Chase says editing faked his immunity challenge loss

On Survivor Nicaragua last night, Chase Rice was one of the last two people left in the endurance immunity challenge, at least until he let go of a rope and splashed into a pool, losing to Jane.

But Chase says he didn’t let go on purpose or unintentionally: it was because he was disqualified for an unidentified reason. Chase wrote on Twitter:

“Yea I definitely got disqualified from that challenge…good edit cbs, but I didn’t just let go”

While he doesn’t elaborate, the disqualification probably came from where he put his hands on the rope, since he was moving them a lot toward the end of the challenge.
