When Survivor 2015 starts later this month with Season 30′s “Worlds Apart” theme the 18 new castaways will be competing to win Immunity and avoid Tribal Council, though a first look at this season’s Idol might have them hoping to avoid both.
At first I was a little taken back by the new Immunity Idol up for grabs each week on Survivor this year, but the more I look at it the more I like it. Made of metal parts, wood scraps, and nightmares from your childhood. The small figurine offers up his sharp teeth and clawed feet along with his metal shield and rusty spear. It’s enough to make you want to take your chances with Tribal Council, but then again that might not be much better.
Hobo Alley is the theme of the “fire is your life on Survivor” torch this time around. The bamboo staff is adorned with a tin can and torn rags that’ll have you longing for your home under the bridge which would probably be nicer than the makeshift tent they’ll be constructing on the beaches of Nicaragua on Survivor 2015.
All kidding aside, I do like the creativity and atypical designs that went in to the Worlds Apart gear this season. They’re certainly different from what we’ve seen in the past and when you’re coming up on thirty seasons of the show, they can’t be easy.

Brad Culpepper appeared on Survivor 2013 (Season 27) as part of the Blood Vs Water twist with his wife, Monica, following her time on One World. Now the former NFL player and Survivor castaway is facing a new Tribal Council of sorts.
According to ABC News, Brad Culpepper is being sued by an insurance company who paid him $175,000 in worker’s comp related to injuries sustain that supposedly made it difficult for him to get in and out of the bathtub. Imagine their confusion to see him leaping in and out of the water heaving large crates and competing in the weekly challenges.
While the insurance company is saying he “willfully and deceptively provided false information” Brad contends that he was and remains in rough shape. The claim to insurance had him set at 89% disabled, which Brad contends is a number and rating that he doesn’t understand during his interview with ABC.
If you still weren’t convinced, then you’re in luck because Brad takes off his shirt and flexes his torn bicep as supportive proof of his condition. Well I’m convinced.
As for Monica Culpepper, she says she regrets getting him on the show due to all the fallout their now facing. “I 100 percent wish I had never asked him to be on the show. For all that he’s going through right now and being this insurance company’s target, is not worth it.”
The new season’s Survivor theme features the White Collar vs Blue Collar vs No Collar bringing back the 3-way power struggle that we recently saw work with great success last year. It’ll be very interesting to see if we can find a more compelling group of castaways over last season’s turn out.
Expecting roughly a twelve week run with this Survivor schedule and a late February start date for Survivor 2015 will put us right toward the middle of May for things to wrap up and a new Sole Survivor to be crowned. Last season Survivor went head to head with the American Idol finale and did quite well so they may not have any concerns about trying that again this year.
Survivor 2015 cast has been revealed and now CBS is sharing more on location photos from Nicaragua where both season 30 & 29 were filmed.
The location for Survivor Worlds Apart is gorgeous, of course, and we’re looking forward to seeing the all-new castaways hit the beach running in their bid to become the Sole Survivor and walk away with the million-dollar prize.
On top of the beautiful scenery we’re also getting a look at the new Tribal Council where someone will be eliminated each week. This one looks like something we might find at Disney World, but I guess they’re all a bit stylized that way. Can’t wait to see what takes place there.

The Survivor 2015 cast of Worlds Apart, Survivor’s 30th season on CBS, has been revealed along with the three tribes used to make up the class warfare Survivor theme of White Collar vs Blue Collar vs No Collar.
18 castaways split across the three tribes, each representing a different class of players based on socioeconomic divides this year on Survivor. The three tribes are Nargarote (No Collar), Escameca (Blue Collar), and Masaya (White Collar).
Here are the breakouts of each of those tribes with their six members:
