Survivor: Thailand is the fifth season of James' Survivor FanFiction. Sixteen strangers will compete against one another while battling the elements. They must learn to adapt, or they will be voted out. If they can learn to outwit, outplay, and outlast the rest, they will be given the million dollar prize and the title of sole survivor!
The winner of the season was ???, defeating ??? in a ??? vote for the title of Sole Survivor and the $1,000,000 prize. ??? was named the "Player Of The Season", winning $100,000.
This season featured sixteen all new castaways, divided into two tribes of eight. The tribes this season were Chuay Gahn, wearing orange, and Sook Jai, in purple. The tribes are Thai phrases for "to help one another" and "a happy heart". On Day 25, the two tribes merged into the Chuay Jai tribe, a portmanteau of the initial tribe names, with its color being gold.
- Tribes Divided by the Eldest: Unlike the previous four editions where the producers pre-selected the contestants' tribe affiliations, this season had the contestants choose their own tribemates. The fact that elders are given utmost respect in Thailand was incorporated into the game by allowing the eldest male contestant, Ricardo, and the eldest female contestant, Salma, to divide the rest of the group into two tribes.
- Camp Advantages and Disadvantages: Similar to the previous season, the tribes had camps with pros and cons. Camp Chuay Gahn is virtually a cave, thus making shelter a non-issue, though its water source was on the other side of the island. Sook Jai's camp has a nearby water hole, though they have to make their own shelter.
- Mutiny: On Day 14 the castaways were invited to change tribal affiliation at their own will.
- Fake Merge and Delayed Merge: On Day 19, the Sook Jai tribe was instructed to move to Chuay Gahn's old camp. This created a situation where the two tribes lived at the same camp without being merged (as they were soon to find out). The actual merger took place six days later, on Day 25.
