We are heading into episode 12 of Survivor 40: Winners at War, and it’s still anyone’s game. Last week, Sophie Clarke was blindsided, and some fans were outraged. Let’s take a look at the fan theories that could happen in week 12, and those that probably won’t. Fans know there’s a war brewing between Tony Vlachos and Kim Spradlin-Wolfe.

Who will be sent to Edge of Extinction on episode 12 of ‘Survivor 40: Winners at War?’

Many fans are positive that Kim is the castaway heading to the Edge of Extinction on tonight’s episode. 

“Kim and Tony go to war,” one fan wrote on Reddit. “Unfortunately, I think it is Kim tonight (huge threat, no solid allies sans Denise). Kudos to her for making it to the Final 8 — and one of the last four on Dakal 1.0 — when she was on the bottom during the pre-merge.”

Others agree that the preview might show Sarah and Tony fighting to throw off fans from the truth that Kim is the one voted out.

“I think this is going to be an episode where the cards are dealt, and things don’t look good for Kim at all,” another fan added. “Tony and Sarah’s fight was a sideshow to make it look like there’s an alternate boot option. The reality is that Kim goes, and it’s a straightforward vote.”

A few fans suspect Tony Vlachos gets blindsided on ‘Survivor 40: Winners at War’ Episode 12

“Tony gets blindsided by Kim and Sarah, with an idol in his pocket,” one Redditor wrote. 

Most fans do not believe Tony is voted out, but a few get on board with the idea.

“I’m 100% expecting Sarah to betray Tony, and do a fake shocked face after the vote to get his fire tokens,” another fan added. “She did it once before with the FFGCNSITSDT’s legacy advantage, and it’s turning into a habit. Call it robbery (or civil forfeiture).”

However, other fans comment that there is “no way Tony goes home with an idol in his pocket. He knows what’s going on.”

Fans unique theories for episode 13 of ‘Survivor 40: Winners at War’

“Tony makes up more fake extortion advantages to make everyone give him their fire tokens,” added another Redditor. “He buys a giant tarp to disguise his spy treehouse.”

Although it seems like a ridiculous theory, Tony did acquire those fire tokens rather quickly during the last episode.

“While Tony is up in the tree, they show Nick climbing down from the top of the tree,” a viewer commented. “He sneaks into the frame over Tony’s shoulder and says ‘I’m a vampire.'”

From the previews, we know that Tony creates a “spy shack” in a tall tree. Fans think it would be hysterical if Nick Wilson were up in the tree first. 

We’ll find out tonight if any of these fan theories are correct.

Survivor 40: Winners at War airs on CBS at 8 p.m. EST on Wednesday evenings.
