Top 10 Survivor Twists

The Top Ten

1 Immunity Idol - Guatemala

The biggest Survivor game changer of all time, has impact on every season since Guatemala

It's not even a strategic element. It is just some special tool that advances you further

So good, it never left the game

it was an amazing twist

2 Purple Rock - Marquesas

Totally changed the whole game and took out Pascal, who had no votes against him the whole game - alexcousins

3 White Rock - Blood vs Water

Part of a crazy tribal council that also took our Katie, who also had been a quiet player most of the game - alexcousins

Same thing as the Purple Rock... - Turkeyasylum

4 Outcasts - Pearl Islands

Even though I wouldn't do this Twist again, at least you have to strategize to get back in the game and admittedly the people that came back did make Pearl Islands a great second half.

While many people hate this because it was unfair, it was exciting to watch - alexcousins

It's one of my favorites, I liked how the players got a second chance. - Turkeyasylum

This game and all CBS competition reality shows should be once you are out you are out

5 Mutiny - Thailand/Cook Islands

Loved it the way Yul and Ozzy took their underdog alliance all the way to final 4 and the mutineers got sent home. Just proves that Yul is incredible and should play again, he was damn straight one of the best survivor players of all time

This was a great twist that lead to the best survivor comeback with the aitu 4 taking all 8 raro members out in a row

Changed the whole game in Cook Island by giving Raro a 8-4 numbers advantage over Auki - alexcousins

6 Blood vs Water - Blood vs Water/ San Juan del Sur

Led to an emotional season the first time - alexcousins

7 Tribe Switch - Africa+

Tribe switches are one of the best twists in the show. Ever. The tribe switches can knock out strong players and can also allow a weak player to get further into the game. Tribe switches also make Pagonging less likely. - Turkeyasylum

While minor, this can impact a person's status at camp big time - alexcousins

8 Exile Island - Exile Island-Tocantins, San Juan del Sur

Impacted almost all the seasons it was a part of - alexcousins

9 Redemption Island - Redemption Island/South Pacific/ Blood vs Water

The way I see survivor is that if you get voted out you are out for good. There should not be some island for second chances that just ruined the entire format of the game

I liked redemption island because it gave everyone a 2nd chance and if they redeem by beating a lot of people they are a threat so its cool to see what will happen.

I liked the Outcasts twist, but Redemption Island got annoying because there were no reward challenges in the seasons it was in. - Turkeyasylum

Let eliminated contestants get a chance to come back into the game through duals, affected the game big time especially in B v W - alexcousins

10 Fake Merge - Thailand

Thailand version was epic, one from Fiji sucked

Fun for everyone except Shii Ann. - Turkeyasylum

Cause of Shii-Ann's elimination - alexcousins

The Contenders

11 Idol Nullifier - Survivor Australia
12 One World - Survivor One World

This twist was supposed one of the biggest opportunities ever, you could make an alliances with the other tribe that could possibly give you tons of power come the merge. But, no the two tribes which was a men. Vs. Women tribal division, just argued and bargained with each other. LAME

13 Edge of Extinction - Edge of Extinction

This twist allowed for the third boot to win the game
That’s why it’s at the bottom

14 Fans Vs. Favorites - Micronesia
15 6 Players left and 5 Idols Played! - Season 34: Game Changers
16 Legacy Advantage - Millennials vs Gen X/Game Changers/Ghost Island
17 Old vs. Young - Survivor Nicaragua/Millennials vs. Gen X
