Jeff Probst, the host, announces that Survivor, the greatest social experiment is back. Eighteen strangers are about to begin a 39 day adventure that will forever change their lives. They will be abandoned on an island and forced to work together while voting each other out. At the end, only one person will remain to claim the million dollar prize. The anchor is dropped on a beautiful white sailboat with the 18 contestants on board. Jeff welcomes them to the 35th season of Survivor. He tells them that for the first time they have been divided into three tribes based on the positive traits most associated with them by others. Jeff informs the first group of six that they are the Heroes tribe. This group is heralded for their courage, achievements and for the ideals for which they stand.

Jeff passes out the tribe buffs. He then points out that the boat they are on is loaded with supplies. Their job is to get as many of these supplies from this boat to their tribe's boat. Jeff then tells them there is an even bigger reward at stake. On the beach nearby, each tribe has an urn which is on fire and is 15 feet in the air. When Jeff rings the bell on the boat, each tribe should stop gathering supplies and get all six tribe members on their boat and paddle to the beach. When they get to shore, they must lift one person high enough to light their torch. The first tribe to light their torch wins fire in the form of a massive fire making kit that will be waiting for them back at camp. The second tribe to light their torch wins a flint. The losers will go back to camp with no fire.

When they are all back at camp, Patrick tells everyone that he wonders who got a clue on the boat today. Ryan doesn't want to let his tribe know that he was the one who found an advantage on the boat, so he waits until he is away from the others to look at it. When Ryan opens his "Secret Advantage," he is thrilled to find out that he has a super immunity idol that can be played after the votes are read. This advantage can only be used at the first Tribal Council though. So, if his tribe does not go to the first Tribal Council, he must send it to someone on the losing tribe. The recipient will not know that Ryan gave it to them.

Each tribe will then pull a heavy cart up the tower, then hop in and quickly roll down to the bottom. At the bottom will be three different Survivor table mazes. The first tribe to reach the mazes will get first choice of which maze they want to tackle. The second tribe will get to choose between the remaining two mazes. The last tribe will be left with the maze that remains. Next, they will work together as a tribe to get their maze to the top of an even taller tower. Once at the top of the tower, two players from each tribe will maneuver three balls through their maze. The first two tribes to finish win immunity.

Everyone gets to the top quickly and starts pulling a rope to bring their carts up the tower, so they can jump in them and get down to the bottom. The Heroes get to the mazes before the rest. So, they have first choice among the three mazes and choose the traditional maze. The Hustlers arrive next and they choose the obstacle maze. The Healers get there last, so they are left with the remaining rail maze. All three tribes work hard to get their heavy table mazes up a very tall tower, so they can begin to solve them. The Hustlers make it up first, then the Heroes, and then the Healers. Now they set up their mazes and begin maneuvering them to get their three balls to the end.

Now it is a close race for second. Both the Heroes and Hustlers are trying to land their third and final balls in the last slot and they are both close. In the end, the Hustlers get the job done first and win immunity and flint. So, the Heroes come in last and will go to Tribal Council to vote someone out tonight. Before heading back to camp, Chrissy throws up from working so hard at the challenge. As he leaves the challenge, Ryan now knows that his tribe is not going to Tribal Council.

Revision as of 11:32, 29 October 2017


I'm Not Crazy, I'm Confident is the season premiere of Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers.

Story

Day 1

Jeff Probst, the host, announces that Survivor, the greatest social experiment is back. Eighteen strangers are about to begin a 39 day adventure that will forever change their lives. They will be abandoned on an island and forced to work together while voting each other out. At the end, only one person will remain to claim the million dollar prize. The anchor is dropped on a beautiful white sailboat with the 18 contestants on board. Jeff welcomes them to the 35th season of Survivor. He tells them that for the first time, they have been divided into three tribes based on the positive traits most associated with them by others. Jeff informs the first group of six that they are the Heroes tribe. This group is heralded for their courage, achievements and for the ideals for which they stand.

Ben Driebergen insists that as a Marine who has put his life on the line for his country, he is just doing his job. Chrissy Hofbeck is happy to be on the Heroes tribe.

I feel proud of having had a career and then stopped and stayed home to take care of my kids and then came back to an awesome career.

Chrissy


Jeff then introduces the Healers tribe. They receive gratitude for their acts of service in helping others heal their physical or emotional pain.

