Chronology

Survivor: New Zealand was the forty-third season of Survivor. 

The season ended when Christian won the title of Sole Survivor, beating Grant and Marilyn by a 9-0-0 jury vote at the Final Tribal Council. The season featured 18 contestants dubbed as "castaways" marooned on two separate beaches in New Zealand. They were divided into two tribes: Kopoka in blue and Toitoti in red. The tribes were named for New Zealand cities. On Day 21, the tribes merged into the purple Zelepalan tribe. 

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

The main twist this season occurred in Episode 7. While the tribes were expecting a merge, the tribes swapped unexpectedly. The losing tribe went to Tribal Council and the tribes merged the next day. 

One of the most coincidental elimination patterns occurred in this season. At the merge, the six new Toitoi tribe members went to jury before the five remaining new Kopoka members. This was never planned nor did the Kopoka tribe create any final five alliance. Producers stated: "It's not like it's some sort of freak incident, but it certainly struck us as odd, especially since no alliances formed within the new Kopoka tribe."

This was the first sesaon to feature two individual immunity necklaces at the first merged immunity challenge. This was a pattern that, starting in the show's 45th season, awarded individual immunity to the first man and woman to complete the challenge. This trend was omitted in season's with late merges or unfair male to female ratios. 

Carlin's exit was one of the most sympathetic on the show, as according to a poll conducted during the Survivor: Extravaganza polls

Christian's win was the first uninanimous vote since Survivor: Tonga26 seasons earlier.
