The game of "Survivor" is afoot once again, with sixteen new competitors — and two familiar ones — setting sail to the "South Pacific" in last night’s premiere of what's sure to be a cutthroat and hungry journey for the million dollar prize. Already we've met an eclectic cast that includes a medical marijuana dispenser, a spoken word artist, the nephew of one of the game's most notorious players, two returning alumni and a self-described "student of the game" who very nearly flunked out during the very first exam.
So what's going down on the new season of "Survivor"? How did Coach and Ozzy do? Who broke down and cried first? Which contestant gave us the most awkward description of human flesh possible? We've got all that and more in our "Survivor" recap after the jump!

Jon Dalton, 37, a.k.a. Jonny Fairplay, one of the most hated "Survivor" villains in the history of the show, tells TMZ that his wife Michelle Deighton has left him and taken their daughter with her. He says Michelle left him a couple weeks ago and just said it was because she doesn't want to be with him anymore.

Deighton was a contestant on the fourth cycle of "America's Next Top Model," where she finished sixth. Dalton, in addition to his "Survivor" infamy for lying about his grandmother's death, has been a professional wrestler since 1998.

Kyle Kalember: Since it was impossible for Kristina to get voted out with her idol I'll have to say Phillip. Now Kristina would have been my preference due to her idiotic sorta-play of the idol to get rid of Rob, but Phillip is crazy. At least he isn't "I want to turn off the TV because you make me ill" crazy. Rob's one-liner was enough to make the Phillip experience worth it to me. If he gives Rob more ammunition for great comedy then you can sign me up.

A report suggests that Jon Dalton, aka Jonny Fairplay, will return to Survivor during one of next year's seasons, something Dalton himself alluded to about year ago.