Cole Medders explains that as a Wilderness Therapy Guide, he helps disadvantaged teens by teaching them how to survive in nature. This helps them build their self-esteem. Mike Zahalsky admits his patients are happy when he helps them with sexual dysfunction and male infertility issues.

Winning Survivor is the biggest dream in my life.

Mike


The third tribe is the Hustlers tribe, whose members are respected for their hard work ethic. They get things done, no matter what it takes.

Ali Elliott admits that as a Celebrity Assistant, she does a variety of tasks including being a make-up artist and a cook. Ryan Ulrich is glad to see that his tribe is made up of big and strong people, who will be good at building a shelter and opening coconuts.

I'm just going to defer to them (tribe). I'm 125 pounds soaking wet. I don't drink and I don't have a girlfriend. Yet... Come on, who wants to align with me? (laughs)

Ryan



Jeff passes out the tribe buffs, and reveals the tribe names: the Heroes, wearing blue, are Levu; the Healers, wearing yellow, are Soko; the Hustlers, wearing red, are Yawa. He then points out that the boat they are on is loaded with supplies. Their job is to get as many of these supplies from this boat to their tribe's boat. Jeff then tells them there is an even bigger reward at stake. On the beach nearby, each tribe has an urn which is on fire and is 15 feet in the air. When Jeff rings the bell on the boat, each tribe must stop gathering supplies and get all six tribe members on their boat and paddle to the beach. When they get to shore, they must lift one person high enough to light their torch. The first tribe to light their torch wins fire in the form of a massive fire-making kit that will be waiting for them back at camp. The second tribe to light their torch wins a flint. The losers will go to camp with no fire.

Jeff tells them that Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers has now begun. With that, they all jump up and start throwing supplies overboard toward their boats. Fruits, vegetables, crates, and people are just some of the things landing in the water. Ryan is thrilled to find a package label "Secret Advantage" among the supplies. He quickly hides it in his pants. Jeff then rings the bell and everyone scrambles to get the supplies and themselves into their tribe boats, so they can head towards the beach and get fire. Soko arrives at the beach first. The Levu tribe is close behind them. Soko lifts Roark Luskin up to light their torch from the urn of fire above. Levu lifts up Chrissy to light their torch. Meanwhile, Yawa is having a hard time getting their boat to shore. Soko gets fire first and win the massive fire-making kit. Levu gets fire next and win the flint to make fire. Yawa are just now approaching the beach. They will go to their camp with no fire making equipment, leaving Ali disappointed.

I'm hoping that our work ethic and our strength alone can push us to come together and get it done.

Ali



Jeff sends everyone off in their boats with a map to their tribe camps.

As Soko approaches their beach, they see a huge bonfire waiting for them at their camp. They are excited to have won the first challenge and the coveted fire reward.

Healers are definitely a team-based group in terms of how we approach our careers, and in terms of how we approach our lives and I think that's a really distinct difference between us and the other two.

Roark



Soko arrives at camp and immediately unload the supplies from their boat. Joe Mena feels that with three strong ladies like Roark, Desi Williams, and Jessica Johnston and a guy like Cole who is very fit, they have a great tribe and should be successful in challenges. Jessica is also happy to be on the tribe with Cole, whom she finds very attractive. Joe is happy to see that his tribe is full of nice and caring people.

I came out here to win and I'm probably more strategic than everyone all together. So, they're just all my victims at this point.

Joe



Over at Levu, JP Hilsabeck is using the flint to make fire. The rest of the tribe is building their shelter. Ashley Nolan is ready to make alliances right away. She first approaches JP and suggests the two of them team up with Ben to form an alliance, to which JP agrees. After nine years of playing in the NFL, Alan Ball is used to sizing up his competition quickly.

I'm definitely going to play the game, which for me is a full tilt sprint out of the gate.

Alan


Ben asks Alan whom he would like to work with. Alan recommends they align with JP because he is strong and can help them win challenges. Ben agrees and suggests they make Ashley the fourth person in their alliance to give them a majority. Alan likes that plan. As he walks through camp, he notices how much time JP and Ashley are spending together.

This power couple or whatever they got going on is over.

