There have been thirty spectacular seasons of the show survivor, and along with them thirty winners of one million dollars and much more who came so close. When it started the seasons were just 18 random contestants, who had no idea about things like the merge, hidden immunity idol, and blind sides. Now, all are just an accepted part of the game. Along these many seasons there have been famous challenges and famous moves. One example is the famous “pole sit” challenge, in which the contestants have to hug a pole and stay up for sometimes hours to win immunity. Another iconic moment is the first alliance ever made. Richard Hatch, first Soul Survivor, won in large part to the first alliance ever in the game, and he was the creator. Other memorable moments include dumping out rice into the fire, multiple hidden immunity idols played, and incredible blind sides.
