One Day Tribes is a twist to Double Tribal Councils that first appeared at the final eight of Survivor: Brunei and Survivor: Friends vs. Favorites, in the Survivor Auction challenge. It also appeared with the Auction at the final eight of Survivor: Occultus Island, final nine of Survivor: Reclamation and final ten of Polynesia. The Second Chances season plus Survivor: Eritrea, Survivor: Japan, and Survivor: Ayia Thekla all had this twist included in the Prized Position challenge. Survivor: Rejects vs. Royals was the first season to feature the twist as a result of The Vault, with the second being Survivor: Honduras. An alternate version of One Day Tribes, One Day Merge, was introduced in Survivor: Unfinished Business.

Overview

This twist was originally designed to coincide with the first outing of the Survivor Auction in Brunei, as a new way of making the merge game interesting. The idea is that the remaining players in the game are divided back into two tribes, like pre-merge, just for one Double Tribal Council. The success of the twist resulted in it returning the following season in the Auction of Friends vs. Favorites. After a season out, it returned for a third time in Occultus Island, this time without the accompanying Auction. It did not occur again until Reclamation, this time appearing the final nine, with one of the nine on Exile Island. The following season, Second Chances, saw nine people divided into two un-even tribes when the twist was a part of the new Prized Position challenge. It returned to the eight-person format in Eritrea and Japan, once again with Prized Position. After a four season hiatus, the twist was reprised in Rejects vs. Royals without the Survivor Auction or Prized Position challenges, but instead as a direct effect of The Vault. The twist appeared again for Polynesia at the final ten, along with the Survivor Auction once again. After another four season hiatus, the twist then appeared again for Ayia Thekla at the final ten, along with the Prized Position challenge, and was reprised as an effect of the Chaos Cards in Honduras, pulled by an in-game player following The Vault challenge.
