Survivor 2013 premiere of Blood vs Water arrives next week on Wednesday, September 18th at 8PM ET/PT for a 90-minute season debut. The premiere event will be followed by Big Brother 15’s own season finale and between the two there should be enough twists and turns to make your head spin.
Survivor will be bringing back a stack of twists, some new and some old for season 27. Here’s a rundown of what to expect next week with some new things plus new twists on old twists.
The season usually lasts for 39 days of gameplay, but this year it’ll be 39.5 days. Ooh. Ahh. Yes, that extra half day will start castaways out the night before in pairs as they’ll prepare for the game expecting to play together. That hope will come crashing down the next morning when Jeff reveals each couple will be split in to vets vs newbies.
Once castaways find out they’ll be playing against their loved ones each tribe will immediately vote out one person. They won’t be out of the game just yet though. Instead they’ll head off to the return of Redemption Island. Blah. Yeah, that’s back.
The paired castaway of the voted-off castaway will have the choice to swap places with them and compete on their behalf at Redemption Island. At each arena battle the couples will have the choice to swap out with them. The swapped castaway would go back to the opposite tribe (a newbie would go to the vet’s tribe and vice versa).
Redemption Island gets an added twist. There will be three players competing in each battle. The person who finishes last is out, but the player who gets first will receive a clue to an immunity idol to share with any one castaway from either tribe of their choosing.
Wow. That’s going to be a lot to keep track of this season on Survivor. Are there too many twists for Blood vs Water or do you think this will keep things exciting?
Survivor 2013 premieres Wednesday, September 18th at 8/7c on CBS.
