Survivor Season 40 Dream Tribe Game

Enter the Inside Survivor Dream Tribe Game to earn points and win prizes.

The Inside Survivor Dream Tribe Game is back… a little earlier than usual!

Due to season 40 featuring returning players, and the high likelihood of spoilers leaking before the show airs, we’re opening the Dream Tribe entries now while filming is still underway.

As always, readers select a team of four castaways who they think will perform well on season 40. Each participant then earns points throughout the season based on how the four castaways in their Dream Tribe perform. At the end of the season, the top three points getters win Survivor Buffs courtesy of PlanetGearCompany!

Below is a recap of the rules and prizes. Once you’ve gone over the requirements, get selecting your tribe! Good luck!


  • One entry per person.
  • Each person must select a Dream Tribe consisting of four different castaways. If you select the same castaway twice or more your entry will be disqualified.
  • You will gain points based on the performance and actions of your chosen four castaways throughout the season.
  • You cannot change your Dream Tribe once selected.
  • Must include full name and email address on entry. This is only so we can contact prize winners. You will not be contacted for any other reason.

  1. I have a question: does the player get points for every time that happens, for the last five things? for example, does a player get 10 pts every time they survive a TC, and/or every time they find an idol?

  2. I can’t for the life of me remember who I picked all those months ago! Is there a way I can find out?

    Edit: …never mind. Just saw the spreadsheet will be posted after the premire.
