Survivor: Kaôh Rōng was the 32nd season of Survivor and the thirteenth season of coverage for RHAP. Like Survivor: Cagayan, eighteen people were divided into three tribes of six based on "Brains" (intelligence), "Brawn" (athleticism), and "Beauty" (attractiveness).[1]

Though this was the 32nd season to air, it was the 31st to shoot, having been filmed before Survivor: Cambodia, which aired first; the two seasons were filmed back-to-back in the same location. Like all seasons from Survivor: Fiji onward, this season featured hidden immunity idols that could be played after the votes were cast but before they were read. But this season also featured a new twist whereby two of these idols could be combined into one single "super idol" that could be played after the votes were read, similar to the idols found in Panama, Cook Islands, and Cagayan. This season also introduced the power to remove a member of the jury, which was given to the finalist who won the final reward challenge.

DescriptionEdit

The coverage of Kaôh Rōng began in January of 2016, with the release of the cast. Rob started his coverage with his requisite "7 Things You Need to Know" podcast with Josh Wigler. RHAP also went through its typical pre-season coverage, including cast assessments with Nicole Cesternino, Corinne Kaplan, and Angie Caunce with her character types system.

Kaôh Rōng also marked the return of Stephen Fishbach to Survivor Know-it-Alls after his absence due to his participation in Survivor: Cambodia. Wigler, who had recently covered for Fishbach on Know-it-Alls, started doing his own weekly segment with Rob titled "The Wiggle Room," which covered the story and narrative elements of the season. The weekly "This Week in Survivor History" segment and "Why ____ Lost" returned to the line-up. Additionally, after separating the recap and voicemails section of the recap podcast on several occasions of previous seasons, Rob decided to keep them permanently segregated. For the first time, Rob held a "town hall" after the finale and took listener calls and questions pertaining to the final result of the season.

For the first time, two live Know-it-All events occurred during the season. A West Coast edition of the show premiered at the Hollywood Improv on February 24, while the now-requisite East Coast edition occurred on April 13.
