Tribe History

In spite of a starting-line stumble from Austin Carty, the young men of the Viveros tribe were able to complete the first Reward Challenge on Day 1, ensuring that one of them would not be the first to be sent to Exile Island. The honor would be instead bestowed upon Misty Giles of the Bayoneta tribe.

The group was less than successful upon arriving at camp, with Bobby Mason leading a game of pick-up baseball. Aras Baskauskas's half-baked attempt to focus the men's energy went over poorly, as Nick Stanbury described it as "hare-brained". The group's attempts at fire and shelter were just as successful, and it seemed that the younger men were ill-equipped for the game of Survivor.

With immunity at stake on Day 3, Viveros narrowly pulled out victory over the older women of the Casaya tribe, finishing in third and barely avoiding Tribal Council.

On Day 4, the four tribes were dissolved into two when a Schoolyard Pick resulted in reassigned teams. Aras and Bobby became members of the new Casaya, while Austin and Nick joined the new La Mina.



  • "Viveros" is a Spanish word meaning "nurseries".
  • Each of the four original tribes in Panama had a representative in the final four. Aras Baskauskas, the eventual Sole Survivor, was Viveros's representative.
  • Along with Bayoneta, Viveros is the first tribe to never visit Tribal Council.
  • Along with Bayoneta, Viveros is the second shortest existing tribe in the history of the series, with four days. The tribe which holds the record is the Outcasts tribe, with only two days in existence.
  • Viveros is the only tribe in Survivor history to never, at any point, have any female tribe members.
  • Bobby Mason is the only member of Viveros not to make the merge.
