Castaways embark on the most grueling 39 days in Survivor history and test whether brute strength, looks or smarts will be the attribute that helps capture the title of Sole Survivor. Also, one castaway deals with excruciating pain when a bug gets stuck in their ear.
Last week on the very first episode of Season 32 Darnel of the Brawn tribe was the 1st survivor to be voted out of the game who will be the next to go home?

For the first time ever, two Immunity Idols can join forces to become one super idol that can be used after the votes are read. Also, one castaway gets crafty in order to retrieve an idol and another castaway on an opposing tribe may have a bounty on their head if they can't find an idol.
The brutal heat of Kaoh Rong takes a toll on several castaways, and one is medically evacuated from of the game.
A swap changes game plans and one unlucky player is sent to camp by themselves. And after a castaway reveals they have the hidden immunity idol, things become uncertain at tribal council.
A hearty food reward is up for grabs at a classic challenge. Also, the pressure is on when one castaway interrogates a fellow tribemate.
A tribe merge reshuffles the game and its alliances. Also, a brutal individual Immunity Challenge keeps castaways on their toes.
The merge creates a power struggle between the remaining members of the Brawn and Beauty tribes. Also, rumors of an all-girl alliance cause problems for one castaway.
A separation in tribes leads to the ultimate sabotage. Also, a schoolyard pick draws a line in the sand at a tough Reward Challenge.
A surprising turn of events at Tribal Council sends shock waves through the entire tribe. Also, castaways must choose between food, love or an advantage in the game.
One castaway holds the key to individual immunity and guarantees themselves a shot at the final six. Also, after a shocking tribal council, a fractured alliance may not be able to be restored.
A combination of balance and teamwork will earn some castaways a much-needed reward. Also, one castaway is under fire after bossing others around.
One castaway struggles to overcome feeling betrayed by their strongest ally. Also, an indulging reward might wreak havoc on one castaway.
The remaining castaways fight for a game-changing reward to help determine their fate. Then, after 39 intense days of one of the toughest seasons in Survivor history, one castaway will be crowned Sole Survivor and awarded the Million prize, on the two-hour season finale.
