Survivor: Fiji is the fourteenth season of CBS reality television series Survivor.
Applications were due June 16, 2006. In late July and early August, about 800 applicants were selected for an interview by CBS. Out of those 800, about 48 semi-finalists were selected to go to Los Angeles in September.
Survivor: Fiji started with 19 players. For the first two days, there were no tribes, similar to Survivor: Palau, and they were instructed to construct a well-off camp from given materials. During the third day, two tribes were formed.
The losing team of the immunity challenge had to move to a different camp site with nothing but a machete and a cooking pot, while the winning tribe returned to the luxurious camp.
Exile Island is also in play for Survivor: Fiji. However, unlike previous seasons, the hidden idol is not present on the island, though clues to its location are given to those that are exiled.
The premiere of this season of Survivor, entitled "Something Cruel Is About to Happen... Real Soon," aired on February 8, 2007.
