Survivor Philippines is the Philippine edition of the Survivor franchise. Each year from 2008-2011, one season is aired.

Its slogan, Pautakan, Pagalingan, Patatagan can be roughly translated to "Outwit, Outplay, Outlast" in Filipino. The prize for being the Sole Survivor (in addition to the title) is a cash prize of 3,000,000 (roughly $65,000) - the highest cash prize seen in a Philippine television game show.


The first season of Survivor Philippines aired in 2008, produced by GMA Network. Paolo Bediones hosted the first two seasons, before moving to TV5 following the second season.[1] He was replaced by Richard Gutierrez, who hosted the last two seasons. The series concluded after four seasons in February 2012.

Format Changes

Unlike the American version, which condenses the events of each cycle of 2–3 days into one episode, the Philippine version split each cycle into five 30-45 minute episodes. Normally, Reward Challenges are aired during a Monday or Tuesday episode, the Immunity Challenges on a Wednesday or Thursday episode, and Tribal Council on a Friday. Sometimes, if a Tribal Council culminates in a close vote, the deciding vote is revealed the following Monday, to extract the most suspense.

The Reunion Show is pre-recorded, and is separate from the live finale, where the winner is announced.

Another significant change is that, in addition to the starting tribes, the name of the merged tribe is also determined by production.
