Each of the Long Island contestants on reality-TV competitions Wednesday night survived her respective show's premiere.

On the opener of CBS' "Survivor" season 41, Plainview middle school teacher Tiffany Seely, 47, continued on while Texas cybersecurity analyst Eric Abraham, 51, and Boston health care consultant Sara Wilson, 24, were voted off the island.

On the first night of the two-night series premiere of Fox's "Alter Ego," in which 20 singers perform as motion-capture CGI avatars, Glen Head's Samaera Hirsch, 21, sang Dua Lipa's "Levitating." Though she landed in the evening's bottom two slots, Tulane University student Hirsch — misidentified in an on-screen graphic as being from Holbrook, some 30 miles from Glen Head — outlasted Floridian and former New Yorker Erny Nunez to remain in the competition.
