Each week here on Inside Survivor we will be running a fan poll to determine the Player of the Week in Survivor South Africa. Readers can vote for the player that impressed them the most with their strategic gameplay, social skills, and overall performance. The poll will close on Wednesday.

In the twelfth episode of Survivor South Africa: Immunity Island, we saw the elimination of 39-year-old Yoga Instructor, Wardah Hartley. In one of the most dramatic episodes of the season, tensions were running extremely high. Following Anesu’s elimination, Chappies was determined to get revenge, and he didn’t mind taking any shortcuts to gain an advantage.

This led to Chappies stealing food for himself, both from the camp’s rice supply and his auction reward. However, when other tribe members found out about this, they were not happy.

Despite the negative feelings towards Chappies, the majority alliance was unable to take him out due to his Immunity win. And with Santoni having an idol, plus Chappies’ recently inherited Tribal Council Pass in play, the underdogs had all the protection.

While Kiran believed he could trick Santoni into not playing her idol, his plan ultimately failed. And after an intense Tribal Council which involved accusations of rule-breaking, Chappies played his Tribal Council pass on Anela, while Santoni played her idol for herself. This sent Wardah home with just 2 votes.

The winner of last week’s poll was Kiran with 194 Votes (45.86%).
