booted tribe members return, win, so two will rejoin the game; Osten quits.
In a major twist, the six booted Survivor Pearl Islands tribe members returned as a third tribe last night, causing the remaining player’s already withered bodies to convulse. The third tribe, known as The Outcasts, was short-lived: They competed in a single challenge for the chance to vote up to two of their six members back into the game. Jeff Probst told us in between pirate stories that they had all been subsisting on rations, at “a secret camp”, the NY Post says. Since they beat both tribes in the challenge, Drake and Morgan went to tribal council to each vote a member out. Drake dumped Shawn, while Morgan didn’t even vote, as Osten decided to “lay down his torch” and be the first Survivor player ever to quit, which seemed to piss Jeff off. Next week, the Outcasts vote to send two back into the game; those two will have automatic immunity for at least a week.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.
