Survivor: Moral vs. Merciless is the fifteenth season of the second generation Suitman's Survivor Series, which began on June 21, 2014 and ended with a live reunion on July 7, 2014.

It ended with Wyatt A. defeating Neil N. and Kiko R. at the Final Tribal Council in a 4-3-2 Jury vote. At the Reunion, Wyatt won Player of the Season, while Jamie won Fan Favorite.

Production

This season features the return of twenty former "All-Star" castaways, ten of which are known for their loyalty, truthfulness, integrity and morality, and ten of which are known for being ruthless, cunning, manipulative and merciless. The tribes this season are named after these two themed groups. The Moral tribe wears pastel blue, and the Merciless tribe wears pastel red. The tribe insignias are tribal markings of an angel (Moral) and a devil (Merciless). On Day 10, the tribes merged into Harmonie, wearing pastel black.

As with Survivor: All-Stars and the previous season, Survivor: Occultus Island, the cast was hand-picked by the host without applications taking place. The returning players were picked solely based upon how well they played in their previous season(s). They are all classed as "All-Stars". The cast is then divided upon their individual reputation as either a Moral or Merciless castaway. The full cast of 20 and the tribal designations were revealed live on April 26, 2014.

Moral vs. Merciless of course takes it's theme from the popular Heroes vs. Villains format, but was re-named in order to avoid confusion with the Gen One season of the same name. This season was originally set to be the eighteenth season, with Survivor: Second Chances taking this spot. However the seasons were swapped so more newbie seasons could increase the number of pre-merge candidates for the Second Chance theme.

Twists

  • Moral vs. Merciless: Ten of the most Moral castaways, who played the game with integrity and honor, battled against ten of the most Merciless castaways, who played cunningly and manipulatively, for the title of Sole Survivor.
  • Idol Bonds: Each castaway in the season is secretly 'bonded' with a player from the other tribe. If both partners make the merge, they will receive one Hidden Immunity Idol to SHARE. If someone's partner gets voted out pre-merge, their chances at getting an idol perish. Furthermore, if a player gets three or more un-voided votes at a pre-merge Tribal Council without being voted out, their idol partnership will be revealed publicly, so all castaways know one of the idol bonds. The way a shared idol works is simple - the first to play the idol gets its worth, the other goes without.
  • Temporary Exile Island: Exile Island returned for the first time since Jordan. On Day 5, the Viewer's Lounge elected one person from each tribe to go to Exile Island and stay there until the beginning of the Jury phase at Final Twelve, guaranteeing them at least a spot on the Jury. They were unable to vote or be voted out at Tribal Council during this time.
  • Returning Players: Twenty former "All-Star" castaways from the first fourteen seasons returned to compete again, chosen because of the way they played and the path they chose in their respective season(s).
  • Double Tribal Council: On Day 7, both tribes went to Tribal Council to vote someone out, with the challenge being individual.
  • Hidden Immunity Idols: Despite the Idol Bonds twist, there was still 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. However, pre-merge-found idols this season had to be played before the merge.
