Last week on The Traitors, we saw the return of Kate Chastain while the house was running rampant pointing figures at one another. The second season has eliminated eight people, with Tamra Judge and Janelle being the latest victims. Does Pete's plan come into place? or will the traitors continue their recent trend of taking the faithfuls out one by one? We share everything that went down in episode six.
Last week, Nielsen reported that The Traitors became the #1 unscripted series in the US across all streaming platforms. The streaming numbers are up 75% from season 1, which debuted a year ago. These numbers don't shock me as the scope of social media is at an all-time high when the show airs and the days that follow have become a massive water cooler conversation.
Who did the traitors "murder" from the show?
With his continued persistence, Dan decided to pull through and "murder" Bergie. This ultimately turned out bad for the the traitors because Bergie was the holder of the shield, meaning that he will not be going home. With Pete's plan working, he can now pinpoint the traitors down to three people: Dan, Pavarti, and CT. So this week nobody was "murdered."
How much money was added to the pot?
The next competition could add $25,000 to the pot. The group had to launch a cannonball to win the prize. They had to find, collect, and carry the catapult pieces along the way to successfully launch the cannon. Once they collected all the pieces, they shoot off the cannon in 60 minutes and win the prize. Along the way, they could collect an ammo box, and ONE would have a shield inside them. However, the only way to get the shield was if they completed the mission.
After a hard-fought battle, the team was able to secure and launch the cannonball and add $25,000 to the pot (Total at $95,550). Sandra, Pavarti, Peter, Sheree, and Trishelle all competed for the shield with Sheree winning and being safe from being murdered.
Who was eliminated from The Traitors?
So Dan attempted to pin the traitor on Phaedra, which somewhat backfired on him. It led to a massive pointing finger attack amongst the group, with Pavarti still taking some heat from Peter. Even with his last attempt to sway the vote, Dan Gheesling's time in the house is over. Of course, he revealed that he was IN FACT a traitor, and everyone was HAPPY.
The Traitors episode 6 is available on Peacock.
