Survivor: One World is the twenty-fourth season of the American CBS competitive reality television series Survivor. The season was filmed from August 1 through September 8, 2011 and premiered on February 15, 2012. Applications were due in January 11, 2011, approximately 800 applicants visited in various states, from there 18 contestants were chosen to participate. The season was filmed in the vicinity of Upolu, Samoa, which is the same filming location used for seasons 19, 20, and 23.
The two tribes were initially divided by gender, which was previously done in three other seasons. Two significant new twists debuted this season. Unlike previous seasons where tribes lived at separate camp sites, the two tribes began living on the same campsite together. While the concept of all the castaways living at the same camp prior to the merge also appeared in other seasons, this is the first time it was employed at the beginning of the game and continued beyond the first tribal challenge. Following the tribal swap on Day 12, both the gender-divided tribes and the "One World" twist were dissolved. The second twist involved the hidden immunity idols. There were three idols hidden, two were designated for a specific tribe. If a castaway found an idol designated for his or her tribe, the castaway could keep and use it; If a castaway found an idol designated for the opposing tribe, he or she was required to give it to a member of the other tribe before the next tribal council. Two challenges were conducted without Jeff Probst's supervision during the game, as was previously done once in Survivor: Samoa.
Notable cast members include Leif Manson (the first little person to compete on Survivor) and Monica Culpepper (wife of former NFL football player Brad Culpepper). Kim Spradlin was named the winner in the final episode on May 13, 2012, defeating Sabrina Thompson and Chelsea Meissner in a 7–2–0 vote. In addition, Spradlin won $100,000 as the "Sprint Player of the Season", earning the fans' vote over runners-up Chelsea Meissner, Greg "Tarzan" Smith and Troy "Troyzan" Robertson.
Kat Edorsson, Colton Cumbie, and Monica Culpepper returned for Survivor: Blood vs. Water. Edorsson returned with her boyfriend, Hayden Moss, Cumbie returned with his fiancé, Caleb Bankston, and Culpepper returned with her husband, Brad. Cumbie quit the game and finished in 19th place. Edorrsson came in 14th, while Culpepper made it to the final tribal council, coming in 2nd.

The 18 castaways were split into gender-based tribes and given maps to their camps, unaware they would lead to the same location. Despite living on the same beach, the tribes would remain split, building separate shelters and fending for their own tribe.
The men's tribe, Manono, dominated the first few challenges, particularly after an injury took Kourtney out of the game for the women's tribe, Salani. On Salani, a strong five-person alliance was formed between Alicia, Chelsea, Kat, Kim and Sabrina, who were able to control the votes on their tribe. Despite a strong start, the men found difficulty with Colton, an outspoken member of the tribe who was initially an outsider, often interacting with Salani instead. After Sabrina accidentally found Manono's hidden immunity idol, she gave it to Colton, who used his newfound power to overthrow Manono's dominant alliance and gain control of the tribe. After a tribe swap, Colton found himself again in a position of power on the new Manono tribe; however, he was medically evacuated from the game after being diagnosed with acute appendicitis. Meanwhile, on the new Salani tribe, Kim and Chelsea formed a second alliance with Jay and Troyzan as a backup plan in case their original alliance failed.
Though the sexes entered the merge with equal numbers, the women rallied together and decided to form a voting bloc. Since Colton's removal left the men without a leader, Jay and Troyzan chose to align with the women, voting out two of the men. With a clear majority, the women decided to sever ties with Jay and Troyzan, voting them out despite Troyzan's pleas to Kat and Christina, who were at the bottom of the women's alliance. Tarzan was left the last man remaining; however, Kat's unpredictability and youthful naivety was enough to convince Kim that keeping Kat around may be a bad idea, blindsiding Kat in a unanimous vote. With only six players remaining, Kim found herself caught between her initial alliance of Chelsea and Sabrina, and the alliance of Alicia, Christina and Tarzan. Although Alicia wanted to vote Chelsea out, Kim convinced Alicia that Tarzan was planning to betray her, leading to Tarzan's elimination. Alicia and Christina were subsequently voted out by Kim, Chelsea and Sabrina.
