weeks, Tasha could be a threat to win this whole thing.

Shawn: Tasha has broken the curse of the Brazilian Dragon and survives despite being aligned with Abi. While Savage is putting an enormous physical target on himself, Tasha is controlling everything behind the scenes. Most everyone is playing their second chance with more empathy and personal ties, but Tasha’s strategy of viewing people as a means to an end is paying off. She effectively has everyone on Angkor reporting to her, and she makes all of the eventual decisions.

Rob: I said it last week, and I’ll say it again – Tasha is impressing me so much this season. She very well could have been on the chopping block again since there was still a majority of former Ta Keo members on Angkor. She managed to keep Abi in her good graces, even when Abi was being difficult, and made Abi think she was in control, all the while Tasha was steering her in the direction she wanted her to go. I could see Tasha making it very far if she continues to play the way that she is playing.


Martin is a 28-year-old writer from Hull, England represented by Berlin Associates. He graduated from the University of Hull in English and Creative Writing. But if you have found yourself on this website you probably know him better as “Redmond” – the Survivor spoiler.

    I honestly think it should’ve been Woo. He was able to take Tasha and Savage, and even Abi out of that “Jeff magic.” For one of the first times in the game Woo even made one more statement after Probst had told him to vote.

    • Martin Holmes

      Woo was begging for his life in the game at Tribal Council. And while he made a good argument for himself, somebody who is begging for their life is not a player of the week.

        Oh, I didn’t think about that. Thanks!

    Kass = Player of the Week
    She was able to be nice and she even made a necklace for Kelley’s Belated Birthday! Come on’.

    Just so that the contributors don’t influence the vote . . . shouldn’t you open the vote to the fans first, and then create this page with the contributors opinions?

    Since this article was posted on Friday, you could open the vote after the show, and then publish the article with the fan vote and the contributors vote on Fridays.

    Perhaps we would then see different picks between Inside Survivor and the readers.
