The best of the best go head to head! – S40 E01 ‘Survivor’ Recap & Review

The veteran reality series hosted by Jeff Probst brings its 18 castaways to San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua, for its 30th installment. This season sees the group divided into three tribes — the white collars, which includes a corporate executive and a retail buyer, the blue collars, which includes a postal worker and a contractor, and the no collars, consisting of free-spirited individuals who are known to break the rules. The three tribes approach the game and how the interact with each other differently, while all sharing the same goal, to earn the title of Sole Survivor.

The winners arrive on the beach, but there’s no time for cheerful reunions. Dakal is the first tribe to win immunity, sending Sele to tribal council. A battle of new school vs. old school, Denise and Adam make a rookie mistake, and connections are ultimately the downfall for Natalie and Jeremy, with Natalie being the first contestant voted out. A poker alliance becomes the talk of the tribe when Sele wins immunity, sending Dakal to tribal council. Fire tokens come into play, Sandra gets an idol, and Amber becomes the second castaway voted out.
