Flip through our delightful picturebook, which in some ways resembles San Juan del Sur's opener (okay, the only way is visually).
We're really doing this! Look, it says 'Day 0' down at the bottom!
Upon further review, the problem with the flint may have been using it as an all-purpose whacking tool
Could our foreshadowing BE any less subtle?
Hurry up, dad. Make some fire! You're not getting any younger!
Wait, we're on SURVIVOR? I'm composing a strongly worded email to my agent in my head right NOW.
Seriously, they told us this was Amazing Race. Come on, it seemed legit! The Twinnies are here!
They're talking about monkeys, not husbands, Probst. Come on.
Dudes, thanks for giving me the higher seat. Now I'm taller than Drew! This is awesome!
Drew the bully, always keeping his little bro down
Well, at least they spelled my daughter's name correctly
More barely detectable foreshadowing
Again, foreshadowing: Were you aware of it?
You didn't think I was good enough to play for 10 years? Seriously?
Oh look! More foreshadowing! This picture is reversed, probably just an oversight.
Or maybe it wasn't an oversight.
We're planning to hide the fact we're twins. I think we can pull it off.
Somebody over thattaway lost our striker. Not naming any names.
He did it
Hands up everyone who's watched Survivor before!
We're father-son. You probably can't tell 'cause our head-tilts lean in the opposite direction
This is anybody's game
Heh, not likely
Wait, why are you giving me the first solo confessional in the episode? What are you trying to tell me?
Okay, everyone, here are your individually wrapped buffs, to make this look random
Ahem, Josh: Please TRY not to show the nametag on your buff wrapper to the camera
Wait, 'Blood vs Water' means I'm competing against my blood relative? Isn't that more like Blood vs Blood, Water vs Water?
Rocker has a dream: Of a tribe where he doesn't have to be around people with accents.
Hey, I remember that guy! He was an ass. (Spoiler alert: He still is.)
Just warning you: If you lose this, you'll probably lose the RC and IC, too
Stop touching me, Probst
Ha ha! He has to compete against his wife! It's funny cuz it's not us.
If I lose, I have to go where?
You brought back Exile Island? Why?
Heh, it's still funny cuz it's not us
Oh look, an ancient Maya glyph representing Mick Jagger
Okay, let's get on with it
Rocker: Go Val! Or I will squash you like a bug! A bug!
Whoa, that's pretty harsh, bro
Ahem. *I* will be the one yelling at the women here. Thanks.
Move it or lose it, people.
Almost got it! (...near the thing I'm supposed to grab)
Uh... go, Val. Throw that ring thing more accurately?
It's a nailbiter!
Yeah! We win! In your face, loved ones!
Me? But I cheered the loudest!
Stop trying to pin the striker thing on me, old man!
Well, then. Exile Island. Ayyup.
Thanks a lot, Probst.
We're in camp! From that 'into the jungle' song in the ads, I was expecting something slightly less grey and desolate.
Yeah, you can trust me, Kelley. I cried and stuff.
Jeremy is great! He can totally be my replacement Twinnie. I will call him Naremy.
Look into my eyes... closer... closer....
Meanwhile, back at Coyopa, Josh goes on a killing spree
This is a young tribe! Except for the old guy who's almost 40, and the living fossil.
Okay, yes, I'm 30. But I still have most of my teeth!
We're like, trying to make fire? And that old guy has, like, glasses? Like that'll work.
So far so good. Now, where did I put my glasses?
This isn't what it looks like
Nice work, Dale. Now, as a firefighter, I feel it's my duty to put this out. This could be dangerous if left unattended.
We have fire! It's enough to make me want to break into song! I know, I know. You don't want to pay the licensing fee. Fine.
So! This should be fun.
What should we do first? Go look for Phillip's feather?
All we found was Matt Elrod. He claims some guy named Wyatt Nash knocked him out and left him there. Good thing Survivor came back here, right?
Ooh! He card read good!
Urns, eh? What do you reckon, we untie 'em, or smash them with the flint once we get back to camp?
Well, the well WOULD help... if only...
Ah, there we go. Nice work again, Dale.
That's not very friendly, Val. Surely a firefighter should be welcome here.
That should say Alec's BIG brother, guys
Time to let you guys in on a secret: I'm a model.
Really? You mean as in model citizen, or something? Model UN participant?
Dude! We made a square! High five!
I think I recognize someone! No, not the Twinnie.
I'm gonna tell everyone I'm a T-shirt salesman. That should open some doors. And wallets.
Wes: 'Can I call you Kenny, Mr. Powers?' John: 'Shut up, Stevie.'
Wes: 'Can I call you Kenny, Mr. Powers?' John: 'Shut up, Stevie.'
Our shelter has a HUGE problem with some poisonous sap. No, I mean in addition to Rocker.
Don't rub sand in it! You'll get a corneal abrasion!
Whoa, this is crazy. We don't have bugs or plants in Florida.
Welcome back, Jimmy Johnson
Oh, and welcome back to you too there, Judd
We haven't really seen him since Day Zero, but here is the happy-go-lucky, fun-loving one of the Jons/Johns
Hey, I'm back from Exile. Thanks for finally letting me meet my tribe, Probst
Woo! Me too! Thanks for making space for me on the mat, guys.
Ok, we'll take that.
Survivors ready, go, etc.
Baylor unties the big bag, drops it directly on Rocker's head
More unting ba... why is Rocker's arm so red?
Rocker throws a strike!
Use the rope to go up, Probst
Kelley guides the ball into position by doing an impression of the catching V thing
Rocker, giving up a lot of walks.
Coyopa! Takes an insurmountable lead on the puzzle!
If it doesn't fit, you must, uh...
Hunahpu! Also... not done...
We did it! Mostly Missy, but also you other people!
Wes is displeased with this outcome. Nadiya moreso.
We're happy we won, and yet, you made us feel sad. Thanks, Probst!
Welp, guess I picked the wrong season to be the oldest person on my tribe by 15 years.
Keith finally gets to camp, with a newly buffed friend.
The good news is, they have flint. The better news is, I haven't touched it yet.
Jeremiah, Reid, Misty. Got it.
So... did you and Val find any idols?
Val seems somewhat less pleased to get to her camp for the first time.
I am the puppetmaster, Val. *I* am the puppetmaster.
So, I could spend the next hour talking to people before Tribal, or I could try to use my idol clue.
Thanks again, Probst! (And Dale.)
So, Natalidiya, tell us more about Ten Time Emmy Winner The Amazing Race
You guys should really consider wearing shirts. Possibly also pants.
I'm like a girl? How Sandra/Fairplay of you!
Hold on tight, kids! This is about to get good. In theory.
Ok, ladies. There are four of us, and five guys. We're a majority, right?
I'm getting another confessional right at the end? Okay...
Oh, don't worry, Baylor. Don't read anything into my body language. I'm totally with you.
Rocker lags behind the march to Tribal, so he can run in from camp.
Ooh, Rocker's talking. Will he channel Shannon Elkins? (Spoiler alert: No.)
I'm a landscaper, Jeff.
I've got the whole tribe in my hands, the whole tribe in my hands.
Are we done yet?
Oh yeah, Exile Idol-er-*cough* ISLAND was fun. Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more.
I was also on this episode.
Hurry up with the counting, Probst.
Wow, 60% correct spelling of someone who is wearing a necklace with her name on it! Better than expected, guys.
Nicaragua is great for streaks of people getting voted out first.
