Survivor - 'Season 17: Gabon' and 'Season 18: Tocantins' are Coming to MOD!

DVD releases in-the-works for 'Earth's Last Eden' and 'The Brazilian Highlands'

Posted by David Lambert
    Overwhelming hunger puts alliances in jeopardy as large appetites combined with dwindling rations create an immediate air of resentment at one camp. After a power-drunk castaway decides to take the game into his own hands, the tribes endure a challenge that comes down to a nail-biting showdown. Good and evil are truly on full-display, as one castaway attempts to use guilt to gain control of an ally, while another makes a lifetime commitment in a surprisingly intimate gesture. Will the group of deceitful castaways outlast those who play from their heart or will the forces of good prevail? Will temptations interfere with logical decision-making? Most importantly, who will survive?

    In a strange coincidence, good vs. evil emerges as a major theme this season in Earth's Last Eden - the seventeenth season of Survivor. "I think the audience will quickly identify with one group or the other," host Jeff Probst teases. Shocking tribal councils, crafty use of immunity-idols, and sudden ends to powerful alliances will leave you on the edge of your seat. Find out whether good guys really do finish last in SURVIVOR: GABON on DVD.

    Then, Survivor: Tocantins features an exotic location that proves to be one of the most rugged locations ever visited. 16 castaways find themselves stranded in the sweltering interior of Brazil for 39 days, with only the Rio Novo River oasis available to them as a sanctuary. Divided into the Jalapao Tribe and Timbira Tribe, the castaways are a diverse group: a school principal; a former pop star; an entrepreneur; an army sergeant; a self-proclaimed "dragon slayer"; and future Blood vs. Water castaway, Tyson.

    Based on first impressions, a vote is held, and one person from each tribe is chosen to remain behind, not continuing with their group. Will this mean the end for these two castaways or will they get a second chance to make a first impression? Castaways use different tactics: one castaway wants to change the game with the strongest surviving, while another castaway wears her heart on her sleeve and tries an honest approach to the game, landing her in hot water with everyone. Empty stomachs, unprecedented inter-tribal alliances, shocking betrayals, and tricky challenges put the castaways brains and brawn to the test as they fight to win the $1 million grand prize. Watch it all unfold with Survivor: Tocantins on DVD!
