3PM Today February 13 The first episode of the new survivor series was aired over QTV 11. I used to follow this series a lot before but because a lot of things happened in between those seaons only recently I was able to follow it again. When I saw the advert that the first epi will be shown today, I marked my calendar to make sure that I'll be able to watch it.

Exactly 3PM there was Jeff Probst introducing the season. 16 Castaways riding in a truck. For a change they didnt start in water. Upon the truck's arrival Jeff told all the castaways to pick up anything that they can carry for 1 minute. Castaways were already divided into their respective groups : Jalapao (RED) and Timbira (BLACK).

I thought I've seen in all considering this is the 18th season of Survivor, but I was on my feet earlier in the episode when Jeff announced that the Castaways needed to vote one of their own. It shocked everyone. Castaways were not allowed to talk for the whole duration of the trip and they will only base their votes on "FIRST IMPRESSION". Eveyone thought that it was the first elimination but the twist of all twist happened. Jalapo picked the Oldest member of the tribe Sandy while Timbira chosen Sierra. Sandy was picked by her tribe because of her age and Sierra was chosen because she was sicked with Tonsilitis.

Sandy was really pissed when she was voted off the tribe. Sierra said she can give more to the tribe. Then Jeff announced that he didnt said the it was an elimination he said "wouldn't join the tribe". The two tribes need to conquer 4hrs of Trekking in the middle of extreme heat just to reach their respective locations. The two "Voted off Castaways" will be airlifted to their site. This announcement by Jeff made Sandy so happy.

Upon arrival at the site, Sandy became emotional then she found a mail telling her that she got two options : to build shelter or find an immunity idol. Since Sandy was so pissed with the tribe she opted to find the immunity idol. Sierra on the hand built the shelter for her tribe mates which changed the first impression about her.
