Survivor: San Juan Del Sur - Blood vs Water

Cape Town – As part of its third dramatic schedule reshuffle in a year SABC3 has moved its iconic Monday bulwark show Survivor to Tuesdays. 

The 29th season, Survivor: San Juan Del Sur - Blood vs Water will kick off on Tuesday, 4 April at 19:30.

SABC3 has given no reason or explanation for the day change. 

The very popular veteran American reality show is one of the last remaining SABC3 legacy programmes from the channel's "quality shows" era and still generates enough buzz and pulls enough viewers to secure its spot on SABC3's monthly most watched programmes list.

This season, set in the same Pacific Ocean location as Survivor: Nicaragua and Survivor: Redemption Island, has 9 pairs of loved ones competing against each other in two tribes, Coyopa and Hunahpu.

The 18 contestants include brothers, a married couple, a father and son, a father and daughter, a daughter and mother, the twins Nadiya and Natalie from The Amazing Race, a gay couple, and two dating couples.

This season of Survivor will see the return of Exile Island with a hidden immunity idol in the mix.

The 7th season of Tropika Island of Treasure Seychelles started on Monday night on SABC3.

With Survivor starting on Tuesday – and with Island of Treasure at 13 episodes running just one episode less than Survivor's 14 – it means that viewers will be seeing two island based reality competition shows on consecutive weeknights, on the same channel, over the next three months.
