It's Tribe Swap time! As the game heats up, the time has come for the castaways to truly play their own game, even if it means turning on a loved one.

The previous night's Tribal Council plays on the minds of quite a few castaways. In true Tribe Swap fashion, not everything is rosy, as strong personalities struggle to navigate a new environment.

One castaway moves heaven and Earth to try to get their Tribe to love them once more. At Tribal Council, an epic playbook blindside is executed to the letter.

It's no surprise that it's always the quiet ones you need to watch for, and this episode someone's game really begins to heat up.

13. Sun, Feb 27

Another testing Immunity Challenge, with the last two standing being the most unexpected. With secrets exposed and alliances rocked, the vote at Tribal Council is a total surprise for one Castaway.

14. Mon, Feb 28

In a puzzle-making Immunity Challenge, a challenge beast is exposed. Will this place a huge target on their back and get them eliminated from the game?

20. Mon, March 21

Fallout from last night's Tribal Council divides the remaining tribemates. From playing in the middle to striking from the top, one Castaway proves they were merely biding their time to make big moves.

21. Sun, March 27

Reeling after the latest Tribal Council, the remaining castaways take stock of what's occurred and where it leaves them in the game. A Reward Challenge side deal leaves some tribemates on the outer.

22. Mon, March 28

A puzzle Immunity Challenge separates the muscles from the strategic, but will the result upset an alliance? At Tribal Council, nothing goes to plan as unwelcome surprises leave everyone on edge.

23. Sun, April 03

The end is nigh as five Castaways are whittled down to four. At the Immunity Challenge, everyone digs deep but one tribemate pulls out all the stops, giving them a great shot at being Sole Survivor.

24. Mon, April 04, 2022 (finale)

After 47 days in the Queensland wilderness, it all comes down to this. An epic challenge weeds out the weak from the strong, and one castaway is crowned Sole Survivor, walking away with $500,000.
