Back to Basics is a 'twist' that featured back-to-back in the first two seasons, Survivor: Mongolia and Survivor: Saint Lucia. It returned five seasons later in Survivor: Venezuela.

Overview

Back to Basics returns the game to its original format. Sixteen castaways, two tribes of eight and a merge at 10, plus Jury of 7 and final 2, with no Hidden Immunity Idols and no extra twists. The reason for having this twist is to make the game more basic, simple and ultimately fairer. There are no twists that could force you to change up your gameplan - everything in the game happens solely because of the players within the game.
