Will a Showmance emerge soon? Some fans seem to think so
Shows rarely occur in Survivor, at least not as they tend to do in Big Brother. But every now and then, a couple can’t hide their attraction to each other as they brave the elements on a deserted Fijian beach. And, according to potential spoilers for Survivor Season 41, a staging could occur in the next episodes.
[Spoiler alert: This article may contain spoilers from Survivor Season 41.]
A story of showmances in ‘Survivor’
The very first Survivor showmance took place in season 1. Greg Buis and Colleen Haskell met in Borneo when they were placed in the same tribe. However, the two were never serious and insisted that they were just friends.
Another notable showmance is Jaime Dugan and Erik Huffman of Survivor: China, who are now married with children. And in Survivor: Micronesia, two showmances emerged that were all about strategy. James Clement and Parvati Shallow have teamed up, and Amanda Kimmel and Ozzy Lusth have reunited. However, neither of these relationships lasted in the real world.
The most iconic and the most memorable Survivor showmance is Boston Rob and Amber. The two castaways competed in separate seasons before being chosen for Survivor: All-Stars. They were placed in the same tribe and allied from day one. Rob and Amber were never sure the other was playing them, but neither could deny their connection. Rob proposed to Amber during the Survivor reunion show, and they have been married with children ever since.
Spoilers indicate Alex is part of a showmance in ‘Survivor’ Season 41
According to a Reddit thread, a Reddit user, who has since deleted his post, claimed to know of several spoilers on Survivor Season 41. Fortunately, another user recorded their spoilers and posted them in another Reddit thread that ticks all the correct spoilers. So far, many of their predictions have come true.
The original Reddit user said, “Alex is in a showmance, and I believe the one he convinces to perform poorly is his showmance.” For more context, the user previously said, “Alex convinces someone to misplay one of the biggest perks the game has seen (I don’t think it’s a divine idol but something else). This could be the advantage that Liana has found.
With these spoilers in mind, many fans believe Alex and Liana will become a showmance in Survivor Season 41. A Reddit user said, “It’s pretty obvious Alex’s directing is with Liana cuz [sic] Evvie doesn’t swing like that, and Tiffany is married and old enough to be her mother.
Another Reddit user speculated, “My theory is that in order to save himself, Xander creates a fake scene with Liana, telling her that he loves her and stuff. They become a tight pair, and then Xander is able to. Tricking her into using it on Evvie (he tells her he gave it to them?) This causes Liana to come home that night with the badly played advantage.
According to spoilers, how far does Xander go in season 41 of “Survivor”?
While nothing is certain about a staging between Alex and Liana, many fans agree that the spoilers about Alex’s placement in Survivor Season 41 is correct.
According to Reddit spoilers, Alex ranks in the bottom three, but he doesn’t get any votes in the last tribal council. Alex is going to potentially drive a lot of people crazy when he gets another competitor to abuse his advantage. And spoilers indicate he’ll gain a lot of individual immunities to get far in the game. Of course, none of these spoilers will be confirmed until the finale.
Survivor Season 41 airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
