Survivor: Canary Islands – Make Your Mark is the thirty-eighth season of the second generation Suitman's Survivor Series, which began on January 3, 2017, and ended with a live reunion on January 25, 2017.

It ended with Christian L. defeating Brian C. at the Final Tribal Council in a 7-2 vote. At the Reunion, Christian also won Fan Favorite.

Production

This season features twenty castaways, divided into two tribes of ten. Ten members of the cast are returning players who have played once but never won, and are hoping to finally "make their mark" on the series. They are labelled as "last chancers". The other ten castaways are new players to Suitman's Survivor, who wish to get their names in the history books themselves. They are labeled as "first chancers". The tribes this season are named after the Canary Islands. The tribes are Alegranza, wearing gold, and El Hierro, in blue. Graciosa, a third tribe, was introduced on Day 3, wearing red. On Day 9, the tribes merged into Phlophost, wearing black.

32 potential rookies applied, 22 were cut from casting, and 10 went on to become castaways competing in the game, along with the 9 production-selected veterans, and the Last Chance Saloon winner. The cast and tribal designations were revealed in full on December 30, 2016.

Twists

  • Make Your Mark: This season, the castaways were given the ability to shape their fate, by voting pre-season on which six key twists would be in play. If both tribes select a same twist, that twist automatically goes into play. If they each pick a different twist, the viewers get to decide between the two tribe's individual selections.
  • First Chancers vs. Last Chancers: For the first time since Rejects vs. Royals, the tribes were divided based upon the castaways status as a returning or new player. The newbies were known as "First Chancers", as this is their first shot to play the game. The returnees were known as "Last Chancers", owing to the fact that this could be their final opportunity to win.
  • Redemption Island: Returning twist from Brunei and Bingo vs. Suitman. When a player gets voted out from Tribal Council, that player will not be eliminated right away. Instead, the said contestant will go to Redemption Island. When the next person gets voted out, the two players will compete in a "duel." The winner gets to stay at the island, while the loser is eliminated from the game for good. At a certain point, the last person standing on Redemption Island will return to the main game and will continue their pursuit of the one million dollar prize and the title of Sole Survivor.
  • Blackjack Idols: Returning twist from Kiribati. In order to receive a hidden immunity idol clue, castaways from the winning tribe must compete against the host in a simple game of blackjack. Win the hand and you get a clue. If a castaway is lucky enough to get 21, they will receive an idol straight up.
  • Last Chance Saloon: Following the casting of all but one of the main cast, a group of potential castaways entered into a mini version of Survivor, in a bid to succeed over all the others and gain the twentieth spot on the season. This is the second season to feature this twist after Solomon Islands.
  • Three-Tribe Format: Although initially starting with two tribes, the addition of the auxiliary Graciosa tribe on Day 3 means that this is the fourteenth total season to feature more than two tribes, and the fifth to use it for a returnee/newbie mix season, after Reclamation, Kiribati, Puerto Rico and Ayia Thekla.
  • Returning Players: Ten former contestants, all of whom have played only once and did not win the game, returned this season as "last chancers". They were chosen for their recognisable efforts and memorability in their first season, regardless of their final placement.
  • Double Tribe Switch: On Day 3, the Alegranza and El Hierro tribes underwent a tribe switch, mixing up the tribes. The Graciosa tribe was introduced in this swap. Then again on Day 6, the tribes were randomly switched again.
  • Tribe Mutiny: On Day 7, one day after the second swap, the castaways were given the chance to mutiny to the other tribe if they were unhappy with their new swapped one. Coldan D., Connor C., and Jake S. took this chance.
  • Double Tribal Council: On Day 7, two tribes went to Tribal Council. Due to the three-tribe format, the challenge was still for tribal immunity, but with only one tribe winning.
  • Performance Equals Power: At the Immunity Challenge on Day 12, extra votes were given out to castaways based on their performance in the challenge. A better score at the challenge gave castaways more votes to cast at Tribal Council that round.
  • Hidden Immunity Idols: There was one hidden idol placed in each tribe camp, which could be found by correctly guessing the answer to the clues sent daily to the successful castaways in Blackjack Idols. Extra idols can also be found by getting 21 in Blackjack Idols. There was also an extra hidden idol in the post-merge camp.
  • Immunity Freeze: Returning twist from Honduras. This power cancels the immunity challenge for the next round, leaving all castaways vulnerable at Tribal Council. It was won by Christian L., but never used.
  • Legacy Advantage: A mystery advantage won by Jake S. at the Survivor Auction. It would grant its holder an advantage in the game, given that he or she makes it to finale night. If he or she is eliminated before finale night, the advantage must be willed to another player. It was revealed that the Legacy Advantage was the new Juror Removal twist.
  • Juror Removal: A castaway would get the power to remove a juror of their choice.
