Storyline

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

User Reviews

Fresh and Exciting..One of the best editions of Survivor Yet.
31 October 2003 | by (Southern California) – See all my reviews

For some reason it seems that the odd numbered survivor seasons aren't as good (Except for Season 1 of course). Example: Africa- The scenery was boring and some of the cast was interesting but overall it wasn't anything great. Thailand- Probably the worst ever. The location was good but the cast was the worst yet. But FINALLY that curse has ended because PEARL ISLANDS is Great.

First off- the location is perfect. I really like the pirate theme, its one that hasn't been used yet and it works.

Secondly the cast is awesome. Rupert is one of my all-time favorite Survivors. He's Richard Hatch with a heart. Osten is something else, a lazy guy with a good personality. Jon is a pain-in-the-ass and probably the most annoying Survivor since Lindsey on Survivor 3. Jon is so smug, but he does make the game interesting, even though you want to strangle him.

Overall- This is the only really watchable Reality Show in my opinion and Mark Burnett is really talented. He changes things every week so people don't get sick of it. Can't wait for season 8!! ALL STARS!

Thanks For Reading-
