Complete series cast summary:
 Himself - Host (460 episodes, 2000-2015)


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 ZeroG1

Did You Know?


Mark Burnett wanted the Tribal Council to feel like it was a ritual that had been going on for thousands of years. However, some small features of the Tribal Council ceremony disappeared after the first season. The gong that the Survivors would ring upon entering or exiting the Tribal Council area was canned because it was, in the words of host 'Jeff Probst (I)', "corny." The first Tribal Council set also featured a treasure chest full of fake dollar bills. In one of the early episodes of season 1, the Survivors passed around a conch shell and took turns talking. The person holding the shell would be the one speaking, and when he or she was done, he or she would pass the shell to the next person. Probst disapproved of this method of moderating Tribal Council because he felt that he didn't have anything to do other than sit and listen, and the conch shell was never seen again after this episode.

Survivor... the best reality show ever!
19 September 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

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..
