THE 30th season of America’s Emmy Award-winning Survivor will celebrate its 15th anniversary and take on a new theme when it is shown on SABC3 at 7.30pm every Tuesday, starting tomorrow (July 18).

The newest edition will feature the first-time theme of “Worlds Apart”, with castaways from very different backgrounds divided into the three separate tribes. The all-new castaways will be grouped by White Collar, Blue Collar and No Collar.

The White Collars (Masaya Tribe), known for making the rules, includes a corporate executive, a retail buyer and a marketing director.  The Blue Collars (Escameca Tribe), known to follow the rules, consists of a postal worker, an oil driller and a contractor.

The No Collars (Nargarote Tribe) boasts free spirits who are known to break the rules. This tribe consists of a coconut salesman, a sailing instructor and a YouTube sensation.

These three tribes will have very different approaches to how they play the game and interact with each other, while sharing the same goal: to outwit, outplay, outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor and winner of the $1 million dollar prize.

The American series premiered on May 31, 2000, on the CBS network. It is hosted by television personality Jeff Probst, who is also an executive producer of the show, along with Mark Burnett and original creator, Parsons.

South African TV audiences are behind in the series – the 34th season, Survivor: Game Changes, premiered on March 8 and ended on May 24 this year, reports Wikipedia.

The site adds that the series has been renewed for a 35th season, Survivor: Heroes vs Healers vs Hustlers, which is scheduled to air in the US from September 27.
