CBS is giving us a two-hour Survivor 41 season premiere before Big Brother 23, so we can expect multiple challenges. I’m anxious to see which tribe can pull of the first immunity win and who will be the first person sent packing. I’m also to see how all the changes this season play out!

First, let’s meet the tribes!

- Tiffany Seely, a 47-year-old teacher from Plainview, NY
- Xander Hastings, a 20-year-old app developer from Chicago, IL
And right out of the gate, the tribes have to compete against each other to win camp supplies. And Ua wins! The other two tribes will have to earn their supplies another way.
One Day 2, a boat pulls up to each tribe, telling them one tribe member has to get on the boat. Xander goes for the Yase Tribe, JD goes for the Ua tribe and Danny for Luvu. The three of them have to make a trek together, but they have no idea why.
When the three get to the destination, they have to split up and then each make a decision. They’re given an opportunity to protect your vote or risk your vote. If they all protect their votes, then nothing happens. If they all three choose risk your vote they get a second vote. If they don’t tall choose risk, they lose their votes. So they don’t really know how the other two are going to respond. Danny decides to protect his vote. Xander risked his vote. And we still aren’t totally sure if JD risked it.
The three 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. Luvu wins! And there’s only one immunity this time. That means the other two tribes will be heading to Tribal Council. And they have to give up their flint.
Who will be the first person to get their torch snuffed this season? The Tase tribe is up first. The votes: Tiffany, Abraham, Abraham, Abraham, Abraham. Abraham is the first person voted out of Survivor 41.
Let’s get to the Ua votes: Ricard, Sara, Brad, Sara, Sara, Sara is the second person voted out.
