Each week at Tribal Council when a castaway is voted off, they will be sent to an isolated island called "Redemption Island," where they will live alone in exile.
To stay on Redemption Island, they will need to compete in a duel against the next person eliminated at Tribal Council and sent to the Island.
The winner of each duel earns the right to continue fighting for an opportunity to return to the game and the chance to compete for the title of Sole Survivor; the loser is sent home.
The battle unfolds in Nicaragua where the 18 castaways will be divided into two Tribes of nine: the Ometepe Tribe and the Zapatera Tribe.
The tribes are comprised of individuals from all different backgrounds with the same ultimate goal: to be the Sole Survivor.
While 16 of the contestants are new to the competition, two are former castaways who will be given another chance to compete for the million dollar prize and one last shot at redemption.
And for the first time ever, two former castaways, who have a score to settle with each other, return to seek redemption and a shot, once again, at the title of "Sole Survivor".
Survivor Redemption Island starts on Sun 5 Feb at 19:00 on M-Net West.
