Don't have as much time as I'd like to have to do a proper SOTS opener/season.
However, I kinda feel naked without one, so...
Tribes are brought to a beach.
JP hands out buffs.
Tribes scramble for supplies.
And some sort of choice is given as well.
Tribes walk to their respective camps.
...Storms on first night are concerning, specially since a bigger one is on the way.
On day 2... Cyclone Zena, causes a survivor first.
The storm approaches
Wind picking up
"The storm caught us. It was only day two and in a matter of hours, a nice afternoon turned into a severe rainstorm that kept growing in intensity by the hour. We were monitoring the weather minute by minute back at base camp. When the national Fijian weather service upgraded it to a cyclone, we had to evacuate both tribes from their beaches and get them to safety. We have never had to evacuate tribes in 32 seasons of Survivor."

Skipping intros and all the preseason get-to-know-gobbledygook...
I move right to episode 2 to figure out the rest of episode 1.
Seen clear as day (and then subsequently edited out of future promos) Hannah is seen sitting out during the ep2 IC.
Plain and simple meaning of this is...
Millenials won IC1.
GenX went to TC1.
A GenXer was booted in episode 1.
GenXer Ep2 IC participants (that we've seen) are... Paul | Chris | Cici | Ken | Sunday | David
I see Lucy with fins.
Which could have been part of the initial starting scramble for supplies OR is more likely a future episodes reward offering.
This all leads to either... Rachel, Brett or Jessica as our Ep1 Bootee.
Also of note is the timestamp deductions that were found via Reddit...
Claiming that some of the press images of Paul, Ken, Lucy and Rachel (and Chris' arm) were all taken on day 8.
This implies, greatly, that Rachel is also safe from bootation in episode 1.
From this point, both remaining choices appear to be in danger.
Brett is abrasive and judgemental.
Jessica is awkward and out-of-place.
At least on paper.
My vote is...
