Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The show's eleventh season revolved around the Mayan Empire at Laguna Yaxhá in what Central American country?

Answer: Guatemala

In season eleven, castaways returned to the jungle in "Survivor: Guatemala - The Mayan Empire". This season was filmed near Tikal National Park, known for its Mayan temples and ruins. The specific filming location was Yaxhá-Nakúm-Naranjo National Park.

Interesting things to note about this season: the Tribal Council area was built amidst large Mayan ruins and the tribes lived in smaller off-shoot campsites, one of which was temple ruins as well. Most of the challenges were done in the jungle or by the river.
2. The twelfth season of "Survivor" ("Panama") took place at what previously-seen locale for the show?

Answer: Pearl Islands

The first season to feature an official Exile Island, this season was the third to return to the Panamanian Pearl Islands (after "Pearl Islands" and "All-Stars"). Originally, the game started with four tribes and then these were whittled down to two after less than a week. All four tribes were originally relegated to four different islands and one member of the losing tribe was forced to stay on a remote island to search for a Hidden Immunity Idol. Most of the tasks this season were water-themed.
3. In season thirteen, the tribes visited the Cook Islands. Tribal Council was held on which island in the chain?

Answer: Aitutaki

Aitutaki also happened to be the name of one of the four starting tribes (consisting of Aitutaki, Rarotonga, Manihiki, and Puka Puka); all four were islands in the area. This season, tribes were split by ethnicity before merging and swapping on several occasions.

As such, each group was given a different island to reside on. Aitutaki hosted Tribal Council, but tribes lived on Moturakau, Motukitiu, Rapota, and Muritapua. This season, Exile Island was constructed on what seemed to be a sandbar completely devoid of vegetation.
4. "Survivor's" fourteenth season was filmed on Vanua Levu, an island in what Oceanic nation?

Answer: Fiji

In a season dominated by 'Haves' and 'Have-Nots' (a decision later regretted by the producers considering those with the 'Haves' dominated the game), it became clear that the makers of the show felt that a deserted island setting was a 'Have' for the show; Fiji brought nineteen castaways to the third island in a row. Tribes were sequestered on the island of Vanua Levu this time and in the Macuata region. Both tribes (Moto and Ravu) were on the same island; Exile Island was held on Sausau Island, a landmass populated by dangerous, poisonous sea snakes.
5. In "Survivor: China", teams were able to visit the Great Wall of China.

Answer: True

The interesting thing about this season is that it was the first-ever American TV show to be filmed entirely within China. This was also the northern-most season of the show; while temperatures were hot on occasion, they were nothing like the equatorial regions previously seen. Upon arriving in the region in which the game was played, the tribes were given a chance to enjoy a local ceremony.

In addition, Tribal Council was held in a pagoda specially-designed for the show in the Chinese hillsides. Zhelin Reservoir, the filming location for this season, is in Jiangxi province near the city of Jiujiang.

Although teams resided in camps near the reservoir, they were able to visit a number of famous sites including the Shaolin Monastery and the Great Wall.
6. The sixteenth season of the show, "Survivor: Fans Vs. Favorites", brought teams back to another previously-seen locale. Although the location was deemed Micronesia, teams were actually in which specific location?

Answer: Palau

Palau had previously been used in season ten, "Survivor: Palau", where it was deemed the first season to not have a merge (due to the dissolution of one of the tribes). Due to great filming conditions the first time around (Probst called it his favourite shooting location), season sixteen made its return to Koror on the original beaches used in the earlier season. Exile Island was hosted in a gorgeous cove; here, players could search for a Hidden Immunity Idol, but only until the tide rose too high. None of the castaways from the show's previous adventure to Palau returned for this season.
7. Deemed 'Earth's Last Eden', the seventeenth season of "Survivor" was held in Wonga-Wongue Presidential Reserve in what African nation?

Answer: Gabon

Producers picked this African destination (the first on the continent since season three) to highlight the natural beauty in high definition; this was the first season to switch to this format. This time, teams resided in small encampments on the water, framed around derelict camps of the past. Exile Island was held in a small lagoon in a solitary hut; those who traveled there had the option to receive clues to the Hidden Immunity Idol or food (the ultimate temptation in 'Earth's Last Eden'). Because she was sent there so often, Sugar deemed the location 'The Sugar Shack'.

This season also featured several visits from the local wildlife; in some episodes, the tribes had close encounters with elephants and the like right outside their camps.
8. Season eighteen of "Survivor" brought teams to the Brazilian Highlands, specifically in which Brazilian state?

Answer: Tocantins

Driven into the hot, humid highlands of north-central Brazil, the castaways this time were forced to brave a very unique landscape in Jalapão State Park, known for extensive plateaus, red sand dunes, and waterfalls. This time around, Exile Island was actually a large sand dune overlooking the area. Camps were built in relatively open thickets surrounded by near-endless expanses of land; all of them were situated on watering holes, however, so camps came equipped with beaches.

The last season to be shot in Brazil was season six in the Amazon.
9. Season nineteen, "Suvivor: Samoa", was actually filmed on what island?

Answer: Upolu

Upolu, one of the largest islands in Samoa (next to the island of Savai'i), played host to this particular season of rainy days and hot streaks. Teams' camps were set on long beaches, nestled into lush forests. Notably, Russell Hantz was able to find several Hidden Immunity Idols in the jungles nearby. Because the season was filmed on a Pacific Island, most of the challenges were water-themed with a few notable exceptions.

After several seasons featuring the Exile Island mechanic, "Samoa" was the first in a while to drop it from the show.
10. Season twenty marked the return of ten heroes and ten villains from the past years of "Survivor". Which country, also previously seen, was the setting for this landmark season?

Answer: Samoa

Filmed only a few weeks apart, "Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains" sent teams back to the island of Upolu in Samoa to take part in another thirty-nine days of treachery and adventure; castaways stretched all the way back to season two. All of the challenges this season were designed based on challenges used in earlier seasons, so there was a mixture between water and land-based games. Once again, tribes set up their beaches along the water; in some cases this resulted in poor shelter, especially for the villains (at which point Jerri still claimed she'd lived in the worst shelter in "Pearl Islands"--- she was right).
