Survivor: Samoa Premiere

7:30pm – Thursday, October 29 on TV 3

In one of the most beautiful Survivor locations yet, 20 castaways are left to fend for themselves among Samoa’s white sand beaches, lush green valleys and towering waterfalls when the season premier of Survivor: Samoa hits our screens on Thursday, October 29th at 7:30pm on 3.

The long-running reality series’ 19th season will begin with the 20 castaways being divided into two tribes and immediately forced into choosing a leader before having the opportunity to converse with one another.

“This group reminds me a little bit of Fans vs. Favourites in terms of there’s a sense of fun and actually looks like they’d be fun to hang out with,” Survivor host Jeff Probst reveals in a statement.

“From the start of the game, Survivor embraces this Samoan culture by incorporating an ancient tradition of electing an individual leader of the village,” Probst continues, explaining this season’s format twist.

“Without speaking, both tribes must immediately choose one member of their group to become their sole decision maker, their chief,” he explains, adding; “How important will the role of tribal chief be in determining the fate of each tribe?”

In addition, this season’s cast will also include one castaway who series producers proclaim will emerge as the biggest villain in Survivor’s already very villain-full 19 season history.

“One of these castaways will become the biggest Survivor villain ever,” Probst explains about the yet unnamed castaway.
