Australian Survivor season 1 episodes list:
Sixteen Australians travel blindfolded on a bus to Whaler's Way, where host Lincoln Howes divides them into two tribes based on the colour of their blindfolds, uses the toss of a coin to decide which tribe gets to choose where they camp, and directs them to maps that give them directions to the camps where they have to build shelters and spend the next thirty-nine days surviving each other.
The rugged coastline reveals its playful side. An accident at the Tipara camp could mean an early end for one survivor. Kadina realise that tribe harmony is hard to sustain.
Harsh conditions get tempers simmering. The axe starts to fall on some tribe friendships.
The remaining five Kadina members expressed their desperation to win an immunity challenge, in fear of being picked off one by one by the Tipara tribe at the merge.
The day after their first tribal council, Joel was emotionally upset after voting out Jeff from the Tipara tribe and was regretting his decision to not vote out Jane.
Sylvan approached Caren and informed her that he did vote for her and to apologise. Caren told him that she knew he voted for her, which caused Sylvan to suspect that there was an alliance consisting of Caren, Naomi and Craig.
The morning after voting out Sylvan, Naomi and Caren were praying for a merge, and suspecting it would happen on this day. After receiving tree mail, both tribes were told to gather everything they wanted and leave in five minutes. The Tipara and Kadina tribes were no longer, and Aurora was formed. The new tribe hiked to their new camp, picking up belongings on the way, like fruits, nuts and arriving at their new camp with fresh water and a hot shower.
At camp Aurora, Rob was paranoid about the one vote cast against him at the previous tribal council. Questioning who it was, he assumed that it was a member of the old Kadina tribe, but remained wary that it could well be one of the Tipara seven. Sciona expressed her frustration at people taking too long to wake up in the morning and get ready to go fishing, mainly Jane, while Katie also stated that Jane was useless and was just there looking pretty.
Both Craig and Jane caused controversy and ruffled feathers at Aurora. Katie was specifically vocal about her distaste of Jane being on the show, stating that she didn't think she represented a good image for the show and that she was always complaining and lazy. Katie was also vocal about Craig being in the game and called him a "weasel" and an "asshole" and said that she wouldn't be able to contain her excitement when he was voted off.
Sophie expressed her disdain for Katie, calling her sneaky and untrustworthy. Katie did some damage control the day after tribal with Rob and tried to make sure they were still in a tight bond. Rob forgave Katie but remained doubtful.
Survivors had to move five life rings along a rope cluttered with driftwood and other debris. The winner got to webcam their loved ones for fifteen minutes, while the losers got to text their loved ones instead.
The morning after Jane was voted off, Katie and Sophie discussed how they were going to further themselves in the game, and were shocked and surprised at Sciona and Rob flipping on their alliance. Sciona later lied to Sophie's face and told her that their alliance of four still stood strong and Joel would be the next to go.
After returning to camp after Sophie being voted out, Katie who was visibly overwhelmed, immediately attacked Rob verbally, calling him a "gutless wonder", "dishonest" and "dumb as dog shit". The next day, Katie apologised to Sciona, Rob and Joel for her comments from the previous night, only to get into another verbal disagreement with Rob.
