God Among Mortals. On this twist 2 celebrities will live with the castaways for 30 days. It will be based from the legends where Gods lived with the Mortals.  These "gods" are not players. They cannot be voted off and they wont win the game. They are automatic Jury members though. Each tribe will have their own "God" 

The Gods will be trainwreck drama people who sucks at challenges.  They will leave the game at day 30. The person who built the best relationship with them will gain an advantage once they left the game they will join the jury.

whoops, I made my own thread. I didn't know this thread exists.

Anyway, my idea:

ALL-MALE or ALL-FEMALE season

I'm surprised they havent done this twist.

If it’s 20 contestants, can you imagine at the premiere episode they put 10 guys on a boat, and another 10 in another boat from different direction. They all would think it’s battle of the sexes and couldn’t wait to meet what they thought 10 female competitors

People voted out during the pre-merge phase select one person on their tribe to give an immunity necklace to if that tribe were to lose again in the next episode. They decide when giving their final thoughts (like the legacy advantage) and the tribe is notified next morning with treemail who gets the necklace if they lose the upcoming challenge.

If that tribe wins the next challenge or if there is a tribe swap then the immunity necklace would be voided, (to avoid having it be too powerful of a twist). Therefore, it's only potentially useful in saving someone in the minority if a pre-merge tribe loses back-to-back challenges.

It would be an annoying twist to have to work around for early game majorities, but not so OP that it totally screws them over, because majorities would just have to be socially smart ensuring that they have at least one member who hasn't burned their bridge with the person going home, so that they don't give the immunity necklace to the next person on the chopping block.

Or alternatively have whoever gets eliminated select who to get the idol clue, but if one tribe never went to tribal council they wouldn't have a chance to get the idol clue at all, (so maybe a good way to keep balance, though tbh I don't think a tribe should be punished for winning by never having access to clues)

Also, they're absolutely running out of tribe division ideas and tbh should just go back to regular tribe divisions with no specific twists, but here's the best I could come up with. 

Ethos vs Pathos vs Logos

People who use their EXPERIENCE in life and in their careers to get ahead (Ethos)
People who use their aptitude with people and EMOTIONS to get ahead (Pathos)
People who use LOGIC to get ahead (Logic)

The Ethos tribe would have doctors, military people, political leaders, and experts in certain fields.

The Pathos tribe would have your community leaders, teachers, social workers, etc. 

The Logos tribe would have the scientists, lawyers, analysts, etc. 

It's not perfect and is a variation of the Collars / Brains vs Brawn vs Beauty / Heroes vs Healers vs Hustlers era of tribe divisions based off of lifestyle/career, but they don't have very many variations left to call it.

They did a non-returnee Blood vs. Water, now its time for a non-returnee Heroes vs. Villains. Heroes would obviously be cops, war veterans, they could include "sports heroes" People everybody look up too (firefighters). People who do good deeds (There is a guy in California named Mike Cheng, who goes oversees to rescue dogs from dog meat farms). Hell, I'd love to see Phoenix Jones (a man who literally dressed up in superhero garb and "fought crime") be a contestant.

Villains could be former mafioso's who ratted out their friends, they are a dime a dozen. Former people from prison who got their lives together a la Vytas (for safety sake, of course). Then also people who work occupations that are frowned upon or taboo (porn stars, strippers, casino owers, etc)

idk, if they could do another returnee season of HvV that didnt feel like the younger brother to the first one.

That would be feasible if they hadn't already blown their wad with HvHvH

Survivor: Hard Knocks...

20 contestants return for another chance.

These contestants have the following in common:
1.  They didn't win the previous time(s) they played.
2.  They endured what many would consider "hard knocks" the previous time(s) they played. 

Things that could be considered a "hard knock" include:
1.  Voted out first.
2.  Voted out due to an unfair twist or a mistake by production.
3.  Voted out with a "big-time" blindside..
4.  Removed from the game due to injury or an outside-of-the-game event.
5.  Voted out due to very dumb game-play.
6.  Making the final 3, but not winning due to a very bitter jury.

Vengeful reunion

Make a Whole non returnee season play again. From 1st boot to winner.

I will call this scenario Ulong's revenge

Ulong and Koror will compete against each other again. Since Jenn died and Willard wont be able to compete Anymore, They will be replaced by Wanda and Jonathan. 

This scenario is interesting because it will question you if the alliances will remain the same.

