Survivor: Canaima is the sixteenth season of BENLINUS' Survivor series. Sixteen strangers will compete against each other whilst battling the elements. If they can learn to outwit, outplay, and outlast the rest, they will be given the title of sole survivor! The series premiered November 28, 2018, and ended with a live reunion on December 13, 2018.

The winner of the season was Ryan, defeating Lorenzo in a 4-3 vote for the title of Sole Survivor. Christian was named the "Player Of The Season".

Production

The season location of Canaima National Park, Venezuela was decided as being a future location in January, 2016 after the host re-watched the opening scene of the 2000 Disney movie Dinosaur, regarding it as a location that would be suitable to host a season of Survivor.

The season featured sixteen brand new players, divided into two tribes of eight (the classic Survivor format that had not been used since Belize). Both tribes were named after features of Canaima National Park, with Caroní (wearing blue) being named after the Caroní River, and the Kukenán tribe (wearing brown) being named after one of the most famous tepuis. On Day 19, the tribes merged into the Auyán tribe, wearing green.

It was decided the day before the season began that there would be no tribe swaps or major twists in the game other than the hidden immunity idol, as the host wanted a more back to basics feel. The host did consider using a Survivor: Tocantins style exile island twist, but ultimately scrapped the idea.

Twists

  • Hidden Immunity Idol: Each camp has a hidden immunity idol hidden, with a single idol also hidden at the merged camp.
  • Kidnapping: On day 11, the Caroní tribe was able to take immunity by default after only Jabbar was present for Kukenán, thus making their victory almost inevitable. However, the condition came with the additional condition that they must kidnap Jabbar from tribal council, thus rendering him ineligible to vote and also unable to be voted out. The tribe accepted the offer, ultimately leading to Jabbar passing over his idol to Braden.
