Survivor Season 37 Theme And Title Revealed


A new battle is set to take place on the next season of Survivor.

Inside Survivor can confirm that Survivor is about to get biblical on our asses as the title and theme for season 37 is David vs. Goliath.

The new theme was first revealed by user anthonyd46 in a Reddit post, which stated that 20 players would be divided into two tribes based on the famous biblical underdog story. The post described the David tribe as “common people,” and the Goliath group as “people on top of their respective fields like ceos surgeons, etc.”

Inside Survivor has since verified this information with multiple sources. The “Goliaths” are defined as those who have attained great power or achieved huge success, whether in their careers or personal lives. The “Davids” are said to be a tribe of underdogs, people that are underestimated or undervalued. It’s not necessarily about physical strength.

Season 37 recently wrapped up filming in Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands and is scheduled to air this fall on CBS. You can view the rumored cast here.

Stay tuned to Inside Survivor for more updates in the coming weeks.

    Ugh, enough of the arbitrary divisions. That isn’t an interesting long term theme: like does anyone really remember BvBvB as a fascinating additional element, or HvHvH because of the contrast between the groups. Ghost Island may not have been as effective as I hoped, but at least it is still a present theme in the game at the end point.

    Each season has a worse theme

    You know, I don’t mind most Survivor themes. I really think HvV, BvW, and BBB are all fantastic, and FvF would be a great concept if vets didn’t have an advantage over new players.

    Dear gods, though, I’m sick of division based on employment. Worlds Apart, HHH, and now this have all divided tribes by their jobs. Like, employment status isn’t something I want to see overdone on season after season. Honestly, just give me another BBB season, or a gender/age division, or anything besides dividing them up by their careers AGAIN.

    ok it seems interesting. when the 5 members of the missing deals went up.
    season 38 will also be completely newbies?

  • Andy Spanjer

    Awesome! I hope they go crazy with the art direction and give it all a Biblical theme! That would be epic!

    Also, this is basically the same as AUS: Champions v Contenders right?

  • Simon Paterson

    This sounds very similar to the Australian “Champions vs Contendors”

    I hate it already. A season that starts with the premise that some people are “better” than others sounds awful.

    Very cool theme! I’m into it. I just hope the females can be as strong as the males. We all know they tend to cast weaker females as opposed to males, which is lame. We need more dominant women!
