If you thought Boston Rob and Sandra were put up in a fancy Fijian hotel, the Survivor: Island of the Idols episode 7 secret scenes should shut you up.
Look, I understand that some parts of Survivor are produced or manufactured for a greater effect once it makes it to the air. Boston Rob’s infamous “tizzy” on Heroes vs. Villains was reshot for television because a camera crew wasn’t around to capture it, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen in the first place!
Still, that doesn’t mean that the show is fake, like some still believe 39 seasons in, even if it comes in the shape of disbelieving that Boston Rob and Sandra are actually living out in the wild. Well, the first of the Survivor: Island of the Idols episode 7 secret scenes should remove all doubt, as it takes a look at Sandra’s huge, gross blisters underneath her bandages seen in this week’s episode. You can’t fake blisters like that; it comes from living outside in the wild.
The Vokai treemail moment was one of the other secret scenes this week, as the tribe learned that the Immunity Challenge required equal parts brains and brawn. Tommy put himself out there to give 125% effort, as his neck was on the chopping block per the new tribal dynamics that came with Elaine’s Block a Vote advantage last week.
Looks like the elements are starting to get to Sandra. 👀

It makes sense that Noura’s secret scene, in which she put her target on Jamal, didn’t make it to the episode this week because Jack was her inevitable vote. However, it does show how much Karishma is pushing against Dean and how much work Kellee had to pull off to make her idol-plus-vote-split maneuver work to perfection.
The final Survivor: Island of the Idols secret scene shows us a bit more about Jack and how well his good-vibes nature improved his social standing within the Lairo tribe. We even learned about his musical upbringing in acapella and choir groups while himself, Kellee, Dean, and Janet went out to get their daily allotment of crabs. At least Jack is on the jury now!
