|1||"Amen" - Evan|
4 jeeps roar down Guyana's jungle dirt roads, each carrying 4 contestants. The 16 people meet for the first time as they exit the vehichles. Jeff Probst welcomes them to Survivor: Guyana, and reveals that this isn't any regular season of Survivor - It's Battle of the Sexes.
Girls Tribe: Lindsey, Britney, Amy Jo, Kim, Kelly, Justine, Elisabeth, Andrea
Guys Tribe: Zach, Tony, Evan, Jonas, River, Moe, Silas, Ryan.
(Guys) Arriving to camp, the guys are elated. In his first confessional, Moe reveals that he doesn't want to sound like he's stereotyping but that he thinks he guys will be able to pumble the girls due to the difference in strength. River initiates a tribe huddle before they start working on their shelter in order to create tribe unity. Evan uses this moment to start a group prayer, which rubs Silas, who is openly gay, the wrong way. Silas vents in private that he thought it was inappropriate and he was uncomfortable. While things get started around camp, Evan initiates an alliance between himself, Silas, Jonas, and Tony. Silas finds the combination unusual, and doubts it'll last.
At the girls camp, Lindsey is verbally very excited about embarking on the experience of Survivor. Amy Jo quickly asserts herself as the tribe leader, insisting that she knows what to do. In a confessional Amy Jo reveals that she grew up on a farm her entire life, and that when it comes to building shelters, hunting, fishing, and camping, she just knows what she's talking about. Britney is more than okay with letting Amy Jo take the leader position as it puts a target on her back. Elisabeth and Andrea whisper to each other about how Amy Jo is already digging herself a grave. After sending a majority of the team into the woods for supplies, Amy Jo approaches Britney and Kim to solidify a deal. The two agree. Britney reveals that having a character like Amy Jo on her side is smarter than having her against. Kim doesn't trust Amy Jo.
Guys win Immunity! and 50 waterproof matches.
Amy Jo gives the team a pep talk, and assures them that next time things will go better. While fetching water Kelly and Justine talk about the vote. They know Amy Jo is the obvious choice, but say that she keeps a target off their backs, and that she does help around camp. Justine voices her opinions that Andrea doesn't do enough around camp, and that she wouldn't be missed. Kelly says she is okay with that decision and shakes Justine's hand on the idea. Elisabeth, Andrea, and Lindsey are talking strategy in the shelter. They feel that Justine lost the challenge on them, and that she should go. Justine walks up to Kim and Britney about voting to eliminate Andrea. Kim and Britney say that they are okay with the decision, and also tell Justine that they can swing Amy Jo to vote with them, guaranteeing majority. However at the same time, Lindsey goes to Amy Jo with the idea of voting out Justine. Amy Jo shakes with Lindsey on it. Later on Kim talks to Amy Jo about the plan, which catches her off guard. Amy Jo expresses she refuses to go back on her handshake, and suggests Kim and Britney flip. Kim doesn't agree. Kim voices that the smartest thing would be to take out Andrea, and that she hopes Amy Jo will flip. At Tribal Council there is a 4-4 tie between Andrea and Justine, both are caught off guard. The girls are forced to draw rocks. Britney is eliminated.
|2||"Holy Moly" - Justine|
Lindsey perclaims out of all the seasons of Survivor she has seen, that, that has to be the craziest first Tribal ever. Andrea and Justine both laugh it off and high five. In passing Kim shoots Amy Jo a look as if to say 'this isn't good', to which Amy Jo lipped the words "this sucks" back to her. Later on Andrea sits with Kelly and tells her she knows she voted against her. Andrea tells her that there's no hard feelings, and just wishes to know as to why she was voted for. Kelly is honest with Andrea and tells her that some people feel as though she's lazy around camp. In a confessional Andrea voices that she disagrees, but in a game like this has to listen to opinions. Andrea vowes that starting the next morning she will become a work horse. Kim and Amy Jo regroup, they know they need a third member again to be able to have any power in the game. They pull in Andrea.
At the Guys camp, the men spend a lot of time discussing the women. Ryan jokingly says he hopes they vote out some of the older girls so they have more to look at. These comments make both Evan and Silas feel uncomfortable, which they both talk about together on the beach. In a confessional Evan says it's funny, and that even though they don't see eye to eye on some things that they have more in common than one would think originally. River, being the tribes athlete, creates his very own sports game out of boredom. Coconut call requires half a coconut shell, in which you have to get over your oponents line in the sand to score. While playing Tony suffers an injury. His toe curls under his foot as he steps down and he breaks it. While he is in pain, the medics are able to bandage him up without pulling him from the game. Tony voices in a confessional his relief to be in an alliance that has his back. This ally Silas however has this to say, "If it helps the tribe, and gets me closer to the million, he'll have to go".

