Storyline

Over the spring of 2000, sixteen average Americans (divided into two tribes which eventually merge into one) were sequestered on the deserted island of Pulau Tiga for 39 days. For their stay, they must learn to live as a tribe, although eventually, it is everyone for themselves. They compete in challenges for "luxuries" (a barbecue, a phone call home, etc.) and immunity. Every three days, the losers of the latter challenges must face tribal council, where they will account for their actions by voting one person off of the island. At the end of day 39, there will be only one survivor left who will leave the island with one million dollars. Based on the Swedish game show, "Operation Robinson." Written by ZeroG1

Trivia

Although the second season was set in what the producers called the Outback of Australia, the location was only slightly remote by Australian standards (it was within three hours drive of Cairns, a small city on the coastline), and it was located in a wet, semi-tropical area rather than the arid, true outback.

Goofs

Frequent continuity errors. It's clear that many scenes were filmed hours or days apart and then edited together with =out consideration for whether or not they visually flowed together. See more »

Alternate Versions

The finale episode featured the million dollar winner walking through an airport and getting into their brand new car. This scene had to be filmed four different times, each with a member of the final four in order to keep the secret of who really won. See more »

Never enough time
26 September 2002 | by nxgn_not_notSee all my reviews

Letting the oldest pick teams is interesting, but to me It gives two people too much power right off. I will be very surprised not to see one of those two in the final 4. As to whether youth is better than experience, I think we have already seen the results there. I was actually hoping for a war of the sexes, I thought that would be . an additional plot point.

I would also like Mr Probst to let us see a little more about how the participants are picked for challenge elements. It seems like they always cut away and come Back. If Ghandia wanted to do that puzzle and froze up, that should tell us a lot about her. If nobody wanted to do that puzzle and she was the only one willing to step up, that would tell us a whole lot about the rest of her team. Staying under the radar is one thing, sacrificing the teams efforts is another. I think it is fair to say that Rob Mariano in the Marquesas series showed us all what killing off your own team for personal power gets you.
