“Come on in guys” because two iconic seasons of the long-running CBS game show Survivor are now streaming on Netflix!
Please be warned as this article will contain various spoilers for multiple seasons of the show so if you wish to not be spoiled you have officially been warned.
The two seasons that are now available on Netflix are seasons 20 and 28; Heroes vs Villain and Cagayan. Both seasons are known for their iconic players and highly strategic gameplay.
A Brief Summary of Survivor Heroes vs. Villains
Survivor Heroes vs Villains was the 20th season of the show and saw 20 former castaways return for another chance to win the $1-million prize.
The castaways were split into two tribes based on their gameplay in their past season(s), the Heroes and the Villains. Most of the action however as you could imagine came from the villains tribe with notorious Survivor villain Russell Hantz leading that alliance.
Hantz alongside Parvati Shallow and their villains alliance ran the show until the last remaining hero Colby Donaldson was voted off of the show leaving the four remaining villains left.
In the end, Hantz and Shallow’s behavior in the game lost the respect of the jury and Sandra Diaz-Twine was awarded the $1-million for the second time making her the first two-time winner.
A Brief Summary of Survivor Cagayan
Survivor Cagayan is the other season that been recently added to Netflix and it too is one of the more popular seasons among fans of the show.
The season is notable for its cast of iconic characters such as Sarah Lacina, Spencer Bledsoe, “Chaos” Kass McQuillen, Woo Hwang, and Tony Vlachos who went on to win the season in quite the unorthodox fashion.
Vlachos played an all over the place game and was famous for his feud with Kass McQuillen throughout the season. Tony was also known for finding hidden immunity idols which can save you from being eliminated from the game.
He came back in season 40, Winners at War, where he would go on to win again making him the second person to win Survivor twice following Sandra Diaz-Twine.
Another notable individual from this season is Brice Johnston. While he was voted off pretty early in the game he is more widely known for his popular podcast, The Purple Pants Podcast, where he has covered many reality TV shows including Survivor.
Both of these seasons are great starting points for people who may want to get into Survivor and if haven’t I highly recommend you check them out!
