Season Chronology
Previous: Game Changers

Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers is the 35th season of Survivor.


The season was filmed in the spring of 2017, following the same schedule that was used for Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X and Survivor: Game Changers. The following season was filmed a few weeks after.

The season's motif was inspired by the British colonization of Fiji from 1874 to 1970, with primary focus on shipping trade. As such, Tribal Council was designed to look like an abandoned warehouse overgrown with vines and cluttered with shipwreck debris. The walkway to Tribal Council was an actual disused cart track.[2]


  • Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers: The 18 contestants are divided into 3 tribes based on how they are perceived by their immediate communities:
    • The Levu tribe are the "Heroes", who serve their duties heroically and courageously.
    • The Soko tribe are the "Healers", who serve others by helping them heal physically or emotionally.
    • The Yawa tribe are the "Hustlers", who are praised for their work ethic and bravado in achieving goals.
  • Hidden Immunity Idols: For this season clues for the regular idols will be etched on a tree. In addition to regular idols, before the marooning, a "super-idol", a Hidden Immunity Idol which can be used once a castaway receives enough votes to be voted out at Tribal Council rather than before the votes are read, will be planted beneath the supplies. Unlike its Panama, Cook Islands, Cagayan, and Kaôh Rōng counterparts, this idol can only be used during the first Tribal Council. If the finder's tribe wins the first Immunity Challenge, that player must anonymously send the idol to a member of the losing tribe.[3]
  • Return of Previous Tiebreaker Rules: The revote, which was removed last season, will be reinstated this season.[3] This was announced to the castaways on this season prior to the start of the inaugural Immunity Challenge.
  • Tribe Switch: A tribe switch occurred on Day 9 at the final 15.
