Back To Basics
Twist Information
Description A return to the classic, simple, original format of Survivor.
Appearance(s) Mongolia

The Back To Basics is a twist that originated in TTJ's Survivor: Mongolia.


Back to Basics returns the game to its original format. Sixteen castaways, two tribes of eight and a merge at 10, plus Jury of 7 and final 2, with no Hidden Immunity Idols and no extra twists. The reason for having this twist is to make the game more basic, simple and ultimately fairer. There are no twists that could force you to change up your gameplan - everything in the game happens solely because of the players within the game. Except for Survivor: Mongolia, there were a total of fiteen castaways and they were divided into three tribes of five.
