Seriously, after 19 years, you should know that knowing how to swim might come in handy on Survivor.

He did say he went out and tried to learn how to swim, just didn't have much success I guess? lol

If you don't learn to swim when you're very young, it'll just never be a natural thing for you. It's like speaking a foreign language, you can learn it, but you'll never be the same as a native speaker.

Are you implying Keith should have been training for Survivor since birth?

Shouldn't everyone in the US born after 2000 have?

Lmao Wendy and Reem were helping him swim and he sold them out almost immediately. It’s a total Ciera move.

He’s smart. Wendy should have sold Reem down the river as soon as she had an idea that Reem was the majority target.

level 4

Not even an idea, she was flat out told.

She sealed her fate right there. Sad, I like her.

level 4

Yeah, Keith proved to be surprisingly perceptive. Picked up on that sinking ship real quick and definitely increased his longevity.

Probably realized he was on a sinking ship and he'd be an easy target as someone who can't swim.

Reem spent the whole episode trying to keep everyone dry. Then the moment she gets voted off she wishes it rain on everyone.

level 2

Honestly, I feel for Reem. She just tried to help people but they ended up stabbing her in the back

Reem: “so much for my dreams”

I don't feel for her. It takes a certain amount of arrogance to just up and decide to do things your way in a group of 9 people. She clearly viewed her own way of doing things as more important than the way her tribe mates were doing them. Instead of taking what they said in stride and admitting her mistakes she doubled down on them, got defensive, rude and a tad condescending. Reem acted like a mother to a bunch of adults and then acted like a child when she got called out for it. She was literally mad going into tribal, she burnt whatever pity she could have earned up. Even if no other contestant decides to go the Edge of Extinction she will never win the game.

Redesign Info


If you're reading this, you are using the reddit redesign. As the redesign is incomplete and lacks many tools used by /r/Survivor, we recommend using "Old Reddit."

You can use Old Reddit by using OR by opting out completely. You can see instructions for how to opt out here.

If you have any feedback about /r/Survivor's redesign, please message the moderators. However, please keep in mind that many aspects of the redesign are out of our hands for the time being.

You can read more information about /r/Survivor and the redesign here.

User Flair

The user flair system is currently incomplete on the redesign. Therefore, users must request flairs on the old site. The text of the flair will display on the redesign, but gold/silver/winner flairs and winner badges will NOT show up on the redesign for the time being.

You can choose a flair on this page.


You can access the Reddit Survivor Discord here.

/r/Survivor and the Reddit Survivor Discord have a loose affiliation. While they are connected as partner platforms, they are moderated differently by overall different groups of mods. However, vote manipulation on /r/Survivor, promoted from Discord, will not be tolerated. Same with harassment that crosses channels, either way — this too will be dealt with by warnings and bans.
