Will There Be a Feast Tonight? is the seventh episode of Survivor: Africa.


Day 18Edit

After the previous Tribal Council, Brandon was fuming of how his ally Lindsey made a last-ditch effort to eliminate him to save herself. Brandon commented, "Lindsey left Tribal Council looking like a jackass." Despite his reservations, Brandon, along with Kim P., Teresa and Frank (both of whom still holding grudges against the younger Samburu alliance) were in a precarious position once the merger happens, with the original Samburu numbers only down at four, while the rival tribe Boran was still up with six original members (despite both tribes lost three Immunity Challenges, Silas, an original Samburu was swapped and then eliminated in Boran). Knowing he will be in danger if the Borans stick together, Brandon frantically approached Kelly, Tom and Lex to ask for his survival, to the point of even ignoring his only ally Kim P. Observing their potential voting advantage, Tom commented: "They're as nervous as whores in church."

Day 19Edit

At Boran, Clarence faced gastronomical pains after a heavy meal of chicken he had the night before. Though he considered the meal as his best after almost three weeks of starvation, Clarence commented, "This was an embarrassing way to die," doing a "number two" dangerously near elephants that might trample him. After the incident, Boran started to converse about the impending merge over brunch. During the conversation, Kim J. got surprised that Frank never heard the word "brunch" before. Frank made a wild guess of what the word means, "It's a combination of breakfast and lunch?" Teresa joked her friend, "Frank, do you want [corn] mush, er, brunch? Frank embarrassingly replied, "No, thank you." As the tribes laughed off the incident, they were still anxious of what's to come in the next three days.

Over at Samburu, Kelly and Tom observed that Lex started to act strange due to boredom. Foraging excess firewood and carving brand names to them, Lex gave his tribemates his carved wood creations, presenting them as his "ergonomically designed products." Kelly commented, "It's annoying. I want to vote off Lex and if there's no merger ever, I will do it in a heartbeat."

Day 20Edit

Early morning, the tribes received Tree Mail, instructing them to prepare for their next Immunity Challenge. When the tribes met host Jeff Probst at the Challenge area, Jeff asked the ten remaining castaways to drop their buffs, for they are now merged as one tribe. As Jeff handed each person a new green buff, the group cheered for making it to the merge. The survivor decided that Boran's camp was more livable, and they will be residing at Boran camp for the rest of the game (the items left at the old Samburu camp will be relocated to Boran as well). Despite their celebration, the game has to continue, for they will immediately compete in their first individual Immunity Challenge.

Kelly was the first to lower her arm, and was eliminated after lasting 14 minutes, with Kim J. following. Sitting over to the side, the two women wasted no time comparing notes about the happenings on both tribes since the tribe switch. When Jeff started to tempt the castaways with food, the rest of the group surrendered immunity in exchange for filled bellies. This left Clarence and Teresa the only castaways remaining. With Clarence expressing tiredness, he offered a game of "Rock Paper Scissors" to his last opponent, with Teresa winning. With this, Clarence conceded, thus guaranteeing Teresa three more days in Kenya.

Upon reaching camp, they were welcomed with food, a green-colored, blank tribe flag, and some paint to decorate their flag with. Lex decided to christen the new tribe as "Moto Maji," meaning "fire" and "water," the two most important components for survival. While the whole tribe bonded over food, Frank felt alienated from thr group, saying that: "Imagine getting in the mail an invitation to attend the Wagner family reunion and your name is Smith. That's just what it felt like. I'm just floating on the outside."

Day 21Edit

Frank wandered off and found an elephant. He attempted to mimic the mammal and tried to communicate with it. He said, "There are a few humans here I wouldn't interact with, but the animals, yes."

Shortly before the vote, Lex pulled Clarence and told him that "we've all decided to vote you off today," because Clarence was too much of a threat in Immunity Challenges. Clarence respected Lex for giving him the news, but Kelly was irked about the incident.

As the tribe prepared for Tribal Council, Teresa declared that she would honor the agreement she made with Clarence during the Immunity Challenge by saying, "I won't vote for Clarence tonight. He honored his word, and I have to do the same." But ultimately, Clarence was the seventh casualty of Survivor: Africa, but not before two votes, one from Clarence and one from Teresa, were cast against an unsuspecting Lex.



Challenge: When It Rains, It Pours
Each survivor's wrists were attached to a rope connected to a bucket of water overhead. Their arms had to remain above their heads, very still, because the slightest movement would upset the bucket above and shower the person with water, thus eliminating that person from the game. Jeff Probst will then tempt the contestants with some food items in exchange for giving up. Last person left standing wins immunity.
Winner: Teresa Cooper

Voting ConfessionalsEdit

I know you explained things to me, man to man, and I respect that. I've just gotta make sure that I make things a little hard on you on your way to winning this thing.


You are a really nice guy. I don't want to vote for anybody, actually. But, um, I wish you lots of luck in life.


Clarence, when you came to this game, you made some huge mistakes and had a pretty rough start. But you've come a long way, my friend. And it's been really good getting to know you. But I am here to win the game. To go all the way. And you're too big a threat now. So, you've gotta go. Sorry, brother.


This was a hard vote for me to cast. I think you're a wonderful, fascinating person. But your leadership, strength and skills me a little nervous for down the road, so I'm giving you my vote.


Final WordsEdit

You guys won fair and square. I am glad that I didn't do anything at any time to dishonor myself or my mother. I played a fair game and I lost. I lost because I was strong and I don't think there are many people who can say they lost because they were strong. I lost with integrity. I would have won with integrity.

–Clarence Black

  • This episode marked the first time that the original tribes merged with uneven numbers, with Boran still up with six members while Samburu is already down to their last four members. The post-switch tribes, however, are even at five to five.
  • This episode marks the first time that a woman won the first individual Immunity Challenge.
  • The Immunity Challenge would be later used as a challenge in “Stupid People, Stupid, Stupid People”, “I Promise...”, “A Sinking Ship”, and “Go Out with a Bang”.
