The premiere of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains unleashed some big characters and big challenges. Click over to my full recap for analysis and behind-the-scenes intel on what you didn’t see, but until then let us take a minute to pause for the cause and honor the season’s first ousted contestant, whose name will be revealed right after the jump. (Don’t proceed if you don’t want to know!)
Apparently, the rest of the Heroes tribe was not too sweet on Sugar, as they sent the pin-up/actress/burlesque singer home after just three days. Bummer for her, but at least she provided the first episode’s signature moment — flipping off the Villains tribe while completely topless. Hey, that’s girl’s got moxie! The Heroes had other problems to contend with besides losing the immunity challenge, as Stephenie (dislocated shoulder) and Rupert (broken toe) suffered painful injuries just minutes into the game at the first reward challenge. Meanwhile, over on the Villains tribe, Coach couldn’t decide whether he wanted to go steady with Jerri or Boston Rob — both options which completely freak me out.
So, after all the waiting, what did you think of the first episode of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains? And how did you feel about it being stretched out to two-hours? (Too good or too much?) And finally, who should Coach start slaying…with his heart? Let us know, and make sure to check out the full recap and Jeff Probst’s blog.
