10 former contestants (Malakal tribe) face off against 10 die-hard fans of the show (Airai tribe). The two tribes meet and are instructed by Jeff to get their boat and map and also must find 2 Immunity Idols that can only be played at the first Tribal Council. Jonny Fairplay finds the first idol, which is not for his tribe giving Yau-Man a chance to grab the real one. From the Fans tribe, Kathy is the first to find the idol.The "Fans" arrive at their beach and right away start building their shelter. But as the tribe is getting to know each other, Kathy makes a few comments she should not have. Also, their shelter does not come across as planned especially when they are stuck in a rainstorm during the night. Over at the "Favorites", the entire tribe is helping out with the important things at the campsite. Also, Parvati and James start a little flirting while Eliza thinks Amanda and Ozzy have a very close friendship. This creates an alliance between Jonathan, Eliza, Yau-Man and Ami. Both alliances try to persuade others to vote between Eliza or Parvati.At the Immunity Challenge, the "Fans" win sending the "Favorites" to Tribal Council. At the last second, Jonny claims that he misses his pregnant girlfriend and wants to be voted out.
