Survivor: Congo was the forty-eighth season of Survivor. 

The season ended when Jade won the title of Sole Survivor, beating Wyatt by a unanimous 7-0 jury vote at the Final Tribal Council. The season featured 16 contestants dubbed as "castaways" marooned on two separate beaches in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They were divided into two tribes: Sankuru in red and Kasai in yellow. The tribes were named for cities in Congo where filming took place. On Day 19, the tribes merged into the blue Arrière-Cour tribe. Arrière-Cour means backyard in French, a reference to Congo being called "Leopold's Backyard" in the Imperial age. The name was coined by Wyatt. 

The hidden idol immunity was featured this season. Three were hidden; one for each original tribe and one at the merge. 

There was no clear twist this season, but producers later released a statement that a tribe switch was scheduled after the second tribal council, but after Kayla's evacuation and pre-existing dramatic tribes, the producers decided to drop the shakeup and kept the tribes together until the merge. 

Jade's win made season 47 and 48 the first back-to-back female wins since seasons 32 and 33. 

At the finale of the previous season, producers released a statement that the original host was retiring after the 50th season of the show. This was the first season to feature both James and Jeff as hosts of the show. James hosted challenges and Jeff hosted tribal councils. James read the votes in the last four tribal councils and the two took turns reading votes at the finale. 

The public was "surprisingly pleased" by the replacement, saying that the 28-year-old had "remarkable similarities to our familiar host and a keen knoweldge of the game."

  • At the first tribal council, two tied votes resulted in a purple rock. Aaron drew the purple rock and was eliminated.
    • On Day 4, Kayla complained of stomach cramps. She had developed appendicitis and was evacuated from the game. Because of Noelle's evacuation in the previous season, this was the first time players were evacuated in back-to-back seasons.
