Twists/Changes

  • Four Tribes - For the first time, the castaways are divided into four tribes of four members each.
  • Battle of the Ages - The castaways are divided into tribes dependent upon their age at the time of filming. Shams tribe members were 12-15 years old, Yanbue tribe members were 16-18 years old, Hariq tribe members were 18-20 years old, and Hikma tribe members were 20-24 years old.
  • Hidden Immunity Idols - Their purpose is to nullify all votes cast against the holder when he or she chooses to play it. There were two hidden immunity idols hidden for each shared campground for players to find before the merge.
    • Shared Campgrounds - Each starting tribe has their own campgrounds while also sharing a central area with one other tribe. Shams and Yanbue shared one central area while Hariq and Hikma shared the other. This format was dropped at the tribe switch when Yanbue and Hariq were disbanded.
  • Unexpected Start - On Day 1, the castaways were marooned altogether with the instruction of talking to each other in groups no bigger than 3, prior to the official tribes reveal on Day 2.
  • The Oasis - Formally introduced on Day 8, various opportunities would be given to players to visit the Oasis. Every 2-3 rounds a different advantage would be hidden, leaving it up to players how they would spend their time at the Oasis.
  • Tribe Switch - On Day 8, the Yanbue and Hariq tribes disbanded. Two tribe captains would be randomly selected, and a schoolyard pick would determine the tribes.