Alan



When Chrissy and Katrina Radke leave camp to get water, Ben confirms with Alan, Ashley, and JP that the four of them are an alliance that will work together. Ben likes working with Alan, Ashley, and JP since they are younger and more fit than the two moms. Meanwhile, Chrissy and Katrina agree to work together at the water well. They know they are older than the others and feel it is important to stick together.

Winning is the most important thing right now for this tribe.

Ben



Yawa are at their camp working on a shelter. Lauren Rimmer is disappointed that they did not do well in the first challenge, but she knows that hustlers are typically hard workers.

If we play as a team, we'll be fine and if not, we're going to be screwed.

Lauren


Patrick Bolton is building the shelter, but takes a break to show the others a stick bug which is on his hand. Meanwhile, Ali sets out to form alliances.

My priorities for Day 1 are to make sure that I obviously connect with people.

Ali


She decides to have a conversation with Patrick, since he is getting along well with the group. As Patrick and Ali gather materials for the shelter, they agree to have each other's backs in the game. Patrick likes Ali and hopes that he can trust her.

It's Survivor, you can't know for sure. So, I feel good, but I'm not certain.

Patrick


When the entire tribe gathers back at camp, Patrick tells everyone that he wonders who got a clue on the boat earlier. Ryan does not want to let his tribe know that he was the one who found an advantage on the boat, so he waits until he is away from the others to look at it. When Ryan opens his "Secret Advantage," he is thrilled to find out that he has a super immunity idol that can be played after the votes are read. This advantage can only be used at the first Tribal Council so if his tribe does not go to the first Tribal Council, he must send it to someone on the losing tribe. The recipient will not know that Ryan gave it to them.

That means that I have the most power right now in this game and nobody else has any clue whatsoever.

Ryan



Day 2

At Soko, everyone is working to perfect their shelter and camp. Desi is happy to be on this tribe, which is working together well.

We know that first and foremost we can communicate. As long as we do that in camp life, everything runs smoothly.

Desi


Mike remembers that his ten year old son told him to look for Hidden Immunity Idols. He volunteers to go check the fire, which gives him time away from the others to search for one.

I am out here to win a million dollars and be the best Survivor player ever.

Mike


Back at camp, Joe comments on how long Mike has been gone and suspects that he is looking for an idol.

I have a great lie detector and I'm thinking that Mike is not a trustworthy guy.

Joe


Later, Joe pulls Mike aside and asks if he is hiding an idol in his pants. Mike assures Joe that he has not found an idol. He does not appreciate the way that Joe interrogates and bullies him. Mike is worried about what his tribe thinks of him though.

Perception is 90% reality.

Mike



Over at Yawa, Ryan, Patrick, Ali and Devon Pinto are carrying a heavy log into camp.

These first impressions are crucial and I really like having Devon in this group because he's different than me.

Ryan


As the tribe is sitting in the shelter, Patrick asks Devon what he does. Devon tells everyone that he teaches kids how to surf, which does not make him a lot of money, but gives him enough to pay his bills. Ryan sees Devon as a perfect person to align with. He feels he is better than Devon at strategy and that he can influence him in the game. He takes Devon aside and tells him about the advantage he found on the boat the previous day and how he can use it to save them if their tribe goes to the first Tribal Council. Devon is thrilled that Ryan is willing to work with him and protect him with his advantage. They end up making a final two deal.

Ryan and I have the same mindset, the same ideas and our chemistry is perfect. So we're going to cause chaos together.

Devon


Ryan assures Devon that he trusts him and will not tell anyone else about the advantage.

That night, the Levu tribe is gathered around the fire. Alan still does not like how well JP and Ashley are getting along.

I need to let everybody know those two are stronger together right now, than we are all as individuals.

Alan


Alan takes JP aside and asks him if he has the idol. JP assures him that he does not, but Alan does not believe him. Alan asks JP to take everything out of his pockets to see if he has the idol in his pants. Ashley walks in on their conversation and is surprised that Alan is challenging JP, since they are supposed to be in an alliance together. She tries to calm Alan down.

I know I look like the crazy man, but now I got suspicion going and I just put a target on their back.

Alan


JP and Ashley get frustrated with Alan for falsely accusing them of having an idol.

His drama and everything that he causes, I think may be not worth his strength.

JP


Alan continues accusing JP of having an idol even after JP strips down to prove that he is not hiding anything in them. Ashley is shocked at how paranoid Alan has become and wonders if he is the right person to align with.

