Description Recognition and Award Giving Body

The Survivor Hall of Fame is a special recognition given to Survivor contestants with exemplary deeds such as strategic brilliance, immense popularity or infamy. It is run by Xfinity TV, a part of cable TV company Comcast.

About

In 2010, Survivor fan Gordon Holmes, an assistant managing producer at Comcast initiated a yearly poll on which Survivor contestants (from the first season in Survivor: Borneo to the most recent season) deserves a spot in the Hall of Fame. How voters define "worthy" is in their discretion, whether it is personality, strategy, challenge performance or any other reason. Survivor producers, crew members, the press, the Xfinity staff (including Holmes himself) and former Hall of Fame inductees make up 50% of the final score, while the remaining half will come from the Survivor fanbase. Gordon's duel-tiered voting systems was devised to prevent one party from influencing the other, though Holmes found it "unnecessary."

After announcing their inclusion to the list, Holmes interviews the new inductees about their induction to the hall.

Voting

Ballots are filed in the blog page of the Xfinity TV website. In the first batch of inductees, five contestants are inducted. However, in subsequent years, three new inductees are being added.

As of now, fans may vote three contestants from any season at the comments section of the blog post that signals the opening of voting, which also announces the deadline of the voting process.[1][2]

Tribal Council Edition

In celebration of the 5th year of the award, instead of including three former players to the Hall of Fame, the "Survivor" Hall of Fame Executive Committee (which consists of luminaries such as "Survivor" host Jeff Probst, producers of the show, Hall of Famers and others) were asked to nominate their favorite Tribal Councils. From Tuesday, November 25, 2014 through Sunday, December 7, 2014 the comitee sent their three favorite Tribal Councils, resulting in a list of sixteen Tribal Councils available to public voting. The voting went from December 8 through December 12, and the three most votes were revealed from December 15 through December 17, 2014.[3]
