A reality tv show on CBS, created by Mark Burnett, that debued in the summer of 2000 and features sixteen contestants or “castaways” originally composed of two teams of eight that live in seclusion in a remote part of the world to eat bugs, snakes, dirt, game and scorpions for like a month for a million dollars. Physical competitions are held each week to determine which team will win an award challenge, and then another challenge to determine who will win immunity. The team that doesnt win immunity must vote off a teammate. This also happens after the tribal merge but immunity goes to the individual instead and an individual is then voted out of the game. Midway through the season, the two teams are merged to form a single tribe when the real cut-throat part of the game really begins, where your friend is now your foe. The winner of the $1 million is announced on live television on the last episode.

The show has been filmed in such remote locations as Borneo (the 1st season), the Australian Outback, the Marcaisas, the Amazon, China, Pearl Islands, Panama and Fiji.
Let's be honest, the only way you can appear as a contestant on Survivor, is by being gay (Richard Hatch, the original winner), a model, a freek or incrediblly narcistic like Johnny Fairplay (the most evil Survivor contestant ever). Normal people need not apply.

A television show, firstly designed by a man called Charlie Parsons, where around 16-20 castaways (contestants) are to survive 39 days on an island, surviving the island and the players. The game mostly consists nowadays of the players trying to make all sorts of moves, from trying to play a podium to save themselves, to making players give up immunity, and have their name echo out (in a embarrassing way).
Warren: So, what you think of the seventh season of Survivor?
Yassen: It was alright, at least the editing was somewhat on the tribal survival. Its all cutthroat moves nowadays.

What Americans call survivor is what Canadian's call camping.
Americans: Wow I can't believe they did that in Survivor!
Canadians: What they only went on a camping trip for a couple of weeks, I did that last year for fun.

Great show to watch, terrible show to be on. It's like if an emotional Chinese or Mexican who makes minimum wage and wants to win money by working even more.
