Survivor: Ireland – Rejects vs. Royals is the twenty-eighth season of the second generation Suitman's Survivor Series, which began on August 29, 2015, and ended with a live reunion on October 21, 2015.

It ended with Julian S. defeating Andrew T. and Jacob B. at the Final Tribal Council in a 5-2-0 vote. At the Reunion, Lynette won Fan Favorite.

Production

This season features twenty castaways, divided into two tribes of ten. Ten members of the cast are returning players labeled as "rejects". Collectively they are relevant castaways who missed out on making the Last Leap cast. The other ten castaways are new players to Suitman's Survivor, who have already established themselves as known winners. They are labeled "royals". The tribes this season are named after the places in Ireland. The tribes are Galway, wearing green (veto sign insignia), and Kinsale, in purple (crown insignia). On Day 9, the tribes merged into Binn Mhór, wearing pink.

The entire cast of returning players and new players were hand-picked by production this season. The returning players were picked from the batch of hopefuls who almost made the cast for Last Leap, but lost out on a place to other competitors. The new players were hand-picked winners from other Survivor games. The cast and tribal designations were revealed in full on August 28, 2015.

Twists

  • Rejects vs. Royals: This season ten previously rejected returning castaways faced off against ten new people known elsewhere as group game royalty. Galway is the tribe of "rejects", while Kinsale is comprised of the "royals".
  • Vote Stealer: New power that can change the game. When a tribe wins immunity, each player can chose to answer a clue to the idol or a clue to the Vote Stealer power. At any one vote up until and including the Final Six, the power can be used to take away one's vote and claim it for oneself. This leaves the victim's vote voided, and gives the power player an extra vote. There are two Vote Stealers in play, one per-tribe.
  • Returning Players: Ten former castaways returned this season, chosen due to the fact they were rejected from the cast of Survivor: Last Leap.
  • Tribe Switch: On Day 5, the Galway and Kinsale tribes underwent a tribe switch, mixing up the tribes.
  • Double Tribal Council: On Day 13, due to the One Day Tribes twist, two people were voted out of the game back-to-back.
  • One Day Tribes: On Day 13, the eight remaining castaways were divided back into two tribes, just for a Double Tribal Council that day, before reverting back to a normal merged tribe.
  • 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. 
  • Extra Vote: This season featured an extra vote as a prize in The Vault challenge. It was won by Dakota M. Extra votes also formed a part of the Vote Stealer power this season.
