The Juror Removal was a twist introduced in Survivor: Kaôh Rōng. It allows one player to "eliminate" a member of the jury of their choice.

Overview

The juror removal twist is a power given to one player to remove from the jury someone that they believe would not vote for them at the Final Tribal Council.

According to host Jeff Probst, production had been talking about adding the juror removal twist for many years, but "...It just felt too soon to do it seven years ago, so we waited. And waited. And I think the timing was right.(...) Even though it ultimately did not have an impact on the vote, the idea is a fun one, as it gives players in the game an unusual bit of power."[1]

History

Survivor: Kaôh Rōng

On Day 38, a Reward Challenge was held with the Final Three where the winner would have the power to prevent a jury member of their choice from taking part at the Final Tribal Council. After winning the challenge, Michele Fitzgerald considered eliminating Joe del Campo for his unfaltering loyalty to Aubry Bracco, Neal Gottlieb for his loyalty to Aubry and persuasiveness, or Scot Pollard for being the victim of Tai Trang's biggest move in the game. At Tribal Council, Michele chose to vote Neal out of the jury. This was proven a correct choice, since it was revealed later that Neal would have voted for Aubry to win the game.[2] At the Final Tribal Council, Michele was declared the Sole Survivor in a 5-2-0 vote.
