Best Blindside from Survivor: South Pacific – Keith
When the two tribes merged in Survivor: South Pacific, there were six Upolo members and six Savaii members, meaning there was a possibility of a rock draw to determine who went home. After one round of voting ended in a stale mate between Keith and Rick, the remaining ten players voted again and if no one switched that time, then it was time to draw rocks.
No one on Savaii thought Cochran would flip despite how rude they were to him, but that’s exactly what happened. Cochran voted with Upolo and a stunned Keith was sent to Redemption Island.
Best Blindside from Survivor: One World – Kat
One of my all-time favorite blindsides was that of Kat in Survivor: One World. Kat was in the majority women’s alliance at this point in the game, but after making a mistake with who she took on a reward challenge and upsetting the remaining players in the game as a result, Kat became an easy target.
What makes this blindside so great is that moments before everyone voted, Kat said it was hilarious when people got blindsided and then got blindsided herself. It’s not only one of my favorite blindsides ever, but one of my favorite Survivor moments ever.
