Khangkhaw burns a Wildcard

In a shock blindside, The Hits Wildcard Kaysha Whakarau is Survivor New Zealand’s fourth eliminated castaway, and first casualty from the Khangkhaw tribe.

Originally from the Horowhenua, the 24 year old social worker proved how empathetic she was right up to the last minute - fighting for Dylan’s place in the cut-throat competition, only to find her torch was the one snuffed.

Tonight’s Immunity Challenge made it clear that Khangkhaw was ready to go to Tribal Council, with the "tight five" alliance throwing the Chain Reaction Challenge.

Once back at the lakeside, Kaysha spent the afternoon scrambling - throwing Adam’s name on the chopping block and encouraging Dylan to search for an Immunity Idol.

At Tribal Council, it was clear Adam and many others in the Tribe wanted Dylan gone, creating a heated back and forth, with host Matt Chisholm commenting that Dylan was really copping it.

Kaysha made it clear she felt for Dylan, breaking down in tears saying she doesn’t like people feeling upset or that the world (or whole Tribe in Dylan’s case) is against them.

When it came to the vote’s being read, a shocked Kaysha discovered all of the tight five’s votes were against her - enough to be eliminated from the game.

Reflecting on her elimination, Kaysha says: "Survivor is the toughest game in the world. I had the ability to go far and win, however Khangkhaw were one step ahead. They saw me as a threat in all areas of the game and with that came the biggest blindside. I went out saving my friend, I went out blindsided. No better way to end the game!"

With a twist in a game coming up next week that will throw everyone into chaos, who will be next to leave the lake on Survivor New Zealand?
