Survivor: Game Changers - Mamanuca Islands is the 34th season of Survivor and the fifteenth season of coverage for RHAP, featuring 20 returning castaways. It is the fourth season to feature entirely returning players, with each player coming back to the show for their "game changing" contributions in their previous appearances.
Coverage of Game Changers began in January 2017. Due to the cast of entirely returning players, Rob held an application process to find "experts" for each of the players. Those experts then appeared on the podcast with Rob to dissect their player's previous Survivor and RHAP appearances. These podcasts dropped after the official cast announcement, along with the typical pre-season fare, and a first: a draft among Rob and several members of the RHAP community of the players.
