The traitors Fans have been shocked and delighted by the reality show’s latest developments.
In the BBC One series, which ends on Thursday evening (December 22), the contestants are divided into ‘traitor’ and ‘loyalty’.
Believers are left in the dark about the identities of their enemies, and the traitors choose which players to assassinate as the series continues. The believers, meanwhile, choose who they want to banish.
When the contest, hosted by Claudia Winkleman, ends, the few remaining players will share the prize pool (built up through a series of challenges throughout the show) if they are all loyal.
But if there’s still an undetected traitor among them, the traitor walks away with all the money.
Warning: Spoilers ahead for Tuesday, December 20th episode of the show.
With just eight players left from the 22 who started last night’s game in a row, the group was nervous after Fay’s departure.
Turning on his fellow traitor Amanda, Wilf told the faithful, “I’m not sure about Amanda, she fell [former contestant] Theo likes a piece of shit.”
At the round table, he was the one who mentioned Amanda’s name, saying, “Amanda was on my mind about the Theo thing.”
Since the votes were even between Amanda and Maddie, Wilf made the final vote to get rid of Amanda, just like he had done with former traitor Alyssa.
Amanda then told her amazed competitors, “I’m getting emotional now and I’m not crying. It was amazing. I will take a lot from you all and we will see each other again. You were all absolutely brilliant and I will take a lot back to Wales with me. I’m a traitor, folks.”
Later, Wilf was given the chance to recruit another traitor who would have to accept his invitation or be assassinated. He’s settled on Kieran – but we’ll have to wait until tonight’s episode to see if he accepts.
