The Rules
In our first episode just before each season, our hosts do a blind fantasy draft. Using only the intel on the contestants available on the CBS.com website, they’ll pick their favorites for the ultimate winner of the show. The rules of the game are relatively simple: get points when your survivor does well, and try to pick players who will go deep into the game. When your survivor gets voted out, they’ll stop gaining you points. Each host will “draft” three survivors before the premiere of the season. Whenever a survivor leaves the show, either through medevac or getting voted out, the host can pick a new survivor to take their place (but they’ll lose out on survival points!). Hosts can also swap one of their survivors for a survivor that isn’t a part of any host’s team once per week.