Something along these lines is most sensible, especially after seasons themed around mistakes, 'game changers' and people medically evacuated being brought back. 

They could go the route of a sort of second chance type season and bring back only people that that played once (Silas - first person screwed from a tribe swap switch, Devon - F4 fire challenge twist, Jessica Lewis - purple rock etc.) - there are definitely 20 people throughout 37 seasons who have had a situation that seemed rough and outside the 'norm'. 

Or they could do a mix like Game Changers and that could be a chance to have my queen Cirie return for a 5th time.

I always wondered if this was even possible. Not palau specially, but just to do like a redo season. Would there even be a cast willing to have all the members play again? I dunno how likely that is.

the most possible, and I don't really see the point, would be getting a whole tribe back.

Probably at most 6 of a tribe and doing a 6-6-6 split or 5-5-5-5. It could be interesting if there were a lot of terrible dynamics in the tribe, but in a situation where they are against another tribe it's kind of whatever.

If Survivor were on MTV I could see them doing a season like this, but I don't see the point of it or why CBS would do it.

I have to admit, part of me would be very intrigued to see a "Survivor Redo".  It would be a fun experiment.

As was already mentioned, the hardest part would be getting an entire cast back.  There are a ton of Survivor alumni who are completely done with the show.

I've always been interested in that idea too!!   I was thinking the best cast to do that with would be Heroes vs Villains, since the average casual viewer probably remembers most of that cast, and a lot of them have even returned since that season.  Plus the 10 year anniversary of HVV is coming up soon so it would be perfect.  It would def be pretty hard to get everyone from that cast back though.

Ideal pre-merge game design:

Purpose of design is to allow for characters to become known to the audience, stress alliances, create compelling storylines, and enable innovative and dynamic play.

18 players, opening in 2x9 tribes occupying adjacent but not the same territory. The water and tree mail site is in a single clearing on the border. Overt and covert communication would be possible. 

There would be a plot of ground in between the two territories that contains some resource like food or natural shelter and/or a hidden advantage that could be won in E1 or 2’s reward or reward/immunity challenge. This challenge should have a combat/war simulation design. I like weapons (spears, bows) against targets representing the other tribe. Perhaps the only pre-merge HII is here. 

E4, after 3 eliminations, each tribe arrives what is assumed to be a conventional swap. Instead, each tribe watches as the other tribe is required to vote out of their tribe 1 male and 1 female. These four players form a new 3rd tribe and are granted tribal immunity for TC4. Purpose; eliminates the targets of the majority alliances which will have now formed without randomly reassigning earned tribal advantages in numbers and rewards in E1-3. We enter the merge after E6 or 7 with 3 tribal groups which creates better game theory dynamic; also the new tribe will consist of the bottom of the ranking from their previous tribes. The dynamics and power structure of each tribe is exposed. 

The players should be empowered with information about the future or equipped with the ability or opportunity to influence or define the game’s design. These concepts would reduce the number of HIIs in play. 

See S26: East vs West for these concepts simulated.

Survivor: Loved Ones:

20 people who were "loved ones" on past seasons of Survivor attempt to outwit, outlast and outplay each other for the $1 Million prize!.

In addition to being a "loved one" from a past season, each player...:
1.  Cannot have been cast in a past season.
2.  Must still be a "loved one" (i.e. former boyfriends, girlfriends, wives and husbands cannot play).

This may have been suggested already, but I would like to see an advantage that can be used to nullify someone else's individual immunity idol, regardless of whether it's a hidden idol that is played at tribal council, or a regular idol that is achieved by winning a challenge.  The advantage can only be used at tribal council once the merge has taken place and up through final 6.

I like the ideas you have I hope they do a season of Return players that got voted out once due to un fair twist like Michael this last season he should be given a 2 chance along with Jenna Bowman season 36 they were both on a team that hated them so much they wanted them out I stopped watching season 36 when Michael was voted off in a un far way They didn’t have a chance to defend themselves. Michael better be on season 37 or I will stop watching all toghthrer Libby got screwed to i know people who stop watching sourivior because they always get rid of people like Malcom jt Thomas and now Michael and Ozzy joe jay will Taylor. I will not be watching sourivior anymore

The twist I want now is no twist! as in focus on editing people to be more fleshed out.

No Idols
No swaps
No ghost or exile Island

Just a plain season who's theme is the culture of the country it is held on.

You can have those Idol hunting players on the game dig for idols that don't exist.
