Over the spring of 2000, sixteen average Americans (divided into two tribes which eventually merge into one) were sequestered on the deserted island of Pulau Tiga for 39 days. For their stay, they must learn to live as a tribe, although eventually, it is everyone for themselves. They compete in challenges for "luxuries" (a barbecue, a phone call home, etc.) and immunity. Every three days, the losers of the latter challenges must face tribal council, where they will account for their actions by voting one person off of the island. At the end of day 39, there will be only one survivor left who will leave the island with one million dollars. Based on the Swedish game show, "Operation Robinson."Written by
The finale episode featured the million dollar winner walking through an airport and getting into their brand new car. This scene had to be filmed four different times, each with a member of the final four in order to keep the secret of who really won. See more »
Survivor has always been my favorite reality TV show, and Guatemala (season 11) continues that tradition perfectly. Every location is different and has its specialties, you just can't say those 18 outcasts are just doing the same things as the other survivors did in the previous 10 seasons!! Plenty of physical challenges...the initial challenge was 11 miles through the jungle, that's nothing like ever before. Plenty of mazes, physical challenges, races, endurance, and mind busters are all included in this amazing 39 day experience for those 18 lucky people, especially for bobby Jon & Steph, who appeared in survivor palau. Being the toughest season ever, its needless to say that outlasting, outwitting, and outplaying 17 others is ridiculously hard. There are some nice, bold survivors, like Judd, as well as some rather lucky ones, like Lydia, and also some who made some obviously false choices (cindy and the car).
All in all, great cast, great historical, unforgiving setting, great challenges, and great strategy. Real congratulations to Danni, sole survivor, and a strong, great lookin girl.. Congrats to all the others as well!! This is the best survivor season ever, it just doesn't seem to lose its touch. Can't wait for panama in spring 06'!!!
