It’s now 20 years since Survivor hit TV screens, pitting groups of strangers together in an isolated location, where they must provide food, fire, and shelter for themselves while also completing challenges.
To mark the 40th Season, this latest instalment of the show will be bringing back a select 20 of the 38 previous winners of the show.
They’ll be battling it out to win a bumper $2 million prize – a figure that CBS claims is the biggest in reality TV history. The competitors will once again be heading to a remote part of Fiji with Jeff Probst returning as host (and producer). Also making a reappearance is the controversial Edge of Extinction twist that was introduced in Season 38 which saw contestants remain in the show after they have been voted off.
One notable omission however is the show’s first ever-winner, and arguably most infamous contestant, Richard Hatch, who has been left out by producers in controversial circumstances.
The new season began with a bang with a two-hour special which featured two eliminations, with Natalie Anderson sent packing from the Sele tribe, while Amber Mariano was eliminated from the Dakal tribe.
