Story

Day 1

A massive fishing vessel stocked with supplies, carries eighteen castaways, divided into three tribes based on the personal attributes they mostly use in their daily lives: "Brains", "Brawn", and "Beauty".

These eighteen strangers have volunteered to be marooned and to fend for themselves, for the next thirty-nine days. They're cruising through the waters of Koh Rong, in southeast Asia, a beautiful, but formidable part of the world. Scorching tempatures and stiffling humidity punish the body, dehydration and heat stroke can bring down the strongest, the smallest cut can lead to a life-threatening infection. And if they last long enough, newly excerting energy will become their biggest obstacle. This will be the most grueling thirty-nine days in Survivor history. They have already been divided into three tribes, based on the qualities they most rely on in their daily lives. The brain tribe...

–Jeff Probst


Being an ER doctor, it's gonna be difficult for me to not show how smart I am, to express humility, but I can't deal with ignorant people 'cause they think they know what they're talking about.

Peter Baggenstos


This game is largely a brain game, and in these challenges I am going to kick ass. Because, puzzles lay down for me like lovers.

Debbie Wanner


The brawn tribe...

–Jeff Probst


I am a former professional basketball player. I was the guy that did all the things nobody else wanted to do. I'd go knock people on the ground, I'd push people out of the way, I did it better than most guys. People I'm gonna get along with are guys that are strong, and if you show weakness, bye-bye! (laughs)

Scot Pollard


My bread and butter has always been bounty hunting. You kick in the door, you raid the house, you snatch the guy up, hog-tie him like a pig, throw him in the back of your truck and take off. I don't care, I just need to get my paycheck, and you're my paycheck.

Kyle Jason


The beauty tribe...

–Jeff Probst


I do try and use my looks to my advantage in poker. If I feel like a male is staring at my boobs, I might push them up a little more.

Anna Khait


My life has definitely been easier because I'm better looking than most people. And that sounds terrible, it sounds awful, but it's the truth. My looks will definitely help me. 39 days and a million bucks in my pocket at the end.

Nick Maiorano



At the sound of a bell, the castaways are only given two minutes to collect as much supplies from the ship as they can before paddling to their respective camps. Members from all three tribes hurriedly release their rafts while their tribemates scramble for supplies, where the commotion has sent chickens, fruits, baskets, and other survival items flying everywhere, from the deck, to the ocean. Joe from the Brains tribe controls his tribe's raft as his tribemates throw items overboard, while Tai from the Beauty tribe, protects the chickens from being trampled by the frantic castaways. Cydney from Brawn tribe and Neal from the Brains tribe briefly scuffle over a basket of mangoes. After the two minute period, Jeff Probst orders the three tribes to paddle to their respective tribe camps.

People will probably recognize me from Big Brother, but being an outdoorsman, this game is totally for me. I don't mind gettin' dirty at all.

Caleb Reynolds


It's very hectic out here. I'm a retired FBI agent, and of course there've been times within the FBI when you've had those kind of cases where everything's going a mile a minute. But this to me is going to be the ultimate challenge, so I'm pumped for this. This is the real deal for me.

Joe del Campo


I'm, like, running around like crazy. I'm protecting the chicken because I-I-I love all living creature.

Tai Trang



The three tribes row over to camp.

Paddling in, and looking around at my brawn tribe, it feels like home. The majority of my life is about being strong, physically or mentally it's about being strong.

–Cydney Gillon


On brawn tribe, there is a lot of people who have different physical traits, I did six years in the army, so I don't need to prove to you I'm badass. A lot of people find my intimidating, they judge me because of how I look. They don't realize that I have two daughters and my youngest has autism, like I'll be the girly-girl dad and I also teach them how to be a badass!

–Kyle Jason


People might look at me and be like aw, Malibu barbie is here, she's not gonna be here long and I'm a lot tougher than they think, I've been bungee jumping in Bali, I've been face-to-face shark diving in Australia and I've been with three uncaged tigers in Thailand. I'm fearing, dareless and opinionated and this is something, I know I can do.

–Alecia Holden


I think all of us, have a very similar mindset. Were not beautiful, were not smart. But, we are strong, and I feel lucky right now, I know things in this game change real quickly, same thing that makes you laugh, makes you cry. But right now I think we got a great group

–Scot Pollard



Day 2

Day 3

Challenges

Reward/Immunity

Challenge: Wooden Ships
The tribes will swim out to a boat. Once the entire tribe is on board their boat, one person at a time will dive down to retrieve paddles. Once they have all four paddles, they will race to shore, where they will convert their boat to a cart by attaching four wheels. They will then push their boat to the top of the beach. Once at the top, they will have to decide between assembling a puzzle or testing their dexterity by stacking balls while standing on a wobbly beam. The first two tribes to finish win immunity.
Reward: A fire making kit for the winner; flint for the runner-up.
Winners (in order of finish): Chan Loh and Gondol

Final Words

This was very hard to be vote out number one, but I absolutely enjoyed every moment of it. I mean, it was a life lesson to me. What I learned is to fight hard. They can vote me out, they can do whatever they want but I'm not letting nobody bring me down. I encourage anybody who have any dreams, any goals, to go out there and do it, you know, don't let nobody hold you back. Yeah, I'm out number one, but I went out there and I played hard and I'm satisfied with that.
