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
Melissa McNulty, a 28-year-old talent manager from West Hollywood, was set to be a contestant on Survivor's fourteenth season, "Survivor: Fiji," but due to massive panic attacks she withdrew from the game the night before filming was to begin. As there was no time to find a replacement, "Survivor: Fiji" became the first season of Survivor to start with an odd number of contestants. See more »
CBS hit it big with this show. "Survivor" was the best show of Summer 2000, probably the best show of 2000 all together. It was all anyone was talking about. I never missed an episode and each week was amazing! There were twists and turn at every end, you had no idea who was going to get voted off or win the million! The show is so great, from the games, to the interviews, to the voting, which was always the best! An amazing show that will go down in television history! I can't wait for Survivor II.
