Back in May, Inside Survivor revealed the full cast of returning champions for the highly-anticipated fortieth season of Survivor. Since then, the season has been filmed, the winners have done battle, and we’ve revealed a torrent of twists from the season, including the increased prize fund and the dreaded return of Edge of Extinction.

Now, finally, we can reveal what many people have been waiting for, the tribe divisions! The title, first posted by Instagram user Chris Scotts, is Winners at War. The tribe divisions can be viewed below:


The blue tribe consists of Amber Mariano, Kim Spradlin-Wolfe, Sandra Diaz-Twine, Sarah Lacina, Sophie Clarke, Nick Wilson, Tony Vlachos, Tyson Apostol, Wendell Holland, and Yul Kwon.

This marks the second time Sandra and Tony have started on the same tribe, having previously been on the Mana tribe in Game Changers. Tony and Sarah also started together on the Brawn tribe in Cagayan. Sandra also started on the Villains tribe with Tyson in Heroes vs. Villains and played with Sarah on the swapped Nuku tribe in Game Changers.


The red tribe consists of Adam Klein, Ben Driebergen, Ethan Zohn, Jeremy Collins, Rob Mariano, Danni Boatwright, Denise Stapley, Michele Fitzgerald, Natalie Anderson, and Parvati Shallow.

This is the second time Rob and Parvati have started on the same tribe, having previously been part of the Villains tribe in Heroes vs. Villains. Jeremy and Natalie also started on the Hunahpu tribe together in San Juan Del Sur.

DISCLAIMER: It’s possible the tribe colors could be the wrong way around.

    The f happened to Parvati?

    • Jeff Palmer

      LOL from hottie to has-been… and back?

    • CatskillSurvivor

      Looks like she colored her hair.

    • Felix Chéruiyot

      She would have won twice

      • yeltra

        “Should” have won.

  • Charlie Brown

    What’s wrong nobody else applying to play, piss on this rehash of a bunch of aholes, not all but a lot of aholes. Getting as to where i’ve had enough

  • John Komaroff

    Interesting. Still worried with Edge of Extinction involved. But you never know. This season started filming when season 38 ended. So they saw a lot of the negative reactions it got. I don’t think it was a bad twist, but it does have to get adjusted. Maybe that’s what they did. I’m not gonna judge till this season plays out. We could still end up with very good one. End it’s cool to see the best winners ever battling it out.

      Not sure about, “best winners”. More like, the winners that would come back, to play again.

    #teamblue – all the way. I hope they don’t have to go to tribal much,

    Returning Champions? How about Fricken Retreads? Enough with previous players / 2nd or 4th chance return players, move on, get some young blood /new blood on there. And nowit looks like they get to bring a few suitcase’s along with them, get back to the nitty gritty, make them survive, hence the name “Survivor”.

      said no one ever

  • Vinicius

    Praying for a Michele, Natalie, Danni, Parvati and Jeremy alliance

  • Ogden Watanabe

    Any predictions? I think on the blue tribe Amber and Kim will be a tight duo. I think Tyson Wendell and Nick will bond.

    On the red tribe I don’t think Rob and Parvati will align. I think Ben Jeremy and Rob are the three alpha guys on the tribe so they’ll form an alliance. I think Denise can align with just about anyone even though she’s older. I don’t think Danni will be that relatable with the rest of her tribe.

  • The article mentions that.

    The edge of extinction twist is awful and will take this season down, just like 38.
