Survivor: Jordan is the fifth season of the second generation Suitman's Survivor Series, which began on May 26, 2013, and ended with a live reunion on June 7, 2013.

It ended with Will C. defeating Avery F. at the Final Tribal Council in a unanimous 7-0 Jury vote. At the Reunion, Will won Player of the Season, while Joe won Fan Favorite and Game won the Bentertainment Award.

Production

This season featured sixteen castaways, fourteen new and two returning. The returning castaways were Porsche F. from Survivor: Saint Lucia and John P. from Survivor: Great Britain. The tribes for this season were named after cities in Jordan. The tribes were Karameh, wearing red, and Madaba, in dark green. The insignia of Karameh is a wolf, while the insignia of Madaba is a lion. On Day 6, the two tribes merged into the Amman tribe, wearing black.

34 people applied, 20 were cut from the casting, and 14 went on to become the castaways competing in the game along with the returnees. The full cast of sixteen was revealed on April 8, 2013 and the tribal designations were revealed on April 15, 2013.

Twists

  • Exile Island: This twist temporarily forces contestants out of the game so that they cannot vote or be voted out at Tribal Council. Discontinued on Day 11. The island also has an extra Hidden Idol.
  • Returning Players: Two former castaways (John P. and Porsche F.) returned as they were voted out in tenth place in their respective seasons, meaning they made the merge but not the jury.
  • Tribe Switch: On Day 4, the Karameh and Madaba tribes underwent a tribe switch, mixing up the tribes. The one person not picked to be on a tribe went to Exile Island and joined the tribe that next voted out a player.
  • Double Tribal Council: On Day 5, due to a deadlocked challenge, both tribes went to Tribal Council to vote someone out. This was not intended originally.
  • Hidden Immunity Idols: There was one hidden idol placed in each tribe camp, which could be found by correctly guessing the answer the clues sent daily. There was also a third idol out on Exile Island.

The Total Votes is the number of votes a castaway received during Tribal Councils where the castaway was eligible to be voted out of the game, excluding tiebreakers. It does not include the votes received during the final Tribal Council.

^1 As Alex was last picked in the tribe switch, he went to Exile Island for a day, before re-joining the game on the Madaba tribe, who had just voted someone out.
^2 Gerard played a Hidden Immunity Idol on Joe, therefore two votes against Joe were not counted. Joe then played a idol on himself on Day 9, causing five more votes against him to be voided.
