Survivor: Kiribati is the twenty-seventh season of the second generation Suitman's Survivor Series, which began on August 10, 2015, and ended with a live reunion on August 27, 2015.

It ended with Nick R. defeating Jasper L. at the Final Tribal Council in a 4-3 vote. At the Reunion, Jasper won Fan Favorite.

Production

This season features eighteen castaways, divided into three tribes of six. Three of the castaways are returning players. The tribes this season are named after the places in Kiribati. The tribes are Buariki, wearing yellow (diamond insignia), Paelau, in turquoise (spade insignia), and Riaria, with magenta (club insignia). On Day 10, the tribes merged into Autukia, wearing orange.

66 people applied, 16 competed in Survivor: Bhutan, a further 35 were cut from the casting, and the other 25 went on to become the castaways competing in the game, who were joined by the three returning players selected due to their sweepstakes victory. The full cast of 18 including tribal designations were revealed on August 30, 2015.

Twists

  • Roulette Wheel: New adaptation of the One World multiple switch twist. Each day, the roulette wheel spins and randomly decides weather the tribes stay the same, swap around, or all merge for a day.
  • Blackjack Idols: In order to receive a hidden immunity idol clue, castaways from the winning tribe must compete against the host in a simple game of blackjack. Win the hand and you get a clue. If a castaway is lucky enough to get 21, they will receive an idol straight up.
  • Slot Machine: Throughout the season castaways will get to have a go on the Slot Machine (decided by the Viewer's Voice twist) which has a number of items within. If luck is on their side, they may come out with something that can help their game. But if they are unlucky, it could be something that will hinder it.
  • Occupational Hazard: This season the castaways were divided into three tribes based upon their occupation or job aspirations. The "executives" were the Buariki tribe, the "educators" were the Paelau tribe, and the "entertainers" were the Riaria tribe. As similar division twist featured in Honduras.
  • Dastardly Dilemma: On Day 7, Christian, Jasper and Nick were unpicked to be on a tribe at the tribe swap by random draw, forced to attend Tribal Council, and faced with a dilemma which could give one player an extra advantage, while hindering the games of the other two.
  • Three-Tribe Format: This season is the eighth season to have more than two tribes after All-Stars, Seychelles, Cursed Hand, Reclamation, New Zealand, Japan and Conqueror's Crusade. It is also the second three-tribe season to have a mix of new and returning castaways, after Reclamation.
  • Returning Players: Three castaways returned this season for each correctly guessing the winner and winning the sweepstakes in a season from Last Leap, Conqueror's Crusade or Bhutan. The returnees were Brendon R., Chris C. and Ollie M. It is the first season since Brunei to feature the one per tribe returnee theme.
  • Viewer's Voice: Returning viewer participation twist from Bhutan. Each day the viewers have the power to select three people - one from each tribe - to have a go on the Slot Machine.
  • Tribe Switch: Due to the Roulette Wheel twist, the tribes underwent tribe switches and on various occasions, decided by random draw. There was also a tribe reset on Day 6, reverting the tribes back to their original members.
  • Double Tribal Council: On Day 6, two tribes went to Tribal Council. Due to the three-tribe format, the challenge was still for tribal immunity, but with only one tribe winning.
  • 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 two immune tribes. Extra idols can also be found by getting 21 in Blackjack Idols.
