According to the complete Spoiled Survivor document, the red tribe, Vesi, heads to tribal council first in the season 43 premiere. Then the yellow Baka tribe heads to tribal council second. This spoiler was confirmed because the source provided accurate information about the Survivor 43 logo before CBS released it.

If you’re wondering who you should keep an eye out for while watching Survivor Season 43, we have a list of the potential players who make it to the merge. According to the same Spoiled Survivor document, one source believes the final five players come down to Elie, Jesse, Karla, Owen, and Sami. However, another source reports that the final seven players include Elie, Jesse, Karla, Dwight, Sami, Lindsay, and Jay. 

The two sources conflict in the final five, so at this point, we can speculate that the following eight competitors make it to the merge: Elie, Jesse, Karla, Owen, Sami, Dwight, Lindsay, and Jay. 

The potential winner of ‘Survivor’ Season 43 based on spoilers: Elie Scott

Based on the current spoilers, the final three in Survivor Season 43 probably come down to Elie, Jesse, and Karla. Three separate sources confirmed these three people make it very far in the season. However, the winner is more challenging to guess. 

One source believes that Elie wins Survivor Season 43. However, that is not confirmed and is only speculation at this point. The same person also believes that Elie is aligned with Sami pre-merge. Although a few other speculative spoilers point to Sami or Lindsay as the winner, based on all sources, Elie is the most likely. 

Elie Scott is a 31-year-old clinical psychologist from Salt Lake City, Utah. Going into Survivor 43, Elie felt she was a solid contender to win because her secret power is getting individuals to talk about their traumas.

“I plan to play a really social game,” Elie reflected in her Survivor biography clip. “I think of myself a lot like Cirie Fields. She was super flashy — a gangster in an Oprah suit. I think that I am a wolf in a Brenee Brown suit. I’m obsessed with SurvivorSurvivor is not just a competition. It’s a vessel for growth and transformation.”

Survivor Season 43 premieres on CBS and Paramount+ on Sept. 21, 2022, at 8 p.m. ET.
