Survivor România is a Romanian reality game show based on the international Survivor format. Following the premise of other versions of the format, the program features a group of contestants who are marooned in an isolated island location, where they must provide food, water, fire, and shelter for themselves. The contestants compete in challenges for rewards and immunity from elimination. The contestants are progressively eliminated from the game as they vote each other off the island until only one remains and is awarded the title of "Sole Survivor" and the grand prize of 250.000 de lei.
The series first aired in 2009 on the Kanal D named Rătăciți în Panama (Lost in Panama). In 2016, another edition aired on the Pro TV named Supraviețuitorul (Survivor). Both iterations of the series only lasted one season due to low ratings.
In 13 November 2019, Kanal D, announced that it would be reviving the series in 2020. The series commenced airing on 18 January 2020. Unlike its predecessors, the series was renewed by Kanal D for another season for 2021 In 2022 the show will be moved on Pro TV.
Format and rules
The series follows the same general format as the other editions of the show. The players are split between two "tribes", are taken to a remote isolated location and are forced to live off the land with meager supplies for an extended period of time. Frequent physical and mental challenges are used to pit the teams against each other for rewards, such as food or luxuries, or for "immunity", forcing the other tribe to attend "Tribal Council", where they 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.
Differences in format
Unlike most versions of Survivor, with a maximum of one Reward Challenge before elimination, the Romanian version performs up to four Reward Challenges before the Immunity Challenge.
Another difference in rules between Survivor România and other editions is how the unexpected eliminations are handled. On Survivor România, when a player is eliminated from the game outside of "Tribal Council" (either by being removed for medical reasons, or quitting), the player is replaced by a completely new contestant, who will take their place and the game continues as planned.
Another difference in Romanian version is the public votes. Before the Tribal, members of the losing tribe fight each other for an Immunity Necklace. Also, in the Romanian version two Immunity Challenges are performed, these will decide the number of members of each tribe that will be nominated. Instead of the most voted person on the Tribal Council having to leave the competition, the tribe(s) votes to nominate one or two of its members. Then the winner(s), one male and one female of the Individual Immunity selects the last nominee from the tribe. Finally, the nominees face the public votes in which the loser will be sent home. In the end, the public also votes for which player should be considered the "Sole Survivor" and be awarded the grand prize.
