What twist would you like to see introduced on Survivor?
« on: January 24, 2013, 05:34:01 AM »
Survivor has seen its fair share crazy and unpredictable twists to make the game even more interesting. Some we a favourite among the fans while others were pure flops. My question to everyone is: what if you could bring in your own twist in to the game?

I would like to see the game played in pre-existing teams of 2 (like TAR). 12 duos play the game as if they were 1 person. It would be interesting to see how they will use the twist to get ahead I the game.
TAR24 - Dave & Connor, Afganimals
Survivor Cagayan - Tony, Spencer
MKR5 - Greek Twins, Surfer Dads,
BBCan2 - Sabrina, Allison

I haven't seen BB9. I have only seen BB8 and 12 to get ready for MCBB. (I am on summer break and have no life. Don't judge me)

A tribe of 6 winners/memorable ppl from Survivor, A tribe of 6 winners/memorable ppl  from The Amazing Race (from 6 different teams), A tribe of 6 winners/memorable ppl  from Big Brother

Now that would be epic. CBS, please?

That would be awesome but why stop there. They could do "the ultimate battle of the reality stars" and the players play a season of BB,TAR and Survivor over the course of a year.

Ugh. The thing about Survivor is that it doesn't NEED any twists...the best Survivors have been when they casted interesting people and then just stepped back and let it go where it will. SURVIVOR in its original form doesn't need any twists...if the show fails, IMO, it will be because they messed with the concept TOO much!

I'd like a twist where there ARE no twists. 16 interesting/different people (all of whom are applicants), no HII's, maybe a tribe swap, merge at 10, Final 2 with a jury of 7

I actually do think they will do a Survivor Back To Basics very soon once they run out of ideas. With 16 new players completely and perhaps using back their VERY first location in Borneo...

NO TWISTS. But of course, Jeff doesn't tell them that there's no twists at all. Perhaps he throws them off by saying this season WILL BE very different from our past 2x seasons (except the very first)..

And each week, we have people guessing when returning players are coming, when the tribe switch is coming, when merge is coming but in fact, it doesn't happen at all and there's only a jury of 7! :lol3:

I've posted my twist somewhere in this forum. This is a double-vote twist.

Anyone who finds the double-vote idol (or wins it in challenges) can use it in the tribal council. In this case, s/he can vote twice. Both votes can go to either the same person or two different people,

Survivor: Celebrity Edition
That's never going to happen. Probst has said that he desipies the idea of that format. Also, "I'm a Celebrity; Get me Out of Here" failed miserably over here in the US of A.

The Double Vote seems to be rather common on online fantasy games, :lol: but it could work really well on an actual season! :hoot: :hoot:

Indirectly complimenting yourself I see. :lol3: But it would really suck if you ended up on the receiving end of it. Mackenzie :'(

I have one twist regarding tribe separation. Rural vs Urban. It's the only unused 'stereotype' I can think of where it's people like farmers or from the country against modern civilians or city slickers.

Twists I've experienced in online Survivor games.
1. Everyone has an idol (not totally feasible unless there is some control/limit over ot)
2. There is this sort of immunity item. It is given to a person who doesn't have one in each round until one person left doesn't have it and is eliminated. Some notes:
a. it can be obtained by finding one somewhere, being rewarded it after winning a challenge when deemed by tribe as MVP, etc..
b. if a person who has one is eliminated before the twist finishes, that person will have to give it to someone else who doesn't have one yet.

I am more interested in culture-related twists though. That's why Amazon, Pearl Islands, & China received so much positive attention. They took advantage of the super strong cultures of the Amazonians, Pirates & Chinese.
TARCW: Beast Boy 1 & Raven 1 (Leg 2*13G29S5C*Avatar: The Last Airbender*1st!)
TARJ: Heidi 5 & Vincent 3 (Leg8*2,604PHP+$1*Davao,Philippines*2nd!)

That's an interesting idea! :hoot: :hoot:

And if Survivor decides to merge that idea with their usual strategy of bringing returning players to 'lead' each tribe, Andrea Boehlke to take over Rural tribe plz. <3 :hrt:
