Hosted by Jeff Probst for two seasons each year and showcasing some of the most exotic places on Earth, the television show "Survivor" has garnered quite a fan base as well as several Emmy wins and nominations along with plenty of accolades from the television industry. The CBS reality game show is produced by Probst along with executive producer Mark Burnett and creator Charlie Parsons. In 1997 Parsons created the original Survivor, which was a popular Swedish TV series known as "Expedition Robinson." The premise of the American version of Survivor is a rather simple one, outwit, outplay and outlast all of the other players in the game. Survivor takes ordinary people from around the country and divides them into teams, deserting them in some of the most gorgeous yet dangerous locations imaginable. Challenges ranging from the seemingly simple to the outright complicated must be completed for rewards and for immunity from elimination. Eventually, one lone survivor remains after the rest are voted out of the game by their peers. The winner then receives the title of Sole Survivor along with the one million dollar prize. The elimination process of Survivor is one of the game's most exciting elements. Every few days the contestants on the losing team of the most recent challenge meet during a ceremony known as Tribal Council. There, Probst asks probing questions about things such as the mood around camp, who is in what alliance and how the players are interacting with one another in general. Although some contestants look forward to Tribal Council, particularly if there is someone the rest of the group desperately wants out of the game, eliminating players always comes with consequences. After the teams merge into one, players who are voted out become members of the jury, which is the panel ultimately responsible for deciding the game's winner. As team challenges become individual ones approximately midway through the game, the contestants play for themselves instead of together for immunity and reward. Now is when Survivor becomes even more exciting as players work to secure a final spot in the game all while wondering who can be trusted and who can't. Since it first premiered back on May 31, 2000 the reality series Survivor has managed to keep its audiences interested with new twists and turns including hidden immunity idols, unexpected team switches and the return of notorious players from the past.
