Premise

The 13th edition of the reality series strands 20 people on the Cook Islands in the Pacific to vie for the $1 million grand prize. Initially, the castaways are divided into four ethnically diverse groups (African-American, Asian-American, Hispanic, white). Also, at least one player per episode is banished to a separate island to live alone, but on Exile Island there is a hidden immunity idol that, if found, can save a person from being voted out at tribal council.