Returning to camp, Amy Jo, Andrea, and Kim are quick to run off together. After two consecuatively poor performances in the challenges, they feel it's Justine's turn to go home. Knowing that they need only one more vote, Andrea says that she'll talk to Elisabeth. Elisabeth insists that she doesn't trust Amy Jo, but that she will vote with them. Kelly see's the two talking and decides to sneak into some nearby bushes to listen. Kelly steps on and snaps some twigs, causing her to alert Andrea and Elisabeth's attention. They look in her direction and walk away. Kelly is unsure if she has been seen. Andrea and Elisabeth did, and Elisabeth is now insistant that they vote for Kelly. Andrea relays the information back to Amy Jo and Kim. Amy Jo jumps on board with voting out Kelly as she may know about the alliance. At Tribal there is yet another tie.

|3||"Absolute Craziness" - Andrea|
Returning to camp is utter caos. Andrea reveals that herself and Kim and swapped votes causing the tie. Explaining that Andrea loved the hectic nature after the last tie, and thought it would better her game to have it once again happen, especially with her name not involved in the tie. Andrea says due to Kim's slight distrust in Amy Jo, it was easy to convince her to swap for a little fun. In a confessional Kim says that she likes that Andrea's here to cause trouble, and that she also took part as a way to stick it to Amy Jo. Lindsey is confused, and can't even begin to understand what happened. She's even more confused as to why she recieved a vote. Amy Jo quickly pulls Kim to the side and says she thinks it was Andrea and Elisabeth to flipped for the first half of the vote, and that she doesn't understand why they both voted differently. In private Amy Jo says she always had bad feelings about Elisabeth, and that this event confirms they cannot work together. Andrea laughs about the condition of the camp, as it all came from herself convincing Kim to intentionally cause a tie for part 1 of the vote. Andrea says they never once planned to divert from the original plan to eliminate Kelly, and that she just wanted to stir the pot to take eyes off herself. Kim says she never imagined it working this well.
At the guys camp, Tony has been staying in the shelter as much as possible. Silas expresses his surprise that they were able to beat the women with Tony's injury as a factor. Evan tries to claim it's due to the power of prayer. Silas and Evan seem to have an odd friendship growing, which Silas refers to Evan as his 'frenemy'. As they are very different from one another, but still feel the same way on a lot of things, especially as it pertains to the game. Moe joins Tony in the shelter, and wishes him the best luck in the upcoming challenge. Moe tells Tony that he feels as though they should have each others backs. Tony agrees. Moe says if they lose a challenge it's likely Tony would leave, and that Moe would follow right after. In a confessional Moe says he knows how the game works, the younger fit contestants ban against the older ones. Moe doesn't want to follow the trend, and wants to come from behind and surprise all the "young buck" on his team.

Justine knows she in trouble. This is the third challenge in a row she has lost for her team. In a confessional she says she knows she cannot keep losing these challenges and expect that her tribemates will vote other people off.

Justine is voted off the island.
|4||"At Least We Got It On The First Try" - Amy Jo|
The girls joke about how they finally accomplished their first Tribal Council without a tie. Andrea says in a confessional that if they were to lose another challenge that Amy Jo would likely be the one to go home. Lindsey doesn't know where she stands in the game, and claims to feel as though she's an extra in a movie. Lindsey doesn't feel as though she has any strong ties to anybody, but also feels as though Amy Jo has rubbed enough people the wrong way that she could survive at least one more vote. Elisabeth, Andrea, and Kim talk in the forrest before heading to bed for the night. They have a 3 strong majority alliance, and hope to help each other make it as far as they can. Elisabeth likes where she is at the moment. Elisabeth says that within her majority alliance she knows that her and Andrea would have each others backs before Kim's and that she's confident.
(Boys) Jonas, Zach, and Ryan have started to become quick friends. The three hadn't really associated too much within the first bit of the game, but recently have taken to each other. At this point, that leaves Moe on the males team as the only guy without a strong connection. Evan, Silas, Jonas, and Tony meet to discuss the possibilty of throwing a challenge. They know they have the numbers to overthrow the girls come the merge, and if they were to vote out either Zach, Moe, Ryan, or River they'd hold the majority to make final 4. Upon disbanding Tony instructs Silas and Evan to rejoin him, and he voices his concern about how close Jonas has been getting with Zach and Ryan. Tony says if they vote out one of those two boys, it could work out very well for them. Tony tells them that Moe has been getting friendly with him, and that Tony could probably manipulate Moe to vote with them.

|6||"First Time For Everything" - Kim|
Returning to camp Lindsey and Amy Jo had hugs for all. Both were extremely thankful that the boys had kept them. In a confessional Amy Jo explains it was the best thing to do, as the boys wouldn't have voted out any of their own members. Lindsey is thankful that Amy Jo had enough trust within her to go back on her word with Andrea. However Lindsey reveals she wont be afraid to backstab Amy Jo as this could be the key to finally having a secure alliancein the game. Tony and Moe whisper in the shelter about Amy Jo. Moe is worried about her, and reveals to Tony that he gets the impression that she is smarter than they take her for. Tony agrees that he sees what he does. Tony takes the chance to throw her under the bus saying with merge coming it would be smart to take her out as she is a physical threat. Tony is feeling incredibly good at this moment as he is almost guaranteed to go far since once they merge, his broken toe will deminish his threatening persona.
At the Beige tribe Kim is trying to prove her worth. She loved the feeling of finally winning a challenge, but knows that if her team was to lose another challenge, she'd be in trouble. River and Kim have been spending a lot of time together, and Jonas doesn't like it. River admits that he finds Kim to be an attractive girl, but that he's going to think with the head that's attached to his shoulders. Kim however is trying to get him to use his other one.
