If you’re paying close attention, you can see an EoE returnee competing in an Immunity Challenge for this Survivor: Winners at War finale promo.
The Survivor: Winners at War finale promo for “It All Boils Down to This” will show parts of the Edge of Extinction Challenge and the first Immunity Challenge while accidentally confirming who returns from the Edge.
A few years ago, the press photos for the Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers finale didn’t do the best job of showing all the players at camp in groups and on their own, more or less lampshading who would be voted out first of the Final Five. It’s a difficult task for promotions and marketing to promote the finale of Survivor seasons because they can only work with what the edited footage provides.
Unfortunately, the Survivor: Winners at War finale promo drops the ball a little bit by doing their best job in not showing who returns from the Edge of Extinction only for a small snippet near the end showing one player, for a brief second, competing in the Immunity Challenge. It’s a player that obviously earned their way back into the game from the Edge of Extinction Challenge, and that’s a shame.
The reason I’m upfront about this in our weekly promo piece is not to share who that person is, but more to let you know that the information of Survivor spoilers is out there, and it comes in the form of official content. The rest of this piece will discuss the trailer itself outside of spoiler content, including information about the two challenges’ layouts.
Edge of Extinction brings forth a second challenge that requires players to manipulate their tethered rope through a series of obstacles, digging through sand for bags of balls, and eventually make those balls through a labyrinth puzzle. The Immunity Challenge has variety, as well, with players completing a series of obstacles, puzzles, and racing back and forth to the top of a long water slide.
Interestingly enough, there are only three confessionals in this Survivor: Winners at War finale promo, with Boston Rob giving his “do or die” attitude, Sarah wanting a battle at the end, and Tony aiming to win the game or lose trying. If there was ever an indication that the race for the season’s champion being a two-horse race, this would be it right here.
