We are going to see a lot of familiar faces on the Survivor Game Changers 2017 premiere tonight, as Jeff Probst and producers are bringing back some castaways on Survivor Season 34 that helped change the game as we know it. I think Survivor 2017 is going to be very intense, as we have people that have been there, done it before and know the moves that need to be done to become the winner of Survivor Season 34. Plus, there will be new twists thrown at them, so they always need to be ready for something new! Check it out with us tonight during our Survivor Game Changers 2017 Live Recap and see who went home on Survivor Game Changers 2017 tonight!
I am very excited for tonight’s premiere, as this should be interesting to watch some of the best players on Survivor to come back and compete. We have winners in the mix and we have Survivor favorites that may have been voted off (or medically evacuated) way too early! Now they will all be taking each other on and this is going to be a very intense season!
Our live recap is below, so follow along with Survivor Season 34 tonight right here!

The castaways are on a boat and making their way to the location with Jeff Probst. We have some big names in the group, as we have the only two-time winner of Survivor in Sandra. We also have Tony and JT, both winners also! They have all been split into two tribes, Mana and Nuku. Here is a breakdown of the tribes:
- Mana – Michaela Bradshaw, Aubry Bracco, Sandra Diaz-Twine, Ciera Eastin, Malcolm Freberg, Hali Ford, Caleb Reynolds, Troyzan Robertson, Jeff Varner and Tony Vlachos
- Nuku – Oscar “Ozzy” Lusth, Cirie Fields, James “J.T” Thomas, Debbie Wanner, Andrea Boehlke, Tai Trang, Brad Culpepper, Sarah Lacina, Sierra Dawn-Thomas and Zeke Smith
From there, the boat is filled with supplies and their rafts are attached to the boat. This is how they did it on Season 1, so gather as many supplies as you can and head out to your camp with the map provided. With a twist, out in the middle of the water, there is a big tool kit underneath the water with a rope. First member of either tribe to swim out and get the kit, wins it for their tribe. Apparently no one can compete with Ozzy and his swimming, as he is the only one that heads out there to get it!
There is a lot of chaos and scrambling, as Tai jumps off the boat and the chicken crate falls on him. Caleb eventually heads out to try for the toolkit, but it is too late and Ozzy has a huge lead and gets it for the Nuku Tribe, who also got the chickens. We also saw Sierra pick up a Game Advantage envelope in all the supplies, which no one saw her. The tribes are on their rafts and heading to their camps on Survivor Game Changers 2017!
The castaways are getting to camp and nothing but love for now. On the Mana Tribe, Michaela said she is going to schmooze everyone and try to play nice with everyone. Within seconds, Tony runs off and said he is looking for an idol! He thought they would all chase him, but no one does. Eventually Caleb and Sandra go after him and see he was just trying to stir up paranoia. It definitely worked, as they are all anxious at camp!
Over on the Nuku Tribe, Zeke is loving being there and loving his tribe. Sarah is a cop and knows someone will try to make a move, so then she will be the assassin and take them out. Sierra looks at her advantage, which is the Legacy Advantage. It allows for immunity, but must be used when there are 13 people left or 6 people left. If voted out before using it, they have to will it to someone. Sierra then talks with Brad about Ozzy, so then she goes to him and tries to make plans. He said of everyone, he does not trust Cirie and he wants to be the King of Blindsides this season!
Cirie was nervous seeing Ozzy on the same tribe as her. She talks with him and said she wants a clean slate and he agrees. Ozzy talks with Tai and said Cirie was just going along with the others, so he can’t hold it against her. However, he thinks Cirie is not a good physical player and would need to go. Now Cirie talks with Tai and he is a terrible liar, so she knows Ozzy still has bad blood for her.
Over on Mana, Tony goes to get water and decides to build a spy bunker! He digs in the ground by the water pump, but Troyzan comes up and catches him, but never calls him out on it. However, Troyzan goes out and tells the others. They start talking and want Tony gone, but then talk about Caleb being close with Tony already and maybe get rid of him instead. It is Ciera leading the charge, so they see this and talk about getting rid of her!
Our first look at Jeff Probst! For this challenge, they will race to a raft and paddle to a platform. One person will swim out for a set of keys. Then they will work through some obstacles to get to shore. They will dig up two bags of puzzle pieces. They will then use the keys to unlock a third bag of puzzle pieces. Use the pieces to form a puzzle. First one done with puzzle and raise their flag will win immunity and flint!
Jeff also informs the castaways that things will be changing with votes at Tribal. If there is a tie, they will not revote. Instead, they will go immediately to the tiebreaker and have an open discussion. If they can unanimously decide to vote one out, then that person is eliminated. If not, the nominees are safe and the people voting will draw rocks and one of them will be voted off! This stops them from splitting the vote to flush out idols, so a big change here!
For the challenge, we see Nuku Tribe get off to an early lead with Ozzy and his swimming. Then Mana catches up with the keys. It is pretty even, as they are both working on the puzzles. We see Zeke & Cirie for Nuku and Ciera & Sandra for Mana. It goes back and forth, but Zeke & Cirie get the puzzle done and they win immunity on Survivor Game Changers 2017!
