Series Chronology
Previous Season Survivor ORG 7: Vietnam
Next Season Survivor ORG 9: Nigeria

Survivor: Rio San Juan, also stylized as Survivor: Rio San Juan- Friends vs Favorites, is the eighth installment in the Koror ORG Survivor series.

Considered a large improvement over the preceding season, Rio San Juan was a success with the community. The Friends vs Favorites twist was met with praise for its original take on the usual Blood vs Water format. A split merge (eventually leading to the series first two rock draws) created a tense dynamic and led to great gameplay. In the end, the winner was crowned in one of the tightest finishes in the ORG's history. Overall, Rio San Juan is ranked in the upper half of seasons, thanks to its exciting moments at that time in the wiki's history.

Production

The season was announced on July 26th, 2014. Hosting apps were opened once Norway had finished, followed by casting applications opening on August 20, 2014.

Twists/Changes

  • Friends vs. Favorites- In a play on the classic Blood vs Water twist, ten returnees from the past seven seasons of Koror ORG will return and play against their "friends", newbies with a close bond or friendship with their said returnee. The La Venada tribe consisted of the favorites, while the Mombacho tribe consisted of the friends.
  • Exile Island- Two people will be sent to Exile Island each round during the pre-merge, with only one going during the merge. Whenever someone goes to exile, they will miss immunity and/or tribal council. Hidden at Exile Island are clues to the hidden immunity idol.
  • Mutiny- On Day 13, the players were given the option to mutiny to the other tribe to join their loved ones, or stay loyal to their original tribe.
  • Pre-Merge Auction- On Day 14, the players were welcomed with the wiki's first pre-merge auction, in which the teams were given $500 to bid on various items to help out the tribe.
