As twenty castaways row one large boat through the waters surrounding Palau, host Jeff Probst points them towards their new beach and indicates there will be two machetes and a map to water waiting for them. In addition, he indicates there will be two Immunity necklaces for the first man and the first woman to reach shore. With that, Probst departs and the anticipation and panic sets in. Who will stay in the boat? Who will be first to jump? Who will win Immunity? By the end of the first episode, three castaways will leave the island.
