Rob Mariano still got it and fans stan!

The old school player who got voted off and arrived at the Edge of Extinction went into beast mode during the fire token search. 'Survivor: Winners at War' Season 40 returned for an all-new episode on Wednesday night and a lot went down. We said goodbye to the first castaway to leave Edge of Extinction (EoE). 

Sandra Diaz didn't want to work hard and complete challenges to survive at EoE for a chance to get back in the game. So, the two-time winner decided to raise the flag and head home. That left Natalie, Dani, Rob Mariano, Amber Mariano, Tyson, Ethan and Parvati Shallow remaining in the Edge of Extinction. 

The next day, the group gets a clue that reveals there are four fire tokens hidden on the top of the mountain. Though Rob runs up the mountain ahead of everyone else, it was Tyson who found the first token, or so we thought. 

When no one else was able to find the other three fire tokens, Rob admits to the camera that he snagged the three fire tokens before anyone else could find them. But he lies to the rest of the gang affirming he didn't find a single idol. Luckily when everyone was frisking Rob's fire tokens didn't fall out. This puts Rob in advantage. He might be the contestant to enter the game again from the Edge of Extinction. 



 

"Three out of four, we're in the majors. I'm batting 750. I'm the best that's ever played," Rob admitted to the camera. Rob might be in EoE, but he's playing as hard as he can to get back in the game. 

Taking to Twitter post the episode, fans called Rob savage for his little lie. "BOSTON. ROB. YOU. SAVAGE. 3/4, batting 750, and this is why he’s the 'best that’s ever played' holy cow #Survivor," a fan wrote. 

"The real savage part is Rob finding three tokens and not sharing any with his wife. #Survivor," a fan shared. While another wrote, "I'm so grateful we got this scene. @BostonRob IS the best that's ever played. Can't wait to see what comes of those fire tokens. I'm betting he doesn't buy peanut butter with them." 

"BOSTON ROB STILL GOT IT THOUGH! Dude went into beast mode on the fire token search. Wonder if he’s gonna tell Amber?" a fan wrote. "Boston Rob is so good at being sneaky OMG that fire token debacle was amazing to watch #Survivor." 

"This #survivor season I was wondering why Rob was still here. This fire tokens snag reminded me why. What a sneaky guy," a fan added.
