Survivor 28,Cagayan eliminated Garrett Adelstein & David Samson tonight in episode 1. Tonight’s premiere episode, started off with the usual introductions of the contestants of the Beauty,Brains, and Brawn tribes. From there,they were forced to elect a person to be captain of each of the tribes,and that person had to immediately vote one person off. Beauty elected LJ to be captain of their tribe, Brawn elected Sarah for theirs ,and Brains elected David.
Morgan,Garrett, and Trish were immediately voted out of their tribes, but they were not gone for good. Instead, they were flown to another part of the island, and were presented with the opportunity to search for a hidden immunity idol. Garrett definitely searched for it. Trish decided not to look for it, and Morgan tried to find it.
Garrett ended up,finding the hidden immunity idol and vowed to go after David for getting rid of him. Shortly after that, Morgan,Garrett,and Trish rejoined their tribes for some conversation footage. J Tia got off to the wrong foot with her Brains tribe by being too bossy, claiming she new how to build a shelter, and then just ordered everyone around.
After a break, they showed the immunity challenge. It involved disassembling and reassembling chests, coupled with completing a puzzle. The first 2 tribes to complete it ,won immunity and fire. The Beauty and the Brawn tribes won, so the Brains tribe had to figure out who to vote off. J Tia and Garrett’s names ,immediately came up for elimination. Kassandra decided to tell J Tia, she wanted her out. Meanwhile, Garrett told J Tia, he wanted to get rid of David because of his vendetta against him. Spencer was worried that David might have the immunity idol, so he was hesitant to vote out David.
Next, they finally went to tribal counsel. Talked game for a bit before casting their votes. J Tia ended up getting 2 votes, and David got 4 votes. So, with 4 votes, David was totally blindsided as he had no idea. After all that, they showed more conversation footage. Garrett and Spencer offered Kassandra a final 3 deal with a handshake. Lindsey had a problem with Trish on the Brawn tribe. Apparently, Trish accused her of not contributing enough and just being lazy.
After another break, they showed the 2nd immunity challenge footage. In the challenge, they had to go through an obstacle course and complete another freaking puzzle for the win. The first 2 tribes to complete it, won immunity and a fish basket reward. The Brawn tribe finished first and the Beauty tribe finished 2nd, so Brains would,again, have to figure out who to vote off. Oddly enough, the Brains tribe not only sucked at the physical challenges, but also the mental ones, which is supposed to be their strong suit .
Next, they showed more conversation footage. Tony from the Brawn tribe, found a hidden immunity idol clue, which ultimately led to him, finding the actual idol and he was elated. Garrett and a couple of others, just wanted to sit around together and agree to vote out J Tia for not winning the puzzle part of their immunity challenge.
However, Latasha didn’t agree, and thought the game should be more strategic with more conversations. In fact, she told Garrett to just leave if he didn’t want to talk and play the game. Shortly after that, J Tia poured all the tribes’ rice out in the fire out of frustration, which didn’t bode well for her chances of staying.
