What to expect on 'Survivor' Season 43 Episode 1 premiere?

As per host Jeff, Season 43 of 'Survivor' is unlike its previous seasons. The cast is aware of the hurdles faced by last season's contestants, something the show has not previously done. Yet, the show will still be with plenty of unknown challenges and the players are bound to ponder every second of every day. Another notable factor is the removal of some challenges, such as the controversial Hourglass and Do or Die twists this season. Challenges like Shot in the Dark, Risk vs Reward, and Earn the Merge will still be a part of the series.

The cast will be split into three tribes, the Baka, Coco and Vesi, each signified by the colors yellow, blue and red, respectively. According to Jeff, it will be "26 days, no food, very few supplies, penalties for losing, and small tribes, which I think is still a thing that's being worked out by the players." He also stated that there would be some players the viewers are bound to find funny and some savvy players to root for during the series. The fans are looking forward to making their acquaintance with all the players.
