"Survivor" fans are preparing for the start of Season 24. After so many seasons there isn't much that can happen to shock the fans or the contestants. With over 400 contestants to have played the game, in many different locations, and over nearly 12 years, there isn't much that fans haven't seen. While the scenario for "Survivor: One World" isn't exactly new, it is unique, and will pose some challenges for the castaways. These are some ways the Season 24 cast will be challenged on "Survivor: One World."
Tribes Living Together
On a normal season of "Survivor," the 18 contestants are divided into two tribes and sent to live in separate camps. The two tribes only live together when the individual stage of the game begins, and the tribes merge . On "Survivor: One World" that is not the case. The two tribes will be forced to live together on one island and in one camp. This is going to have a huge impact on the castaways and their social games. Both tribes will be able to see the inner workings and struggles of the other tribe. This will make it easier for them gain alliance members from the other group, and as fans know, "Survivor" is a numbers game. If you don't have the majority you're definitely in trouble.
In a game that limits everything from food to comfort items, a chance to get any sort of creature comfort can boost the morale of the castaways. Usually after a reward challenge, the losing tribe watches as the winners march off into the distance with their bounty, but this season will be different. The tribes will be sharing a camp, so the losing tribe will be able to see the winning tribe enjoying their spoils. The twist is that each tribe can decide whether they want to share their resources with the other tribe. This little twist could mean huge problems for the tribes. If one tribe decides to share something and the other tribe doesn't return the favor, fans can expect to see major drama.
Men Vs. Women
Fans have seen various versions of men vs. women on "Survivor" throughout the years. Some castaways have even formed such alliances on their own. This time, however, with the tribes living on one island while competing against each other, things could be more difficult. This means it will be more difficult for one sex to use the others' attraction to gain ground on the other tribe. Fans have seen it many times; women using their feminine wiles to gain the trust and hearts of the guys, and the guys flexing their physical and mental muscles on the unsuspecting hearts of the ladies. If a man or woman does snag the attention from someone from the other tribe, it will be a game changer for sure.
"Survivor: One World" premieres on CBS on February 15. Tune in to learn what other twists host Jeff Probst has in store for the castaways.
