Survivor Insights 87: What’s The Best Survivor Season in History?

It is a tough and demanding task for me to rank the best season of SURVIVOR. I am bias (in terms of preferences) and I could give you all my good reasons why Survivor Panama Exile Island is my best season in history. Let’s say you have studied this show for ten years and if you’ll based your judgments on outwit, outplay and outlast, perhaps Season 12 is only average or below average and Aras-Danielle is a very forgettable final two. That’s your opinion folks and I completely understand that. This TV Show is just a game after all and if you and I have similar views, this world is a boring place. Freedom is a choice and it’s your right to say or write whatever you want. However, only one thing is for sure, I am still keeping my stand and I won’t be swayed.

Dalton Ross and Tom Santilli have written their own versions of “Most Memorable Survivor Season Ever” and it pretty frustrates to see Survivor Panama Exile Island is not on their top ten list. Although Jeff Probst declared it as one of the colorful seasons during the reunion, Santilli and Ross still rank the season at #15 and #14 respectively. That’s fine though. I seem to think having ranked outside the top ten is better than to be last, right?

  1. That’s is a tough decision. I can’t give my ranking because I haven’t seen all of them. However, my favorites from what I’ve seen are Heroes vs. Villains, Amazon, Fans vs Favs, and Samoa (thats in no particular order).


  2. Survivor Amazon rocks! This season has several likeable characters and the younger ones were flirting with each other. Can you still remember that challenge when Heidi & Jenna stripped all their clothes off in exchange of peanut butter & chocolate? LOL, that was fun!

    I suggest you to watch Survivor 1 & 2. The editing in season one is not great as compared to the present but this is the real Survivor before all these crazy twist and turns.


  3. Yea I’ve seen season one and two and I wasn’t a big fan of either, not that they were bad seasons just not my favorites. I was surprised how quick of a decision it was for Jenna and heidi to get naked for peanut butter lol


  4. It only proves that your way of thinking while on SURVIVOR is primarily controlled by your unconscious and instincts. There are times that you’ll just do what you want without thinking properly. LOL


  5. @dean: I agree, the challenges for the earlier seasons were kinda boring since there were no commentaries from Jeff to give viewers an update about what’s going on in the challenge. But at the same time, there’s the beauty of it since the excitement of the challenge speaks for itself.
