Season Chronology
Previous: Survivor 2001 (U.K.)

Survivor 2002 (U.K.) was the second season of the British reality show, Survivor.

Contestants were divided into two initial tribes named North Island and South Island. After four contestants were voted out, the remaining eight merged into a tribe called Columbus.


The second season was filmed in the Panamanian province of Bocas del Toro.


  • Fewer Contestants: The game started with just 12 contestants, four fewer than the first season.
  • Shorter Game: The game lasted 37 days, three days shorter than the first season.
  • Smaller Merge: The two tribes merged when there were just 8 contestants remaining in the game.
  • Public Jury Vote: Because there were an even number of jurors, the British public were given the right to cast a seventh jury vote.

Season Summary

The twelve contestants were divided into two tribes, North Island (red) and South Island (blue). South Island had a rough start at the beginning of the game, losing the first three challenges in a row. The tribe's early losses sent them to the first two Tribal Councils, where they voted out Sarah McCombie (for being weak and asking to leave) and Lee Capon (because some of the tribemembers thought they would be in a better position if he left). However, the tribe's losing steak did not last for long, and they fought back, winning the next four challenges. North Island was sent to Tribal Council twice in a row, where they voted out Tayfun Kadioglu (for not fitting in) and Meeta Bose (because she had asked to leave).

On Day 14, the two tribes evenly merged, with four members each, into one tribe - Columbus. Before the merge, the two tribes had vowed to remain loyal to one another through to the very end. At the new tribe's first Tribal Council, expectedly, there was a deadlocked 4-4 tie between Helen Carney and Bridget Griffiths. The two tied contestants took part in a sudden death trivia quiz about Panama; Helen was eliminated after the second question, meaning that South Island was now in the majority. At the next three Tribal Councils, South Island voted out the last remaining members of North Island consecutively (Alastair Brogan, Drew Agger and Dave Porter).

At this point, only original members of South Island remained; they now had no choice, but to vote out one of their own. By a unanimous vote, Bridget, the original tribe outsider, was voted out at the next Tribal Council. The three remaining members of Columbus then competed in their Final Immunity Challenge; Susannah Moffatt was victorious, and was given the power to decide who would sit next to her in the Final Two. Despite believing that Jonny Gibb was less popular than John Dalzell, she voted out the latter thinking that she was remaining true to a deal that she had with Jonny.

At the Final Tribal Council, Susannah garnered no votes as people believed that she did not need the money and was "undeserving", and Jonny received all six of the jury votes from the contestants and an additional vote from the British public due to his likeability. Jonny became the second Sole Survivor of Survivor (U.K.) and the first ever contestant to have played a "perfect" game.
