|Battle of the Sexes|
Jaburu, the first all-female tribe of the series.
|Description||Tribe division based on gender|
|Appearance(s)|| The Amazon|
A Battle of the Sexes is a game-shifting paradigm employed at the start of a competition that divides the men and women into gender-specific tribes for a pre-determined amount of time.
In most cases, men have been shown to be more apt with building shelter and providing sustainable food sources whilst the women have struggled, though their teamwork has been proven to be more effective.
A popular mechanism, the twist has been used in other seasons using the same format or adjusting it slightly. To date, Men and Women are on level footing when it comes to winning the game in this format.
Survivor: The AmazonEdit
The difference between this season compared to previous gender-divided tribes were that they were separated into four tribes. Younger men were Viveros, Older men were La Mina, Younger women were Bayoneta, and the Older women were Casaya.
Survivor: One WorldEdit
Fans fully embraced the twist during the Amazon citing the differences in camp life and eventual strategies that came out of it. However, subsequent divisions have been less than successful until One World when both tribes were placed on the same beach, allowing the groups to interact with one another.
- Every season that featured a Battle of the Sexes had their tribes shuffled at some point before the merge, mixing its members.
- Tribe switches in all four Battle of the Sexes seasons occurred when there were 12 people (The Amazon), 13 people (Vanuatu), 14 people (One World) and 15 people (Panama) left in the game.
