Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the previous episode of Survivor: Africa, a major twist threw all previous tribal alliances to the four winds. It all began when the six best players, three from each tribe, were sent to see host Jeff Probst, presumably to participate in a Reward Challenge. Instead, the six were forced to switch tribes -- and to form brand-new alliances. Those are the conditions that prevail as the challenge enters its 16th, 17th, and 18th days. The big questions: Will this influx of new blood weaken the previously sturdy Boran tribe, and, conversely, will the feuding Samburuus be "saved" by the presence of their three new members?
