Selviytyjät Suomi is a Finnish reality-based competition television show based on the Survivor format.

The Finnish version is produced by Nelonen (formerly by MTV3), and currently airs at 7:30 pm on Sundays.

History[]

In 2003, a Finnish version of the Swedish reality show Expedition Robinson was greenlit for Nelonen. The show, named Suomen Robinson, aired two seasons from 2004 to 2005 before being canceled due to low ratings despite predictions from Nelonen that the show would be a success.

The show was originally presented by MTV3 in 2013, but due to low interest the show went on hiatus until 2018 when Nelonen started presenting the new seasons.

Format Variations[]

Division of Tribes[]

Number of Members per Tribe[]

  • For every season, since its inception, there has been two tribes of eight members (chosen by production).

  • Celebrities vs. Returnees: In Selviytyjät Suomi 7, the cast consisted of 8 Finnish celebrities competing against 8 returning players from previous seasons.

  • In Selviytyjät Suomi 3 and Selviytyjät Suomi 7, the castaways on each tribe were asked to draw a rock from a sack. One person from each tribe would draw a white rock, and whoever got the white rock had to switch tribes.

  • Debuting in Selviytyjät Suomi 2, there was a challenge: the five people who completed the challenge first would take the first five spots on the new merged tribe and they would later vote out one of the five remaining players; the five people facing elimination were not eligible to vote. Since Selviytyjät Suomi 5, the format has been tweaked in some way each season.