The jury castigated Chelsea for acting as Kim's main pawn and lack of social play, and while they praised Sabrina for her social game, she was berated for her poor challenge performance and being lazy at camp. The jury blamed Kim for all of their eliminations, with Kim taking responsibility for every blindside. Kim won by a vote of 7–2–0.

|On Day 1, the eighteen castaways arrived on a truck at a beach. Jeff divided the tribes into men, Manono, versus women, Salani, and then told the tribes that they had sixty seconds to strip everything of value from the truck. While the women of Salani were busy gathering goods, Michael stole several of their assembled supplies. After the scramble for supplies was done, Jeff tossed the two tribes a map to their camps and the tribes headed off in different directions.
During Salani's trek through the jungle, Alicia formed an alliance with Chelsea, Kat, Kim, and Sabrina. The women arrived first and discovered the two tribes were camping on the same beach. Later the first day, Matt warned Colton that either he could use his "women" connection to advance the Manono tribe or find himself the odd man out and be one of the first to be voted out. Matt also formed an alliance with Bill, Jay, and Michael. After Jay got Manono's fire started, the women tried to negotiate with the men for fire, but their efforts failed. Late that night, Monica and Christina crept into Manono's camp and stole an ember to start a fire, but the fire died out by morning.
On Day 2, Christina brokered a deal with the men for fire in exchange for weaving twenty palm fronds for the men. While Alicia agreed to the deal, Christina's bargaining upset her and she vowed to vote out Christina first. Sabrina found a Hidden Immunity Idol intended for the Manono tribe. Before the next Tribal Council, Sabrina gave the idol to Colton, telling him to make a big move in the game.
At the combined Reward/Immunity Challenge, Kourtney injured her wrist while landing in the net during the tower jump. When Jeff noticed that Kourtney was kneeling and in obvious pain while waiting her turn on the balance beam, he called a stop to the challenge to tend to Kourtney. The Survivor Medical Team determined that she had a possible broken wrist and pulled her from the challenge to get an X-ray for further diagnosis. Jeff told the tribes that since the challenge requires nine castaways to start and finish, Manono wins by default. However, he gave the men the option to continue the challenge with a nine versus eight competition as a gesture of goodwill. The men declined and took the Tribal Immunity, much to the disappointment of the women.That night, at Tribal Council, a vicious argument broke out between Alicia and Christina over the deal made over the fire and palm frond mats. Jeff told the women that Kourtney suffered multiple fractures of her wrist that would require surgery, she was medically removed from the game, and they would not have to vote anybody out. They received flint.

|When Alicia and Christina returned to camp after Tribal Council, the two tried to clear their mutual animosity. Alicia still did not care for Christina but she focused on Nina to be voted out next as her alliance needed Christina to win challenges. On the morning of Day 4, Sabrina was appointed the leader of the tribe. The day's tree mail had two large crates for the tribes and instructions to take them to a neutral location where they were to be opened. The tribes opened the instruction package and it told them that this would be the first do-it-yourself Reward Challenge. Bill read the challenge rules and the tribes began.
The challenge was closely fought with Manono pulling out the win. Afterward, the men worked on improving their camp but Colton hung out with Salani. The women shooed Colton away to have a women-only meeting. He returned later to tell them he felt alone in the game and that he wanted to spend as much time with the women as he could. The women told him that was not an option for strategic reasons. Later that night, Colton told Jonas, Leif, Tarzan, and Troyzan that he was going to play the Hidden Immunity Idol at the next Tribal Council and that they could blindside Matt or Michael. Colton decided to go along with this "misfit alliance" until he could join up with the women.

|With a massive storm heading in, Colton and Jonas stopped by the women's camp the night after Tribal Council to see if the women wanted to stay in the men's shelter. However, the women decided to tough it out and got pounded throughout the night by the storm. The next morning, the women went over to the men's camp to warm up.
