For the last 10 years Survivor has travelled to the farthest corners of the planet and subjected over 300 contestants to the harshest environments. As the next decade of Survivor begins this new group of strangers will compete in Survivor: Nicaragua.
The series begins with the castaways marooned in a land of smouldering volcanoes, exotic wildlife and impenetrable terrain. They will be forced to work together to adapt to their new surroundings, yet compete against each other to the stay in the game or be voted out. In the end, only one will remain to claim the million-dollar prize and the title of Sole Survivor.
The 20 castaways will be divided into two tribes of 10, comprised of older and younger competitors.
The Espada Tribe, made up of over-40s, includes a dog trainer, a fireman, a swimming coach and a real estate executive. They must prove they have the life experience and knowledge to ultimately help them outwit and outlast their younger competitors.
The La Flor Tribe, made up of under-30s, includes a physical education teacher, a club promoter and a medical student. They will have to use their youth and vitality to outplay and outlast their elders.
Will the life experience of the Espada Tribe or the physical performance of the La Flor Tribe provide the winning edge? Anything is possible in the enthralling new game of Survivor.
