Survivor's Samantha eliminated after scheming backfired

After two weeks in Samoa, there are 19 contestants left vying for the title of Australian Survivor 2017.

And on Sunday night's episode, there was plenty of tension in the air after the eviction of Samatau's Amy last week.

Her elimination left Pete with a target on his back after he betrayed his alliance with Tara and Locky.

And heading into the week's first challenge, grudges were abundant within team Samatau.

Cracks were also starting to form in Asaga's Henry's yoga teacher facade, with one of his main tribe rivals, Samantha, sparking doubt about his story among the tribe.

The first challenge saw teams thrust into a game that involved balance, trust and concentration.

They had to manoeuvre each of their members across a beam suspended above water.

On the line was a full Australian barbecue with all the fixings; steaks, sausages, prawns, burgers, vegetables, tomato sauce, and even beer.

The challenge forced enemies Tara and Peter into an awkward embrace as they had to cuddle to shift around each other on the beam.

Team Samatau eventually claimed victory, with Ben proving himself a major roadblock for Asaga.
