SURVIVOR Offers a Big Twist in the Name of ‘Redemption’ Next Season

December 20, 2010 by  

How does SURVIVOR keep it fresh and interesting after 21 seasons?  They switch up the game.

Tonight, during the season final of SURVIVOR: NICARAGUA, Jeff Probst announced a new twist for season 22, which kicks off in just over a month.

Next season, SURVIVOR: REDEMPTION ISLAND gives the castaways a shot at the million, even after they’ve been voted out of the game.

Here’s how it works: When someone is voted out at tribal council, rather than going home, they will be taken to Redemption Island and forced to live alone until the next castaway joins them. At that time, the two will square off in a head-to-head dual. Whomever survives stays in the game while the other person is sent packing for good.  If someone survives on Redemption Island long enough, he or she will be invited back in to the game. That could make it very uncomfortable for those who had a hand in that person’s original ousting.

It’s a little SURVIVOR meets MTV’s: THE CHALLENGE. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

The next season of SURVIVOR premieres on February 16th on CBS.

Are you excited?

    It’s not Team Russell vs. Team Boston Rob…so I’m a little disappointed! Damn you false spoilers.

    I have one word to discribe this twist: odd. I still think this Rob vs Russell thing will happen. I’m guessing they can’t market the season as “Rob vs. Russell” because there’s no telling when either would be voted out. Once one of them is voted out, they can’t continue to call it “Rob vs Russell”, so don’t give up hope.

    We had this twist in one of the Israeli seasons of survivor,
    and it was quite awful. A competitor that was out of the game for over a month managed to get to the final without having to piss anyone off.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined
    out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    This is the right site for anybody who wishes to find out about this
    topic. You realize so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a new spin on a topic that has
    been discussed for years. Wonderful stuff, just excellent!
