Survivor: Island of the Idols is the thirty-ninth season of Survivor.

Production

Starting with this season, Canadian citizens are eligible to apply for Survivor.[3]

The mentors, Rob and Sandra, were given creative control over the happenings on the Island of the Idols, from the lessons they will teach and how they will go about them. Jeff Probst stated production would have built a shelter for Rob and Sandra, but the two refused and insisted to relive the Survivor experience.[4][5]

Twists/Changes

  • Mentors: Two former Survivor winners, Rob Mariano and Sandra Diaz-Twine, would return for this season as mentors to the castaways this season. Neither coach is in contention to win the million dollar prize.
  • Island of the Idols: Selected castaways will be banished to the eponymous Island of the Idols where they will be taught survival skills and game strategies by Rob and Sandra. The mentee may choose to be tested on what they learned from the mentors for a chance to win an advantage in the game, otherwise they will lose their vote at the following Tribal Council. Jeff Probst describes the island as a "Survivor boot camp."[6][7][8]
  • Hidden Immunity Idol: A Hidden Immunity Idol is hidden at each camp. In addition, castaways may earn one on the Island of the Idols by passing the mentor's test. These idols are only good for their next two to three Tribal Councils after receiving them.
