Want to See the Elephant Dung? (Part 1) is the debut episode of Survivor: Gabon. This episode and the next one were aired together in a two-hour special.

StoryEdit

Day 1Edit

The game began with Jeff Probst asking everyone to say their name and their jobs. Most of the contestants were truthful. Crystal neglected to mention she was an Olympic athlete because it might make her a bigger target. Jeff then asked the oldest man and oldest women (Bob and Gillian) to pick a mat and go over there, where they would pick the tribes. Bob beat Gillian in rock-paper-scissors so he began picking first. He picked "baldy" (not knowing Ace's name), so Ace joined the Kota tribe. Gillian picked Crystal. Ace picked Sugar, saying it wouldn't be appropriate for a photographer not to have a model. Crystal picked Susie, in order to have all three moms on the same tribe, thinking that moms have to stick together. It was an odd choice, as Charlie noted in his confessional. Sugar picked Marcus next while Susie picked Matty. In the next round, Marcus chose Charlie (much to Charlie's excitement) and Matty chose Randy. The next choices were Charlie picking Paloma and Randy choosing Dan. Then Paloma chose Kelly and Dan chose GC. Kelly chose Jacquie and GC chose Ken. Jacquie chose Corinne, completing the Kota tribe. Michelle tried her best not to seem visibly upset she was picked last, and then was selected by default to complete the Fang tribe. Crystal and Gillian slow down the tribe in a challenge, causing a loss for the Fang tribe.

Voting ConfessionalsEdit

Go warm up.

–Randy


My vote for you is simply based on the fact that so many people want to be you so desperately and it looks like you haven't been from the moment you got here. And it's been a drain for you and I think for everybody else. Good luck to you and sorry about it but I don't think you want to be here, and with your whole attitude, I don't think you should be.

–Gillian


Last one chosen, first one to leave, maybe your life lesson in this is maybe you'll learn to speak your mind.

–Crystal


I think you're the weakest one on the tribe, that's pretty much it, for weak ones, but you are the weakest.

–Michelle


Michelle, I don't like doing this but you broke my trust with Kenny and if I can't trust you, you're useless to me in this game.

–Dan


Michelle, I tried really hard to save you but if I didn't vote with the group, then they wouldn't trust me at all. I'm very sorry.

–Ken


My vote is for Michelle because that's the name I heard the most today and I was trying to vote with the rest of the group, so sorry it had to be you.

–G.C.


I voted for you Michelle tonight because socially it's hard to interact with you, and quite honest, you are stronger than I am, I mean you kicked ass at that first challenge. We'll see you soon.

–Susie


Michelle, I know its been a rough couple of days, I know its been hard to keep our attitudes up, you're just too negative, you're bringing me down, you're bring the rest of us down, I'm sorry.

–Matty
