The First Exile
: Ep 1 -
The new season of Survivor starts off with a bang, with Jeff revealing that the first reward challenge would take place before the contestants got to talk to their teammates at all. Some players are dissapointed about the division of the four tribes, which are separated by gender and age. Wearing light green, the Viveros Tribe consists of the four younger men -- Aras Baskauskas, Austin Carty, Bobby "Bob Dawg" Mason and Nick Stanbury. Wearing light blue, the Bayoneta Tribe consists of the four younger women -- Danielle DiLorenzo, Misty Giles, Courtney Marit and Sally Schumann. Wearing orange, the La Mina Tribe consists of the four older men -- Dan Barry, Terry Deitz, Bruce Kanegai and Shane Powers. Wearing purple, the Casaya Tribe consists of the four older women -- Cirie Fields, Melinda Hyder, Ruth Marie Milliman and Tina Scheer. Able to put their feelings aside, the tribes attempt the challenge, which requires one person from each tribe to run into the jungle on Exile Island and find an amulet hidden in a skull. Bayoneta's runner is left empty-handed, forcing the group to choose which woman will be left behind on the island, and a reluctant Misty loses a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors and is forced to stay behind until the Immunity Challenge. Later, the four tribes build their camps, but all run into problems, either between contestants or with nature. Misty copes well on Exile Island, all the while trying to find a hidden Immunity Idol. At the Immunity challenge, Misty regroups with the other younger women of Bayoneta and helps them pull off a win, with both men's tribes close behind, forcing Casaya to report to Tribal Council. Once there, Tina, the most eccentric of the bunch, is voted out unanimously.
