Psychologists will be using "Survivor" 46 as a case study for years. Q became the fourth player in a row to allow himself to get voted out despite having an idol to play. Of the remaining castaways, meanwhile, two clear favorites have emerged.

"Survivor" 46 airs on CBS and Paramount Plus in the U.S. and Global TV in Canada every Wednesday — and viewers abroad can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.

'Survivor' 46 release date and time

► Date and time: "Survivor" 46 airs at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Wednesdays from February 28.
• Australia — Watch on 9Now (FREE)
• U.S.
— Watch on CBS (via Fubo or Paramount Plus)
• Canada — Watch on Global TV
• Watch anywhere — try NordVPN 100% risk-free

Maria and Charlie are Malcolm and Denise no more. Each has recongnized that the other is their greatest threat, though it would have been nice to see them declare war over Chinese takeout and love letters.

When Charlie chose Liz and Kenzie as his dining companions, having won the reward challenge, Maria knew her only shot at staving off elimination was to win immunity... and, sensationally, that's exactly what she did. 

With the No.1 target suddenly safe, it was inexplicable that Q – as in, the guy who's survived the past few episodes by the skin of his teeth – wouldn't play his idol, but he risked it and paid the price. 

Having started with 18 castaways, the toughest reality show of them is now down to five. Who will outwit, outplay and outlast the rest on the gorgeous, indomitable islands of Fiji? They have no choice but to conspire with their enemies, yet only one person can take home the $1 million prize.

The cheaper $5.99/month Essentials plan lets you stream episodes the following day.

Can you watch 'Survivor' season 46 in the U.K.?

The British version of "Survivor" was recently revived in the U.K., which raises hopes that there's a market for the U.S. offshoot of the show. 

However, at the time of writing no plans to release "Survivor" season 46 in the U.K. have been announced, and season 40 only aired on BBC iPlayer recently.

For now, anybody currently abroad in the U.K. from Australia can use one of the best VPN services to access their usual streaming service. We recommend NordVPN thanks to its speed, reliability and trusted security features.
