Survivor (サバイバー Sabaibā) was a Japanese reality competition program based on Survivor. Four seasons were produced and aired in Japan from 2002 to 2003.

Format

The show follows the same general format as the other editions of the show. 16 castaways are split between two teams and are taken to a remote, isolated location and are forced to live off the land with meager supplies for 39 days. Frequent physical and mental challenges are used to pit the teams against each other for rewards, such as food or luxuries, or for immunity, forcing the other tribe to attend Tribal Council, where they must vote off one of their players.

Once about half the players are remaining, the tribes are merged into a single tribe, and competitions are on an individual basis; winning immunity prevents that player from being voted out. Most players that are voted out at this stage form the jury. Once down to two people, a Final Tribal Council is held where the remaining players plead their case to the jury as to why they should win the game. The jury then votes for which player they believe should be considered the Sole Survivor and be awarded the grand prize of 10,000,000 yen.
