iSurv1vor: India is the nineteenth season of the Online Reality Game iSurv1vor

This season will have seventeen new contestants compete with two returning winners and two returning players who have "unfinished business", making India the second season to premiere with twenty-one players after Hawaii. The theme of the season is based on the Indian Caste System.

For the first time in iSurv1vor, all twenty-one contestants will be placed in one section of the forum known as "Three Tribe Camp" and not in a specific group as tribes will fluctuate every round based on individual performances at Immunity Challenges. Those who score high are granted Immunity, iS Rupees and placed on the Brahmin tribe whilst those who place middle and lowest will split into two separate tribes called Vaishya and Shudra respectively. As all the cast will share the same communal section of the forum, inter-tribal communication is permitted and encouraged.

A twist known as the Amulet of Ganesh is given to the person who ranks first in an Immunity Challenge and must immediately award this to one person on either Vaishya or Shudra which grants them Individual Immunity. At the end of each round, Vaishya and Shudra attend separate Tribal Councils and vote one member out where they will go to Redemption Cove (a modified version of Redemption Island used in Bali) where they will compete in a Duel to remain in the competition. The winning player remains on Redemption whilst the loser will be eliminated permanently, there are no more than three people competing in a Duel at any time with two people leaving Redemption from the second Duel. This style of Redemption Cove retired at the merge, however, players were informed of "The Untouchables" - a twist known ahead of time. The two (or more) to have the lowest amount of Rupees at a predetermined point would head to Redemption Cove and must earn their way back into the game.

iS Points return for the fourth season (known as iS Rupees) which castaways will earn by winning challenges and meeting journal requirements. To keep in line with the caste system, all Rupee earnings are made public making it the first time players will be able to know how much their opponents are earning. Player of the Week rankings returned for the second season, awarding additional iS Points based on their likeability in the game.

Animal won unanimously against Joe and Brenda who both share Runner-Up.

Jermaine won Player of the Season in a 15% vote defeating Animal and Joe.


Season 19 was officially announced after the Bali reunion, Sandros has confirmed that he will be hosting whilst Tucker would be stepping down after Mexico[1], Kirin would not host due to school commitments whilst Adrian will focus on forum design, making this the first time since Canada that Sandros has hosted solo (though Tucker, Kirin and Adrian stay on as Production Staff) Jared from Faroe Islands and José from Congo will take over iSurv1vor Live! duties, interviewing alumni and contestants of the series though they did not assume these duties in Japan due to José competing as one of the Favorites tribe[2]

Casting for the season began September 1st, 2013 (two days after the Mexico finale) and closed September 10th, 2013. The initial cast was slated for fourteen players in a similar fashion to Bermuda but after a surge of new applicants the cast expanded to seventeen and finally twenty-one. Mike (Bermuda) and Cody (Mexico) were due to play but were both cut and Kelman (Faroe Islands) was offered a spot but turned it down, he returned to compete in Japan.

Redemption Cove

After a one season absence, Redemption Island was retooled and known as Redemption Cove for India. When there are either 2 or 3 inhabitants at Redemption Cove those people will compete in a Duel (or Truel) to remain in the game for one more round. There is one re-entry point where that person returns to the merge camp at the Final Ten without any form of immunity from the first vote and is eligible to be voted out once again. This style of Redemption was radically different from Bali as the person who won the duel waited for the next competitor rather than returning to their old tribe.

Redemption Cove redeemed, Woods, on Day 19 after defeating, Zack and Quanz. When the Untouchables twist occurred on Day 28, Jedda was saved by the Brahmin tribe to return and Nax defeated Ricky in the final duel on Day 30.


Early reviews of the game were mixed due to the racially motivated comments of Brookie in-game when voting against Jermaine at the first Tribal Council with Sandy initially calling India "the BB15 of iS" the voluntary eliminations of Aaron and Jordan alongside Fei and Greg who were blindsided and instead of competing at Redemption Cove chose to quit simultaneously.

The later game was praised with Redemption Cove producing a worthy champion and the Untouchables twist which saw the dismantle of one of the more known alliances; The Axis of Evil. The finale drew in it's biggest audience and fan reception.


  • The logo for India was designed exclusively for iSurv1vor by, Adrian from Congo.
  • Joe and Jordan are the only players in iS history to compete twice with Redemption Island in play.
  • Jeffy held the distinction of most days at Redemption Cove with twelve.
  • Woods has the longest record of surviving Tribal Council after returning from Redemption Cove with 2, Parq and Mariconda (the two redeemed from Bali) were voted out at the following Tribal Council's they attended
  • Brahmin is the series third tribe to be a pre-merge and merge tribe after Memphis from Egypt and Ta'lab from Arabia
  • Jedda appeared in the Australian Reality TV show Young, Lazy & Driving Us Crazy! in 2014, where he was the eventual winner, taking home $20,000.[3]
