Being Mrs Nice backfired on Lee-Anne van Reenen, a mother of two and a life coach from Durbanville, Cape Town. She felt the flames at Tribal Council in last night’s episode of Survivor South Africa: Island of Secrets before hers was extinguished.
In a last-ditch effort shortly before, she tried to woo her fellow Tribe Sa'ula mates. But it was too late - alliances were formed.
Steffi Brink chastised her for not approaching anyone of them sooner. And Lee-Anne’s response of not having had the time was refuted by Steffi, who felt she didn’t take the opportunities - of which, there were plenty.
On being the first person to be voted off the island, Lee-Anne says, “I was down to Sepei (Mashugane) and me. Nothing prepares you for it (Tribal Council).”
She defends, “I was very gullible. I thought we were all close enough. After the challenge, you only have an hour and a half to prepare for Tribal Council.”
