To be fair to Aubry, for all I've bagged on her game thus far, at least she recognises when she's in a difficult position. And, to be fair, in Survivor history, she's often thrived when she's thrust into a tough spot. And so it was the case here. Aligning with Joe is the obvious move at this point if she wants to stay alive in the game. Plus, I like the fact the recognised that Aurora is considered on the outs as well. The three of them could end up making a formidable trio if they stick together at the upcoming swap.

And, of course, she did well to search for the idol! The problem with being aligned with Joe is that he's always likely to be kept for challenges. By finding the idol she can level that playing field and it would have kept her going in the game had Kama lost immunity. Going into the swap, I feel like she's gotten a second wind. With an idol and potential new Manu allies (who seem to be open to working with returnees) I think she can re-ignite her game somewhat.

Good episode - up-vote.

Found the first idol of her Survivor career and rocked the immunity challenge. Upvote for me!

iirc that was the same puzzle she lost in ep1 of Game Changers? I am HERE for the redemption story of Aubry Bracco

Finding an idol and with a potential tribe swap on the horizon, it's an easy call from where her position was, to going up this week.

In such a chaotic week I'd probably go with Aubry as my choice for player of the week. Beyond finding an idol I didn't see much in terms of "play" but there's not a lot of options or standout play to choose from this episode.

Definitely not Michele

While Aubry and Joe came into the game with a substantial target on their backs, and despite Aubry's shortcomings when it has come to integrating herself into the newbies, her finger has always been on the pulse of the tribe and she always seems to know what's up. She's got great instincts.

Unlike Joe, from what we've seen, Aubry has been a lot more proactive in her approach to the game and finally found her first idol. Woot woot! With Joe being an obvious choice to keep around because of his challenge prowess, Aubry is the one in the most danger and she did what she had to do to give her some protection.

Moving into the swap I actually think she is in a great position with a lot of options. She knows that most of her fellow Kama tribe members are against her so she could easily swap over to the sinking Manu ship and offer herself up as a number - something Manu would be wise to consider. On the other hand, she could also pledge allegiance to Kama in the hopes of getting in their good graces.

Upvote from me, I've always liked her moxie.

Very good episode for her.

Whether she plays the idol right or wrong, FINDING the idol justified her being on the season!

level 2

Three times playing, three times on the bottom. I actually don't mind that, because as we're seeing with Wentworth, some people are actually better to watch when they're playing scrappy.

she's achieved just about everything she can in Survivor aside from win. It's weird because so much of her Survivor career has been spent on the bottom yet I can't help but feel like she's one of the best Survivor players? She's complicated for sure.

I'm not sure if she can be considered one of the best until she wins, in my opinion anyway. Rooting for her to win!

level 2

Love you Queen. Even tho you arent my winner pick I hope you win!

Okay, so your name is ColeslawAubry but you didn't pick Aubry? God, now I hope she wins. Your poor decision will haunt you forever.

level 4

Haha! I hope she wins too. I just dont like returning players vs Newbies seasons. I always root for the Newbies.

The most hilarious part is that my Flair Eric and WP Gavin are both against Aubry. Can't wait to see what happens.

I thought it was a great episode for her. With the tribal shuffle next week she has real potential to improve her standing as well. An easy upvote for me.

POTW - she had a target on her back for no reason other than being a returnee. Her tribe was gunning for the returnees from day 1. She needed an idol and she found an idol. Amazing episode for Aubry.

She checked off "Find an Idol" from her list. Now all she has left is to win - which, after this episode, suddenly does not seem so unfeasible. One of the biggest turnarounds from-episode-to-episode that I can remember.

Just one more checkbox left on the bucket list.

level 2

I was SO worried for my girl's chances after the edit from last episode made her look foolish. Now I'm much more optimistic for her chances, 1. Because she realized her standing in the tribe, 2. There's a tribe swap coming and 3. The edit of her finding the idol really struck me as if not a winners edit, then at least she goes deep into the game and is a fan-favorite which really is par for the course with her.

About time she found an idol.

Hopefully she actually uses it when people come for her.

Kelley maybe wins at the end in Cambodia but David definitely wins if he made it to the end in MvGX, yet he’s skated by a tribe that’s lost 3 challenges with no votes against him. Well done so far

Redesign Info


If you're reading this, you are using the reddit redesign. As the redesign is incomplete and lacks many tools used by /r/Survivor, we recommend using "Old Reddit."

You can use Old Reddit by using OR by opting out completely. You can see instructions for how to opt out here.

If you have any feedback about /r/Survivor's redesign, please message the moderators. However, please keep in mind that many aspects of the redesign are out of our hands for the time being.

User Flair

The user flair system is currently incomplete on the redesign. Therefore, users must request flairs on the old site. The text of the flair will display on the redesign, but gold/silver/winner flairs and winner badges will NOT show up on the redesign for the time being.

You can choose a flair on this page.


You can access the Reddit Survivor Discord here.

/r/Survivor and the Reddit Survivor Discord have a loose affiliation. While they are connected as partner platforms, they are moderated differently by overall different groups of mods. However, vote manipulation on /r/Survivor, promoted from Discord, will not be tolerated. Same with harassment that crosses channels, either way — this too will be dealt with by warnings and bans.
