Survivor Philippines: Palau is the second season of Survivor. It was set in Palau, which had previously hosted Survivor: Palau and Survivor: Micronesia, albeit in a different area.

Amanda Coolley Van Cooll won the title of Sole Survivor winning in a 4-3-0 against finalists Justine Ferrer and Jef Gaitan.

Production

The second season was set in Peleliu, Palau. The season was made up of 16 castaways, separated into two tribes whose names were based on one of the starting tribes in the American version's Survivor: Palau and Survivor: Micronesia, Koror and Airai respectively.

In this season, a twist called Isla Purgatoryo (Purgatory Island) was in play, where an eliminated castaway during the pre-merge phase was sent to, living on the island alone with some supplies and a guard dog, a golden retriever named Jumbo, against snakes on the island. If the inhabitant's original tribe wins a Reward Challenge, the inhabitant secretly gets a portion of their reward. During a castaway's stay on Isla Purgatoryo, they would also battle with the next eliminated castaway sent to the island in a "Face-Off Challenge", in which the loser was eliminated the game for good, while the winner earned the right to stay in the game. After nine were left in the game, the winner of the last Face-Off Challenge would return to the game, with individual immunity at the first post-merge Tribal Council.

The Black and White Pearl twist from the previous season returned along with a new variant, the "Blood Pearl", in which two votes were counted against the recipient.

This season was the last season to be hosted by Paolo Bediones, as he later moved to another TV network.[1]

Twists/Changes

  • Isla Purgatoryo: Similar to Redemption Island, voted out castaways would be sent in Isla Purgatoryo (literally, "Purgatory Island"), in which the residents would have to battle against each other for the right to stay in the island. At the time of the merge (when only nine active castaways are left), the last person remaining on the island would return to the game, with individual immunity at their first Tribal Council.
  • Tribe Switch: On Day 10, a Tribe Switch occurred resulting in having three members of each tribe being sent to the other tribe.
  • Hidden Immunity Object: Similar to the American version's Hidden Immunity Idol, Hidden Immunity Objects would be hidden after the merge, which could negate any votes cast against the user in a single Tribal Council up until the final six.
  • Pearls: At certain Tribal Councils after the merge, the eliminated castaway would give Pearl(s) to someone to still in the game.
    • White Pearl: Negates one vote against the holder at the next Tribal Council.
    • Black Pearl: Penalizes one vote against the holder at the next Tribal Council. If lost, the holder would receive two votes.
    • Blood Pearl: Penalizes two votes against the holder at the next Tribal Council. If lost, the holder would receive three votes.
  • Double Elimination: At the second post-merge Tribal Council, there was another vote to be held immediately after the first vote. The second placer during the previous Immunity Challenge would have individual immunity at the second vote.
  • Final Three: For the first time in the Philippine version, a three finalists would face a jury of seven.
