Survivor: New Zealand, also stylized as Survivor: New Zealand - Lifelines, is the twenty-seventh installment in the Koror ORG Survivor series.
New Zealand received a generally positive response from the community, with people praising the Lifeline twist, as well as the eventual winner. The cast as a whole was also well received, and the shocking rock draw in the Final 5 was seen as one of the highlights of the season. A split Final Tribal Council, and the Lifeline twist itself, led to an unpredictable outcome throughout the entire season.
The season was announced on December 11th, 2016. Applications opened nearly a week later, and were closed two weeks after that.
- Lifelines- Each round, the contestants will be secretly paired up with another player of the opposite tribe. If a player's lifeline is on the winning tribe, and is the highest scorer, or best on the team by other means, then they will be immune at their tribal council. The Lifeline winner will be revealed at the tribal results, and all votes for said player will be negated as if the winner had played a hidden immunity idol. The pairings will be randomized every round, and when the teams become unbalanced, some players will be left without a Lifeline, thus without protection from tribal.
- Auxiliary Tribe- On Day 16, a third tribe will be introduced after the start of the game, but before the merge. At the tribe switch, the tribes will be informed they will be split into three tribes instead of the expected two.
- Hidden Immunity Idols- Hidden Immunity Idols will be in play this season. One idol for each tribe will be hidden at each tribe camp. An idol will be hidden once the tribes merge as well.
- No Escape- Players are not be allowed to quit the game. They must ask to be voted out by their tribe at the following tribal council if they wish to leave.
