Survivor

Season 1 Episode 2

The Generation Gap

EDIT

Full Episode Summary

Pagong are growing weary of BB's bossy and domineering attitude, and as Greg and Colleen begin to get friendly, the crabby 60-something clashes with Ramoana and Joel. Meanwhile, at the Tagi camp, Stacey and Rudy's personality clashes are getting worse, but Rudy does have a fond admiration for gay islander Richard. Tagi works as a team and prevails in the second Immunity Challenge, where they must eat live bugs, mostly due to Stacey, who competed with Gervase in a tiebreaker round. BB's fate was sealed when he used the tribe's only supply of clean water to wash his clothes, and when it came to Tribal Council, BB Anderson was voted off of the island. The tribe has spoken.moreless

When you watch this episode, you will notice how the series, or at least the attitude of the players, has changed over time. In this episode the late William Byron "BB" Anderson suggests that the tribe throw the Immunity Challenge (BB called it the "Indemnity" Challenge. Must have been a Fred MacMurray fan.) to get rid of what he called "dead weight". His fellow tribe members were appalled by his suggestion and unanimously rejected it. However in later seasons, throwing an Immunity Challenge is considered a viable option. We have seen tribes do that without a second thought. In the case of "Survivor: One World" a tribe won the challenge and then very foolishly forfeited Immunity. It's interesting to see how the game and attitudes have changed over the long run of "Survivor".moreless
