Sixteen or more castaways are split between two or more "Tribes", are taken to a remote isolated location and are forced to live off the land with meager supplies for roughly 39 days. Frequent physical challenges are used to pit the tribes against each other for Rewards, such as food or luxuries, or for "Immunity", forcing the other tribe to attend "Tribal Council", where they more
...must vote off one of their players. Once about half the players are remaining, the tribes are merged into a single tribe, and competitions are on an individual basis; winning Immunity prevents that player from being voted out, while several that are voted out at this stage form the game's "Jury". Once down to two or three people, a Final Tribal Council is held where the remaining players plead their case to the jury members. The jury then votes for which player should be considered the "Sole Survivor" and win the $1 million prize. Survivor has introduced numerous modifications, or "twists", on the core rules in order to keep the players on their toes and to prevent players from relying on strategies that succeeded in prior seasons. These changes have included tribal switches, seasons starting with more than two tribes, the ability to exile a player from a tribe for a short time, Hidden Immunity Idols that players can use to save themselves at Tribal Council and a chance to return to regular gameplay after elimination through "Redemption Island".

Chernobyl Is a Harrowing and Worthy Look at One of the World's Worst Man-Made Disasters

After you're over whatever surprises Game of Thrones offers you on Sunday and you've caught up on Veep and Barry, return to HBO for something a little more unpleasant. A miniseries about the worst nuclear disaster in human history isn't something you watch for enjoyment, even if you're keen on that kind of horror. No, Chernobyl is something you watch because everybody needs to know what happens when mistakes are made for selfish reasons, and lies are maintained to save face. more

'Survivor: Ghost Island': Who Was Voted Off in 'It's Like the Perfect Crime'?

Last week on Survivor: Ghost Island, Michael earned the most number of votes but because he used his hidden Immunity Idol, he was able to save himself. On the other hand, Libby, who had four votes, was voted off in 9th place--joining Chris as the second member of the jury. Heading into this week's Tribal Council, it's easy to assume that Michael will once again be the target. But that might not be the case in "It's Like the Perfect Crime."  For this week's Reward Challenge, the 11 remaining players are divided into two team... more

Did Angela Just Emerge as the Dark Horse of 'Survivor: Ghost Island'?

The merge episode of Survivor: Ghost Island didn't play out in the usual way. The merge usually is about highlighting the biggest players of the season and showing off the real threats starting to emerge. Instead the merge was all about the final showdown between Domenick and Chris, which Chris lost. Yet with Chris out of the way, Survivor: Ghost Island was able to open up in the second post-merge episode. Lavita finally felt like a merged tribe and the season gave way to a surprising new power player, Angela. The more
