The 'tight five' turn on each other

Old Khangkhaw alliances broke tonight at Tribal Council with the ‘tight five’ turning on each other snuffing Brad Norris, the 27 year old teacher originally from Nelson’s torch.

It became clear to Matt following the Tribe swap that Tess and Brad’s alliance had grown stronger than the original ‘tight five’ and a big move needed to be made.

After Eve took out the Individual Immunity win, it was clear all votes would be targeted at an old Chani Member and Dave was the number one target. Wanting to protect his childhood best friend, Matt hatched a plan to blindside Brad and get him out of the game.

At Tribal Council it was clear Brad didn’t see the votes coming, chatting with Matt Chisholm about the people and amazing friends he trusted to help get him through the game. When the votes were read out it was a close battle with vote for vote going against Brad and Dave until Brad had five against him - making him the ninth person voted out of Survivor New Zealand.

Reflecting on his time in the game Brad said: "I went in with a focus on being myself, keeping morals and dignity in tack as much as possible, and playing the game of Survivor when needed and while I am so gutted to have been voted out, I am stoked to have stayed true to myself and made the people I care and who care about me, proud.

"Being completely blindsided is in a way a huge backhanded compliment and I knew if I went on the island being me, I would have a massive target on my back. I had big plans in place in the coming days, but a few of the others played me first."

Brad became the second member of the Jury and will be one of the eliminated castaways who will ultimately decide who is the worthy winner of the title of New Zealand’s Sole Survivor.
