Alliances and loyalty are seldom, if ever, to be trusted without reservation in a game of skill, cunning and tactics such as Survivor.
That’s the hard lesson estate agent Paul Smulders (54) learnt at this week’s Tribal Council on "Survivor SA: Island of Secrets".
Paul got the boot despite sharing his Hidden Immunity Clue with his tribe mates last week and giving Rob the Immunity Idol to save him from leaving the Tribe. To top it off, he was voted out while last week’s target, bossy Seipei, was still around and when Nathan was struggling with an injury that he said caused "excruciating pain”.
We spoke to Paul to find out what happen.
Did you have any clue they were gunning you?
It was a total blindside. A total shock. I wanted to play a longer game but unfortunately I didn't get the opportunity too.
