Survivor race war update: with five people voted off, all the whites and Asians remain

The tribes may have merged on Survivor Cook Islands, but the show’s diverse cast is getting less diverse with every passing week. Five people have now been voted off, and all five white people and all five Asians remain. What does this mean? Perhaps nothing, but here’s the breakdown so far.

Number of people voted off by original tribe membership:

  • Aitu (Latino): 3
  • Hiki (black): 2
  • Puka (Asian): 0
  • Raro (white): 0
