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 Australian Outback is a great place to put sixteen contestants, vying for a million dollars, to be. I mean, the place with the top ten most deadly snakes. That's good. This one is the same as the first with different people and setting. Michael could've won if he didn't get burned. He definitely had a shot.
Overall the show is better than the first in many ways and I enjoyed this. Rating ***1/2 out of ****.
