It was a week of well-executed blindsides, underdog comebacks falling short, color-filled swaps and shocking medevacs that were not actually medevacs but still ended in shocks. A massive four-pack of Survivor SA, and Ryan has all the action recapped and stan stars dispersed.

Ryan has enjoyed, absorbed, and now thrown stars at (you'll see) the first four hours/three boots of SurvivorSA's super-sized, first-ever returning player season, Return of Outcasts. Who will claim fandom's ulimate stan crown? (2 million rand not included in (figurative) crown.)
