Stranded on an island off the coast of Panama, this group of Survivors faces a new and rather ominous challenge: Exile Island. Each week, at least one castaway is banished to live alone in this place. While being separated from the tribe is not necessarily desirable, the Survivors learn that there is a hidden Immunity Idol somewhere on the island. If found, this Immunity Idol could save whoever retrieves it from being voted out at a future Tribal Council.
The 16 castaways are divided into four tribes of four: Older Men, Older Women, Younger Men and Younger Women. This season, at least one Survivor each episode is banished to a separate island miles away from camp. But that's not all bad: there's a hidden Immunity Idol somewhere on Exile Island.
When four tribes become two, the last Survivor fears the worst, but then is surprised when Jeff reveals a twist in the game. One castaway makes a major mistake and leaves the tribe disappointed and hungry. The Survivors waste no time forming alliances, leaving two feeling vulnerable and another two in a position of power.
Every night is miserable for the next Survivor sent to Exile Island. One Survivor proves to be an All-Star at the Reward Challenge, securing a major win for a starving tribe. Bickering starts early for one tribe and leaves some members wondering about forming premature alliances.
In a surprising turn of events, a banished Survivor thrives on Exile Island, leaving the tribe back at camp struggling for food and fire. Constant bickering between tribemates leaves one Survivor regretting an alliance with a bunch of lunatics.
A couple of Survivors secretly bond when they selfishly share one of the Reward prizes and anger their tribemates. Two Survivors fall ill, keeping them up all night and leaving them drained right before the Immunity Challenge. It's a long afternoon for one tribe as chaos and confusion hampers the decision of who to vote off.
Disunity among one tribe results in no sleep for the group, as one Survivor's continuous outbursts last throughout the night. A strong tribe is weakening from the lack of food and water, but finds strength in relationships they are forming on the island. For one castaway, being sent to Exile Island is a blessing rather than a curse.
