Once again, the season is set a more punishing, faster pace. Food is scarce, rewards are minimal and the challenges are as brutal as ever.
Survivor 44 will begin with three tribes: Ratu, Soka, and Tika. Host Jeff Probst is back to oversee the proceedings. He recently told TV Insider that this installment features the first showmance since season 37 in 2018.
Like in previous seasons, the first episode will test the tribes immediately by making them choose between a physical or mental challenge to earn their camp essentials. Then, each tribe must choose one person to take a journey and make the first big decision of the game
