Descriptions

Hidden Immunity Idols

Main article: Hidden Immunity Idol

A Hidden Immunity Idol is a possession that when played grants the possessor Immunity at that designated Tribal Council. Hidden Immunity Idols are the most common twists in Survivor ORG history, appearing in every season thus far. Not to be confused with the Tribal Immunity Idol or Individual Immunity Necklace, this Idol can rarely be won in challenges, and usually takes a clue to find its location.

Returning Players

Main article: Returning Players

Returning Players are a recurring twist in the Survivor ORG Series, which originated in Survivor: Hawaii. This twist allows former contestants to re-enter the game whether they are alone, on a tribe of other returners, or with an entire season of returners. Returning Players have noticed to due notably well, as the Final Three of Survivor: Cuba was comprised of all returning players.
