Survivor is the most famous and successful reality game show in the television world.

However, it initially failed to attract the attention of any major broadcaster in Britain or the United States, and then it was sold to Sweden and became a major hit when it debuted in 1997 in Sweden.

Survivor is a game about surviving. It is broadcasted by the CBS television in American. Now the CBS is bring us the seventeenth season in Gabon. In most seasons, about 20 contestants are chosen in America from different occupations, different ages and different educational levels. These contestants are divided into 2-4 tribes, and each tribe has its own name, flag and camp with little life necessities. All the contestants are sent to a wild environment to survive 39 days. Each tribe experiences a reward challenge and an immunity challenge for the tribe every three days; in addition, the losing tribe in the immunity challenge will meet and talk to Jeff who is the host of this show and vote out one of their tribe members in the tribal council. Although the strategy to vote varies as the different contestants, at the beginning stage of the game, the strategies to vote are usually to keep the tribe stronger and keep oneself safer in the following game. In the game, the producer puts a hidden immunity idol in the exile island or in their own camps. If some contestant has found the immunity idol and played it in the tribal council, he or she could not be voted out. With the decreasing of the contestants, the game rules are altered. In general, there is a mergence when there are 10 contestants left. Contestants are all fight for themselves both in the reward challenge and the immunity challenge. Of course, the strategies change with the game going on. However, the final goal is the same that is how to survive to the end and get the 1 million dollars prize.

Survivor has been filmed in many countries, most of which are in tropical areas. It is also the first television show which has ever been filmed entirely within the People’s Republic of China. That is Survivor China, the fifth season of this show.

Survivor China is one of the most popular seasons in the Survivor’s history. There are many Chinese characteristics in it, such as the special Tribal Council combined with Buddhist factors; a 100 foot-tall replica of a historic temple used for Tribal Council; tribe names with Chinese characteristics, which are FEILONG and ZHANHU; a copy of The Art of War by Sun Tzu as a present for each tribe and challenge rewards to visit the places of interests in China, including The Great Wall and Shaolin Temple.

What’s more, there are also some memorable moments that survivor’s fan will never forget. Top of the list is the James’s event. James is a worker who digs graves, and lives in a poor life. The most surprising thing happened to him is that he was voted out when there were two immunity idols in his bag, but he did not use them at all. He ends his game because of his veracity and trustful character. But he also won the title of the most popular contestant with a prize of 10,000 dollars.

This show is so real that liars and dishonesty are very usual. Contestants do every thing they can to survive and win this game. However, it is just the reason why this show is so popular. As most contestants said: “It is just a game, once you are in the game, you should enjoy it.”
