SURVIVOR 29: SAN JUAN DEL SUR RETURNS TO SABC 3 THIS APRIL

SURVIVOR, the Emmy Award-winning series returns for its 29th season on SABC 3 from 11th April 2017 at 19:30
This season on Survivor, the “Blood vs. Water” theme returns as all-new castaways compete with – and ultimately against – their loved ones who share the same goal: to outwit, outplay, outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor and winner of the $1 million dollar prize.

Alliances and relationships will be tested and bonds will be broken when mothers, daughters, brothers, spouses and partners vie against each other in the ultimate competition, raising the question of which is thicker: Blood or Water?

This season marks the return of Exile Island, where each week two loved ones square off against one another in a battle that will send the loser to isolation on Exile Island, while the winner receives reward for his/her Tribe.
However, the winner will also have to choose a tribe mate to accompany their loved one to Exile Island.
The battle unfolds when these 18 castaways compete on Survivor:
