Survivor: El Salvador is the twenty-ninth season of the second generation Suitman's Survivor Series, which began on November 1, 2015, and ended with a live reunion on December 2, 2015.

It ended with Kelly R. defeating Hudson J. at the Final Tribal Council in a 4-3 vote. At the Reunion Kelly won Fan Favorite.

Production

This season features sixteen castaways, divided into two tribes of eight. For the first time, the entire cast was selected by the fans as part of the Viewer's Cast twist. The tribes are named after places in El Salvador. They are Apopa, wearing blue, and Ilopango, in green. Both tribes have a Mesoamerican-style tribal face in their tribe color as their insignia. On Day 6, the tribes merged into Santa Ana, wearing brown.

21 people were chosen, 5 were cut from the casting, and the other 16 went on to become the castaways competing in the game. The full cast of 16 including tribal designations were revealed on October 31, 2015.

Twists

  • Idol Rivals: Returning twist from East Timor. Each castaway was allocated a player on their original tribe, who must be voted out pre-merge in order for them to receive a Hidden Immunity Idol.
  • Old vs. Young: This season the castaways were divided into three tribes based upon their stated age. Castaways aged 18 or younger formed the Apopa tribe, while castaways older than 19 formed the Ilopango tribe.
  • Viewer's Cast: This season, the casting was handed over to the fans of Suitman's Survivor. Everyone was given the individual opportunity to select someone to be a member of the cast. If their chosen castaway wins the game, they win a pass to a future season.
  • Tribe Switch: On Day 3, the Apopa and Ilopango tribes underwent an early tribe switch, mixing up the tribes.
  • Hidden Immunity Idols: Due to the Idol Rivals twist, there were multiple hidden idols in play, which could be found by ensuring that an allocated player was voted out pre-merge.
  • Extra Vote: This season featured an extra vote as a prize in the Count Your Coins challenge. It was won by Kelly R.
