Koh-Lanta: Le Retour des Héros is the ninth season of Koh-Lanta.

In a change to previous installments, the contestants are returning contestants from the eight previous seasons. In addition, there are also only 21 days of competition with new twist.

Twists/Changes

  • Returning Players: 14 former castaways returned to compete for another shot at the title and prize money.
  • Schoolyard Pick and Elimination: On Day 1, a challenge occurred where the first man and first woman would earn the right to chose their tribes. The last man and woman to finish the challenge would be automatically eliminated.
  • New Tribe Member: At the first Reward Challenge on Day 4, the winning tribe would be given the opportunity to chose one of the eliminated castaways at the Day 1 challenge to join their tribe. By a 3-2 vote, Jean-Bernard joined Tupan and returned to the game.
  • Ambassadors: At this season's summit, the ambassadors must unanimously agree to eliminated one castaway from the game. If they fail to come to a consensus, one of the ambassadors would be eliminated by rock draw.

Notes:

^1 Amel and Jean-Bernard were eliminated on Day 1 for losing the first challenge.
^2 At the ambassadors meeting, Catherine and Philippe could not decide on a castaway to eliminate. Because of this,
they drew rocks, and Philippe was eliminated as a result.

^3 At the final four, the remaining castaways competed in an elimination challenge. Jean-Bernard came in last and
was eliminated.
