In Koh-Lanta, the Ambassadors is a recurring twist that happens each season right before the merge. Each tribe needs to name an emmissary to a very special meeting. There, the two or three ambassadors must make a decision which will change the rest of the game for ever.

In the first seasons, the Ambassadors had to agree on rather minimal hindrances for their fellow castaways : sometimes they met to decide on which beach the merge would happen, other times they had to give a vote to another contestants for the merge Tribal Council. Since Koh-Lanta: Palau however, the stakes have been raised. The Ambassadors have to decide on the name of a castaway they want to eliminate from the game. If they cannot come to an agreement, they go to a rock drawn, and the one who picks the black rock is eliminated.

History

Introduced in the very first season of Koh-Lanta, the Ambassadors met right before the merge and had to decide on the name to add on an extra ballot for the merge Tribal Council. Except for Koh-Lanta: Nicoya, where the Ambassadors only had to choose the merge Beach, this mechanism was in place until Koh-Lanta: Caramoan.
