Survivor: Kaôh Rōng First Elimination

Brawn tribe member Darnell Hamilton has become the first castaway to be voted out of Survivor: Kaôh Rōng – Brains vs. Beauty vs. Brawn.

The 28-year-old postal worker from Chicago, Illinois was eliminated after the Brawn tribe lost the first immunity challenge of the season. Darnell was partly blamed for the loss of the challenge due to losing the swimming goggles during the diving portion which put the Brawn tribe severely behind.

    I don’t understand the logic not only in putting Alecia in the “Brawns” tribe but also in her tribe not voting her out 5-1 at the first Tribal Council. So annoying x___x .

    Should have guessed that Darnell doesn’t do to well. Everyone else had a picture before second chance aired his was relatively recent

    • Martin Holmes

      Yeah. But remember that Tony and Mike were last to be spoiled in their seasons and ended up winning!

    • Alex Presser

      His name was there though, I think that’s just cause no one could find him on social media
