Episode 2: Just One Stick of Lucky Strike
LAST WEEK on Survivor Pangasinan
Sixteen castaways were divided into two tribes, the Backpackers became the Malabobo Tribe and their Loved Ones became the Amorong Tribe. Amorong Tribe won the first Reward Challenge and a chance for individual immunity. Erwin of Amorong Tribe won immunity necklace and in a surprising twist, he won a second one for his Loved One, Rexie of Malabobo Tribe. These Immunity Necklaces can only be used in the first tribal council participated by their respective tribes. At Malabobo Tribe, Leah formed an alliance with DeePee and Rexie. Malabobo Tribe won the first Immunity Challenge making Amorong puzzle solvers Sheryl, Chino and Ryan vulnerable of being voted out first because of their weak performance in the challenge. Sheryl pitched in to the group to vote out the youngest people in the tribe first. The tribe seemed to follow Sheryl's lead, and in the first Tribal Council, JOSH SALTIVAN was ousted in a 5-3 vote against Joyjoy. He is the first person voted out of the game. Fifteen are left, who will be voted out next?
After Josh's exit, the Amorong tribe were called just outside the tribal council area for the season's second reward challenge. Joyjoy narrowly escaped tribal council. In an interview, she confessed, "I was very nervous when my name was mentioned at tribal council. It was a very scary feeling. I did not want to be the first one out. Luckily, it was Josh and not me."
