Survivor: South China Sea was the fifty-first season of Survivor. 

The season ended when Zane won the title of Sole Survivor, beating Whitney and Brett by a 6-3-0 jury vote at the Final Tribal Council. The season featured 20 contestants dubbed as "castaways" marooned on two separate beaches on the South China Sea. They were divided into two tribes: Jiaohua in black and Tiantang in red. Jiaohua means "home" in Chinese and Tiantang means "heaven." On Day 19, the tribes merged into the green Long Da Mei. Long Da Mei means "Big Beautiful Dragon" in Chinese. 

The main twist this season was return of two famous castaways who participated in Survivor: China (Koa and Sky). Koa joined the Jiaohua tribe and Sky joined the Tiantang tribe. Both made the merge. 

This was the first season to feature only James as host of the show. He would host the rest of the seasons to the present. Jeff never made a reappearance. When both Carly and Joanna were evacuated, critics said "James handled the affairs with excellent poise, maybe even better than Jeff! When Hannah quit, you could see the host was ready to pound sand, which perfectly embodied what the rest of the viewing public was thinking!"

This season featured the most castaways to leave without being voted off, with four. Carly and Joanna were evacuated and Gabe and Hannah quit. 

In Episode 5, a Warrior Swap occurred. This twist was seen in many previous seasons, but this was the first time it was designated a name. 2 members from each tribe were sent to the other. In this case, it was Zane and Brett who went from Jiaohua to Tiantang and Crystal and Reese went from Tiantang to Jiaohua.