At a rainy Reward Challenge, Sabrina defeated Matt, Monica defeated Colton, Alicia defeated Jay, Kat defeated Troyzan after seven tries, and Christina defeated Bill to sweep the challenge for Salani. As a second storm rolled into the campsites, several of the women went to the men's camp to get fire and shelter, which annoyed the men. When the men asked for the use of the canoe in return for fire and shelter, the women declined to agree to any deal.
|4||"Bum-Puzzled"||6.3/10||3.2/9||March 7, 2012||10.78||#12|
|When Manono returned to camp, Tarzan and Troyzan celebrated their blindside of Matt and agreed to target Bill next. On day 9, Jonas and Troyzan asked to use the women's net to fish in exchange for half the catch, but were rebuffed.
The Reward Challenge was won by Salani and they selected the tarp as their reward. Back at camp, Leif told Bill that Colton wanted to vote Bill out at the last Tribal Council. When Michael told Colton that he saw Bill and Leif having a conversation, Colton confronted Leif about what he told Bill. After Leif admitted that he told Bill about being targeted, Colton told Leif that he picked the wrong side and that his fate in the game was sealed. Leif knew that he lost the trust of his alliance and had to regain their trust.
|5||"A Bunch of Idiots"||6.2/11||3.0/9||March 14, 2012||10.56||#11|
|When the tribes arrived for the Reward Challenge, Jeff shocked the castaways by announcing a tribe redistribution. The new tribes would be selected by the castaways smashing an egg against their bodies which would reveal their new tribe's color. After all of the eggs were smashed, the new Manono consisted of Alicia, Christina, Colton, Jonas, Leif, Monica, and Tarzan while the new Salani was Chelsea, Jay, Kat, Kim, Michael, Sabrina, and Troyzan.
The new Salani then went on to win a closely fought challenge. Jeff tossed Manono a map to their new campsite and they headed out. At the new Manono camp, Colton and Alicia were disappointed at their new tribes members. Colton promised the girls he was with them, but also told Jonas that he was with the men all the way. Colton told Alicia that he wanted to vote out Christina next, which made her suspicious of his true loyalties. Alicia was fine with one of the women being voted out next as long as it was not her. Later, Colton changed his mind and wanted to target Monica. At the Salani campsite, Jay and Troyzan formed an alliance with Kim. On day 14, Kim went looking for the Hidden Immunity Idol and found it. She told Chelsea about her find and they plotted their next moves in the game.
|6||"Thanks for the Souvenir"||6.2/10||2.8/9||March 21, 2012||10.47||#15|
|When Manono returned to camp, Alicia and Colton gloated at Christina over their blindside of Monica; telling Christina that she had no chance of any alliances in the game and that she was going to be voted off next ahead of any other castaway.
|7||"The Beauty in a Merge"||5.9/10||2.9/9||March 28, 2012||9.99||#19|
|When the newly merged tribe returned to camp from Tribal Council, the merger feast was waiting for them. The next morning, the castaways decided upon the tribe name of Tikiano. Tarzan approached Michael about reforming the original male Manono alliance along with Alicia. Michael told Tarzan that he was in, but in reality he was not as he wanted to stick with the post-switch Salani tribal alliance.
For the Reward Challenge, the castaways were split into the orange team of Alicia, Chelsea, Christina, Jay, Sabrina, and Troyzan versus the blue team of Jonas, Kat, Kim, Leif, Michael, and Tarzan. Leif started off first for the blue team and struggled under the log, giving the orange team a huge lead. However, the lead was squandered when Sabrina was slow retrieving the fourth bag of pieces and Michael was able to catch up. The challenge came down to the puzzle assembly stage where Christina and Troyzan faced off against Jonas and Tarzan. Momentum swung back and forth between the two pairs, but Christina and Troyzan managed to pull off the win. After the winning six enjoyed their feast, they read the secret note, which said that there was another Hidden Immunity Idol hidden back at camp. The six agreed to keep the note secret between themselves. Back at camp, Michael told Jonas about Tarzan's plan to reform the original Manono alliance, which was news to Jonas. Jonas confronted Tarzan about it and the two had a vocal argument. Tarzan declared he was dropping his alliance with Jonas and he was dropping out of the tribe. Troyzan woke up early on day 19 to go searching for the new Hidden Immunity Idol and found it.
|8||"Just Annihilate Them"||6.1/10||2.8/9||April 4, 2012||10.36||#18|
|Jay and Troyzan were concerned that their choice to align with the post-switch Salani alliance was going to backfire on them should all of the women align together against the men. They agreed that one of the women had to be voted out next.
