Season Chronology
Next: Survivor 2002 (U.K.)

Survivor 2001 (U.K.) was the first season of the British reality show, Survivor.

Contestants were divided into two initial tribes named Helang (Eagle) and Ular (Snake). After six castaways were voted out, the remaining ten Merged into a tribe called Sekutu.


The first season was filmed on the Malaysian island of Pulau Tiga, in the South China Sea, which was also the site of the first U.S. Survivor season.


  • 40-Day Format: The game lasted 40 days, one day longer than the first season of the American franchise. This was due to the fact that the first tribal occurred on Day 4 and every 3 days thereafter.
  • Past Votes Tiebreaker: In an event of a tie vote, a revote would take place. If there is still a stalemate after the second round of voting, the votes cast against the players in question at previous Tribal Councils will also be counted. The castaway that had more votes would be eliminated from the game.

Season Summary

The season premiere began with sixteen people divided into two tribes. They were Helang (eagle), wearing yellow, and Ular (snake), wearing blue. Throughout the pre-merge portion of the game, Ular appeared to be the superior tribe and was only sent Tribal Council on two different occasions. At these Tribal Councils, they eliminated Nick Carter (for trying to control the game) and Sarah Odell (for being associated with Eve Holding, who had been causing rifts in the tribe). Helang, on the other hand, was not so fortunate when it came to challenges, winning just two of the six Immunity Challenges. The tribe's failure in challenges sent them to Tribal Council four times, where they voted out J.J. Adams (for being too domineering), Uzma Bashir (for being weak), Jayne Meyler (for also being weak) and Adrian Bauckham (for being lazy).

On Day 21, the ten remaining castaways were merged into one tribe - Sekutu. Before the merge, the Ular tribe had decided to come together as an alliance and vote off the original members of Helang. The alliance followed through with their original plan at the first three Tribal Councils, and voted out the three men of Helang (Simon Dunkley, Andy Fairfield and James Stroud).

At this point, it looked as if Charlotte Hoborough, the last remaining member of Helang, would be the next one to leave. However, Ular decided that it would be a prime opportunity to vote out the biggest physical threat in the game, Pete Farrar, and Charlotte was spared. At the next Tribal Council, Charlotte was the target once again, but Richard Owen defected from his alliance with Eve and Zoe Lyons, forming a new counter alliance with the two outsiders of the tribe, Charlotte and Jackie Carey. The vote was tied 3-3; as Charlotte had 1 past vote cast against her and Zoe had 5, she was eliminated from the game. Eve, angered by the surprise of the vote, began to isolate herself from the group. Back at camp, she began to cause chaos, stealing items from the tribe (such as tampons, ketchup and a raincoat). Due to Eve's "inhumane" behaviour, the tribe voted her out unanimously. Mick Easton, the last remaining member of his alliance with Eve and Zoe, was then voted out at the next Tribal Council. At the Final Immunity Challenge, Charlotte came out victorious and had the power to decide who would sit next to her in the Final Two. The decision seemed fairly clear to Charlotte, and she eliminated Richard who was much more liked by the jury than Jackie.

At the Final Tribal Council, the jury praised Charlotte for overcoming so many obstacles to get to the end and criticised Jackie for being "carried" through the game. By a unanimous vote of 7-0, Charlotte became the first Sole Survivor of Survivor (U.K.).

  • This season and the first season of the American franchise have various similarities:
    • Both were set in Pulau Tiga, Sabah, Malaysia.
    • Both were the first seasons of their respective franchises.
    • Both followed the basic format of Survivor.
    • Both had orange and yellow tribes.
    • Both had a female runner-up.
    • Both had tribes living at the Pagong beach.
    • Both yellow starting tribes were Pagonged after the merge.

    • Both had contestants named "Richard" who reached the Final 3.
    • Both had contestants called by two letters, "B.B." and "J.J.", that were eliminated in the second episode.
    • Both each had a castaway in the Final Two aged in their 30s and 20s.
  • The two tribes this season both had an identical age average of 34.5.
