Twists Edit

  • David vs. Goliath: The castaways were divided into tribes defined by their degree of success in life. The David​​ tribe is comprised of underdogs, while the Goliath tribe is comprised of overachievers.
  • Hidden Immunity Idol: In addition, temporary Hidden Immunity Idols may be offered on Challenge Island which are only usable for three Tribal Councils after obtaining them.
  • Challenge Island: Returning from Sri Lanka & Camarines with new revisions. Contestants will be sent to Challenge Island where they will be presented with a choice to participate in a challenge in order to receive an advantage. If they successfully complete the challenge then they will receive an advantage in the game. If they lose the challenge then they will earn a disadvantage. During the pre-merge, the losers of the reward or immunity challenge will send a member from the winning tribe to Challenge Island. During the merge, the tribe would unanimously decide to send a member or randomly choose a name from a bag.
    • Legacy Advantage: The Legacy Advantage returned to the game, but with a new power for the holder on Day 37. The holder will cast the sole vote at Tribal Council. The advantage may be willed to another play up until there are 9 players remaining in the game. Once there are 9 players remaining in the game if the player in possession is voted out with the advantage then the power will expire.
    • Two Buffs: Seychelle received two buffs of the David and Goliath tribe. At the upcoming tribe swap, she could switch two people, one from each tribe. On Day 10, she chose to switch Garrett and Rich. Garrett who was originally Gergasi became Katapel, and Rich who was originally Katapel became Gergasi.
    • Safety Without Power: The castaway sent to Challenge Island on Day 10 would be eligible to win an advantage that allows them to leave Tribal Council before the vote, effectively making them immune, at the cost of not voting. This advantage is usable until the final seven.
  • Tribe Switch: On Day 10, the sixteen remaining castaways were spread across two tribes of eight.
