All season long "hurricane" Kelli has been stirring up trouble on the Titans tribe both with her antics and her lack of strategy when it came to playing the game of Survivor.
After clashing with her alliance when she refused to vote out Raymond, the writing was on the wall for the Queensland-based psychologist who was incapable of understanding Kirby when she tried to stress to Kelli the importance of having numbers for future votes.
Reflecting on her strategy (or lack thereof) to our sister publication WHO the morning after her onscreen elimination, Kelli admitted that she had no regrets about how she played her game.
"I don’t think I would play it differently. I do believe it was the right decision trying to take out a bigger player at that time, but we were heading into merge, and everything changes then, so I think I made the right decision trying to take out a bigger player. I just needed more time!"
Unfortunately for self-confessed Survivor superfan Charles, his time in Samoa was cut short after a huge twist at tribal council saw the Titans' original plans to eliminate Feras or Aileen left in tatters.
After JLP revealed that only three votes at tribal would count, with those votes going to whoever was able to win a surprise challenge, it was Aileen, Kirby, and Feras who took control of the game and secured themselves immunity.
After Winna played his hidden immunity idol, a tied vote saw the three tribemates revote between Raymond and Charles, the latter having his torch snuffed.
Speaking with our sister publication TV Week shortly after his on-screen elimination aired, Charles shared his disbelief that his game ended how it did.
"When he said that there was gonna be a twist, my heart stopped working, and when he explained the twist and how it was going to work, I knew the chances of both Aileen and Feras winning their votes were quite slim, so I was hopeful that the majority of us would get through."
[But] the unlikely thing happened and that was that."
From the get-go, Loss Prevention Officer Garrick was firmly allied with smooth talker Feras in his fight for survival against fellow Rebel Kirby.
Trying to stay ahead of the game, and despite pledging to stay "Rebels strong" post-tribe swap, Garrick and Feras were actively seeking a way to blindside their rival from the game.
Ultimately, however, their efforts backfired, as Kirby successfully lured her new Titan tribe members to her cause, sending Garrick home in the process with five votes to Kirby's three and Kellie's one.
"I tried my hardest to tell them the votes were going to be on me, it was so easy to see. The blindside really got me because I didn't think that was going to come, especially from the original Titans," a furious Garrick told the cameras after his torch was snuffed.
Speaking with our sister publication WHO, Garrick said that hindsight was "a wonderful thing."
"Prior to us walking out to go to tribal, I already knew. There were a few things that weren't shown where I actually said to Feras, 'We don't have the numbers,' but Feras was convinced that we did."
As for who he believes will take home the title of Sole Survivor, Garrick is backing his boy Feras all the way.
"We brought people on board [our alliance], but nothing got between myself and Feras. I really hope Feras takes the win. He deserves it and we played a really great game together."
It wouldn't be Survivor without back-to-back blindsides, and unfortunately for Sarah this time around it was her torch that was snuffed following a heated tribal council.
The firefighter by trade struggled to scramble with her tribemates, falling prey to her own insecurities and anxiety about who she could place her trust in, and which plan for tribal was the "real" plan.
Ultimately this cost her, Sarah's naivety resulting in a blindside originally planned for Caroline being redirected to herself.
"You never know who is telling the truth," she admitted to our sister publication TV Week after her onscreen elimination aired.
"I'm usually the one putting out the flames but tonight my flame got put out," she also sadly joked to JLP after leaving the game.
An unexpected tribal swap that split up her alliance became a major thorn in the side of powerlifter Viola.
After pushing for a blindside against Caroline and being convinced to press pause by her friend and ally Mark, it was bad timing (and rather ironic) that Caroline charged ahead and unexpectedly blindsided Viola instead.
"The unique situation that I was in [after tribe swap] was a git or get got type of situation," the 22-year-old admitted to New Idea after her onscreen elimination aired.

Unfortunately for this former professional athlete, the writing was in the stars that his torch would be snuffed out at tribal council.
After receiving five votes to Jayden's three and the one given to Caroline by himself, his time on Survivor came to an end.
"I've had a target on my back since day one. The majority sorted of thought to maybe pick off the most dangerous threat going forward in the game but I think the tribe shot itself in the foot," a frustrated Nathan revealed to the camera shortly after saying his farewells.

Unfortunately for sport-obsessed builder Tobias, his time on Survivor was cut short after being betrayed by a member of his "cuddle alliance" - Kelli.
After smiling assassin Feras played his hidden immunity idol for himself, the three votes his fellow rebels cast his way fell to the wayside.
Whilst Alex was handed three votes, it was Tobias who had the majority of five, leaving him shell-shocked.
"I didn't see that coming. I thought my place in that tribe was rock solid. They definitely got one over me," a stunned Tobias shared with the cameras after his torch was snuffed.
"I was just in shock. I even left some stuff at camp because I really did not think I was going home," he also shared exclusively with our sister publication TV Week.
In line with their tribe namesake, a handful of rebels (aka the "cuddle alliance") decided to throw an elimination challenge in the hopes of sending home Kelly or Raymond home after the pair started to rub their fellow rebels the wrong way.
But clever Kirby saw an opportunity to blindside bar manager Peta, and with help from her fellow rebels, her plan was executed to a tee, and poor Peta was sent packing after receiving 5 votes to the 4 Kelly and Raymond received.
Her alliance members Alex and Sarah were noticeably stunned to find out they weren't in the majority, with Peta telling her former tribe that the blindside "was nice."
"I'm a little shocked. I don't quite know how to take it," Peta shared with the cameras after her torch was snuffed.
"I don't know if I've been perceived as a threat. It looks like the minorities rose up a little bit and took control."
Despite being just days into the game, an over-eager Jess painted a target on her back as she not only boasted in the Titans tribe that she had orchestrated the blindside against Frankie an episode earlier, but pushed for the vote to go towards Eden in the following tribal council.
After being confronted by Nathan, who was left in the lurch after his BFF Frankie was sent home, and Eden for shopping his name around in camp, her fate was signed and her torch snuffed.
Speaking exclusively with our sister publication TV Week after her onscreen elimination aired, Jess shared that she thought Mark would be one to watch as the game progressed.
"[He] obviously didn't have my back yesterday - he was gunning for me, but he's a very strong player."
She also added that before tribal council she felt confident her friendships would protect her.
"Everything seemed easy and that should have been my first red flag - things are never easy on Survivor."
"[During tribal council] I felt a bit put on the spot but I was really just trying my best to hold my ground, to speak what my truth was, and hope that the tribemates would see value in that over the lies that stirred up."
In the very first tribal council of the season, the Titans tribe fought amongst each other for dominance, some tribemates more covertly than others.
Whilst Frankie and Nathan spearheaded the push to vote professional academic Jess out, cinema area manager Eden decided to take things into his own hands and try to blindside Frankie.
Ultimately, the Titans said hasta la vista baby to Frankie who received 7 votes to the 4 that Jess received.
"Honestly I didn't know what happened. I got a bit blindsided there. I would be lying if I didn't say I was disappointed," Frankie shared shortly after her torch was snuffed.
"I always knew going in that I would appear as a big personality, a big threat, I guess at the end of the day I may have played some people the wrong way."
