Tumblr Survivor: Crossroads is the sixty-sixth season of the online version of the reality TV show Survivor.

Production

The blog for the season is Survivor Crossroads and the tag for the season is #tscrossroads.

This season was scheduled to come before Tumblr Survivor: Jordan Pines, but the seasons were reversed last minute to accommodate for host schedules.

Although Owen hosted the season alone, both Trevor and Rhone helped in making the season's graphics.

Twists/Changes

  • Returning Players: The cast for this season was composed of twelve players from previous seasons (including three previous winners), and six new players.
  • One World: For the first round of the game, castaways would live together on a shared beach, meaning that even if they weren't on the same tribe they could cross-tribal communicate.
  • Crossroads: Throughout the season, the castaways will be given a series of decisions that will directly influence the structure of the game.
    • Crossroads #1: On the first night, the castaways were able to choose whether or not they liked their tribes. If at least two people from each tribe decided not to stay, then the tribes would be completely re-randomized. Ultimately, all eighteen castaways chose to remain with the original tribes they were given.
    • Crossroads #2: In Episode 2 (Castle Crossroads), the member of the losing tribe that scored the highest in the immunity challenge was able to choose someone from the winning tribe to attend Tribal Council and cast a vote, as a representative of the Royal Council. Emily scored the highest on Fatum, and chose Bryan from Imperium to vote with them.
    • Crossroads #3: In Episode 3 (The Voyage), the castaways were offered a chance to mutiny from their tribes. Once again, nobody took the offer, and the tribes stayed the same.
    • Crossroads #4: In Episode 3 (The Voyage), one captain from each tribe was elected to compete in the immunity challenge. The losing tribe would only have three nominated castaways who were eligible to "walk the plank" - the losing captain, someone of the losing captain's choice, and someone of the winning captain's choice. As the losing captain, Johnny chose Nicole. As the winning captain, Brandon chose Ryan. This meant that only Johnny, Nicole, and Ryan were eligible to receive votes at Fatum's Tribal Council.
    • Crossroads #5: In Episode 4 (The Prehistoric Era), the castaways each picked a kit numbered 1-15. These kits sorted the castaways into new tribes. As the winner of reward, however, Haley was able to choose one person to be exiled, keeping them off of a tribe and safe from tribal until the next round. Haley elected to exile herself.
    • Crossroads #6: In Episode 5 (The Abandoned Arcade), the each castaway was offered a deal - they could take an anonymous disadvantage in the immunity challenge (ranging from 10 to 50 percent) in order to receive a reward. Each castaway was told that they were the only one to receive this offer, however, all fourteen were given the opportunity. Johnny, Haley, John, Ryan, Autumn, Chris, Brandon, Rebecka, and Sam all took the offer.
    • Crossroads #7: In Episode 6 (The Haunted Mansion), the castaways were given the chance to "split up" and explore the mansion. The two tribes split themselves into groups - and these groups were then put together to form new tribes in the second tribe swap of the season. Because Julia was put into a group by herself, she was offered a challenge. If she completed the challenge, she would escape the Haunted Mansion without attending Tribal. Julia was able to complete it, and was safe for the round.
    • Crossroads #8: In Episode 8 (The Underground), the castaways were given the decision to either escape the collapsing Underground, or stay. If they stayed, they would get to vote at Tribal Council, but would be forced to sit out of the next Immunity Challenge. If they escaped, they would forfeit their vote at Tribal, but would be eligible to compete in the Immunity Challenge. Only Sam, Autumn, and Jake chose to escape and gave up their votes.
    • Crossroads #9: In Episode 9 (The Woods), Dane won a reward that allowed him to choose whether to stay and vote at the episode's second Tribal Council, or leave the Woods early and be safe from the vote (therefore forfeiting his own vote). Dane chose to leave and advanced to the next round.
    • Crossroads #10: In Episode 10 (The City), Haley, as winner of the Reward Challenge, was given the choice between turning the city lights on or turning them off. If she chose Light, then all of the votes would be publicly revealed at Tribal Council. If she chose Dark, then the winner of the Immunity Challenge and the vote count at Tribal Council would be left anonymous - only the name of the person voted out would be revealed. Haley chose Light.
    • Crossroads #11: In Episode 13 (Great Hall of Stories), Autumn won the Final Reward Challenge, and was given the opportunity to make the final Crossroads Decision. She was able to decide whether the season would end in a Final Three or a Final Two. If she chose Final Three, then the four people left would compete in one last Immunity Challenge. If she chose Final Two, she would get immunity for the final four vote, but then the final three castaways would have their own Final Immunity Challenge. Autumn chose to end the season with a Final Two.
  • The Storymaster: Each round, a castaway will be selected to play the role of Storymaster. This person will choose the castaways' next destination, which will potentially release different twists and competitions into the game. The following story locations were used throughout the season: The Great Hall of Stories, Castle Crossroads, The Voyage, The Prehistoric Era, The Abandoned Arcade, The Haunted Mansion, Mount Olympus, The Underground, The Woods, The City, The Crossroads Carnival, and Outer Space.
  • The Book of Tales: Each round, castaways are given the opportunity to search the Book of Tales, a choose-your-own-adventure styled story that holds both advantages and disadvantages. The format of the Book of Tales changed from round to round. Among the items hidden in the Book were coins, which unlocked later advantages, challenge advantages and disadvantages, a vote revealer, and idol halves that could be combined to form whole idols.
  • Reward Challenge Decisions: In most episodes, the castaways were given the option to play one of two different reward challenges, each with a different reward.
  • Double Tribal Council: In Episode 6, the tribes swapped into four tribes of three. Two of these tribes attended Tribal Council, where two people were voted out in the same episode. Later, in Episode 9, it was revealed after Tribal Council that another vote would be taking place in just twenty-four hours. Because Dane won reward, he was safe from the second vote.

Notes:

^1 Because Emily received the highest score of her tribe during the immunity challenge, she was able to choose a player from another tribe to vote at Fatum's Tribal Council. She selected Bryan, who cast a vote but was unable to be voted against.
