Koh-Lanta: La Guerre des Chefs is the 23rd season of Koh-Lanta, the French version of Survivor. It is the first season to air after the cancellation of the series in May 2018 due to a sexual harassment scandal.

Twists

  • War of the Chiefs: for once, this season will start with the famous "Poles Challenge" (a classic in Koh-Lanta). The three castaways who will remain the longest on their pole will get to spend the night together and decide how the tribes will be divided. Each of them will then become the "Chief" of a tribe. They will be able to attend the other tribes' Tribal Councils, until the merge. Each chief has an important role during the Challenges. They have to lead their tribe to victory, and accept the defeat for their tribe. At each Reward Challenge, the chief of the winning tribe must make a choice between two rewards. The one which they have not picked then goes to the tribe which arrived in second place.
  • Chief Immunity Bracelet: Each chief starts the game with a Chief Immunity Bracelet which functions just like a Hidden Immunity Idol and once they play out their bracelet, they lose their special status. Their tribes need to agree unanimously on the name of a new chief who will then receive a new bracelet. If a tribe fails to agree, the chiefs of the other two tribe need to decide for them.
  • Three Tribes: For the second time in Koh-Lanta history, the game starts with three tribes instead of the usual two. A blue tribe, Ikalu​​, is added in the mix with the traditional red and yellow tribes, Kama​​ and Tabuo.
  • Ambassadors: At the merge, all tribe chiefs become the ambassadors to a special meeting. Their purpose is to directly eliminate a castaway from the game, and if the three ambassadors do not agree on a name, one of the three is eliminated by a rock draw.
  • Black Vote: The black vote keeps 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.
  • Tied Destinies: On Day 23, the twelve people remaining are divided into six 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.
  • Elimination Challenge: On Day 33, all remaining castaways, take part in a special challenge where the person finishing last is directly eliminated from the game.
  • Replacements: Due to two evacuations, two castaways returned into the game after being voted out.

Chiefs History

The three castaways who stood the longest on their pole during the opening "Poles Challenge" earned the right to become Tribe Chief. More than just the chiefs composed the tribes on Day 2 and have important roles to play in every challenges : they have to lead their tribe to victory, and accept the defeat for their tribe. For example, at each Reward Challenge, the chief of the winning tribe must make a choice between two rewards. The one which they have not picked then goes to the tribe which arrived in second place.

The chiefs start the game with an Immunity Bracelet (which works just like a regular Hidden Immunity Idol) and also have the opportunity to attend the other tribes' Tribal Councils, until the merge. Thus, they gain important insight on the dynamics of their rival tribes.

A chief can be dethroned by being voted out or by playing their Chief Immunity Bracelet. The following day, the remaining tribe members need to choose a new chief unanimously. If they cannot come to a unanimous agreement, then, the chiefs from the opposite two tribes must decide for them. Once a new chief is chosen, they receive their own Chief Immunity Bracelet.

Notes:

^1 Chloé used her Chief Immunity Bracelet, negating two votes against her.

^3 Sophie was Brice's partner during the pairs twist, therefore she was also eliminated when he was voted out.
^4 Cyril played a Hidden Immunity Necklace on himself, therefore 6 votes cast against her were negated.
^5 Nicolas came in last in the special Immunity Challenge and was directly eliminated from the game.
^6 With a deadlocked tie between Clo and Cyril, both of them were forced to draw rocks to determine who would be eliminated. ^7 At the final five, the remaining castaways competed in an elimination challenge, where two castaways were eliminated. Clo and Aurélien came in last and were therfore eliminated.

Notes:
  • The votes in italics are "black votes": the castaway voting was given the power to vote twice by the person voted out at the previous Tribal Council.

^1 Aliséa was medically evacuated. No vote occurred for her removal and Frédéric came back into the game to replace her.
^2 Emilie used her Chief Immunity Bracelet, but no votes were cast against her.
^3 Carinne was medically evacuated. No vote occurred for her removal and Victor came back into the game to replace her.
^4 Chloé used her Chief Immunity Bracelet, negating two votes against her.
^5 Sophie was Brice's partner during the Tied Destinies twist, therefore she was automatically eliminated at Tribal Council.
^6 Maud had an extra vote cast against her at Tribal Council due to finishing last in the Immunity Challenge.
^7 Cyril played a Hidden Immunity Necklace on himself, therefore 6 votes cast against her were negated.
^8 Nicolas came in last in the special Immunity Challenge and was directly eliminated from the game.
^9 Tribal Council resulted in a tie. Per the rules, a second vote was held where the castaways could only vote for those involved in the tie.
^10 A deadlock tie occurred, thus forcing the tied castaways to draw rocks to determine who would be eliminated.
^11 Cyril lost the rock draw against Clo and was eliminated from the game.
^12 At the final five, the remaining castaways competed in an elimination challenge, where two castaways were eliminated. Clo and Aurélien came in last and were eliminated.
^13 Maud and Steeve did not vote as they could only vote for each other. By virtue of winning the Final Immunity Challenge, only Cindy voted.

Trivia

  • This is the first time in Koh-Lanta history that 21 contestants all start their adventure at the same time (in previous seasons with 21 contestants, they started with only 18 or 20 of them and the other(s) came in the game after day one).
  • This is only the second time that both finalists were female castaways, fifteen years after Delphine Bano and Isabelle Seguin from Bocas del Toro.
    • As both women were tied and considered Sole Survivors, Maud is the first female castaway to beat another female at the Final Tribal Council.
