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

The fourth entry into the highly popular "SURVIVOR" series is shaping up to be the best one yet!
28 February 2002 | by Aussie StudSee all my reviews

After the disappointing and lackluster "SURVIVOR: AFRICA" edition, many viewers would feel that the SURVIVOR franchise would either need to grease its wheels and reinvent itself or retire with dignity. Thankfully, "SURVIVOR: MARQUESAS" opted for the first choice and it immediately shows in the first episode.

Returning to the 'island / beach' theme, 16 cast-aways are dispatched from a boat off the island of Tahiti in the South Pacific and into two tribes of 8, Maraamu and Rotu, they are to spend 39 days surviving nature and each other in hopes of winning the $1 million dollar prize.

Some new rules that have been implemented to rejuvenate the series is that each tribe is not given any food or fire to start out with. It is also a welcome relief to see the tropical surroundings that are very familiar to those featured in the first "SURVIVOR".

Judging from the first episode, some favorites have emerged. John, Rob, Robert and Vecepia all show promise. The one person standing out currently that could spell future trouble is Sarah. She could be this edition's resident 'Jerri'. As like the other editions, only time will tell who will become the ones we want to root for and the ones we just love to hate. Maraamu were the first to create fire, but Rotu won the immunity challenge. What a great premiere episode! What can I say, I'm hooked already!

1 down, 15 to go - BRING IT ON!