At the Reward Challenge, the tribe divided into teams by schoolyard pick of Alicia, Chelsea, Kat, Jay, and Troyzan versus Christina, Kim, Leif, Michael, and Sabrina. Tarzan was not picked and sat out the challenge. The challenge was closely fought with the team of Christina, Kim, Leif, Michael, and Sabrina taking the win. During their reward trip, Kim and Sabrina agreed that their alliance with Chelsea could control the game with the other three women by voting out Michael. They would deceive Troyzan into thinking Michael was voting him out. Back at camp, the losing team also talked about whom to vote out next. Troyzan suggested Christina and Jay agreed, while Kat suggested Michael. This made Jay and Troyzan more nervous about an all women alliance. The next day, Tarzan annoyed several members of the tribe when they thought he took a piece of their shelter to use as firewood. Tarzan took Chelsea aside to ask her if she was biased against him because he was a plastic surgeon and she was unhappy with her breast implants. This made Chelsea want to vote out Tarzan as soon as possible, but she knew that the better strategy was to vote out the bigger threats and she thought Tarzan was not a threat. Kim put the plan she agreed upon with Sabrina into effect by telling Troyzan that Michael said Troyzan was a threat to win the game and that he needed to be voted out. Troyzan bought the story and agreed to vote out Michael.
|9||"Go Out With a Bang"||6.0/10||2.7/8||April 11, 2012||9.91||#17|
|*Reward Challenge: The tribe would be split into two teams to play a variation of ladder toss with five rungs. Each castaway would throw the bola once to attempt to score for their team. The team with the highest score would win a boat trip to a secluded island to enjoy a local barbecue.
Day 23's treemail announced the second do-it-yourself Reward Challenge. The tribe drew rocks to divide into teams of Alicia, Jay, Kat, Tarzan, and Troyzan versus Chelsea, Christina, Kim, Leif, and Sabrina. The team of Alicia, Jay, Kat, Tarzan, and Troyzan won the challenge after Kat and Tarzan scored a combined six points while Christina was the only one to score a single point for her team. While on their reward trip, Jay told Kat that the post-switch Salani alliance had to stick together and vote out Alicia, Christina, Leif, and Tarzan, but Jay was still suspicious that the women were going to eliminate the men first. The next day, Alicia, Chelsea, Kat, Kim, and Sabrina agreed that Jay or Troyzan would be voted out next. However, Chelsea was apprehensive about the plan as she had told both Jay and Troyzan that they could trust her. This upset Alicia, Kat, and Sabrina as they thought Chelsea should not have made any agreement with the men. Meanwhile, Jay and Troyzan agreed that one of the women of the post-switch Manono had to be voted out. Jay then talked to Chelsea, Kat, Kim, and Sabrina and got them to agree to vote out Alicia. However, the four girls lied to Jay and Kim told Alicia that she was safe. Jay trusted the four girls' promise, but Troyzan was suspicious.
|10||"I'm No Dummy"||6.0/9||2.8/9||April 18, 2012||9.96||#14|
|After the betrayal at Tribal Council, Troyzan decided that he was going to play the rest of the game with the attitude of him versus everybody else.
