Next Season Andalucía

Tumblr Survivor: Japan - Heroes vs. Villains III is the sixtieth season of the online version of the Reality TV show, Survivor.

Production

The blog for the season is Japan and the tag for the season is #ReturnRevengeRedemption.

Recruitment for the season began January of 2017, while applications for the season unofficially opened on May 1st and officially opening on July 27th and closing on August 15th.

This season was originally planned to be hosted by Connor and Catherine. Josh was added to the hosting team in mid 2016. With Connor beginning school a few days after the start of the season, Nick Wentworth joined the hosting team shortly before applications closed.

Casting was finalized August 16th. From the beginning, it was the goal of the hosting team to create a cast that featured well rounded players and individuals who embody being "heroes" and "villains" as a whole in the Tumblr Survivor community, and not focus as highly on previous game placements and "All-Star" status. The final cast was a group of 26 players who were seeking to return, reinvent, and redefine the game of Tumblr Survivor in their own unique way.

Production Team

Twists/Changes

  • Heroes vs. Villains: A returning twist from Heroes vs. Villains and Heroes Vs. Villains II, 13 of the most heroic castaways will battle against 13 of the most villainous castaways for the title of Sole Survivor. The Hikari tribe represented the heroes and the Kyoaku tribe represented the villains.
  • One World: All players were able to freely communicate with each other, regardless of tribal lines.
  • Simplified Tie-Breaker: Similar to Survivor: Game Changers, there would be no revote. However, there would be no open discussion; should a vote tie, the tribal council immediately goes to rocks.
  • Duels of Duality: Every other round, one member from each tribe would be selected to compete head to head. Which ever player wins the challenge wins immunity for their entire tribe.
  • Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty: On Day 17, the remaining 18 castaways were shuffled based off their defining attributes given to them by their fellow castaways during the Touchy Subjects challenge. The Okazaki tribe were the "Brains", the Nagoya tribe were the "Brawns", and Hakodate was the "Beauty" tribe.
  • Fukushū Idol: This idol is played at the same time as hidden immunity idols. The player of this idol is able to over ride one vote once the votes have been cast. Steffen played this idol at the Final 14 tribal council, over riding Crow's vote for Drew and voting for Ashton, resulting in his elimination from the game.
