CLASHED: The 20 contestants on CBS's Survivor: Palau were quickly whittled down to just 17 on Thursday night's premiere episode. The castaways had just become acquainted with their new surroundings when host Jeff Probst said the initial immunity challenge won by Jolanda Jones and Ian Rosenberger (who were the first of the 20 to swim ashore) would last only 10 minutes, until they finished picking their two tribes. The last woman and man chosen, Wanda Shirk and Jonathan Libby, were eliminated from the show. The game's first challenge then pitted the Koror and Ulong teams against each other for team immunity, leaving Ulong to vote off a player. That ended up being Jolanda, in a 6-3 decision. Her parting words: "I am the oldest and I think differently than my tribe. It's an experience I think everyone should try."

It just wouldn't be a party without Paris Hilton. Luckily, she has already made the trek to Miami, where the pre-MTV Video Music Awards celebrations are under way. Monday night our spies spotted her dining in the VIP room at Tantra with Randy Spelling (Tori's little brother). The next night, she showed up at the weekly "Simple Tuesday" party at Mansion with pal Simon Rex (Scary Movie 3). The pink-clad Simple Life star, perched at a table with Rex underneath the DJ booth, went unnoticed by the crowd until she got up at around 12:30 a.m. and walked to a back room. When she returned, the crowd had grown, so Hilton pushed a couple of tables together to better separate her crew from the locals. She spent most of the night fiddling with her two-way pager, and both she and Rex indulged in cigarettes and lollipops at different times. Stay tuned for more from Miami ...
