Survivor Guatamala Episode 1 Recap - Voted Off
Probst kicks off the season by telling us that we're in Guatamala, surrounded by Mayan Ruins, Crocodiles, Jaguars, and Poisonous snakes (oh my!) We're told that 18 strangers and walking to their new camp where a "Big Surprise" awaits them - by now the news is filled with reports that the "surprise" is that 2 former castaways will be joining the cast two "incredibly popular" stars - my guess is that it's gonna be Colby and Stephanie. We'll see.
ay, ya, ya, ya ya, ya ya ya yooooo.. ay, ya, ya, ya ya, ya ya ya yooooo.. ay, ya, ya, ya ya, ya ya ya yooooo.. blah blah blah. duh duh dunt!
The survivors start out in the middle of some ancient ruins, and Probst says "you're going to live in these ruins just like the Mayans did." OK - first of all, they weren't "ruins" when the Mayans lived there. And second of all, doesn't that strike you as a TERRIBLE idea?
Nakum (nah-koom), wearing yellow
Yaxha (ya-shaa), wearing blue
Here comes the big surprise: the two secret players are Bobby Jon and Stephanie. Heck, why didn't I keep of that? Duh. OK, as you may remember, those two were the last surviving two from the season where one tribe was completely decimated by the other.
Bobby Jon joins Nakum
Stephanie joins Yaxha
Probst says this place is dangerous as hell, crocs live in every body of water. The teams enter into a long trek contest to see which team gets the "better" camp.
The Yaxha team heads out and spends some time trying to learn to pronounce their tribe name. They do the usual wandering around with the compass and being lost. Ex-NFL quarterback Gary Hogeboom is member of Yaxha, and he confides in us that he isn't going to tell anyone that he played in the NFL for 9 years. My guess is that he gets away with it.
Dark falls on Guatamala and Yaxha looks to be taking a break.

|Liked (pretty much all of Nakum):
-Brandon (the cowboy). He was actually funny
-Judd. Although, did he remind anyone else of Chris from The Apprentice during Tribal Council? I just hope that when's he voted out Probst has to hold him while he cries.
-Brooke--she seems nice
-Margaret-she might be annoying but for now she's pretty capable and her tribe is damn lucky to have a nurse on board
-Gary-I love that he's keeping his identity a secret. Although, to be honest, does he really think any of these people would know him by name, much less recognize him.
-Danni. I like that she didn't get all rah-rah girl power when most of the men in her tribe were incapacitated.

|I say Thank God for the nurse. I did not find her to be annoying at all and felt bad for her that none of the men mentioned what a help she was to them. I think she will slide under the wire and be one of the finalists. They should have a nurse on every year.

|Yeah, the nurse was great, i meant that she wasn't annoying yet. I think they appreciated her and I think that the only reason Jim voted for her was because he wanted to go out because he was hurt and he was sure that a vote against the nurse wouldn't hurt her-she was in no danger. |
