Ep.1 arrival: Opening scramble

Ep.1 arrival: Opening scramble

Ep.1 arrival: Opening scramble

Upon arrival, the tribes are divided by random draw. They then have two minutes to race across the beach and gather items useful for camp (mostly fruit, bamboo, palm fronds). At the far end, there is also one single-use immunity necklace for each tribe, good at their first Tribal Council. Those go ungrabbed until the closing seconds, when Dino takes Zamba's. After time runs out, Renier reveals he also grabbed a "tribe advantage," which gives Zamba useful camping items (one sleeping bag, a bed roll, knife, etc.).

Ep.1 Hero RC: Fire making

The tribes select one person (Jason; Chappies) to make fire for them. Chappies wins, gets flint and a firemaking kit for Zamba. He and Jason also each win "diplomatic immunity" bracelets, which allow them to swap tribes permanently after their tribe loses an IC. Bracelets are good until merge.

Ep.1 IC: Rope rungs, puzzle

Five people (Chappies, Paul, Mike, Kiran, Wardah; Nicole, Marisha, Shaun, Renier, Jason) must swim out to buoys and untie ten rope rungs, which two people (Tyson, Santoni; Anela, Mike) uses to build a rope ladder to the second level of the puzzle structure. Then one person (Pinty; Qieän) must untangle a rope "puzzle" to release rungs to build a ladder to the third level. There, two more people (Anesu, Carla; Thoriso, Amy) solve a block/logo puzzle. Zamba has a lead on the puzzle, but loses. Vuna sends Thoriso to Immunity Island.

Ep.1 Immunity Island: Digging

Ep.1 Immunity Island: Digging

Thoriso is presented with a dilemma: Get individual immunity and perform a timed task, with a risk of consequences if she fails, or return to camp immediately, and keep the necklace, but only to be used on someone else. Thoriso opts to stay and play, and must dig up a colored bag before the timer runs out. She fails and loses her vote, but gets to use the individual immunity at Tribal.

Ep1 II: Thoriso gets immunity.

Ep.2 RC: Fish traps, cog puzzle

Anesu sits out. In pairs, tribe members must run/wade out to a cage, climb into it, and untie and remove fish traps containing puzzle pieces, then bring them back to the starting line. Once all four cages have been returned, tribes must open up the traps and remove puzzle bags. Then one person (Thoriso; Kiran) solves an eight-piece spinning cog puzzle. Results: Santoni lags on the retrieval, giving Zamba a headstart on the puzzle. Thoriso swaps out for Shaun, who swaps for Dino (Dino promptly places all eight pieces). Kiran swaps for Pinty, Kiran, Paul. Zamba wins fishing gear.

Santoni sits out. Moving together as a tribe, each contestant must carry a heavy bag (containing coconuts and sandbags) across a series of obstacles. Once across, they must sort the sandbags from the coconuts. Then one person (Chappies; Anela) must knock a tribe logo block puzzle off a table using the sandbags. Once complete, two people (Carla, Anesu; Dino, Qiean) must rebuild the puzzle. Vuna leads until the puzzle, but Zamba wins.

She misses several times, but makes one final attempt as time runs out, and wins! She receives a clue to an idol hidden at Tribal Council. Had she lost, she would have received 1 vote against her at her next Tribal.
