Over the spring of 2000, sixteen average Americans (divided into two tribes which eventually merge into one) were sequestered on the deserted island of Pulau Tiga for 39 days. For their stay, they must learn to live as a tribe, although eventually, it is everyone for themselves. They compete in challenges for "luxuries" (a barbecue, a phone call home, etc.) and immunity. Every three days, the losers of the latter challenges must face tribal council, where they will account for their actions by voting one person off of the island. At the end of day 39, there will be only one survivor left who will leave the island with one million dollars. Based on the Swedish game show, "Operation Robinson." Written by
The tenth season of Survivor, Palau, set a lot of records. (Note: these applied to the series Survivor at the point when the tenth season aired, some may or may not still apply): 1) First time there were 20 contestants at the start of the game 2) First time that 2 survivors never got a chance to play the game 3) First time that a tribe did not win a single immunity challenge 4) First tribe of one 5) First time there was no merge (the final tribe was still known as Koror even after Stephenie joined) 6) Greatest number of ties at tribal councils 7) Longest Challenge in Survivor history (final immunity challenge, lasted 11 hours) 8) First tribal council held at a challenge (final immunity challenge) See more »
Yup... that's right, Survivor is the best reality show i've seen till date, and i was quite surprised it didn't feature in this year's Emmy Awards Nominations. I read in one of the above comments that Survivor's odd numbered seasons are usually not that good, i wanna say that i don't agree at all! Coz, Survivor 17: Gabon, was simply awesome... and i'm just starting season 19, i.e. Samoan, and its looking cool as well. The best thing in Survivor is the picturisation, the natural scenery, the diverse cast, and last but not the least Emmy Award winner and this year's nominee for best host : Jeff Barrot...
Its a must watch for all reality show addicts..
