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.

This season introduced several alterations to the game format. The process for resolving a tied vote was changed for this season, removing the second ballot where only non-tied castaways were allowed to vote between the tied castaways and proceeding directly to the procedure to resolve a deadlocked tie: an open deliberation between non-tied voters. The rest of the process remained the same. The format of the Final Tribal Council, in which jurors individually addressed the finalists by delivering a statement or asking questions, was changed to a moderated discussion between the finalists and jurors.

DescriptionEdit

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 ("Everything You Need to Know" with Josh Wigler and cast assessments with Nicole Cesternino and Angie Caunce), and a first: a draft among Rob and several members of the RHAP community of the players.

During the season, RHAP's Survivor podcast repertoire continued from the previous season. It included Survivor Know-it-Alls, exit interviews, the "This Week in Survivor History" quiz, separate recap and voicemail podcasts, "The Wiggle Room" and "Why _____ Lost." Know-it-Alls did its requisite show in New York, as well as its first international show at the Sheraton Centre in Toronto.

List of Podcasts and GuestsEdit

NOTES: Rob Cesternino appeared on every podcast of the season except for the blogger pre-season show and the finale Know-it-Alls. Stephen Fishbach appeared on every episode of Know-it-Alls except Episode 5. Josh Wigler appeared on every episode of "The Wiggle Room". David Bloomberg appeared on every episode of "Why ____ Lost." Jordan Kalish appeared on every exit interview podcast except Episode 4.
