Survivor 2017 debuted last night featuring the season premiere and the reveal of who was voted off when the three new tribes hit the beaches of Fiji and compete for immunity from the first Tribal Council of the season.
Unlike other recent seasons there was just one hour of Survivor for the premiere which meant less filler and more of getting down to action. First up was our quick get-to-know-ya segment as Jeff interviews the new castaways before telling them to kindly get off his boat. They were soon overboard while grabbing all the supplies they can manage before heading to shore and building camp.
Jeff revealed the luxury reward came early and was part of the launch. Back on the beach there are three baskets with fire 15′ up in the air. The first tribe to reach their fire gets a huge fire making kit back at camp. Second place gets a flint. Last place gets nothing.
Healers reach the beach first but the Heroes aren’t far behind… Healers get fire first while Heroes get it second. Meanwhile the Hustlers are completely lost at sea. The Healers are told to head to camp and they’ll know they’re there when they see the nicely pre-lit campfire.
While everyone was grabbing things on the boat Ryan find himself a “Immunity Super Idol” that can be used *after* the votes are revealed but there’s a catch, it has to be used at the first Tribal Council. If his tribe wins safety this week then he has to pick someone on the losing tribe and hand it off to them.

Castaways will of course be split by their three tribes and face “Tracks Of My Tears” where they’ll cross an obstacle course complete with a net climb, roller coaster, and a choice of three puzzles. First to finish will walk away with safety while last place will grab a torch.
Heroes have a slight lead with the Hustlers right behind them on the puzzle phase while Healers are struggling to keep up. Wait a moment, the Healers are taking the lead with their first ball in a pocket. Soon all three tribes have one of the three pockets filled but Healers keep their lead going.
Healers win immunity! It’s either Hustlers or Heroes heading to Tribal Council… Hustlers win immunity! Heroes are heading to TC tonight.
Heading in Tribal we discover that Chrissy received the Super Idol from Ryan. Looks like the beta went with another beta to pass along the power he couldn’t use. Not a bad idea if he’s hoping to get out some bigger strength on the opposing tribe.
Survivor 2017 Week 1: Tribal Council
Jeff welcomes the Heroes tribe to light their torch and take a seat. Someone is about to be voted off but will that twist Idol throw a wrench in things?
Jeff reveals the votes: Katrina, Ashley, Katrina, Katrina, Katrina.
Katrina was voted off Survivor…
Chrissy does not use her Super Idol! Well that was pointless, but I guess she didn’t want Ashley to go instead.
