Les Aventuriers de Koh-Lanta is the first season of the French version of Survivor, Koh-Lanta. This season aired on Saturdays and Sundays at 6:55 p.m.

Production

With the resounding success of Survivor: Borneo, the French television network TF1 decided to make their own version of Survivor.
Sixteen contestants were chosen by the producers to participate the show. They were marooned on the coast of Ko Lanta in Thailand, where they would live for 43 days and only one would win the €100,000 prize.

Twists

  • Ambassadors: At the merge, each tribe send one ambassador to a meeting. The two ambassadors must agree on one contestant who would receive an extra vote against them at the next Tribal Council. If they don't agree on a name, the two of them draw rock, and the extra vote is against the one who loses the draw.
  • Final Four Elimination: At the final four, the remaining castaways compete in the Fallen Comrades challenge, and the contestant with the fewest right answers is eliminated from the game.
