Episode Summary

EDIT
The Importance of Being Eldest
AIRED:
The tribes trek through a Thai village divided in men amd women thinking that they will be divided along gender lines, but when they meet Jeff, they are informed that in Thai traditions the eldest are given more respect and advantages. This means that the oldest man and woman, Jake and Jan, are to pick the tribes. At Sook Jai, Robb and Shii Ann have an argument on building the shelter, and Stephanie goes skinny dipping, while at Chuay Gahn, Tanya is feeling sick, and Helen and John argue while finding the water pit. At the first challenge Chuay Gahn takes a lead but a mistake proves fatal and costs the tribe Immunity. John's friction with his tribemates earlier appears to be enough to get him ousted, as he becomes the first to leave Thailand.moreless

  • Well, OK start I guess

    7.0
    As this is supposed to be the least liked series of Survivor, I don't have any high hopes. But so far so good. The Pastor is gone...good...after the Christianity insaneness of season 4, I couldn't take anymore of that crap. Seems though that there are a lot of very cocky, overconfident people around. Well, let's see how it all plays out.

  • Least-liked of the series!

    Season Five without a doubt is the least-liked of the series.

    Do you want to really know why?

    Nobody with the exception of perhaps Jan or Helen, was liked in the show.

    Everybody was arrogant as well as very condescending.

    Also people like Ghandi with her yell and Robb with his cockiness, got on people's nerves.

    Just not a lot of well-liked people on this series at all.
