Great cast; this season has it all; the battle of the sexes, battle between generations, cunning strategists causing the the game to twist and turn, players flipping back ad forth between alliances and lots of laughter in between.

The interviews were funny, the challenges very interesting and finally beautiful men and women to watch on T.V..

This season is good because had elements how game used been played and elements of how game played now. So memorable cast like Christy Rob Heidi Denna Jenna.

What?! Amazon is my second favorite season of the show because this was the first season where you genuinely never knew what was going to happen. How could it be behind All Stars, South Pacific and Caramoan?

All of the seasons up until all star are amazing. After that, the show became just about annoying people strategizing to get people off and had nothing to do with "surviving".

23 Koh Rong

Tai is easily the best SURVIVOR this season. By survivor I mean he is easily the most adaptable to the Koh Ring environment. This season is filled with the most medical instances I've seen! Caleb getting sent by medical early was a huge letdown but I bet he'll be back in another season. This season already has some nice blindsides and the cast is great.

This season will be much higher after all the decency bias. I am LOVING the suspensefulness so far! Best cast ever!

Jason and Scot are way worse than Russell, at least he kept it secret the pair is only isolating themselves.

I don't know about u but I liked that michelle won, I was backing her up (since the switch when I realised she was playing strategically by keeping her options open). With such an intense and brutal variety of players (in my eyes) a great winner to defeat aubry and tai (and my second favourite cydney). Plus I loved the super idol twist, the vote off a jury member twist, great location, nail-biting challenges and b v b v b theme. So many awesome things definitely my favourite season!

This is by far one of the best seasons. It has a unique cast, a beautiful landmark, an array of crazy moments, and introduced the hidden immunity idol. I wish they used that format of playing it instead of now. - naFrovivuS

Other than maybe Micronesia, this season had the most good strategists.

I want to say that danni, steph, rafe, cindy, bj was the best there

I think only the truest of fans have seen this season. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

I liked or tolerated nearly all the cast. One of the better recent Survivors. - Turkeyasylum

The winter is my favorite person to ever be on survivor. Although it didn't have a theme like heroes vs villains it was one of my all-time favorite seasons.

Naonka horrible person! Holly & sash waste of space. The Italian mob guy that couldn't do any challenges. Marty so full of himself. We did get Jane!

Super underrated. Great season.

This is a very good season, At least watch it before thinking it's a bad season, look at the cast they had they had some bad casting like missy and Baylor but had good players such as Natalie, Keith, Kelly Wentworth, she wouldn't be in second chance if jot for San Juan dlna sur

The season that actually made me go and watch all past seasons. Loved it

A lot of interesting and entertaining contestants. Don't understand why it's not higher. - naFrovivuS

27 Fiji

Yau's greatness alone propels Fiji onto the list. Combining with the amazing location, the memorable events within the season put it near the top. If it wasn't for the number of recruits Fiji would have a stronger case at #1. - Savastano20

This is a really ugly season, it has bullying, broken friendships, and awful editing.

Awful season, horrible cast (dreamz, rocky) and terrible boot order.

This season was heavily panned by fans and Jeff Probst alike, mainly for its lack of likable contestants (with exceptions such as Earl, Michelle, and Yau-Man), all but one contestant being recruited, one player quitting before the game even started, and its poor execution of twists.

The last episode killed it for me, all that drama is what survivor thrives on. Plus it was in Kenya, my country.

30 Game Changers

You people are absolutely blinded by the fact that this season practically ruined how Survivor is supposed to be played. The season was overfilled with bad players that did nothing to evolve the game. It was so focused on making strategic moves instead of surviving the elements the producers had to throw in way too many twists and advantages just to spice things up more. But the theme was completely horrific and ruined the legacies of many great players. And the advantages were EVEN WORSE. The Legacy Advantage was brought back despite it being an AWFUL advantage. Debbie going to exile which was a SHIP?! And she gets advice from COCHRAN, and what now? An Advantage Choice? Oh, and the Vote Steal. To add, they put too many idols and made the game overpowered. In conclusion, WORST SEASON EVER. If Season 35 doesn't bring back the purpose of Survivor, I don't know what will. - naFrovivuS

This season has a ridiculous overfill of twists, is poor in casting, and just fails to even shock anyone with the blindsides. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

If you weren't shocked by the Michaela blindside you aren't a living person. Also surprised at Brad's and Cirie's success.

Holy cow this season is fantastic! I mean, it's only 30 rn, but I expect it to rise, blindsides, twists, EVERYTHING YOU LOVE ABOUT SURVIVOR (And Cirie! Cirie was robbed ;-

The twists (especially the Legacy Advantage) are what made this season TERRIBLE! - naFrovivuS

32 Redemption Island

This season had too many weak players who did nothing, the Redemption Island twist completely fell flat, and it was way too predictable. Hands down the worst season ever.

They chose awful players (Phillip) on purpose so Rob could get an easy win. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

Awful season with an unlikable cast, horrible twist, boring location and the most predictable winner of all time

Easily one of the worst, but not as terrible in casting as GAME CHANGERS. - naFrovivuS

33 Worlds Apart

Worlds Apart was such a bad season, Jeff didn't even bother saying the title of it. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

The way this season is going (4/7/15) it's AWFUL! I mean for starters this was supposed to be an all-star season. The excuse, "it's only season 30"! And so shouldn't have been first out. She should've at least made it to the jury. The merge comes, they pull a Fiji on us and "kill" the camp (if you know what I mean). And Carolyn, no offense but she should've been out. The merge tribe name I mean come on no offense but merica, Rly, personally I just kinda HATE this season, too many wrong moves being made!

Top 20... Definitely not last

Bad cast, predictable winner, not really that fun. - naFrovivuS

34 One World

Guys with no testosterone! Oh, lets just go along with Colton and then, let's just go along with whatever the girls say. And then the leader of the girls just straight up picking all the girls off one by one.

Definitely highs and lows. The tribal council were Bobby left was especially interesting, but unfair. However, got boring after the merge and it was an obvious winner, but she really deserved it

Was the worst of the worst bar none! Super selfish sissy made me want to punch the screen.

A very bland season. Kim got an easy win. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

35 Thailand

Thailand gets a lot of flak for a lot of reasons - and to be fair, it's far from the most entertaining season. The lack of truly memorable characters and the thoroughly predictable post-merge phase definitely take their toll on the entertainment value derived from sitting through to the end. Even so, it still retains a number of redeeming qualities that make it worthwhile for Survivor fans to at least check it out. The schism between Ted and Ghandia might have been uncomfortable on a number of levels, but it was entertaining to watch; seeing Ghandia get voted out the following episode was pretty satisfying, given the accusations that she had been throwing around. Robb and Shi Ann had an entertaining rivalry. There were plenty of solid one-liners to go around. The fake merge was a creative twist, and the final immunity challenge easily ranks among the best in the series.

However, what makes this season truly memorable is its winner. It may have been fourteen years ago now, but ...more

Unlike Russell (awful social game and crappy gameplay) and Rob (was only kept around because anyone except for his goats could beat him), Brian was legitimately like watching an evil genius in action. His fellow castaways were treated as minions, and he was still able to secure 4 votes before ftc despite his embarrassingly emotionless and bad jury answers. But he was also entertaining.

This season wasn't all that bad. Great winner, and had a lot of funny moments like Shii Ann being openly disgusted by her tribe, Robb in general, and the pet cemetary. Not in my top ten though

A really underrated season, had a great villain (Brian) three memorable players (Shii Ann, Ghandia and Robb) a lot of good moments but of course people decide to judge it because Jeff Probst didn't like it.
