Survivor 1x01 (Israel)

Tonight, the first episode of the first season of the local version of Survivor was aired. It is taking place on an island in the Dominican Republic. Overall, it is very similar to the American version, including a host who is doing his best to look and sound like Jeff Probst (right down to the necklace). There are a few differences though:

  • 52 days, instead of the 30 something in the original
  • 20 survivors
  • Two episodes per week (only the second episode has the vote)
  • The loosing tribe have an individual challenge, and the winner gets a double vote at the tribal council
  • It looks like the person voted off is not yet leaving the show, but rather going to a different island. The purpose is not yet clear

Looking forward to seeing the next episode! And it comes at a good time, when the 15th season of the original is coming to its end tomorrow.
