Wednesday on Survivor 2019 the season kicked off with 2o new castaways and their battle to become the Island of the Idols Sole Survivor and take home the $1 million grand prize. The 20 players were also joined by two mentors, past winners Sandra Diaz-Twine and Boston Ron Mariano.
First up was the Jeff-less introduction of the season and the arrival of the 20 new castaways before they headed off to camp and get to work building their shelters.
The two tribes are heading right into their first immunity challenge. Who will pull of the win that could set the tone for the whole season? Let’s find out. Both tribes move quickly throughout the challenge. It looks like it’s going to be a brutal but close first challenge. Vokai takes the early lead. Lairo finally makes up some time and then takes away the lead. But Vokai takes the lead back. This is a crazy challenge. Lairo gets hung up and Vokai makes it a blowout and wins the first immunity challenge!
Island of the Idols
One of the members of Lairo will be going to Island of the Idols. And that person is Elizabeth. She will return before Tribal Council, though.
Elizabeth shows up, sees Rob and Sandra and flips out. They give her the rundown of what they’re there for and then they get to work mentoring her. Rob teachers her how to make fire and then offers her the shot at going against him to make fire. If she decides to make fire against him and wins, she gets an idol good for two Tribals. If she loses, she loses her tribe at Tribal Council. She takes the offer. And of course Rob wins. So she loses her vote at Tribal.
Who will be the first person to get their torch snuffed this season? Let’s find out.
The Votes: Vince, Ronnie, Vince, Ronnie, Ronnie, Ronnie, Ronnie, Ronnie. Ronnie is the first person voted out.
