Twenty new castaways are literally lost on the island of Palau, between the world of nature and the world of WWII military. On this island, they have to brave the elements and each other for a chance to outwit, outplay, and outlast for $1 million.

Check out GSNN's Tribal Council to see who is left on the islands!

"Love is In the Air, Rats Are Everywhere: Days 4-6" - February 24

NIGHT 3: Night on (No) Fire...

"Another day in paradise," Tom says so succinctly as we are still smarting from the win that turned quickly into a loss. Coby talks to Gregg about losing the flint, saying that they have to pick themselves up and carry on dancing. Or something to that effect.

But without fire, there's a bit of a problem for our happy camp. Yep. This is how we do Survivor in the old school. No fire and plenty of RATS. Said vermin put the chow down on what's left of Koror's leftovers and scare the devil out of Janu. "I know it's mind over matter. Don't mind them and it doesn't matter, but they are HUGE!" She's not the only one moaning about the campsite, as Caryn can't help but talk as if there was a worse camp to be a part of. Tom puts her fears aside: "I'm sure there is." Caryn thinks that Tom made a rash choice by electing to move to the new camp, but Tom counters by saying that it was not his decision, but rather that of the consensus of younguns that comprise the tribe. "Well next time can we put it to a vote?" Caryn asks. Tom agrees. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Katie is sick (as are we at this point... and it's still early!) of Caryn's whining about the island. "Oh well. We're here so get over it."

DAY 4: Crate-a-cards! (Okay, I've got nothing...)

Keep on your toes while making this run.
Your rivals will seek to spoil your fun.
You'll too have a chance to spoil their mood.
Stay out of the water and you may catch more food.

R-CHALLENGE: Flagged and Tagged (for flippers, snorkels and a spear. Also for flint should Ulong win)

First Reward Challenge, and it promises to be a doozy. We have another obstacle course with a rope swing, a balance beam, and a rope walk. At the end of the course, eighty flags. Each tribesman must cross the gauntlet while avoiding sandbags being swung by two opposing tribesmen. If you fall into the water at any point, you have to go back to the beginning and start again.  First team back with all of their flags wins reward. "If you don't know how to use these, you shouldn't be on Survivor."

Tom and Jenn are charged with the swinging, as Willard sits out. Meanwhile over at Ulong, they send Jeff and Ibrehem.

Katie has a lot of troubles with the rope swing, finally making it across while the Ulong manage to make no challenge out of the course. Willard tells Katie to raise her feet some more, but to no avail, as Katie bails at the last second. Meanwhile, Angie takes the blows given her as she breezes through the course with the fervor that says "I need to win this or else my tribe is gonna vote my pierced and tattooed ass off." That helps the Ulong to their first win. And us to their first victory celebration. And we didn't need to see it.

Back at camp...

After the accident, we made it a point to try to retrieve the flint soon. But how soon is soon? Tom says, "We couldn't have picked a worse time. The ocean is too choppy." That doesn't stop the mighty crew (minus Caryn and Coby, making useless on the beach) from giving it the old college try. And like people who make useless often do, they watch and judge. Coby believes that they're too far over. Caryn agrees, thinking that they're not in the right place.

Shows what they know, as Ian spots the box with the flint. He attempts to hook it back to the surface, but that is met with failure time and time again until he attaches the hook and the box is pulled up into an awaiting outrigger. Cheers erupt, and all is right with the world... for the moment. Ian celebrates this moment, "It felt like running a marathon and coming in first place. This is the happiest moment of my life." Back on the beach, Ian and Tom celebrate and shake hands. "It was a good day. We can be proud."  The rest of the camp light their first fire and Coby commends his troops on a job well done. "I am so proud of you guys."

This coming from someone who didn't even pitch in, mind you.

DAY 5: -.-. .-. .- - . / -- .- .. .-..  (That's "crate mail" in Morse code).

Judging from the code on the crate mail, they will be challenged in some form on their command of Morse code, so we go do the studying thing, but with only bits and pieces to each tribesman. They're hoping that they won't be singled out in the challenge. We'll see what happens.

I-CHALLENGE: Decode This!

The tribes must drag a footlocker underwater for 50 feet. Once their journey ends, they must bring the crate to surface level and finally onshore to reveal several mess kits, each with a Morse code letter. They must spell out an eight letter word in order to win Immunity from the next... Tribal... Counc... Wait a second... I-M-M-U-N-I-T-Y... That's an eight letter word! You don't suppose for a bit...

Anyway, Katie sits this one out while the others go to work. While Ulong sends one person at a time, Tom goes to work for Koror, getting all 50 feet by his lonesome. They're the first with the mess kits and the first to the board trying to spell "immunity". They do it first to win, meaning for the second time in a row, Koror avoids Tribal. And hopefully they won't lose anything this time.
