Last night was the season premiere of Survivor: Brawns, Beauty, and Brains.
The tribes were created in three by the attributes to play in Survivor: brawns, beauty, and brains. After the 3 tribes were formed, each selected a leader. That leader, then, picked the one member who they viewed as the weakest link. But, Jeff Probst then told the weakest links that they will fly over to their respective tribe locations via copter where they will make a decision that will affect their tribes. At the camp sites, they faced on deciding to go and search for the hidden immunity idol for themselves or have their tribe to have an extra bag of rice.
The Brains tribe was called Luzon and consists of Garrett, Spencer, David, Kass, Tasha, and J'Tia. David, president of the Miami Marlins, was picked as the leader and didn't hesitated in naming Garrett as the weakest link. David said that his reason was that he was looking ahead more than 2/3's ahead into the game where he could be the weakest. When Garrett arrived at the camp site, he decided to look for the idol and found it. Meanwhile, J'Tia was in charge of building the shelter, and many found her bossy and not helping to build the hut.
The Beauty tribe was called Sohania which consists of Morgan, LJ, Brice, Jeremiah, Jetra, and Alexis. They named LJ as their leader, and he picked Morgan was the weakest link because, according to him, she was "hot," and he trust the ones who are "cute" than the ones who are "hot." Like Garrett, Morgan also searched for the idol but didn't find it. When the rest of the tribe didn't saw her at the site and asked her where she been, she lied by saying she was helping building the shelter. But, LJ was suspicious.
The Brawns tribe, called Aporri, consists of former NBA player Cliff Robertson as well as Sarah, Tony, Lindsey, Trish, and Wu. The leader was Sarah, and she picked Trish as the weakest link. Unlike Garrett and Morgan, she opted to give her tribe the extra bag of rice. To help him get further in the game, Tony didn't tell his fellow tribe members that he's a cop. But, Sarah, another cop, don't trust him.
The first immunity challenge of the season had the tribes maneuver a cart through an obstacle course. While on the course, they have to get the keys to unlock the chests from the chains. After getting all 3 chests, they have to disassemble the carts to get them and the chests through the final obstacle and put them back together again. Then, they opened the chests to get the pieces and solve a puzzle. The first 2 tribes to complete the puzzle will get immunity as well as items to help them create fire. In the end, Beauty finished first & won immunity plus fire kit. Brawns came in second & won immunity as well as flint. That means, Brains, who struggled on the course, came in last and will go to tribal council.
At the Brains camp, David and Kass wanted Garrett gone. Others wanted J'Tia gone because of her bossy attitude. But, Garrett wants David gone and talked to Spencer about his plan. Spencer said that he saw David & Kass walking & talking together and thought they are searching for the idol.
At tribal council, Garrett was spooked at the spider. J'Tia told Jeff that she knows she's in trouble while David explained his choice of picking Garrett as the weakest player. In the end, David was blindsided and became the first person vote out of Survivor this season.
After tribal council, Garrett said that he's not having fun dealing with the elements of playing in Survivor. He said that he missed the comfort he got used to while playing poker. He talked to Spencer about what's next, and the two tried to convince Kass to join their side and not with the two women on their tribe.
Over at the Brawns tribe, everybody likes Cliff because of his likable personality. Meanwhile, Trish can't stand Lindsey' personality and talked to Tony about her thoughts. Tony, later, built a spy shack with the propose of spying of Cliff
On the Beauty tribe, Brice observed over the other member, including Jeremiah drooling over Morgan.
The Immunity Challenge had the tribes swim to bamboo cages, climb to the top and dive. Then, they have to dive into the water to untie the knots to release the front gate and retrieve the fish traps to pull them to the beach. Then, they have to open the traps to get the puzzle pieces to solve a fish puzzle. First 2 tribes will get immunity and fishing gear. The Beauty tribe struggled right off the gate while the other 2 tribes had no problem getting to the beach. The Brains tribe was already doing the puzzle, but J'Tai was struggling with only one piece on the puzzle. That allowed the Beauty tribe to catch up. In the end, Brawns finished first and won immunity Beauty, meanwhile, rallied and finished second and won immunity too. Brains finished last and will go to tribal council once again.
At the Brains tribe, J'Tai was the obvious target based on her performance at the puzzle. In order to show Kass who she's loyal to, Garrett decided to hold an open forum. However, Tasha wanted to have side conversations for gameplay, so she scrambled to get to the top of the pack. J'tai was so upset that she pour almost all of the rice into the fire.
At tribal council, Tasha and Garrett discussed his decision to have an open forum while J'tai confessed on pouring rice to the fire. In the end, Garrett was blindsided as he was the second player being voted out of the game.
CATCH YOU WEDNESDAY!
