Survivor Season 41 Episode 3 delivered new twists and turns fans haven’t seen yet this season. The beginning of the episode showed Tiffany from the Yase Tribe finding a secret advantage — and her alliance members, Evvie and Liana, also saw the advantage. The advantage stated Tiffany would have to leave camp in the middle of the night and get on a boat to a secret island. And the advantage existed for the other two tribes as well. Brad found it for the Ua Tribe, and Sydney found it for the Luvu Tribe.

Tiffany, Brad, and Sydney all successfully escaped their camps in the middle of the night for their advantage. The advantage stated they’d all have to make a secret choice between a tarp for their tribe or a personal steal-a-vote. If they all chose tarp, they’d all receive tarps. But if they all chose to steal a vote, no one would get to steal a vote. To attain the steal-a-vote advantage, at least one of the three would have to choose the tarp — and, in that case, the tarp chooser would leave empty-handed.

In the end, Brad successfully stole a vote. And he also found another third of the three-way idol introduced in the previous episode. He shared all of his findings and winnings with Shantel, his closest ally in his tribe.

So who got voted off Survivor Season 41 Episode 3? It was Brad on Survivor who was sent packing. While Brad had the steal-a-vote advantage and the potential for a future idol, it’s clear the rest of the Ua Tribe thought he was far too dangerous.

JD might be in trouble in coming votes if the Ua Tribe heads back to Tribal Council. Shantel and Ricard caught wind that JD had a secret advantage from before, and to regain their trust, JD handed over the advantage to Shantel. This seemed to save him over Brad this time. But Shantel and Ricard appear to have the strongest duo alliance in the tribe so far.

Brad marks the second member of the Ua Tribe sent home.

Who has been voted off ‘Survivor’ so far?

Who has been voted off Survivor so far? Survivor Season 41 spoilers of the past note David from the Yase Tribe was voted out during episode 2. And Eric from the Yase Tribe, as well as Sara from the Ua Tribe, were sent home during the first episode of the season. The Luvu Tribe remains untouched.

As for what’s next, fans will have to wait and see what happens with Brad’s portion of the hidden immunity idol. Xander still has his third of the idol. But for him to vote at Tribal Council, the other two parts must be found, and the associated phrases have to be uttered when all the tribes are together ahead of the challenge. With Brad out of the game, we imagine his part of the idol will go back into play. Another one of his tribe members will likely have to find it again and utter his phrase.

Survivor Season 41 airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST on CBS and Paramount+.
