Survivor: One World “Two Tribes, One Camp, No Rules” Episode 1 (Season 24 Episode 1) airs on Wednesday February 15 at 8:00PM ET/PT on CBS.
Episode Synopsis: It’s a battle of the sexes when tribes are separated into men versus women, but they are in dismay when they learn of a game-changing twist – they must share one beach. Meanwhile, castaways are shocked when a tribe’s true colors are revealed at a competitive immunity challenge, on SURVIVOR: ONE WORLD, Wednesday, Feb. 15
(8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Show Summary: Eighteen castaways will compete on SURVIVOR: ONE WORLD when the Emmy Award-winning series returns on Wednesdays. The castaways must fight the elements, adapt to their new surroundings and vie against each other to stay in the game or be voted out by their peers, all while living together on the same beach. Tribes, separated by men versus women, will have to decide whether to share their resources with each other or leave the opposing tribe to fend for themselves.
The 18 castaways will be divided into two Tribes of nine: the Salani Tribe and the Manono Tribe, named after islands in Samoa. The tribes are comprised of individuals from all different backgrounds with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor. The show is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst.
Survivor: One World premieres on Wednesday, and fans are anxious for some Survivor spoilers. This season looks like it may end up less spoiled than last season, but that doesn't stop the dedicated spoiler seekers at forums such as Survivor Sucks. They've been analyzing the previews, photos and interviews, and they have turned up some great tidbits. What can fans expect to see happen in Episode 1 of Survivor: One World airing February 15, 2012 on CBS?
The premiere episode of Survivor 24 is titled “Two Tribes, One Camp, No Rules.” You can watch the Survivor: One World spoiler video on the left-hand side of the page. The men and women will be in separate tribes, but for the first time ever, they will share the same beach from day one. CBS teases that the two tribes are shocked to arrive at the beach and discover they have to share, and this sets up the season for plenty of drama.
The castaways have to battle for supplies right off the bat, and apparently Michael steals some of the women's supplies off of their mat. This will bring back memories of the first episode of Survivor: Pearl Islands, when Rupert did a “pirate pillage” and stole items from the other team's raft. From the sounds of things, the women's team is not happy when they are on the receiving end of this type of competitive behavior this season.
CBS also teases, “Castaways are shocked when a tribe's true colors are revealed at a competitive immunity challenge.” The challenge is called “Free Fallin,” and castaways have to jump off a high platform onto a net and then they need to then cross a balance beam. It appears that the men win this first Immunity Challenge.
Dalton Ross at Entertainment Weekly tweeted that there is a medical evacuation this season, and many spoiler fans think it may happen in this premiere episode. Survivor Sucks poster Polonium discovered that castaway Kourtney Moon tweeted after her return that she had broken her arm. She noted that it needed to be reset three times, so it seems it happens during her time filming Survivor: One World. Could Kourtney be the medical evacuation? Viewers will have to wait and see, but many suspect that is exactly what happens.
If Kourtney does break her arm and heads home after the first competition, many think that will leave the premiere without a Tribal Council. It would seem almost cruel for production to make the women's tribe lose two members after the first challenge, but it is certainly possible. While Survivor spoilers indicate that Kourtney seems to be the first to go, those at Survivor Sucks say viewers should keep an eye on Nina, as she may be leaving early as well.
Can the women overcome a rocky start to be serious competitors this season? Will the men's competitive nature create friction back at the beach they all share? Tune in Wednesday night to CBS to see how it all begins on Survivor: One World.
