Survivor: Ancient Civilization was the fifty-fourth season of Survivor. 

The season ended when Kate won the title of Sole Survivor, beating Ruby and Alison by a 5-3-1 jury vote at the Final Tribal Council. The season featured 18 contestants dubbed as "castaways" marooned on two separate deserts in Syria. They were divided into two tribes: Babylon in green and Sumer in black. The tribes were named after city states during the ancient period of civilization, or the ancient civlizations from which this season derived its title. On Day 19, the tribes merged into the yellow Mespotamia tribe. 

The main twist this season was the Double Vote twist. At random tribal councils, a random castaway was selected to use the option of casting a vote that would count as two (2x). A total of four double votes were cast over the course of the season. Ultimately, they had little impact on the outcome of the game. The twist was met with negative views and never returned. 

Outcast Island went back into "hibernation" this season. It would not be featured again until Survivor: Archipelago.

This season received mixed reviews. EW and SUG, the show's two most prominent and influential critics, each had a separate opinion. EW said "For a season following one we'd all like to forget, it was shamefully disappointing. Props to the cast, but with only unfairly weighted votes at Tribal, not much can be said for this season except 'Try again next time, Survivor.'" SUG, on the other hand, commented, "A well-cast season with an intriguing twist and smashing finish. All female final three!"

Kate Rivaracci, the winner of the season, was accused of cheating following her win. Rumors arose that she conpsired to split winnings between jury members who voted for her. Producers denied this, stating that anyone conspiring to split winnings would be disqualified. Three months after the show, Rivaracci declared bankruptcy and was subsequently arrested for counterfeit and fraud. She was the first Survivor winner to be arrested and the first to declare bankruptcy. Four of the five jury members who voted for her later said they regretted voting her way. Rivaracci is currently serving 10 years in a New Jersey prison. Producers stated she would never return to play again.
