SURVIVOR is back — and this time, it’s fans versus favourites, as 10 superfans of the show and 10 all-stars compete against each other on the island of Micronesia near Palau.

Survivor: Micronesia — Fans vs Favourites is the 16th season of the reality show and the third to include contestants from past seasons.

The show was filmed in ­Palau, and the locations were the same as those used in Survivor: Palau . Exile Island also returns this season after being absent from Survivor: China.
