Survivor: Switzerland is the fifth season of the Survivor Wiki's Online Reality Game (ORG), Survivor: Wikia!

Highly infamous, Switzerland has been panned by many due to the large number of quitters, cheaters, and inactives. Despite this, Switzerland also had its merits, including the premise of the season, the active members, and the efforts of the moderators to keep the season going.

39 days, 20 people, 1 SURVIVOR!

Twists

  • 4 Tribes: This season consists of 4 starter tribes.
  • Hidden Immunity Idols: There is one Hidden Immunity Idol, which is good until there are only five contestants remaining.
  • Exile Mountain: The tribe who wins reward is allowed to send one person from any of the three opposing tribes to Exile Mountain, where the exiled player receives a clue to help them locate the Hidden Immunity Idol. 
  • Double Trouble: On Day 6, two tribes (instead of one) go to Tribal Council to vote-off a player. This means there were only two teams won Tribal Immunity instead of three.
  • Tribe Dissolve: After the Day 9 Tribal Council, each tribe has 4 players remaining and is asked to split into two pairs, with one pair going to Glarus and the other pair going to Ticino. Valais and Lucerne are dissolved in the process.

Changes

  • There are no returnees in this season.
  • Due to one tribe going on a losing streak last season, this season begins with a challenge that all castaways have to complete. The moderators consider those scores and divide the tribes as equally as possible.
  • 'Absurd' nicknames irrelevant to a contestant's username or first name are banned.

All underlined votes denote that they were not able to participate at Tribal Council, incurring themselves a "self-vote."
^1 Cal played a hidden immunity idol on himself; however, no votes were cast against him.
^2 A firemaking challenge was held due to the vote being deadlocked. John Arvin lost the challenge, causing him to be eliminated.
^3 The final vote resulted in a tie, so the second runner-up, Lincoln, became a member of the jury to cast the tiebreaking vote.

Trivia

The torch design of Survivor-Wikia: Switzerland

  • A moderator of this season, Alfons, is from Switzerland and speaks all of Switzerland's official languages.
  • Glarus and Lucerne are named after cities, whilst Valais and Ticino are two of the regions in Switzerland.
  • This season was originally meant to be an 'Adults Only' season, but this idea was abandoned as there weren't going to be enough participants if it happened.
  • This is the first season where Americans do not make up at least half the cast.
  • This season started while Survivor: Egypt was still running.
  • This season, along with Survivor: Nepal, formerly held the most amount of female competitors competing with 3.
  • This is the first season where the first two eliminated castaways are not from the same tribe.
    • This is also the first season that the first two castaways voted out are not from the same tribe.
  • Switzerland currently has the biggest gap between two tribal councils. Due to Jad's disqualification and Ian's quit, the first and second Tribal Councils were six days apart.
    • This record was tied in Survivor: Turkey, when Kara's evacuation caused the fourth and fifth Tribal Councils to be six days apart.
  • This is the first season having a three-way tie at tribal council.
  • This is the only season to have two people disqualified for entirely separate reasons.
  • Switzerland has the greatest number of people who left the game by means other than a vote or duel, with 5.
  • This is the first season to have contestants who were previously not on the jury be added later on.
  • This is the second season to have a tie at the Final Tribal Council, after Survivor: Laos.
  • Switzerland is the first season to feature a tie-breaker challenge.
  • Switzerland is the first season to have both of their all-stars eliminated in Survivor: All-Stars.
  • Since Lance from Survivor: Egypt was a sockpuppet of Chris, this is technically the first season with an all-new cast
