Koh-Lanta: Bocas del Toro is the third season of Koh-Lanta, the French version of Survivor.

This season is remembered for its extremely harsh living conditions that led to five medical evacuations and one quit. Due to the high amount of evacuations, two jokers were added into the game, and only 6 out of the 16 original castaways reached the merge. It is also the first season to have a tie at the final vote, resulting in both finalists being declared winners.

Production

The season was filmed in island Bocas del Toro in Panama. The series later returned to the Panama for its fourth season, which was filmed in the Pearl Islands. This season saw a first in the world history of Survivor when both finalists received three jury votes and were both given the titles of Survivor.

Twists

  • Tribe Selection: The oldest male and female players would choose their tribemates.
  • Replacements: Due to the high amount of evacuations and quits that took place this season, there were two players that returned after their elimination, and two new castaways entered midway through the game.
  • Ambassadors: The ambassador's summit is not to decide the name and the flag of the new tribe, but to choose one of the remaining castaways to cast an extra vote for the next Tribal Council. If ambassadors do not agree on a name, there's a rock tiebreaker and the unlucky ambassador gets the extra vote.
  • Exile Islet: As the season didn't have enough people to replace all of the evacuations and quits during the season, at the Day 31 Tribal Council, rather than being voted out of the game, the castaway with the most votes would be exiled for 48 hours.

Notes:

^1 Alexandra was medically evacuated due to an allergic reaction to sandfly bites. Hélène entered the game on Day 6 to replace her.
^2 Unable to handle the conditions of the game, Candice elected to quit the game. Richard returned to the game on Day 8 to replace her, switching tribes in the process.
^3 Michel had injured one of his fingers with a hammer shortly before the game which he hid from production. Valérie learned of the injury and informed production, prompting the medical team to look at it and deem it necessary for him to be evacuated from the game. Sébastien returned to the game on Day 10 to replace him.
^4 Julie was medically evacuated due to a kidney infection. No castway returned to replace her, as the only castway eligible, Sophie, had injured feet.
^5 Philippe passed out at the Immunity Challenge, where he was under observation for a day (though he still voted at Tribal Council), where it was determined Philippe need to be medically evacuated. Delphine entered the game on Day 18 to replace him as the most recently eliminated castaway, Linda, refused to return after a verbally violent altercation with Moundir.
^6 Richard was medically evacuated due to an insect bite causing his knee to swell. No castaway returned to replace him and no vote occurred at Machiga's Tribal Coucil.
^7 At the ambassadors meeting, Isabelle and Delphine agreed to cast the extra vote against Moussa.
^8 At the final four, the remaining castaways competed in an elimination challenge. Antoine came in last and was eliminated.
^9 Delphine and Moussa did not vote as they could only vote for were each other. By virtue of winning the final Immunity Challenge, only Isabelle voted.
^10 According to the rules of Koh-Lanta, if a tie for Sole Survivor occurs, both finalists are declared winners.
