Advertisements I'm amazed at how strong this season has started, fun factor wise. Much as I was not in favor of Rob & Russel returning, it is working. Anyway, great blindside and for pretty good reasons. Loving it! As I guessed, the first challenge at Redemption Island will be next week. I think it'll start the episode and with tribal will be the bookends for each week for the next 5 or 6 weeks. I'm wondering if the tribes will get to witness.
