First Survivor starts again tonight on OLN

Ten seasons and 160 episodes of Survivor return to television starting tonight, as OLN begins to air repeats of the original season. It debuts tonight at 11 p.m. ET, following the conclusion of the Tour de France.

In addition to airing full seasons in chronological order, OLN says it plans to “package the programs according to various themes like ‘Most Villainous Characters’ and ‘Biggest Twists.’”

Tonight, watch as the first cast is marooned on Palau Tiga, an obnoxious fat man sits in a tree instead of working, and someone pays the price for failing during the immunity challenge. From alliances to voting patterns, it all started here.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
