Come on in, guys!
It's that time again. Twice a year, 16-20 Americans hit the beach for 39 days and test their bodies and minds as they compete in challenges and vote each other out with the goal of taking home the title of "Sole Survivor" and the $1,000,000 prize.
On Wednesday, February 20th, 14 new castaways and 4 “All-Stars” (returning players) will hit the beaches of Fiji in an attempt to outwit, outplay, and outlast each other using whatever means necessary to sit there at the end for a chance to win it all.
BUT - this time, there’s a twist. And it COULD be game-breaking. It’s so central to the season, I’m putting it here. When you’re voted out, you’re presented with a choice. After Probst snuffs a torch, the eliminated castaway will walk down a path and reach a fork in the road. They can choose to end their time on Survivor (and realistically their chance at ever returning in a future season), or they can keep hope alive and make their way to the “Edge of Extinction”, a barebones island where eliminated contestants who make this choice will pile up and have nothing to do, as well as extremely limited supplies. It hasn’t been fully explained pre-season, but it’s speculated that there will be a chance at the merge and a chance in the finale episode for a player to return into the game for another shot at winning. Anyone who is still on Extinction come merge will apparently make the jury. This implies that conceivably, this could be the first season where someone eliminated first on day 3 COULD be a Final Tribal Council finalist with every eliminated contestant (15 people) on the jury having a say in who wins the money and the title of Sole Survivor. So basically, the season twist is the Outcasts Twist from Pearl Islands meets Exile Island meets Redemption Island. And it was very likely created to hand the win to Joey Amazing. :)
Join us! Once again, you can claim the title of SOLE SurvivERA. Join our uncapped custom league by signing up for free (using your username so we know who’s who) at Tribal-Council.com. Click “Join Private League” when you first login and enter the league code: 74bc35a3965a750f
For those new to this - pick any 8 people right away and click save changes. Then on the next step, choose which 5 are starting (earning points) and which 3 are benched. You can keep changing your picks and who is starting until about an hour before the season starts. Better to have picks you don't like then forgetting to sign back in and pick no one at all. The website has a rules category so you can see how points are earned and lost, but honestly - no way to really know how anyone is going to do pre-season. Especially with this new twist in play. You're mostly just picking faces/personalities that you vibe with.
Being that I’ve chosen to not consider the season’s central theme a twist, there are currently no other unknown twists in the mix. While this isn’t Big Brother, always expect the unexpected.