Day 26's treemail had envelopes with $500 in cash for a Survivor Auction. Money and items won could not be shared. Alicia spent $500 for a letter from home (from her dad), which she read out loud to the tribe. With the price fixed at $500, Jeff offered the other castaways their letters. Tarzan bought his and decided to keep the letter private. Troyzan was tempted to buy his letter from home, but felt that he had to play the rest of the game on his own. While Christina had enough money to buy her letter, she did not. The others could not afford their letters as they had bought an item earlier in the auction. Egged on by the others, Christina got into a bidding war with Troyzan over the advantage at the next Immunity Challenge. After Troyzan won the item, Sabrina commented that he would still be voted off next. Troyzan told the tribe that he felt that the bidding was another sign that the game had turned into the rest of the tribe versus him. Kat broke the tension by telling Jeff that she still had money left and urging him to continue the auction. The last item for bid, a mystery item, was bought by Kat for $160. The note stated that she had bought the cake for the entire tribe and that they had 60 seconds to eat it. When Troyzan got back to camp, he went off hunting for a new Hidden Immunity Idol without any regard for the others noticing. Not finding an Idol, Troyzan decided to feign that he found it.
|11||"Never Say Die"||5.9/10||2.7/8||April 25, 2012||9.81||#14|
|When the tribe got back to camp, Tarzan decided to align himself to the women so that they would vote out Troyzan first.
At the Reward Challenge, Troyzan went out first, followed by Tarzan, Chelsea, Kat, Sabrina, and Christina. The challenge came down to Alicia and Kim, with Kim taking the win. Jeff then asked Kim to pick one person to join her and she picked Alicia. Jeff then told her that she had one more person to take and she chose Chelsea, which upset Kat, as Kat and Kim had promised to choose each other. Troyzan used Kim's choices to tell Christina, Kat, and Sabrina that it shows exactly where they stood within the women's alliance. While the three were on their reward, they decided that they had to do some damage control when they returned. Meanwhile, back at camp, Troyzan focused on getting Kat to realize that she should feel slighted for not being taken on the reward. Sabrina tried to calm Kat down and get information on how loyal Christina would be to the women's alliance. When the three women got back from the reward, Kim tried to patch things up with Kat.
|12||"It's Gonna Be Chaos"||5.7/10||2.6/8||May 2, 2012||9.43||#21|
|*Reward Challenge: The castaways and their loved ones would be tethered together and attached to one end of a thick rope. The thick rope has other ropes woven around it and several poles. The castaways and loved ones would have to untangle the ropes to allow them to progress along the thick rope. The first castaway and loved one to reach the end of the thick rope would win the castaway and their loved one would go on a picnic.
Day 31's treemail was a Sprint HTC Evo 3D containing videos from the castaways' loved ones: Sabrina's brother Tony, Alicia's sister Leticia, Chelsea's dad Ken, Christina's dad Sung, Kim's sister Beth, Kat's cousin Robby, and Tarzan's wife Terri. When the castaways arrived at the Reward Challenge site, Jeff brought out their loved ones for a reunion. Jeff then went over the challenge rules. Kat and Robby just barely beat out Kim and Beth in the challenge. Jeff told Kat to pick one other pair to join them on the picnic and she selected Kim and Beth. Kat was then told to pick another pair and she picked Alicia and Leticia. Kat explained that she picked Kim and Alicia because she wanted to spend time together as friends. Chelsea, Kim, and Sabrina thought it was a mistake that Kat did not pick Christina and Tarzan on the picnic. While on the reward, Kim considered bringing Alicia and Kat to the final three. Alicia and Kat wanted to vote out Sabrina ahead of Christina, but Kim was unsure if she could vote against Sabrina. Back at camp, Sabrina was very upset at Kat's choices and brought up the idea of voting out Kat. Chelsea agreed with Sabrina and asked Tarzan about what he thought of voting out Kat. Two days later, Chelsea and Kim agreed to vote out Sabrina next instead of Kat.

