[16 people can be seen walking through the deep, grassy terrain of Botswana. Eventually, they come up to a solid, black line, which they all stand on as they await the greetings of the greatest host of all time, DH]
DH: Behind me is Chapman's Baobab. This tree has been around for more than 1000 years, and is truly a symbol of this country. This tree serves as many different purposes, including a home for many wildlife as I am sure you can see. Let this be a symbol of the next 24 days. This country will be your tree - you will live in it, endure all weather, and fight for survival. Whether this tree means anything or not, that's for you to decide, but it's time to get this show on the road.
Now, the 16 of you will randomly be divided into 2 tribes of 8. I want each of you to reach your hand into the pot, and without looking, pull out a buff. If you pull out a red buff, please join the red mat. If you pull out a yellow buff, please join the yellow mat.
[Everybody pulls a buff and joins their mats respectively]

Enjoy the rest of the day as you find your camp, build a shelter, and do everything essential to survive the next 24 days.
Good luck and let the games begin.
