16 average Americans are marooned on the deserted island of Puala Tiga in the South China Sea for 39 days, where they must survive not only the island, but each other, as every three days, one person is voted off. The 16 are split in to two tribes of 8. Tagi consists of Dirk, Kelly, Richard, Rudy, Sean, Sonja, Stacey and Susan. Pagong consists of BB, Colleen, Gervase, Greg, Gretchen, Jenna, Joel and Ramoana. In the first 3 days, the tribes get to know each other, and while BB's domineering attitude annoys some of his tribemates, Richard also begins to get on the nerves of the Tagi camp as he attempts to lead them in a group direction. When Pagong won the first Immunity Challenge (a competition), Tagi had to go to Tribal Council, where they must vote someone off of the island. Despite Stacey's attempts to form a female alliance against 72-year-old Rudy, it was Sonja Christopher who was voted off of the island with 4 of the 8 votes. The tribe has spoken.

Pagong are growing weary of BB's bossy and domineering attitude, and as Greg and Colleen begin to get friendly, the crabby 60-something clashes with Ramoana and Joel. Meanwhile, at the Tagi camp, Stacey and Rudy's personality clashes are getting worse, but Rudy does have a fond admiration for gay islander Richard. Tagi works as a team and prevails in the second Immunity Challenge, where they must eat live bugs, mostly due to Stacey, who competed with Gervase in a tiebreaker round. BB's fate was sealed when he used the tribe's only supply of clean water to wash his clothes, and when it came to Tribal Council, BB Anderson was voted off of the island. The tribe has spoken.

At Pagong, Greg and Colleen continue to grow closer as the younger tribe members begin to grow more accustom to their island home. Meanwhile, across the island at Tagi camp, Stacey's raw attitude continued to annoy the rest of her tribemates, especially the elder members. While both tribes were on the verge of running out of rice, Tagi won a reward challenge giving them fishing equipment., leaving Pagong's only hope to eat the island's selection of rats. At the immunity challenge, a last minute decision to switch a weak Jenna into an athletic part of the challenge could have proven detrimental, but Pagong pulled through in the end. At tribal council, Stacey tried to shake things up by trying to recruit some of the older members to vote off Rudy, but in the end, only Kelly stayed loyal, and a surprised Stacey was voted off. The tribe has spoken.

Then, the three remaining Survivors had to take a ceremonious walk past the extinguished torches of their old tribemates, and take part in an endurance challenge that pushed them to their limit. Kelly won Immunity for the second time and, with the sole vote cast at Tribal Council, voted Rudy off of the island, and propelled herself and Richard in to the final two.
