Season 8

Survivor is an American version of the Survivor reality competition television series based on the Swedish series Expedition Robinson, originally created in 1992 by Charlie Parsons, which is based on stranding a group of strangers as one or more tribes in a remote location where they must fend for food and shelter for themselves, while competing in challenges to earn rewards and immunity from being voted off by the tribe in progressive eliminations.

The last challenger remaining at the end of the competition wins the $1-million prize and title of Sole Survivor, using the show's mantra: "Outwit. Outplay. Outlast."

Sixteen or more players are split between two or more tribes, are taken to a remote isolated location (usually in a tropical climate) and are forced to live off the land with meager supplies for roughly a month.

Frequent physical challenges are used to pit the teams against each other for rewards, such as food or luxuries, or for immunity, forcing the other tribe to attend Tribal Council, where they must vote off one of their players.

Once about half the players are remaining, the tribes are merged into a single tribe, and competitions are on an individual basis; winning immunity prevents that player from being voted out, while several that are voted out at this stage form the game's jury.

Once down to two or three people, a final Tribal Council is held where the remaining players plead their case to the jury members. The jury then votes for which player should be considered the "Sole Survivor" and win the show's prize.

In all seasons for the United States version, this has included a $1-million prize in addition to the Sole Survivor title; some seasons have included additional prizes such as a car.

The U.S. version has introduced numerous modifications, or twists, on the core rules in order to keep the players on their toes and to prevent players from relying on strategies that succeeded in prior seasons.

These changes have included tribal switches, seasons starting with more than two tribes, the ability to exile a player from a tribe for a short time, hidden immunity idols that players can use to save themselves at Tribal Council and a chance to return to regular gameplay after elimination through Redemption Island.

Survivor is hosted by Emmy Award-winning host Jeff Probst and produced by SEG, Inc. Mark Burnett, Jeff Probst and David Burris are executive producers.
