Koh-Lanta: L'Île des Héros is the twenty-fourth season of Koh-Lanta, the French version of Survivor.

Production

This season was originally planned to run 11 episodes. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, four episodes (5-6, 8-9, 12-13, and 14-15) were divided in two parts, in hopes that lockdown would be over in time for the live finale reunion. This decision payed out, as lockdown in France ended in May and the reunion was able to be held on June 5.

Twists

  • Heroes Island: While fourteen new castaways enter the season, five former castaways return for another chance to win, starting the game as the Heroes and living on an island apart from the two tribes of new players. In order to enter the main game, they must compete in two entry challenges where the two winners earn a spot in one of the two tribes, along with individual immunity at the following Tribal Council should their new tribe lose the corresponding Immunity Challenge. The first entry challenge is held on Day 2, with the two winners joining a tribe after the Day 4 Reward Challenge. Heroes Island ends on Day 9 with the second entry challenge, as the two winners immediately join a tribe and the remaining Hero who finished last in the challenge is eliminated from the game.
  • Immunity Necklaces: The first two Immunity Necklaces (equivalent of Hidden Immunity Idols in Koh-Lanta) are up for grabs at an opening challenge held at the marooning, before the formation of the tribes. The first one is only playable at the first Tribal Council attended by its holder, while the second one, which is harder to retrieve, is last playable at the first post-merge Tribal Council. Two other Immunity Necklaces are hidden afterwards, one on each tribe's camp, and those are also valuable until the first post-merge Tribal Council. Finally, other Immunity Necklaces with no limited valuability are hidden after the merge.
  • Ambassadors: At the merge, both tribes must appoint a returning castaway and a new castaway from the opposite tribe to attend the ambassadors meeting, where their purpose is to directly eliminate a castaway from the game. If the four ambassadors do not agree on a name, a rock draw is held between the two pairs representing each tribe, and the pair that loses the draw competes in a duel where the loser is eliminated from the game.
  • Black Vote: The Black Vote retains the mechanics introduced in Cambodge: starting from the first post-merge Tribal Council, the person voted out gives to a remaining castaway the power to vote twice at the following Tribal Council. The Black Vote does not extend through a revote.
  • Penalty Vote after Challenge: At three different challenges, the person or pair who comes in last receives an extra vote against them at the following Tribal Council. Those challenges are the Immunity Challenge in Episode 6, the Reward Challenge in Episode 8 (with the penalty vote taking effect in Episode 9 due to the original episode being divided in two parts), and the Immunity Challenge in Episode 10. Penalty votes do not extend through a revote.
  • Tied Destinies: On Day 22, the ten remaining castaways are divided into five pairs by a rock draw. Until the next Tribal Council, the fate of each contestant is linked to their partner: the challenges are competed by pairs, and the person voted out at Tribal Council causes their partner's demise.
  • Sudden Death Challenge: On Day 29, the castaway who comes in last in the Immunity Challenge is directly eliminated from the game.
  • Replacements: Due to Claudia Chatel being evacuated before the first Tribal Council, Marie Ovaere entered the game on Day 3 to replace her. Also, due to two other evacuations, two castaways returned in the game after being eliminated.
  • Final Five: The last five adventurers will go to the orienteering race.

Notes:

^1 Claudia was medically evacuated. No vote occurred for her removal and Marie entered the game to replace her.
^2 This castaway returned to the game during Tribal Council. Due to not spending the previous three days with their tribe, they were immune and could not cast a vote.
^3 Jessica finished last in the Héros's entry challenge and was eliminated from the game.
^4 Marie was medically evacuated. No vote occurred for her removal and Jessica came back in the game to replace her.
^5 Sara was medically evacuated. No vote occurred for her removal and Teheiura came back in the game to replace her.
^6 Ahmad, Alexandra, Claude, and Moussa were their tribes' ambassadors. At the meeting, they agreed to vote Delphine out of the game.
^7 A castaway(s) had a penalty vote cast against them due to finishing last in the Immunity Challenge.
^8 Tribal Council resulted in a tie. Per Koh-Lanta rules, a revote was held. Both the Black Vote and any penalty votes do not carry over into the revote.
^9 This castaway was given the power to vote twice by the castaway voted out at the previous Tribal Council.
^10 Teheiura was Charlotte's partner during the Tied Destinies twist, therefore he was also eliminated when Charlotte was voted out.
^11 The castaway who finished last in the sixth individual Immunity Challenge would be eliminated from the game. Éric came in last and was eliminated.
^12 At the final five, the remaining castaways competed in an elimination challenge where two castaways would be eliminated. Alexandra was evacuated mid-challenge while Moussa came in last and was eliminated.
^13 Claude and Inès did not vote as they could only vote for each other. By virtue of winning the Final Immunity Challenge, only Naoil voted.

Trivia

  • This is second Koh-Lanta season to have a cast made up of both new contestants and returning players, following Le Choc des Héros.
    • However, while the new contestants in Le Choc des Héros were famous athletes, this season's new contestants are ordinary people.
