Survivor: Solomon Islands – Archetypes is the thirty-fifth season of the second generation Suitman's Survivor Series, which began on June 25, 2016, and ended with 'The Reckoning' on July 13, 2016.

The season continued on through Turney vs. Suitman: Worlds Collide, where the nine remaining castaways merged with the seven remaining houseguests from Turney Time Big Brother 11.

Solomon Islands


This season features twenty-four returning castaways, divided into three tribes of eight. Each person has been cast for fitting one of the six core Survivor player "archetypes". There is one of each archetype per tribe. This is the first season since Last Leap and Conqueror's Crusade to feature a 24-person cast. The last season to feature an "expanded" cast of more than 20 castaways was Polynesia, with a 21-person cast. One of the twenty-four castaways entered the season through the Last Chance Saloon twist.

The tribes are named after places in the Solomon Islands. All tribes have a different tribal man drawing as their insignia. They are Choiseul, wearing teal, Gavutu, in yellow, Rendova, with orange, and Taumako, wearing purple. On Day 11, the tribes merged into Owaraha, wearing dark blue.

The entire cast of returning players were hand-picked by production this season, chosen from people who had registered their interest to play. The castaways were chosen for fitting one of the six archetype categories of the season - Heroes, Villains, Gamebots, Characters, Flops and Wildcards. Furthermore, one of the Wildcard castaways won their way into the game from a group of 14 initially unsuccessful past castaways. The full cast of 24 was revealed on June 20, 2016, and tribal designations were decided by a school-yard pick on the first day of the season - June 25, 2016.


  • Archetypes: Each castaway was selected for embodying one of six Survivor archetypes – Heroes, Villains, Characters, Gamebots, Flops or Wildcards. One person from each archetype was placed on each tribe.
  • Immunity Pacts: Returning from Survivor: Conqueror's Crusade, this time divided by the Archetypes. The pact with the most members remaining at the time of the merge earns exclusive immunity for the first two votes, putting them at an immediate advantage.
  • The Reckoning: The nine remaining Solomon Islands castaways merged with the seven remaining Turney Time Big Brother 11 houseguests on July 13, 2016, sparking a brand new continuation hybrid season, Turney vs. Suitman: Worlds Collide.
  • Fake Idols: This season all castaways who answered correctly for the hidden idols, including the people who actually found one, were only be told that they may have found the idol. The only way the castaways knew if they have really had found an idol was to play it at Tribal Council.
  • Last Chance Saloon: Following the casting of all but one of the main cast, a group of potential castaways entered into a mini version of Survivor, in a bid to succeed over all the others and gain the twenty-fourth spot on the season.
  • Four-Tribe Format: 25 seasons after its first appearance in Survivor: Seychelles, the tribes were divided into four tribes instead of the usual two or three. It is the thirteenth total time that a season has featured more than the standard two tribes. This season also featured the Three-Tribe Format on two occasions, following both full tribe swaps.
  • Returning Players: Twenty-four former players returned this season, due to their reputation and recognition as a specific Survivor player archetype. It is the ninth all-returnee season.
  • Double Tribe Switch: On Day 4, the Choiseul, Gavutu, Rendova and Taumako tribes underwent a tribe switch, mixing up the tribes. The Choiseul tribe was dismantled in this swap. Then, on Day 10, there was a second full swap - following the dissolve of Rendova on Day 7 - which re-established Choiseul as a tribe.
  • Tribe Dissolve: On Day 7, for the first time in the Second Generation, a tribe was dissolved with it's members absorbed by the two remaining tribes. The Rendova tribe was the dissolved tribe, while Taumako absorbed two members, and Gavutu received the other three.
  • Double Tribal Council: On Day 10, 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 main hidden idol up for grabs, which can be found by correctly guessing the answer to the clues sent daily to the three winning tribes. The first place tribe would also gain a clue to a second idol. A third idol entered the game on Day 10, which functioned as the merge idol.
