Season Chronology
Previous: Millennials vs. Gen X

Survivor: Game Changers - Mamanuca Islands is the 34th season of Survivor.

This is the fourth season to feature a full cast of returnees, after Survivor: All-Stars, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, and Survivor: Cambodia.


The season was filmed 25 days after the filming of Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X, following the back-to-back filming pattern of seasons since Survivor: Samoa.

This season features a nautical theme. The Tribal Council set is comprised of ten actual shipwrecks, most of which were retrieved in the aftermath of Cyclone Winston, the cyclone that hit Fiji before production for Millennials vs. Gen X began.[3]


  • Game Changers: 20 returning contestants, selected for the impact they had made on the game of Survivor, will return to battle for the title of Sole Survivor.
  • Tribe Expansion: As in Survivor: Cambodia and Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X, a third tribe will be introduced at some point in the pre-merge stage of the game.[4] The Tavua tribe, wearing green buffs, was introduced on Day 7 of the game.
  • Simplified Tiebreaker: In an event of a tie at Tribal Council, the re-vote would be retired, and an open forum would commence. If the non-tied players are unable to make an unanimous decision who to eliminate, the rock draw takes place.[5]
  • Hidden Immunity Idol: The idols will be inconsistently hidden at camp, in challenges, and even at Tribal Council.[6]
  • Legacy Advantage: The Legacy Advantage was dropped at the ship used during the marooning, and allowed its holder to gain immunity at either the Final 13 or the Final 6. In the event that the holder is eliminated, he or she must will it to another player still in the game.
  • Joint Tribal Council: The two tribes who lost the fourth Immunity Challenge were both sent to Tribal Council as a group, but unlike a standard Double Tribal Council, they would vote as a group and only one person was voted out.
  • Tribe Switch: At the Final 15, a second tribe switch will take place.
  • Exile Island: At the Final 15, one person was sent to Exile Island because of not being placed on a tribe.
  • Advantage Option: The exiled castaway was given three possible advantages - an extra vote, a kit with which to design a fake Hidden Immunity Idol, as well as a challenge advantage for their new tribe.
  • Merge at 13: As was the case with Cambodia and Millennials vs. Gen X, this season's merge took place at the Final 13.
  • Vote Steal: At the Final 11 Reward Challenge, a "secret advantage" was placed by the sit-out bench. It was revealed to give its holder the right to steal a vote from another contestant, effectively denying that person a right to vote and allowing the holder to vote twice at one Tribal Council. It is usable up until the Final 5.

^1 This was a Joint Tribal Council. Tai played a Hidden Immunity Idol on Sierra, therefore 6 votes cast against her were negated.
^2 Due to the odd number of players at the time of the tribe switch, Debbie, the odd person out, was sent to Exile, and rejoined the game as a member of Nuku, replacing Sandra and evening the tribes at 7-7.
^3 Jeff was voted out unanimously by the Nuku tribe. Due to the nature of the verbal vote, Jeff did not cast a vote.
^4 Debbie used the extra vote advantage, allowing her to vote twice at Tribal Council.
