Simmering family rivalries come to the forefront during an intense tribal challenge. One castaway's decision on what to do for the rest of the game has a tremendous impact on the remaining contestants.
The first duel is held at Redemption Island with the participants trying to do well enough to stay in the game. Despite earlier declarations, one tribe member reverts back to the attitude and form seen in the past.
Things seem to be looking up for Kucha - their winning streak looks to be restarting, as they steal the Reward Challenge from right under Ogakor's noses, and they create a new kind of food: Kucha corn, made by heating up chicken feed. But the same fire that cheers the Kucha tribe up turns suddenly volatile when tribe "leader" Michael passes out from smoke inhalation, and falls face-first into the camp fire. Mike is flown away to a hospital via helicopter, leaving his tribemates behind. Meanwhile, the Ogakor tribe, given the bittersweet gift of Mike's elimination, worry about what has happened when they receive treemail announcing the accident. Next week the tribes will merge on equal ground - who will come out prosperous?moreless
Jerri wakes up to find smoke covering camp from the fire, but has other things on her mind - just recently she has realized that Colby has an alliance with Tina & Keith. Jerri talks with Amber and tells her the importance in getting Colby back on their side. At Kucha camp, Kimmi becomes more and more depressed because no one respects that she's a vegetarian. She and Alicia get into a fight over the chickens and begin shouting. Later, Kucha wins the reward challenge, getting soaps and shampoos, and the other tribe members bathe a reluctant Kimmi in the dirty river water. At the Immunity Challenge, Ogakor breaks their losing streak, sending Kucha to Tribal Council, where Kimmi receives six votes and is voted out of the game. The tribe has spoken.moreless
Keith & Tina begin the day trying to go fishing until Jerri takes the boat instead. This frustrates Keith because he wanted to strategize with Tina. Both Tina & Keith begin to feel in trouble because of Jerri's comments last night that she felt close with Amber, Mitchell & Colby. At Reward, Kucha pulls off the victory. A forest fire is creeping closer to Ogakor camp as the survivors get worried. Tina admits to both Colby & Mitchell that she feels Jerri is bossy. Kimmi gets mad when everyone expresses they want some meat. Jerri joins Colby in his pig hunting to try and win his allegiance. Mike finally catches a pig and everyone enjoys a great lunch. At Immunity, Kucha pulls off another victory. At Tribal Council, we have our first tie between Mitchell & Keith. Because Mitchell has more votes from previous tribal councils, he is voted out.moreless
Mike becomes obsessed in hunting for a pig for his tribe but Jeff thinks that Mike's an idiot. At the Reward Challenge, Ogakor won by wining Fish Bait. Jerri, Amber & Mitchell went fishing and ended up catching fish for their tribe. At Kucha, everyone begins calling Rodger "Kentucky Joe". Rodger finds a heart shaped stone and gives it to Elisabeth so she can give it to her boyfriend back home. Jeff & Alicia make an alliance and add that Nick should not feel safe and that he's way too confident. Back at Ogakor, Jerri & Colby continue to get closer when Jerri spends the day massaging Colby's back. Keith becomes suspicious by there attraction and says he would vote out Colby. At Immunity, Maralyn keeps falling down which helps Kucha wins there 2nd straight Immunity. Keith asked Tina & Colby to vote with him to vote out Mitchell. At Tribal Council, Mitchell receives 1 vote, Jerri receives 1 vote, and Maralyn receives 5 votes and is voted out.moreless
By Day 4, the separation from food really starts to take a toll on some of the contestants. No food is offered at the Reward Challenge, where Rodger faces his fears and jumps off a cliff only to have his tribe lose, but everyone is bound to get some nutrition with the Immunity Challenge. Unfortunately, the food supplied - cow brains, beetles, and worms - isn't what the castaways are hoping for, and Tina can't stomach it, giving Kucha, led by vegetarian Kimmi, Immunity from Tribal Council, which is exactly where Ogakor is forced to go. At the vote, Jerri's suspicions that Kel has been eating a secret stash of beef jerky seems to be enough to get him kicked off, as Kel becomes the second Outback competitor to get his torch snuffed.moreless
Survivor is back, and this time the 16 American contestants will be battling it out in The Australian Outback for 42 days, all vying for the grand prize of $1million. At the beginning of the show, the 16 are split into two tribes - Kucha and Ogakor. In the first 3 days in the Outback, Debb begins to get on the nerves of her fellow islanders with her attempts to take control, while Kimmi's over-eagerness to have fun grabs Jeff the wrong way, and Keith and Jerri clash almost immediately. When Ogakor wins the first Immunity Challenge, Kucha makes the long hike to Tribal Council where, with a 7-1 unanimous vote, Debb is voted out of the Outback. The tribe has spoken.moreless
