Inside Survivor reveal the theme and title for the next year’s all-returnee season of Survivor.
Filming for Survivor Season 34 is currently underway in Fiji, where twenty former players are battling it out once again for the title of Sole Survivor and the million dollar prize. Ever since Inside Survivor revealed the cast last month, speculation has been rife in regards to what the theme is. Fans have theorized everything, from a Rivals season to Heroes vs. Villains 2 to simply a generic All-Stars. Now that speculation can be put to bed.
Inside Survivor has learned that the theme and title for Survivor Season 34 will be – Survivor: Game Changers – The Mamanuca Islands. The theme is said to be based around players that “changed the game” in some shape or form in their previous season(s). Although applying this concept to everyone on the cast is sure to require a lot of spin on the part of the producers.
On paper, it’s easy to see how players such as Cirie Fields and Tony Vlachos could be described as “game changers,” given their out-of-the-box strategies that influenced the game. Likewise, players such as Sandra Diaz-Twine, the only two-time winner, and J.T. Thomas, the first “perfect game” winner, could also fit the theme. Ciera Eastin and Malcolm Freberg are likely to be promoted as game changers for their “big moves” with rocks and idols, respectively.
Where it becomes a lot stickier is when you look at players like Brad Culpepper, Hali Ford, and Sierra Dawn-Thomas. Whether you’re happy with their inclusion in the cast or not, you’d be hard-pressed to find a reason to describe any of them, and others in this cast, as “game changers.” Inside Survivor previously revealed that production changed the originally planned theme for the season during the casting process.
Much like previous returnee seasons, All-Stars and Second Chance, the tribe divisions will be decided solely by production.
The Mamanuca Islands – the group of islands in Fiji where filming is taking place – will be the season’s secondary title. Much like with previous seasons: Survivor: Vanuatu – Islands of Fire and Survivor: Gabon – Earth’s Last Eden.
