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
In first six installments of Survivor had an indigenous culture theme, meaning that challenges, tribe names, etc., were based on names, history and culture of the past and present indigenous occupants of the game's geographic location. However, Survivor: Pearl Islands differed in that they had a pirate theme, with tribe names, challenges, etc. were based off of pirate folklore instead of local indigenous culture. See more »
Frequent continuity errors. It's clear that many scenes were filmed hours or days apart and then edited together with =out consideration for whether or not they visually flowed together. See more »
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 »
__Contains Minor Spoiler about the First Episode__ Only 2 episodes into Survivor:Palau and its already more interesting than Vanuatu, In my opinion. Survivor: Vanuatu was disappointing mostly because of the bland cast, and Survivor:All Stars was both over-hyped and predictable, but I'm happy to report that it seems that Survivor: Palau will rank up there with the best versions of the show. One criticism I have with the show is how they got rid of two people off the bat- I just think it was really unnecessary. Thus far, the cast seems great and I especially like the Koror or "the bad-news bears tribe". The people I'm rooting for: Tom, Coby, Ian and Stephenie. That would be a FANTASTIC final four, wouldn't it?
