In Koh-Lanta, the Ambassadors is a recurring twist that happens each season right before the merge. Each tribe needs to name an emissary to a very special meeting. There, the two or three ambassadors must make a decision that affects the game.

History

In the first seasons, the Ambassadors have to agree on rather minimal hindrances for their fellow castaways. Introduced in the very first season, 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 have to choose the merge beach, this mechanism was in place until Koh-Lanta: Caramoan.

Since Koh-Lanta: Le Retour des Héros however, the Ambassadors instead have to unanimously decide which castaway must be eliminated from the game. If they cannot come to an agreement, a rock draw happens, with the one picking the black rock eliminated.
