When Survivor: South Pacific has its 90-minute premiere on Wednesday, September 14, the twist introduced last season — Redemption Island — will return. But there have been some changes made to the way Redemption Island plays out. There’s also a new twist regarding the clues for hidden Immunity Idols. How have these elements changed since last season? Read on to find out more!
The change with Redemption Island is definitely for the better. According to Entertainment Weekly, duels this season will only feature two contestants unlike last time when some battles had as many as four contestants. This makes it a do-or-die situation now. You lose, you’re out for good! This is how it should have been played the first time around. Group duels offered too many opportunities for contestants to stay in the game after they were already booted from the competition.
When it comes to the clues for hidden Immunity Idols, host Jeff Probst says they will be hidden somewhere — just like the Idols are. “No clue as to where the clue is,” Probst tells EW. “Once you find the clue, then you have to find the Idol.”
Survivor: South Pacific, which marks the show’s 23rd edition, features 16 new castaways up against two returning players. This season was filmed in Samoa, which is the third time this location has been used.
