Janelle's Survivor Series is a Tengaged group game based on the American version of the Survivor reality game show. The series first premiered on March 13, 2013, on the main Tengaged website, where it was hosted by entrepreneur and co-creator Janelle Pierzina. From Maldives to All-Stars, Pierzina co-hosted the show alongside co-creator and original Big Brother and The Voice host BigBruv. BigBruv stepped down as co-host and Executive Producer before the ninth series began.

After the conclusion of the ninth series on August 25, 2013, Pierzina revealed that after a five-month airing, the show will be put on hiatus until further notice. After a further five months, it was confirmed by Pierzina that the show would return with the tenth season, due to begin on February 5, 2014, however BigBruv wasn't due to make any plans on returning alongside him. Instead, it was revealed that Platinum Big Brother host, and Guadeloupe runner-up Lauren-Jade will instead co-host the season, the latter of whom left the show after the season ended.

Format and rules Edit

The show maroons around a group of 16 or more strangers divided into two or three tribes in a hot environment where they must compete in challenges to earn a reward or immunity from being eliminated from the game at Tribal Council. Medical conditions such as injuries due to bans or deciding not to continue because of infections may have contestants eliminated other than by vote. The final two or three players remaining in the game face a jury of anywhere from seven to nine players who decide who the worthy winner must be. The player with the most votes earns the title of Sole Survivor and a gift prize.

Janelle's Survivor began on March 13, 2013 with it's first season, Survivor: Maldives. The series was received well by the public, which lead to it becoming a large success with a total of nine seasons being aired as of August, 2013.

Survivor: All-Stars was originally the sixth season. However, it was moved to the eighth season in order to give a more open range of All-Stars and to fit in with the 'summer vacation' period.

After the broadcast of the ninth season, Pierzina revealed that Janelle's Survivor was taking a break. After a six month hiatus, the show returned with a tenth and an eleventh season on February 5, 2014, taking another hiatus so Pierzina could focus on other work.
