Production

This season features fifteen castaways, five returning and ten new, divided into three tribes of six. They are divided based upon three prime categories. The returning players have their own tribe and are dubbed “Favorites”, while the new players are split depending on either having applied for the season, aka the “Fans”, or having been asked to play for being good friends with one of the favorites, aka the “Friends”. The tribes this season were Afyon (Fans), wearing orange, Izmir (Favorites), wearing black, and Tokat (Friends), wearing green. The tribes this season are named after provinces of Turkey. On Day 6, the tribes merged into the Cappadocia tribe, wearing purple, which is named after a popular tourist destination created by soft volcanic stone.

The entire cast of returning and new players were hand-picked by production this season. The castaways were chosen for fitting one of the three divisional categories of the season - Fans, Favorites, and Friends. The full cast of 15 and tribal designations were revealed on June 26, 2017.

Twists

  • Hidden Immunity Idol: There was one hidden idol placed in each tribe camp, which could be found by correctly guessing the answer to the clues sent daily.
  • Returning Players: Five former castaways returned this season, selected because they won Fan Favorite in a previous season.
  • Fans vs. Favorites vs. Friends: The tribes were divided by three distinct categories this season. New players (Afyon), past season fan favorites (Izmir), and close friends of the favorites who’ve never played before (Tokat).
  • Three-Tribe Format: This season the castaways were once again divided into three tribes instead of the usual two. It is the fifth season to feature more than two tribes after Fiji, All Stars, Ethiopia, and the previous season Greece.
  • Cursed Necklace: Castaways who own a Cursed Necklace can immune themselves from a single Tribal Council following a loss at a challenge. However, the person voted out at Tribal will then get to decide who gets the necklace next.
  • Tribe Switch: On Day 4, the three tribes were randomly shuffled into two new tribes of six. The Afyon tribe was dismantled in this swap.
