Drama, deception, and disaster struck the celebrity cast of Peacock’s hit reality competition The Traitors this week. As the betrayals and backstabbing ramped up in episode 4, both fans and contestants were left shocked and outraged by the latest explosive developments.
Poisoned Chalice Sparks Uproar
In a controversial challenge that asked contestants to “poison” their fellow players by spiking one of ten chalices, chaos soon erupted. Contestant and Survivor legend Parvati Shallow was tasked by the Traitors with choosing someone to eliminate and delivered a lethal dose to reality star Kate Chastain. This devious move outraged the Faithful players and brought tensions among the cast to new heights:
“I cannot believe Parvati would stoop so low to poison one of our own. Her ruthless gameplay proves she cannot be trusted!” raged Brandi Glanville of The Real Housewives.
Many Faithful Alliance members have turned against Parvati as a result, convinced her willingness to eliminate Kate marks her as a dangerous Traitor.

The Traitors, meanwhile, were delighted at the chaos Parvati’s move caused among the other players. Though Parvati maintains her innocence as a Faithful, Cody and Stephenie believe she has proven herself a strong – if unpredictable – ally in their mission to deceive and defeat the Faithfuls.
Double Tribal Council Blindsides Housewives
In a devastating double elimination, Sheree Whitfield and Phaedra Parks of The Real Housewives franchise found themselves banished from the competition this week. Still reeling from the poisoned chalice incident, tensions exploded when several players confronted Parvati over her willingness to “kill” Kate.
A shouting match ensued between Parvati and Phaedra, ending with Phaedra accusing Parvati of being universally disliked in the game. This bitter exchange likely contributed to both reality stars ultimately being sent home in a dramatic double eviction ceremony.
“Losing two of our strongest players back-to-back puts the Faithful Alliance at a huge disadvantage,” a teary-eyed Brandi admitted after the vote. “At this point, it seems the Traitors are running the show here.”
What’s Next for the Celebrity Contestants?
At just past the halfway point of the competition, The Traitors has cemented itself as Peacock’s #1 unscripted series. Viewership continues to rise week after week, with a 75% increase in viewership from season 1. But with the Traitors potentially outnumbering the remaining Faithful players, how much longer can the celebrities withstand the building tension and erupting drama?
Our celebrity contestants face impossible decisions in the episodes ahead. Do they continue placing their trust in suspected Traitors like Parvati in hopes of gaining useful intel? Or has the time come to make bold power moves against dangerous players? No one is safe from suspicion or elimination in this psychological war of secrets and lies.
One thing remains certain – with over $250k in prize money at stake, the bloodthirsty Traitors will stop at nothing to achieve victory. Expect even more controversial gameplay, personal attacks, and ruthless backstabbing before a winner is crowned.
Stay tuned as the mystery and drama continues to unfold on the smash hit series The Traitors, streaming now on Peacock!
