Chronology
Previous season Survivor: New Zealand
Next season Survivor: Germany

Survivor: Aruba is the fifth season of Janelle's Survivor Series, which began on May 30, 2013.

The season featured 16 castaways. For the first time in the series the "Back to Basics" format was introduced, meaning the whole season there were no twists or tribal swaps, just 16 contestants playing the game of Survivor.

There were two tribes: Bataya, wearing cyan-blue colored buffs, and Madiki, wearing pale-orange type colored buffs. Bataya translated in Papiamentu as "Battle". Papiamento is the main language of Arubans as well as Dutch. Madiki was named after Madiki, Aruba, a village which sits upon the west coast of the island. The name also comes from the Latin word Madilicka which means "small majestic land". On Day 6, the tribes merged and became Arashi, the name being chosen by LeQuisha named after a beach in Aruba. The merged tribe wore lime-green colored buffs.

In the end, LeQuisha was crowned the winner over Rafael in a 5-2 vote.

TriviaEdit

  • Survivor: Aruba was the first season not to include any twists. This format was known as "Back to Basics".
  • This was the first season since Survivor: Cayman Islands to have sixteen contestants.
  • This was the first time that both tribes volunteered to go to Tribal Council, and the second time there has been a Double Tribal. (Survivor: Tanzania)
  • For the second time in the show's running, a contestant had chosen to leave the show off their own back. DJ previously quit the show in Survivor: Tanzania.
    • This is the first time however, someone has opted to leaving just before the votes were revealed, meaning that any votes were voided and the person with the most votes remained in the game.
  • This is the first time a tie has occurred in three seasons, since Survivor: Cayman Islands.
  • For the first time, there were no winners of an Individual Immunity Necklace, due to challengers being unable to finish the challenge. This meant that nobody went to Tribal Council with safety.
  • Like Tanzaniathe final two for this season (LeQuisha and Rafael) were highly criticized.

Returning castawaysEdit

Conor, JG, and Oliver returned in Survivor: All-Stars; and Shawn returned in Survivor: Pros vs. Joes.