Malcolm talks and said that Tony is a snake, but they need to keep the tribe strong for now. They all get to talking and they said that Ciera is the only one throwing out names. They decide to tell Ciera that it is Michaela going home instead. So, Michaela knows it is Ciera, but they told her that it was Michaela going home and now Michaela is upset about her name being thrown out there and is acting weird about it. She is not containing herself and the others notice how hot she got because of this. Now the focus could switch to Michaela based on her reaction and having a short fuse.
Tony said things are so different this time around. Aubry said they are trying to figure out how they are and if they are different from what you saw on television. Michaela said it is Game Changers and not an easy vote at the beginning. Jeff said that Sandra would be the obvious vote and she said she would be the smart person to bring to the end, as would they vote to give her another $1 million? Paranoia is strong, as it is between Ciera and Michaela, but it is time for the vote!
Jeff tallies the votes and no idol is played, so time for the votes! They ar for Michaela, Ciera, Ciera, Ciera, Ciera, Ciera and Ciera! That means Ciera is the first person voted off Survivor Game Changers 2017 and it is a blindside for her!
At Mana, things went smoothly the night before, but Tony said that is not how things work on this show. He wants to start mixing things up, so he talks with Aubry about an alliance and bringing in Caleb, Malcolm and Sandra. He wants to keep the bigger shields around him, so he mentions them. Tony talks with Sandra and she is fine with it, as long as she is sticking around.
Over on Nuku, Tai is already taking over the chicken duty. Tai is giving them food and corn, which JT and Sarah do not seem happy about. JT thinks the chickens will be the downfall for Tai.
It is the evening and Tony heads back to build his spy bunker. As he is building it, Troyzan and Sandra come over and start chatting. Troyzan talks about Tony not being a threat and no one would align with him, which Sandra said you never know. Tony comes out of hiding and asks them what’s up and they deny anything, but now Tony thinks Sandra is not working with him and his paranoia is taking over. Sandra is over it and thinks he needs to go also, as he doesn’t trust her.
On Nuku, Cirie sees Ozzy and JT are very close, so she does not think that is good for her. She said she has to start aligning with people. She talks with Sarah and Zeke and they both say they will work with her, yet they both aren’t really too sure about that. Cirie talks with Debbie and said she is scrambling and she should calm down. Cirie talks about taking out a guy, if they lose. However, Debbie thinks it was all BS from Cirie.
Over on Mana, Sandra talks with Hali, Varner and Troyzan and thinks Tony is a threat and he wants to control things. She is the Queen and this is her game, so she starts an alliance and adds Michaela into the mix. They all seem on board and Varner is just amazed she formed an alliance of five in like 15 minutes! Well, she won twice, so this is nothing new to her!
We now see Tony talking with Aubry and he said he is done with Sandra, so now they have to get another person in their alliance. He talks with Malcolm and he wants strength, so he is down with Sandra going home. Caleb is down with strength too. He does not trust either of them, but trusts Tony more than Sandra.
For this challenge, six members from each tribe will race out to the ocean and over a balance beam. They will climb over a cage and pull out a very long and very heavy snake. They will bring back the snake and set it on the beam. They will then get bags of tiles, which will give a combination to unlock rings. They will use the rings to toss on eight oars. The oars spell IMMUNITY, so the first tribe to spell immunity on Survivor Game Changers 2017 will win immunity and a fishing kit and oar and raft!
The tribes are pretty even getting out to the cage. However, Nuku gets the snake released quickly and they are working well together. Mana is not and Varner is just barking out orders. Nuku gets the snake back and Debbie is working on the combination. Mana keeps falling off the beam with the snake and they just keep falling further and further behind, as Sierra and JT are tossing rings now. Mana finally gets snake back and Malcolm is working on the combination and he gets it. Malcolm is tossing rings and he caught them up, as it is now a 6-4 lead for Nuku! Malcolm gets it tied 6-6, but then JT gets the final two and wins it again for Nuku! Michaela was asking Malcolm to step in for him for the toss, but he said no. Michaela is not happy with this one, as they lost again!
This should be interesting, as it will be a battle between Tony and Sandra! Michaela is not happy to lose, again. Sandra and her alliance say that Tony has to go, but he is good at finding alliances and want to split the votes. They want to get Caleb and Malcolm on their side. They talk to Caleb, but Tony interrupts and they say it is Aubry going home. Tony talks to Caleb and said Sandra needs to go. They think they can get Michaela to flip, as she hates losing, so get rid of the weakest link. Caleb goes to Varner and Michaela about getting rid of Sandra instead. Caleb said Sandra is the weakest from both challenges, but she never even did anything in the last challenge. These “strong players” lost it for them, so send them home!
Tony said they have lost two challenges and need to stay strong to win in the future. Michaela said she is a physically strong player and that is why she is there, so they need to stay strong. Sandra said she is worried now. Troyzan talks about half the paranoia would be gone after tonight. Tony said he is not scamming anyone, which Varner, Malcolm and Caleb all agree. Varner said they are a round hole and it is time to get rid of the square peg. Time is up and the vote is happening!
Jeff tallies the votes and no idol is played, so here we go! The votes are: Aubry, Tony, Aubry, Tony, Tony, Tony and Tony! That means Tony has been eliminated and he said they are sheep being lead to their slaughter! Sandra said that is what he gets for going against her!
