First eliminated castaway
The Brawn Tribe knew who was on the chopping block the instant they brought their torches to Tribal: Darnell, the goggle-dropping diver, and Alecia the puzzle non-solver.
Darnell seemed to pull at everyone's "empathy strings" when he gave an emotional speech about always fighting his way through life. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to get their final votes. After an initial tie, the group recast their votes and, in the end, Darnell was the first castaway of Survivor: Kaoh Rong to get snuffed.
As host Jeff Probst reminded the remaining castaways, "If you’re gonna talk the talk, you better be able to walk the walk."
