We’re less than a week away from the big 90-minute premiere of Survivor: South Pacific — the 23rd edition of the hit reality show. CBS has now released a batch of new photos from the first episode — including images from the first challenge and the moment in which Ozzy and Coach randomly select their tribes (pictured above). There’s also a terribly goofy picture of Ozzy (see inside the article) in his tie-dye underwear! Did he consult Rupert Boneham before hitting the island? Read more to see several other teaser pics!
For the first time in the last several years, the first Immunity challenge on Survivor: South Pacific will not feature a puzzle. You can see in the images below both tribes — Savaii (red) and Upolu (blue) — battling it out for safety from the first Tribal Council.
Another shot of the first challenge:
Some of the images released also showcase the tribes at their respective camps. Here’s a shot of Ozzy returning to his Mowgli-like ways by climbing a tree at Savaii:
Some of the other Savaii tribe members spending some time in the water:
Then over at Upolu, seven of the eight tribe members are shown sitting around having a chat. Think Brandon is telling everybody that he’s Russell’s nephew?
As for Ozzy and that underwear picture, have a look… Weird, huh?
Catch the season premiere of Survivor: South Pacific on Wednesday, September 14 at 8 p.m. The battle begins as 16 new castaways meet Coach and Ozzy as they both return to the game for their third shot at the $1 million prize.
