Survivor: Game Changers, the show's 34th season, is set to premiere tonight on CBS, and here's how you can watch it both on television and online.
It may be 2017 but Survivor is still one of the top-rated shows on television, with a dedicated and passionate fanbase. For this season, Survivor has brought back 20 former players looking for another shot at $1 million and in a few cases, and extra $1 million. This year's cast includes Survivor winners Tony Vlachos and J.T. Thomas and the series only two-time winner Sandra Diaz-Twine, in addition to legends like Ozzy Lusth, Cirie Fields and Malcolm Freberg.
Newer favorites competing among this cast include Aubry Bracco, Tai Trang, Michaela Bradshaw, Zeke Smith and Ciera Eastin. Jeff Varner, Caleb Reynolds, Debbie Wanner, Sarah Lacina, Sierra Dawn Thomas, Hali Ford, Troyzan Robertson, Andrea Boehlke and Brad Culpepper round out the cast.
This season of Survivor features a new twist with voting. If there is a tie at Tribal Council there is no opportunity to re-vote. The other tribe members who didn't receive votes would have to then convene and unanimously agree on a person to eliminate. If they don't reach an agreement, the castaways who received votes are safe (as well as anyone with Immunity) and the rest of the tribe would have to draw rocks, with the one person who draws the wrong rock going home. This means that all kinds of voting strategies will have to be reworked or thrown out the window completely.
Survivor: Game Changers premieres tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. It's a two-hour premiere this time around, which means double the fun and presumably two Tribal Councils.
