Survivor - Blood vs. Water began with the contestants getting to spend some romantic time alone with their loved ones on the first night before breaking into tribes.
Being the girl in the relationship apparently outweighs being a returning player, as Colton let his boyfriend Caleb build their temporary shelter.
And when Colton rhetorically asked, "Would you like want me to do something?", Caleb grumbled something along the lines of, "No, you're good," before he wandered off into the jungle to text an ex-boyfriend.

Upon meeting up with Jeff Probst, the contestants were informed that they would not actually be playing with their loved ones, but would instead be playing against them and dividing into tribes based upon "returning" (Galang) and "new" (Tadhana) players.
After Colton got done crying, Jeff delivered one more twist...That each tribe would have to immediately vote one person out.
And for some reason, Galang decided to vote out Candice instead of Colton, which made absolutely no sense given that Colton not only had a reputation of being a backstabber, but also as being a total bitch around camp from a social standpoint.
The new players voted out Laura, Rupert's wife, not on Rupert's reputation, but because she was old.
However, Jeff had a few more twists for the tribes. First, he announced that Candice and Laura would not be heading home, but to Redemption Island, which was back in play this season.
Jeff also gave the loved one of each person voted out the opportunity to switch places, meaning that they'd also be forced to change tribes if they decided to save their significant other.
While Rupert didn't hesitate to take his wife's spot on Redemption Island, wanting to make sure she got a chance to experience the game, Candice's husband was not quite as chivalrous, declining to change places and selfishly saying, "I think I'm going to give her the opportunity to beat Rupert."
