Tambaqui buff

Tambaqui was a tribe from Survivor: The Amazon.

The first all-male tribe in the show's history, the men were driven by testosterone, believing they would easily defeat their female rivals at Jaburu. However, despite flourishing in the survival aspect of the game, their overconfidence lost them most of the early challenges. Their tribe color is blue.
