Reward: The ability to choose who will be sent to Exile Mountain
Winners: Lucerne, Valais, & Glarus
|“||So this is for confessionals, huh? Well, let me just say these people are in for a real surprise. I'm bringing thunder and lightning with me and this game will be taken by storm. Call me cocky, call me arrogant, but I'm able to be when I got this thing. Watch out people!||”|
Twenty new castaways were flown to Switzerland to begin their "adventure of a lifetime." They travelled from the busy city of Zurich, aboard a train and then by foot to the remote location of Lake Lugano.
They were divided equally into four tribes: Glarus, composed of Ian, John, Lucy, Maxwell, and Skandi ; Valais with Sam, Courtney, Ken, Max, and Will; Lucerne with Matt, Jino, Jad, Cal, Wojtek, ; and Ticino made up of Mark, Andrew, Lincoln, Al Pal, Julie.
Upon reaching their camps, seeing that most of the Valais are inactive, Ken immediately approached Sam, the only one active that time, for an alliance. Max also became a member and their alliance of "Three Amigos" is formed.
At Lucerne Jino, Matt and Jad also formed an alliance.
At Ticino, Mark was being nervous about his tribe mates. Since most of them are inactive, he immediately asked Lincoln for an alliance, Lincoln, being the only one active that time.
The Immunity Challenge was announced. The challenge is named "Lie to Me" previously used in Survivor: Hawaii, in which each castaway will have to tell three statements about their selves – one lie the others are true. The opposing tribe would then guess the other tribe's lies. The three tribes that would get the most right guesses will win immunity.
An additional twist was also added. As a reward, the tribe that has the highest right guesses among the winning tribes, will send someone to Exile Mountain were they can find a clue for a hidden immunity idol.
As others are struggling with their guesses for the immunity, the Ticino tribe is struggling with its inactive members. This inactivity resulted in the tribe losing the inaugural immunity challenge.
Lucerne won both immunity and reward. As a result they have to send someone to Exile Mountain.
The Bromosexual Alliance, an inter-tribe alliance composed of Jino, Matt, Ian and Andrew has an initial plan to send one of their own. Ian, thinking that it might blow up their alliance, convinced Matt and Jino to send Skandi instead. This makes Skandi the first person to be exiled.
At Lucerne Camp, Cal and Wojtek invited Jino as a third member of their alliance. Though he's already in an alliance with Matt and Jad, he still was being skeptical because of Jad's quietness.
At Tribal Council, the question of inactive members and Ulonging is in the air. When the votes are read, there's a tie between Julie and Andrew 2-2-1. At the revote Julie was voted out making her the first person out of Switzerland in a 5-0 vote.