|When the tribe returned to camp, Tarzan tried to secure himself a spot in the final four by talking to Kim about voting out Chelsea and Sabrina next. He offered himself as the final jury member and told Kim that he could persuade the rest of the jury to vote for her. Kim agreed that taking Alicia and Christina to the final three was her best option, but was not sure she could vote out Chelsea. When Alicia joined the conversation, the two told her the same plan. However, when Kim walked away, Tarzan told Alicia that he would persuade the jury to vote for her over Kim. The next day, Chelsea thought Alicia, Christina, and Tarzan were in an alliance to the final three. She tried to convince Christina that Tarzan could not go to the final three as all of the men of the jury would vote for Tarzan. Christina told Alicia, Kim, and Tarzan about her conversation with Chelsea. Kim was concerned that Chelsea had blown her double dealing with the trio of Alicia, Christina, and Tarzan and the pair of Chelsea and Sabrina. Kim told Chelsea about what Christina had done, which upset Chelsea. Kim told Chelsea that the game was now Chelsea, Kim, and Sabrina versus Alicia, Christina, and Tarzan.
The Reward Challenge was won by Chelsea. Chelsea went back on her promise to Christina and instead took Sabrina and Kim on the reward. While the three were on reward, Alicia and Christina were upset about Chelsea's choices and wanted to vote out Chelsea if she did not win Individual Immunity. Tarzan told Alicia and Christina that Kim and Chelsea were deceiving them and that they should take him to the final three. Alicia wanted to hear what Kim would say after she returned from the reward. The next day, Alicia and Kim talked and they discovered that Tarzan had told them both the same story about swaying the jury votes in their favor. They agreed that they couldn't let Tarzan play both sides or they would look like morons. The two told Christina about Tarzan's plotting.
|14||"Perception is Not Always Reality"||5.8/10||2.9/8||May 13, 2012||10.34||#20|
|*Immunity Challenge: The castaways would begin by untying a series of knots that would open a gate. The castaways would then cross a balance beam maze. At the end of the maze, the castaways would bounce along a cargo net to retrieve five puzzle piece bags. Once all five bags were retrieved, the castaways would use the pieces to solve a puzzle that would give them three clues to the numbers of a combination lock. The castaways would then climb a tower to solve the combination lock which would raise a flag. The first castaway to raise their flag would win.
Kim and Sabrina talked about considering voting out Chelsea and taking Christina to the final three. At the Immunity Challenge, Kim came from behind during the puzzle stage to win her third Individual Immunity. Chelsea told Kim that she wanted to vote out Alicia and take Sabrina to the final three. Kim was not sure if she would vote out Chelsea or Alicia. Kim told Sabrina that she wanted to vote out Alicia. Kim then told Alicia and Christina that she was going to vote out Chelsea. At Tribal Council, the women made their pitch to Kim to align with her side. When the vote came, Kim's true allegiance came out and she voted Alicia to the jury by a vote of 3–2.
When the women returned to camp, Kim apologized to Christina for lying to her for so long. Day 38's treemail instructed the final four to take the traditional journey honoring the castaways voted out before heading to the final Immunity Challenge. Kim beat out Christina for the final Individual Immunity. Back at camp, Christina accepted her fate to being voted out and did not try to convince Kim take her to the final three. Kim was still unsure if she should take Christina or Sabrina to the final three. At Tribal Council, Jeff tried to get Christina to make a pitch to stay in the game, but she refused to make much of an effort. Her fate was sealed and she became the last member of the jury.Chelsea, Kim, and Sabrina enjoyed the traditional day 39 breakfast. At the final Tribal Council, the jury made their statements to the three and questioned the three about their game play. Chelsea was lambasted as being anti-social and was seen as one of Kim's pawns, Sabrina's game was questioned about her quiet gameplay and her weak performances in immunity challenges, while Kim was criticized for making too many direct blindsides and betraying several people in the game. The majority of the jury rewarded Kim by voting for her as the Sole Survivor over Sabrina and Chelsea.

|The castaways return to discuss the season with host, Jeff Probst.|
Survivor columnist Dalton Ross of Entertainment Weekly gave this season a negative review. He called the cast, "thoroughly uninspiring" and went on to say that, "Colton was more a horrible human being than a classic villain, and the rest of the players were mostly either completely forgettable or people you wish you could forget." Jeff Probst felt this season was a "bit of a letdown."
