The 35th season of Survivor kicks off with the castaways being split in to their respective groups: Heroes, Healers and Hustlers. They are instructed to gather supplies in a boat, then row to shore in and light a torch in order to win a fire making kit. The second tribe to finish will get flint and the last team goes back to camp empty handed.
In the mix, Ryan finds a secret clue as the teams head in to the water. It comes to a close finish but Healers finish first, followed by Heroes. Hustlers are still in the water and go to camp with nothing.
After arriving at camp, each tribe quickly got acquainted and all tribes became focused on winning challenges to remain successful. Alan quickly made an alliance with Cowboy and on the Hustlers tribe, Allie and Patrick also paired up quickly. Ryan heads off to read his secret advantage – a super immunity idol that he has to use at the first tribal council despite who wins; if Hustlers win the first immunity challenge, he MUST anonymously give the idol to someone on the losing tribe.
Tensions grew after Joe catches Mike looking for an idol and pressures him into saying if he found one – which he didn’t. Back on Hustlers, Ryan tells Devon about his advantage and the two continue to strengthen their alliance to each other after Ryan promises Devon won’t be the first to go. On Heroes, Alan didn’t like the relationship forming between JP and Ashley, and sends rumours around that they found an idol… however they didn’t. Alan makes them strip naked to prove they are not concealing an idol anywhere.
