SURVIVOR premiered May 31, 2000 and ultimately changed the television landscape. Since the first group of castaways were marooned on the beaches of Borneo 20 years ago, the game has evolved and adapted. Almost 600 castaways have played the game, and only 38 were crowned with the title of Sole Survivor, with Sandra Diaz-Twine being the only castaway to earn the title on two separate seasons.

 

SURVIVOR AT 40: GREATEST MOMENTS AND PLAYERS is produced by S.E.G. Holdco., LLC. Executive produced by Jeff Probst and Matt Van Wagenen and produced by Brittany Crapper.
