Survivor: Edge of Extinction | Episode 1 | Predictions

Come on in, guys!

Once again the Predictions thread is back up to fulfill your Survivor: Edge of Extinction prophesying needs! Post your serious (or not-so-serious) predictions for Episode 1 here.

Episode title: It Smells Like Success

Synopsis: Castaways hover on the “Edge of Extinction” in an all-new twist, and four returning players attempt to bond with their new tribemates. Also, castaways tackle a giant puzzle in their first immunity challenge of the season, on the season premiere of SURVIVOR.

  • Avoid stating the painfully obvious. Be bold, and creative! Explain your theory.

  • Do not post spoilers as "predictions". This includes spoilery speculation (boot order, immunity wins, med-evacs, etc.) based on social media or promotional material. Please keep spoilers & speculation in /r/SpoiledSurvivor where it belongs. If you see what you think is a spoiler, report it privately to the mods.

Predictors ready?

Kama fawns over Aubry and Joe. Manu plots to takeout Kelley and David immediately.

Rob on Ometepe and Russell on Zapatera all over again?

Eh maybe more moderate like Russell and Penner being initial targets and Skupin being brought in for numbers

level 1

Joe gets the most confessionals as a returning player and Wardog gets the most as a new player.

ugh yup

level 3


level 2

Hell no, it's gonna be David

Someone correctly predicts a redemption island type twist within the first episode and attempts to take that into factor at the vote, but ends up coming across as shifty to the others

I like this one

level 1

I'm predicting that a returnee will receive votes at the first tribal, but not get voted out.

level 2

Agreed. I think it’s going to be David but he’ll survive

As long as it's not Wentworth!

I’m gonna be bold and say nobody gets purpled

That IS bold in a 60 minute premier with 4 returnees. I HOPE you’re right but I find it sadly unlikely

level 3
7 points · 2 months ago

In Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustler's 60 minute premiere, only Cole and Simone got 0 confessionals and Cole still got some screentime. I'm optimistic about the premiere!

level 4

No returnees, though. We're getting at least two confessionals each for the returnees, probably more.

level 2

No one did last year! Here’s to hoping! I’m worried EoE will take up time though.

level 3

That was a 90-minute episode, though.

level 4

Yeah, and it had no after-IC segment (besides Pat's brief medevac), no tribal, and no returnees.

level 1

Not-so-bold prediction: several people will be purpled due to one hour premiere. Bold prediction: a returnee will be one of the purpled players, maybe David.

level 2
2 points · 2 months ago

Oh noo, David is my fav returnee ! But I feel you might be right..

level 1

I hope they show Lauren's reaction when one of her favorites (Wentworth) is on her tribe.

I can see the Wardog being a big personality with a big edit, whether he makes it far or not. Rick and Wendy will probably also be fairly major characters, since they were the only newbies shown in the first teaser. No idea who loses or goes home yet.

I wonder how they're going to present this season to everyone at the beginning. They are going to tell them the name, right? But not the twist? Possible theorizing from the players before the merge...

level 2

They did show her reaction, it's in the sneak peek posted just a bit ago.

Rick breaks the shelter and shouts 'OH YEAAH'

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.

You can read more information about /r/Survivor and the redesign here.

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.