Day 3

Jeff welcomes the tribes to the first Immunity Challenge. They will race up a cargo net to the top of a tower. Each tribe will then pull a heavy cart up the tower, then hop in and quickly roll down to the bottom. At the bottom will be three different table mazes. The first tribe to reach the mazes will get first choice of which maze they want to tackle. The second tribe will get to choose between the remaining two mazes. The last tribe will be left with the maze that remains. Next, they will work together as a tribe to get their maze to the top of an even taller tower. Once at the top of the tower, two players from each tribe will maneuver three balls through their maze. The first two tribes to finish win immunity.

Jeff uncovers the two Immunity Idols. In addition, Yawa is still playing for fire in the form of flint. Jeff then informs everyone that revotes at Tribal Council are back this season.

The challenge begins and all three tribes race to get up their cargo nets to the top of the first tower. Everyone gets to the top quickly and starts pulling a rope to bring their carts up the tower so they can jump in them and get down to the bottom. Levu get to the mazes before the rest and have the first choice among the three mazes and choose the traditional maze. Yawa arrives next and they choose the obstacle maze. Soko get there last and are left with the remaining rail maze. All three tribes work hard to get their heavy table mazes up a very tall tower. Yawa makes it up first, followed by Levu, and then Soko. They set up their mazes and begin maneuvering them to get their three balls to the end.

Chrissy and Ben work the maze for Levu, while Devon and Ali work Yawa's maze. Mike and Desi are the operators of the Soko maze and they are the first ones to get a ball to the finish. Yawa and then Levu land their first balls next. Soko stays in the lead and are the first to land their second and final balls, which wins immunity for their tribe. In a close race for second, both Levu and Yawa are trying to land their third and final balls in the last slot. In the end, Yawa gets the job done first and win immunity and flint. Levu come in last and will go to Tribal Council to vote someone out. Before heading back to camp, Chrissy throws up from working hard at the challenge. As he leaves the challenge, Ryan now knows that his tribe is not going to Tribal Council and that he has to choose whom to give his advantage to on the losing Levu tribe.

I can give this to someone who is in the minority and save them tonight and they could take out someone who may be a threat and change the game.

Ryan



As the Levu tribe returns to camp, everyone feels terrible that they have to vote someone out of the game. Ashley is still feeling uncomfortable about Alan.

In less than 12 hours, everything went from 100% we're safe, solid four so there really is no trust.

Ashley


Ben meets with Alan, Ashley, and JP and suggests that they all vote for Katrina tonight, which they all agree to. Alan still does not trust Ashley and JP though.

Whatever they're trying to do, I'm blowing it up.

Alan


Alan talks to Katrina and Chrissy. All three of them feel like they may be the ones voted out tonight and decide to try and get Ben to join the three of them in voting out Ashley.

I have to put faith in three people that I'm not sure totally have my back, hopefully it works.

Katrina



Challenges

Challenge: Race to Shore
When host Jeff Probst rings a bell, all three tribes will have to make their way to their boats, along with the items they collected, and paddle to shore. Once all six members are ashore, they must raise one member to reach a fire pit with a torch. The first two tribes to light their torches win.
Reward: Firemaking kit (1st place); flint (2nd place)
Winners (in order of finish): Soko and Levu

Immunity Challenge: Tracks of My Tears
The tribe will run up a cargo net to the top of a tower. Each tribe will need to pull up a cart on a track to the top. They will then careen down in the cart, where they will choose one of three mazes. The first tribe will choose one of three mazes (between an obstacle maze, a rail maze, and a traditional maze), the second will choose one of the two remaining mazes, and the last will take the one left over. They will then run up another tower, where they will pull up and lock in their maze. The first two tribes to get all three balls into a slot wins.
Additional Stipulation: If Yawa wins, they will receive flint.
Winners (in order of finish): Soko and Yawa

Final Words

I think this tribe's very interesting. It's an interesting group with a lot of pride. I feel very honored that I got to be on the "Hero" tribe and I'm proud of being an Olympian, I always will be an Olympian. I think maybe I was a little bit too eager getting into the game, and there was very little keeping me talking about strategy, but I really had a blast being out there, I really enjoyed what I did get to do. I wish it was longer than three days, and I do wish all the contestants the best of luck.
