Being a power duo early is key to longevity, but the Survivor: Island of the Idols episode 4 preview shows a showmance early is key to potential disaster.

The Survivor: Island of the Idols episode 4 sneak peek will display a short snippet of the Lairo tribe as it will air on television.

Despite coming out the gate on the outs with the Lairo tribe, Aaron has skirted by tragedy and has planted himself as the face of the tribe’s men. He’s been vital in keeping the tribe in challenges for the physical portion; it’s not his fault Dean can’t solve puzzles yet has attempted them failingly twice!

However, he might be pushing his luck in Survivor: Island of the Idols episode 4, even if he makes some good points. As seen in the preview for “Plan Z,” his misplaced confidence in escaping early removal has not overcome his hubris, as he’s seen in a confessional deliberating who to vote out next since, you know, he “calls the shots” on Lairo.

As a reminder, two men have been voted out on Lairo, and despite insisting on grouping together to vote out a woman, they folded instantly because they rightfully feared Vince had an idol. Now Aaron sees himself going against the grain, and instead of voting out an easy boot in Karishma, he is pointing the proverbial gun towards the showmance of Dean and Chelsea.

He points to them as a power couple that needs to be “squashed,” but he doesn’t quite say which among them he would target. Obviously, it’s in his best interests to get rid of Chelsea, but little does he know she has an idol, and the women aren’t likely going to turn on Chelsea considering the tribe’s dynamics. I wouldn’t be surprised if either Dean or Aaron is the next voted out of Survivor: Island of the Idols.
