Survivor: Reclamation is the seventeenth season of the second generation Suitman's Survivor Series, which began on August 11, 2014, and ended with a live reunion on August 26, 2014.

It ended with Jim B. defeating Joe E. at the Final Tribal Council in a 5-4 Jury vote. At the Reunion, Jim won Player of the Season, while Millie won Fan Favorite.

Production

This season features eighteen castaways. Half of the cast are returning Generation One winners. They have returned to 'reclaim' the game from the new breed, represented by the second half of the cast, who are all new to Suitman's Survivor, but are big names in other Tengaged group series. The tribes for this season are named after places in Papua New Guinea. The tribes are Alotau, wearing dark teal, Madang, in dark purple, and Talasea, with dark brown. The tribe insignias are Polynesian tiki faces. On Day 8, the tribes merged into Esa'ala, wearing grey.

The cast was once again hand-picked by the host. The candidates were invited solely for being a former First Generation winner who hasn't played more than one Gen Two season, or for being someone who has never played in the series yet is a worthy competitor as seen in other group games. The full cast of 18 was revealed on August 8, 2014, with the school-yard pick of the tribes on August 10, 2014.

This season was originally called Survivor: Burkina Faso. However, the decision was made to change the location to Papua New Guinea and introduce the Reclamation theme. Burkina Faso would later be re-picked as a location fourteen seasons later for Survivor: Unfinished Business.

Twists

  • The Reclamation: This season, nine former winners from the First Generation returned to square off against nine brand new players who have never played before, in a bid to reclaim their title that they won in Gen One, and prove that the old breeds are still superior to the new ones.
  • Viewer's Chieftain: At the start of the season, based off first impressions, the Viewer's Lounge selected three people to be named a Viewer's Chieftain. The way the role worked differed depending on the tribe's placements in challenges. Being a Cheiftain is both a blessing and a curse, as they have to make tough decisions, but ultimately gets to pick who is on their tribe.
  • Exile Island: Returning twist from Jordan, as part of the Viewer's Chieftain twist. This twist temporarily forces contestants out of the game so that they cannot vote or be voted out at Tribal Council. This season, the castaways sent here are decided by the Chieftain of the first-placed tribe in each challenge, and will be unable to compete in the next challenge or vote at the following Tribal Council if their tribe attends.
  • Three-Tribe Format: This season the castaways were once again divided into three tribes instead of the usual two. It is the fourth season to have more than two tribes after All-Stars, Seychelles, and the previous season, Cursed Hand.
  • Returning Players: This season, seven former Generation One winners returned for a second chance in Generation Two, after not making a significant impact on their first attempt, while two further Gen One winners returned for their first Gen Two attempt as they have not yet had a chance to participate.
  • Tribe Switch: On Day 5, the Alotau, Madang and Talasea tribes underwent a tribe switch, mixing up the tribes. The Madang tribe was dismantled in this switch, leaving only Alotau and Talasea.
  • Double Tribal Council: On Day 11, due to the One Day Tribes twist, two people were voted out of the game back-to-back.
  • One Day Tribes: Eight out of the nine remaining castaways were divided back into two tribes, just for a Double Tribal Council that day, before reverting back to a normal merged tribe. Immunity Winner Millie picked one person to join her on her tribe. She chose Joe.
  • 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. There was also an extra hidden idol in the post-merge camp.
  • Neglect and Reflect Idol: Returning from previous season, Survivor: Cursed Hand. This is a "special idol" as part of the Viewer's Chieftain twist that, if found, gives the user the chance to not only void votes against whoever it is played on, but also have those votes changed (or "reflected") to the person they are voting for, increasing their chances at surviving and beating a split vote. This season the Chieftain of second-placed tribe in each challenge selects a member of their tribe to search for the 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 This person had their votes doubled at one or more Tribal Councils throughout the season. The double votes are not counted as Total Votes for record-keeping reasons.
^2 Jason was voted out after a 2-2(1) tie between himself and Millie. Since there were only four voters, they both drew rocks to determine who was eliminated. Jason drew the purple rock and was eliminated.
^3 Nathan played a Hidden Immunity Idol, therefore eight (four) votes against him were not counted.
^4 Mearl was voted out after a 2-2 tie between himself and Alex. Since there were only four voters, they both drew rocks to determine who was eliminated. Mearl drew the purple rock and was eliminated.
^5 Jayson played the Neglect and Reflect idol on Alex, therefore four votes against him were not counted and were reflected onto Millie.
