As Himself


Our first glimpse of the new contestants is of them paddling to shore. We also learn that another contestant(Melissa McNulty) dropped out leaving 19. Upon reaching shore, introductions are exchanged and groups start to form. The group soaks in the experience while surveying their new home.

The group is left wondering who they are. No tribal flag and no Jeff. Jeff appears overhead in a small aircraft and drops a package that they happily retrieve. Yau-Man easily breaks open the box. Onside are plans for camp amenities and maps to supplies. Sylvia stepped up as the leader putting her architect knowledge to good use. Unfortunately for her, she is quite vocal and rubbing folks the wrong way.

Night approaches and things are far from complete. To make matters worse, a storm beats our contestants back to reality. They continue working the next day. That night Dre(Dreamz) and James(Rocky) get into it. On Day three, the contestants arrive at their first challenge and Jeff asks who the leader was. Everyone said Sylvia. She was asked to split the remaining 18 players into two tribes. She split the ladies first, then the men. She was even nice enough to split Dreamz and Rocky. She was told that she would be going to Exile island and would join the losing tribe after tribal council.

The Challenge<br />
Seven players would pull the chariot while two people rode. The riders would untie bags of puzzle pieces along the way. Once three bags of pieces were untied, a flag at the end of the quarter-mile course was grabbed and a sprint to the starting location. Then, four players would put together the puzzles. The puzzles contain three numbers for the wheel lock that spins like a combination lock. If they counted correctly, the package in that compartment would contain a wrapped knife. Using the knife to chop a rope releasing their banner. Winners would remain at the camp and losers would be sent to a new camp and would be voting someone off at tribal council.
