Default How Survivor can keep going for another 20 years

https://www.theringer.com/2020/5/15/...s-cast-changes

"After 20 years and 40 seasons, Survivor has become the Jeopardy! of reality television. It has transcended its genre and become not just a tentpole reality show, but an integral part of American TV culture," says Riley McAtee. "Even as many other reality shows have fallen by the wayside since the early 2000s boom, Survivor has trucked onóand is still showing no signs of slowing down. But Survivor hasnít lasted this long, and stayed this popular, by resting on its original formula. On the contrary, Survivor has evolved constantly over its two decades on the air. At the core, the game always has been about social politics, ruthless strategy, survival skills, and tropical imageryóbut the exact nuts and bolts have shifted dramatically since Richard Hatch won Borneo back in 2000, with changes in setting and cast themes, and more importantly, tiny tweaks to the rules of the game that have had large implications. With Winners at War now in the rearview mirror, itís a good time to take a step back and reflect on what makes a good season of Survivor. Itís also time to look forward and ask the question: Can Survivor stay on the air for another 20 years? Here are four principles for Jeff Probst and Co. to keep in mind as they chart the future of the show." His suggestions include maintaining emphasis on having the best casts, forcing players into difficult decisions, contestants who are balanced in the strategic, physical, and social aspects of the game and to show, don't tell. ALSO: Survivor has been at the forefront of America's paranoid style of entertainment.
