Sea­son 29 SABC3 (*193) 19:30 Re­al­ity

Seen one sea­son, seen ’em all, right? Not with re­al­ity su­per­show Sur­vivor (2000-cur­rent) – thanks to twists, turns and sur­prises around ev­ery cor­ner, no sea­son is the same. In fact, the only con­stant over the years (Sur­vivor is cur­rently in sea­son 34 in the US) has been host Jeff Probst. So what don’t you know about sea­son 29, set in the Nicaraguan mu­nic­i­pal­ity of San Juan Del Sur?

1 Reed Kelly taught the cast­aways to brush their teeth with ash from the camp­fires and he claims, “It’s made my teeth whiter than any den­tal prod­ucts!”

2 Two of this sea­son’s con­tes­tants are dumped out the show with the Im­mu­nity Idol still in their pos­ses­sion!

3 The ac­tual ti­tle of this sea­son is Sur­vivor: Blood vs Wa­ter 2 but CBS, the net­work that owns the show, didn’t want fans to get con­fused with the first Blood vs Wa­ter (sea­son 27), so they called it Sur­vivor: San Juan Del Sur in­stead.

4 Ja­clyn Schultz and her boyfriend Jon Misch were al­most on re­al­ity show The Amaz­ing Race (2001-cur­rent) in­stead. “I thought they’d be bor­ing and wouldn’t of­fer any­thing,” says Jeff. “But [CBS pres­i­dent] Les Moonves wanted them and he was right!”

5 Jeff says that “the bosses weren’t too im­pressed” when some of the cast­aways tried to skip a chal­lenge and crown a win­ner with­out com­pet­ing. “That’s just a lit­tle too lazy, you know?” laughs the 55-year-old host.

6 Natalie and Nadiya Anderson are the first twins to be on the show. They were also on sea­sons 21 and 24 of The Amaz­ing Race, in 2012 and 2014. font on the tribes’ ban­danas is 7 called Voodoo House be­cause Nicaragua has a his­tory with dark magic.
