Several castaways have already been voted off or pulled from Survivor 44. Here are all the contestants that have been eliminated so far in the series.
Survivor 44 tests 18 strangers over 26 days as they fight to outwit, outplay, and outlast each other for the title of Sole Survivor and the million dollar prize.
Traditionally, castaways are only eliminated by voting, but in a particularly brutal season we have already seen several contestants get injured – and one has needed to be medically evacuated.
Here are all the contestants who have been eliminated from Survivor 44 so far.
Who has been voted off Survivor 44?
Not a vote off, but Bruce was the first contestant to be medically evacuated. On the first day of Survivor, Bruce participated in the first challenge of the season, which required contestants to crawl under and over a wooden structure.
But Bruce gashed his head into a wooden pole, bleeding so much that he eventually lost consciousness. While the medical team was able to stabilize Bruce to the point that he was able to rejoin his tribe, later in the day Bruce began to complain of head pain and was medically evacuated.
Maddy was a shocking exit in the first episode, as she was voted out at Tribal Council… but in a very unconventional way.
After the Ratu tribe lost their first challenge, Maddy and several others began to target Brandon as he confessed that he had found both a Hidden Immunity Idol and a fake one.
But Brandon played his Hidden Immunity Idol at that very first vote, negating Maddy and her alliance’s votes, making her the first eliminated contestant.

In the second episode, the Tika tribe seemed to be locked down by a three-person alliance of Helen, Carson, and Sarah, with a numbers advantage over the “older” (they’re in their 30s) tribe mates Carolyn and Yam Yam.
After another devastating loss, Tika was sent to their first tribal where it looked like Carolyn was an easy vote out. However, in a shocking twist it appeared that Carolyn did some maneuvering of her own, bringing over Carson to join her and Yam Yam to vote out Helen 3-2.
Claire received a very dubious distinction in Episode 3 of sitting out three consecutive immunity challenges for the Soka tribe. Naturally, once the tribe lost their first immunity and had to go to tribal council, Claire stood out as a target.
While Claire and Josh were vying to split up the “nerdmance” of Matt and Frannie, Claire played her Shot in the Dark to try and nullify her tribemates’ votes. Unfortunately, the shot came up short and Claire was voted out in a 3-0 vote (Josh had lost his vote at the Summit).
In Episode 4, the Tika tribe got a new member when a swap brought Josh over. The others on Tika seemed to take this as a free vote, as they would all band together to eliminate Josh.
However, Josh had an idol and despite a plan to split the votes between him and Carolyn, Carolyn flipped so that the remaining votes not canceled out by Josh’s idol fell on Sarah. Sarah left, thinking she had a hidden immunity idol in her pocket that could have saved her, but not knowing that it was actually a fake.
