Survivor: Twists & series summaries
Hi, I'm from the UK where Survivor was axed mainly due to being on a channel that couldn't schedule it and didn't want to pay out £1m to the winner of a show hardly anyone watched.
Anyway, I've been looking around a few Survivor websites but it's very hard to find details without going through pages and pages of episode guides.
Basically, I know the basic rules, but could anyone provide a summary of any twists which have been added over the seasons. I know that in one season the tribes were Male v Female and that often tribes are remixed at some point.
Also, a summary of some of the best challenges would be appreciated.
The only twist the second UK series had was where a viewers vote formed the seventh member of the jury, but this had no affect on the outcome as all the eliminated survivors voted for the same person.
In my opinion if incorporating a viewers vote when the tribes merge to 10 all eliminated contestants should go on the jury. When 3 remain they compete for a place in the final. The winner of immunity goes through to the final, with the jury deciding the other finalist. The viewers would then decide who wins. Anyway, that's unlikely to happen as US TV seem to have many more reality shows where the contestants control everything while in the UK it's the viewers (that's one of many reasons why Survivor didn't work in the UK)
