Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In the first season of "Survivor", sixteen castaways were marooned on which island near Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia?

Answer: Pulau Tiga

Found in the Sabah region of Malaysia, Pulau Tiga is a major island in Pulau Tiga National Park, a large region comprised of several volcanic-made islands. Here, the first two tribes of survivor, Tagi and Pagong, faced off to become the Sole Survivor. During their first few weeks on the island, the contestants located mud volcanoes and trekked through dense jungles to reach Tribal Council.

While some days were wet and rainy on the coast, others were extremely hot and humid due to the location's proximity to the Equator.

The island was also a natural home for several snakes, many of which were poisonous, and rats, as alluded to in Sue Hawk's memorable final Tribal Council speech.
2. The second season of "Survivor" sent sixteen castaways to the Australian Outback, specifically in which of these states?

Answer: Queensland

Just as "Survivor" started to hit its stride, the show made its way to the second location in its series, the Australian Outback. This season of the show marooned sixteen new castaways, dropping them in the outback by bush plane. The location was three hours southwest of Cairns in Far North Queensland, deep enough into the bush to leave them truly stranded along the Herbert River.

The shoot was plagued with natural disasters including a camp flooding towards the end of the game and several wildfires.

Interestingly, one major reward took players to the Great Barrier Reef.
3. "Survivor: Africa" placed tribes into boma-fenced camps in the Shaba National Reserve, an area in which country?

Answer: Kenya

Living off cornmeal and very little water for a total of thirty-nine days, sixteen new contestants were marooned in the savannah of Kenya, forced to brave the elements, each other, and even some animals on occasion. The location was considered "better on paper" according to host Jeff Probst considering the beauty of the location but due to a lack of supplies and water, the castaways were plagued with fatigue and dehydration. Shava National Reserve was also the filming location for "Out of Africa", a film shown during a drive-in movie reward during the show.
4. The fourth "Survivor" season took place in the Marquesas Islands in the South Pacific, specifically on which remote island?

Answer: Nuku Hiva

Part of French Polynesia, the Marquesas became the exotic backdrop of this fourth season of the show, taking sixteen castaways to the South Pacific for the very first time. Nuku Hiva was the setting this season; also the largest island of the Marquesas, one camp was rich in fruit and the other featured a beautiful waterfall. On many occasions, the tribe members were also bothered by local flies called 'No-Nos', so much so that future seasons would not return to the Marquesas. Marquesas was originally posed as a back-up locale for this season of the show; it was selected after the September 11 attacks in the United States complicated the option for "Survivor: Arabia", which was supposed to be set in Jordan.
5. The fifth season of "Survivor" took castaways to Tarutao National Marine Park in which Asian nation?

Answer: Thailand

"Survivor: Thailand" aired in 2002 and brought another sixteen castaways out of their comfort zones, this time to live in the beautiful Andaman Sea. Tarutao National Marine Park became the home to both tribes, one of which lived on a shady beach at sunset and the other of which lived in a large cave facing the sunrise.

While tribes arrived in the sun, the rainy season soon hit Thailand, drenching the survivors. "Survivor: Thailand's" settings were beautiful and majestic, but this season was often considered a least favourite, even by host Jeff Probst who criticized the contestants and game play particularly in past interviews.
6. The sixth bout of "Survivor" took castaways to the Amazon. On what Brazilian river were the survivors situated in this season?

Answer: Rio Negro

Beginning this season of the show, sixteen new castaways took a ride down the Rio Negro by steamboat from Manaus, commencing their journey by splitting into two teams, one of men and one of women, and finding their camps on the banks of the river, the lifesource of the Amazon. Specifically in the Amazonas state in Northwest Brazil, the region was pelted by heavy rain on occasion (as is the case with rainforests).

Many of the tasks in this season were situated on the river though obvious threats were apparent. Everything from crocs to piranhas could be seen swimming in the deep-- one reward task, in fact, was piranha fishing in the Rio Negro.
7. The seventh season of "Survivor", centered around a pirate theme, was held in which of these locations?

Answer: Pearl Islands

Airing in 2003, "Survivor: Pearl Islands" was the seventh iteration of the show, bringing sixteen candidates into the uninhabited islands south of Panama to vie for the one million dollar prize. When seven castaways were eliminated, two had the chance to return to the game as outcasts-- one of them, Lillian, became the runner-up. For the first time in the history of the show, the two camps (Drake and Morgan) were on separate islands a great distance apart. Setting up camps on the white sand beaches of the Pearl Islands proved difficult for both groups-- one tried to build their camp along a crumbling rock wall.

The rising tides also proved to be a challenge, especially when trying to locate buried treasure.
8. In which country, previously visited by an earlier "Survivor" season, did eighteen castaways return for "Survivor: All-Stars"?

Answer: Panama

In back-to-back seasons, the "Survivor" crew set up shop in the Pearl Islands of Panama. For this second season, the old camps weren't revisited and a new Tribal Council location was created. For the first time, three tribes of six were created at the start of the season; all three set up in camps on the beach and traveled into the jungle to get water. Most of the challenges were also held on the beach or in the water and each took on elements from previous seasons' events.

The show returned to Panama's Pearl islands in 2006 for "Survivor: Exile Island".
9. In Vanuatu for season nine, one of the tribes was named for this local volcano known by what name?

Answer: Mt. Yasur

For this ninth season, the tribes split into a group of nine men and a group of nine women as they embarked on a trip to the 'Islands of Fire'. In Vanuatu, the tribes split up to reside at new camps on different sides of the same island only uniting when ten remained.

This environment was quite unique-- at one point, an earthquake brought on by a nearby volcanic eruption shook the remaining tribe members. For several rewards, the winners visited local volcanoes and tribal villages. Almost all of the challenges were completed on the water.

The womens' tribe was named Yasur after the volcano shown in the image.
10. "Survivor: Palau" was filmed in what state, also the name of one of the tribes in this season?

Answer: Koror

This tenth season, filmed in 2004, brought eighteen new tribe members to a remote locale, specifically the beautiful islands of Palau. Here, tribes raced to the beach, sharing a night together before breaking into two tribes of eight (and eliminating two people right off the bat).

The Ulong tribe was slowly destroyed with one member, Stephenie, left to fight for her survival in Koror. She and fellow tribe member Bobby Jon returned for season eleven. The Koror beach was plagued with rats throughout while the waters were teeming with sharks. On one occasion, for a reward, the Ulong team was able to swim in a jellyfish lake.
