Survivor: Bingo's Battalion vs. Suitman's Soldiers is the twentieth season of the second generation Suitman's Survivor Series, and the thirty-fourth season of Bingo's Survivor Series, which began on November 13, 2014, and ended with a live reunion on December 9, 2014.

It ended with James S. defeating Ryan C. and Eric E. at the Final Tribal Council in a 4-3-2 vote. At the Reunion, Ryan won Player of the Season (an award which became defunct as of the following season), while Mikey won Fan Favorite.

Production

This season features ten castaways from Bingo's Survivor Series, and ten castaways from Suitman's Survivor Series, battling it out in a collaborative season. The castaways chosen are those who came close to the end, but fell just short. They have all made the finale episode of a season, but not a Final Tribal Council in either series. The tribes this season are named after the respective hosts. They are Bingo's Battalion, wearing yellow, and Suitman's Soldiers, in purple. The tribe insignias are the avatars of Bingo21 and SuitMan13. On Day 9, they merged into Bae Yon Cae, wearing orange.

The cast was hand-picked by the two competing hosts, with Bingo picking for his Battalion, and Suitman selecting for his Soldiers. While all the Suitman picks were past Second Generation players, the Bingo picks varied with returnees and newbies, as they were all selected based on his series. The full cast of 20 and the tribal designations were revealed following the Survivor: Jan Mayen reunion on November 5, 2014.

This collaboration season was originally intended on being with Chris D. aka Gaiaphagee and set in the country of Niue. However, the location was changed to the Falklands and, due to clashing commitments, the collaboration host was changed. The chosen collaborator, bingo21, would later play Suitman's Survivor himself as Jarrod B. in Survivor: Japan.

Twists

  • Bingo's Battalion vs. Suitman's Soldiers: Ten castaways from Suitman's series, known as "The Soldiers", battled against ten castaways from Bingo's series, known as "The Battalion". These castaways were chosen for reaching the finale episode, but not the Final Tribal Council.
  • Redemption Island: Returning twist from Brunei. When a player gets voted out from Tribal Council, that player will not be eliminated right away. Instead, the said contestant will go to Redemption Island. When the next person gets voted out, the two players will compete in a "duel." The winner gets to stay at the island, while the loser is eliminated from the game for good. At a certain point, the last person standing on Redemption Island will return to the main game and will continue their pursuit of the one million dollar prize and the title of Sole Survivor. This twist was altered this season with the edition of Rivalry Arena.
  • Rivalry Arena: A new addition to Redemption Island. Now voted out castaways had to first earn their spot on Redemption Island by defeating their "rival", elected at the start of the season. Those who do so advanced to the island to compete to return, while those who fail were automatically out for good.
  • Returning Players: Ten former Suitman's Survivor castaways, who placed either fifth, fourth or third in a past season, returned to compete for the Suitman's Soldiers tribe this season. The opposing tribe, while representing Bingo's Survivor, did also contain past Second Generation players, chosen under the same selection criteria.
  • Double Tribal Council: On Day 1, both tribes went to Tribal Council to vote someone out, with the challenge being individual.
  • Hidden Immunity Idols: There was one hidden idol placed in each tribe camp, which could be found by correctly guessing the answer to the clues sent daily to the immune tribe. There was also an extra hidden idol in the post-merge camp, which was found and played early, so replaced with a fourth idol.

The Total Votes is the number of votes a castaway received during Tribal Councils where the castaway was eligible to be voted out of the game, excluding tiebreakers. It does not include the votes received during the final Tribal Council.

^1 Porsche was voted out after a 3-3 tie between Mikey and Sydney led to a re-vote, in which the vote tied again 2-2. Porsche, Newz, Robby, and Ryan were forced to pick rocks. Porsche picked the purple rock and was eliminated.
^2 Mikey played a hidden immunity idol on himself, therefore four votes against him were not counted.
^3 Newz was voted out after a 2-2 tie between himself and Eric. Since there were only four voters, they both drew rocks to determine who was eliminated. Newz drew the purple rock and was eliminated.
^4 Mikey played a hidden immunity idol on Ryan, therefore six votes against Ryan were not counted.
