Each season for 39 days, 16-20 castaways will be marooned on a tropical island in various locations. They will be forced to band together and carve out a new existence, using their collective wits to make surviving, without any conveniences of the modern world, a little easier. Day by day the location and tropical sun will test the endurance of the castaways.
Each three days of island life will result in a one-hour Survivor episode. The survivors must form their own cooperative island society, building shelter, gathering and catching food, and participating in contests for rewards. Those who succeed in the day-to-day challenges will be rewarded with things to make island life more bearable-simple comforts like pillows, food, cold beer and sodas, and clean clothing. Those who fail must do without. On the last day of each three-day cycle, the castaways must form a tribal council. At this meeting, each person places a secret ballot vote to send one fellow castaway home, eliminating him or her from eligibility for the one million dollars.
Week by week, one by one, the tribe shrinks until at the end of the final episode, only two survivors remain. At that point, the seven most recently eliminated castaways will return to form the final tribal council and decide who will be the final soul survivor and the winner of $1,000,000 dollars.
SURVIVOR Season 26:"Survivor: Caramoan – Fans vs. Favorites 2" is the twenty-sixth season of the American CBS competitive reality television series Survivor, which premiered on Wednesday, February 13th, 2013 at 8pm with a special 90-minute premiere, then returned to its normal hour-long format in the following week.
SURVIVOR Season 27:
On Wednesday 27 March 2013 the network confirmed the competition will return for season 27 later this year. Common speculation is that "Survivor" will continue at least through its 30th season, which would be Spring of 2015, a common-sense point to have some sort of massive all-star season. As always, Probst will give a preview of season 27 at the "Survivor: Caramoan Live Reunion Show" following this season's Finale, on May 12.
As with Survivor: Micronesia, the first season to have the "Fans vs. Favorites" subtitle, this season will initially feature a tribe of ten returning contestants from previous seasons opposing a tribe of ten new players. It is the eighth season overall to feature returning players. Production of the show took place in the Philippines' Caramoan Islands, the same location as the previous season 25.
According to Jeff Probst, producers had asked both Matt Elrod from Redemption Island and Shannon "Shambo" Waters from Samoa to return but both turned the offer down, believing one season was enough for them and not wanting to let Survivor define their lives. The casting crew had also considered asking fan favorite Lisa Whelchel from Phillipines to participate, but realized that asking a mother to participate in back-to-back seasons would be difficult [-] less
