-The article starts by saying that while they were there (TV Guide) Christa and Rupert killed a pelican (hoping to eat it). Christa hit it with a rock and Rupert snapped it's neck. The producers hadn't decided whether the footage would make it onto the show.
-The big lie: Burnett instructs the players to dress for a dinner party, then makes them jump overboard with nothing but the clothes on their backs. They then have to swim a half mile to an island village where each tribe is given 100 balboa (about $100) to buy supplies. Drake buys chickens, beans and rice, and four jugs of wine, but no bug repellent, leading to the tribe being ate up with mosquitoes by the next morning.
-Tempers flare at Morgan about "loyalty"
-There is an "earth shattering, mind numbing" twist at the halfway point (so sayeth EPMB)
-There will be a lot of male nudity because...
-No one buys any beach clothing at the island village and they have to make due with what they have. Christa gives the bottom of her skirt to Rupert who uses it as a towel-like device that he wraps around his waist (the article mentions that he has nothing on underneath, which one producer calls, "kind of sickening").
-During the first challenge (hauling heavy cannons over a 300 yard course), most of the guys are stripped to their boxers and during the muddy portion of the course most all of them lose their undies. Probst says, "No matter how you look at it, guys look stupid naked."
-At the end it mentions that the Drake Tribe is about to cook up the pelican when the producers have to step in and warn them that pelicans are known for carrying parasites. Leading to them throwing the bird away.
There's a pic of the tribes pulling the cannons, with Morgan in the lead, and (what looks like) Andrew without his underpants (there is a red "X" covering up his bits and pieces).
They also have the little blurbs about each contestant, but nothing really stands out...

That's about it.
