‘Survivor‘ has just had one of the most exciting seasons in the history of the show. Season 40 brought back the champions from previous installments of the series, leading to fierce competition in the immunity challenges, and some mind-boggling politics in the council meetings.
As you know, the show follows a set format where strangers have to fend for themselves on an island.

Players are ousted progressively as the competition advances, and the winner gets a prize of $1,000,000. Curious to find out what Season 41 might look like? We have got the latest news and updates right here.

What is Survivor About?
‘Survivor’ is all about making it on your own in an island, scrounging resources, while remaining sharp enough to get the better of challenges, and other opponents. Usually, the participants are divided into camps at first, until the divisions are dissolved, and everyone starts to look out for themselves.
The show tests a participant’s endurance, their wit, and their ability to work alone or in a team. The challenges are often repeated over the seasons and include the likes of obstacle courses, balancing acts, and puzzle-solving. Undoubtedly, we will see some familiar bits from the past resurfacing in the new season. Still, the truly exciting bit will be to witness how the fresh participants deal with the scenario.
