Series Chronology
Next Season Survivor: Hawaii
DVD Cover

Survivor: Laos is the first season of Survivor Wikia.

Considered by most as the 'test season', Laos is notable for its miniature cast and length, featuring ten castaways and spanning 24 days. It also is noted for pioneering many features of the ORG that are unique from the canon series, including cross-tribal alliances, the formation of a tribe halfway through the pre-merge, and the first ever tie at the FTC.

The tribes names, Shúa and Hísshe, comes from the crow language for the colors blue and red respectively.

Twists and ChangesEdit

  • Tribe Swap: On Day 8, the remaining members of the two tribes were switched, but a new tribe, Bimmaáhchiia was formed.
  • Dissolved Tribe: After the Day 9 Tribal Council, the two remaining members of Shúa were dissolved by the two other tribes.
  • Hidden Immunity Idol: The contestant who won the Day 13 Immunity Challenge not only won immunity for their tribe, but also the Hidden Immunity Idol. The idol was good until the final five.

Season SummaryEdit

The first ORG season took place in Laos, and there were originally two tribes: Hisshe and Shua. Hisshe consisted of Hickman, Ometepe, Andrew, Alex, and Adam. The Shua tribe consisted of Alfons, Blaine, Chris, Henry, and Clove.

Hisshe was a slightly weaker tribe, losing the first two immunity challenges which resulted in an alliance between Hickman and Ometepe. Both of them had secret alliances with Henry of the other tribe as well. Alex and Adam both approached the two to make an alliance of three. After Andrew was voted out due to inactivity, Ometepe and Hickman turned Adam and Alex against each other. This resulted in a 3-1 vote against Adam. The Hisshe Alliance (Hickman, Ometepe, Alex) was born.

Shua was a stronger tribe who won the first two immunity challenges, but didn't get strategic until the tribe outnumbered Hisshe 5-3. Alfons and Blaine made an alliance, and their opposition was Henry and Chris, another pair. Clove sided with Alfons and Blaine. Everything changed with a tribe switch. Chris and Henry went to a new tribe. Ometepe and Alex became members of Shua, while Alfons and Blaine switched to Hisshe. When the new Shua tribe lost, Clove was outnumbered by Hisshe and was voted out.

The game shifted again when Shua was dissolved. Alex went to Bimmaahchiia, while Ometepe went back to Hisshe. New Hisshe lost the next challenge. Hickman and Blaine were immune during the vote. Alfons targeted Ometepe, while Ometepe targeted Alfons. Blaine joined his ally Alfons in getting Ometepe out. Hickman was fearing for a tie vote, and flipped to the Shua Alliance, eliminating Ometepe.

At the final tribal immunity challenge, the contestants had to make a hidden immunity idol. The contestant with the best idol would win for their team. Blaine of New Hisshe won the idol. New Bimmaachiia was tied between Chris and Alex. Alex later left in a poll.

The merge finally happened at five. Hickman flipped again to Bimmaahchiia, so Henry and Hickman stuck together until the end. Alfons and Blaine were eliminated next. The final three was Hickman, Henry, and Chris. Hickman was praised for his strategies, but some people argued he betrayed too much. Chris was appreciated for his physical game and social game, but people thought he didn't have much strategic game. Henry mastered the physical game, social game, and strategic game, and he got a jury vote from Blaine. However, Hickman had relationships with Ometepe and Alex better than anyone, and he got their votes. Chris got the votes of Alfons and Clove. It was down to Hickman and Chris. Henry was the deciding vote, and Hickman won the game with Henry's vote.

^1 A tie initially occurred between OrangeBirdMaster2 and Mad Russell. However, because he had failed to submit a vote, OrangeBirdMaster2 was eliminated.
^2 Because Henzzy did not cast his vote in time, a tie occurred between Alik99 and Ckarimalis. Alik99 was eliminated by 58% of votes in a poll which was used to break the tie.
^3 A 2-2 tie occurred between Ckarimalis and The Hickman at the Final Tribal Council. Since Henzzy only received 1 vote, he became part of the Jury and cast his vote for the eventual winner.
