Survivor: The Gilded Isles is the third season of Vanilla's Survivor series. Following Survivor: The Fijian Islands, this is the second season to feature returning players. This is also the first season to feature twenty players, the largest cast size to date. Lily was crowned the Sole Survivor, winning in a 4-3-3 vote against Brittney and Paula. At the reunion, Georgia was honored with the Player of the Season award.


Survivor: The Gilded Isles began with twenty castaways. They were initially divided into two tribes: Sambava (in red) and Aracaju (in turquoise). In Episode 5, the two tribes were further expanded into three tribes, with the new Nazaru (green) added. In Episode 8, the tribes merged into the Ikongo tribe and wore gold.


Expanded Tribes: In Episode 5, the remaining 16 contestants were swapped from two tribes into three tribes. The new Nazaru tribe was added, consisting of 6 contestants. The switched Aracaju and Sambava tribes both consisted of 5 contestants each.

Early Merge: In Episode 8, the three tribes merged into one with 13 contestants still in the game. This is the first season to not merge at 12. This is also the first season to merge from three tribes into one rather than two into one.
