Survivor 46: Who has been voted off the island?

Survivor 46: Who has been voted off the island?

Survivor 46 is officially underway, welcoming 18 castaways to the remote islands of Fiji to compete for a $1m (£794,000) prize.

Across the season, contestants compete in gruelling mental and physical challenges as they seek to earn rewards and immunity from elimination.

“Right now, there’s at least one of you that cannot win, no matter who you go to the end with, it won’t matter. Something about your personality will not gel with this group, and you won’t get the votes,” longtime Survivor host Jeff Probst warned contestants in the debut episode.

“It’s one of the reasons why Survivor is so fun to watch, but it should be the number one reason why each of you play this game on your terms because that blind optimism that you have right now, that specific point of view that you’re bringing into the game – this going to work or not work – but it is your single biggest weapon. I’m glad you’re all here, I wish you luck.”

Contestants are progressively eliminated by way of popular vote each week until one remains and is crowned the Sole Survivor.

Find the list of castaways who have been voted off the island below. This article will be updated weekly.

Week One Elimination

Jelinsky was the first to be eliminated from team Yanu (purple) after he failed to show perseverance in the day’s challenges. Despite trying to assure his teammates that he is a hard worker who would never give up, he had already proved to them in the “sweaty challenge” that when the going gets tough, he’s not going to stick around. His exit was unanimously voted on, even though it seemed like it might be a toss-up between him and Jess Chong.

Week Two Elimination:

Team Yanu is dropping like flies. The second weakest link of the tribe, Jess – who had complained about a lack of sleep earlier in the games – was voted out unanimously at the tribal council. It wasn’t a surprising elimination, though, as she was only saved the week prior by Jelinksy’s exit. Still, she appeared shocked by her elimination after learning that the immunity idol Q had given her was indeed fake.

Week Three Elimination:

Randen Montalvo

Nami’s (purple) tribe lost its first teammate, Randen, after he woke up with a numb wrist and hand. It was originally thought that he might have just aggravated a nerve in his lower back while sleeping. However, after Randen underwent medical evaluation, the on-site doctor was worried it might be more serious after consulting with a neurosurgeon, who suggested a bulged disc in his neck might be pinching a nerve. And the only way to check for a bulged disc was with an MRI, which required him to be pulled off the island.

Week Four Elimination:

Bhanu Gopal

Bahnu became the third elimination from team Yanu after the tribe lost their fourth consecutive immunity challenge. He appeared to be an easy choice for his teammates, as he went into the tribal council without an immunity idol or a vote to cast. The latter of which he had lost in the previous episode after he failed to keep tribe intel to himself.
