Product Description

Survivor's back and better than ever with the record-breaking seventh season, Survivor: Pearl Islands. Destined to be a gem in your Survivor collection, this special-edition DVD box set gives you many bonus features that allow you to enjoy the "full Survivor experience" - and try to outwit, outplay and outlast the crafty and scheming competition on Survivor: Pearl Islands.


The seventh season of Survivor made a legend out of Rupert Boneham, the most popular contestant in the history of the kingpin reality show. Was it because the giant bear of a man harbored a gentle personality, expressed in his job as a mentor for troubled teens? Was it his tie-dyed shirt and makeshift skirt? Or was it just good fortune that the season was set in the Pearl Islands of Panama, which allowed black-bearded Rupert, in the very first episode, to steal the opposing tribe's shoes, all in the name of the pirate theme?

But the season wasn't only about Rupert. It got off to an unusual start when the 16 castaways were tossed overboard wearing their street clothes and left to find supplies in a small village. There was Armani-suited attorney Andrew Savage straining to support a load of sand bags, muscular Osten Taylor making a surprising decision that inspired host Jeff Probst to alter his tag line, Sandra Diaz-Twine sneaking around in the bushes, tall blonde Christa Hastie in tears after being accused of throwing away fish, and Jon "Jonny Fairplay" Dalton pulling off a dirty trick and becoming one of the show's great villains. Other memorable contestants included athletic Burton Roberts, sexy mortician Darrah Johnson, and Scoutmaster Lillian Morris. Then when the 10 remaining people in the Drake and Morgan tribes expected a merge, an unprecedented twist prompted one castaway to declare, "Revenge, baby. It's all about revenge." Bonus features consist of commentary on two episodes by the team of Rupert, Sandra, and Christie, and on three episodes by Jon, Ryan Opray ("Ryan O."), Burton, and Andrew; a 29-minute season recap featuring new interviews with a number of contestants; and clips from each person's pre-game interview intercut with in-season footage that either supports or undercuts their plans. --David Horiuchi

From the shocking beginning to the surprising penultimate tribal council decision, Survivor Pearl Islands was filled with twists and turns as well as memorable players, all of which helped to make it one of the best seasons of the venerable king of reality shows.

Pearl Islands, the seventh season of Survivor, featured some amazing twists, possibly the physically strongest and most popular Survivor of all time, a well-documented twist that most contestants (and many fans) despised, a Survivor opting out, a surprising final two and one of the biggest villains in the history of the game.

Welcome to Survivor the way it should be.

This season got off to a great start, with tribes being thrown overboard with nothing but the clothes on their back. Andrew Savage and Shawn Cohen were wearing suits. Nicole, Christa and Tijuana were wearing nice dresses. Lillian was wearing a Boy Scout uniform. Whatever these people were wearing when their boat anchored off the shore of a Panamanian fishing village is what they had to wear for the rest of their time on the island.

Then, they were told there was nothing at their camp and were given money to barter with and purchase stuff in the village they were anchored off of. From the very beginning, the Drake Tribe worked together, using Sandra's fluent Spanish to get great deals, while the Morgan Tribe split up and ended up with very little and money left over. Of course the Drake Tribe was helped by "Blackbeard" Rupert Boneham looting the unattended shoes of the Morgan Tribe and then using them to trade for goods.

That looting was the first introduction of Rupert, the troubled teens mentor from Indianapolis and from that moment, he became a fan favorite.

I didn't think the show would hold up well to repeat viewing but it does. Surprisingly it's better when you can watch the episodes back to back without the week delay. Like "24" this show is tailor made for dvd.

Although Australia Outback is probably my favorite season overall this one is very good. You had an interesting mix of personalities. Obviously Rupert was the most popular and he was very enjoyable to watch but I'm one of the few who also liked Johnny "Fairplay". Sure he was a snake but he never pretended to be anything else. He really knew who to manipulate people and move himself along each week. His strategy to save Burton was brilliant.

As for Lilly well her constant whining/crying really grated on my nerves after a while and that darn boyscout uniform seemed out of place for some reason.

The "outcast twist" was a great idea too and completely changed the dynamics of the game. It pretty much sealed the Morgan tribes fate once the merge took place.

*SPOILER ALERT" as for the eventual winner Sandra well she played the game well enough to get her to the final three. Even though she didn't win any challenges she stuck with her alliance with Christa and Rupert as long as she could then sided with others to move her along and letting poor Christa take the blame for the whole "who threw out the fish?" incident was priceless. In retrospect she didn't ruffle any feathers too much and let people Like Fairplay and Burton do most of the dirty work. Her luckiest break was Lilly taking her to the final two and the rest as they say is Survivor history.

In closing I think the shows shot by the water make for more compelling television because the challenges are generally more difficult and the scenery is breathtaking. As someone who's visited the ocean there's nothing more beautiful in the world imo.

PS: The Tribe has Spoken. Season 7 Pearl Islands is a winner on dvd!

Honestly, I was too busy ogling Burton doing his thing in the Pearl Islands ;) Good heavens, that man is an Adonis!

But I have to agree, this was one of the most entertaining Survivor seasons: among others, you had Blackbeard in a tie dyed shirt (and later, a skirt) who stole shoes... a Cub Scout from the 666th level of Hell...a 250 lbs., hugely muscle-bound crybaby who was afraid of pelicans, crabs, palm fronds and WATER... and a despicably brilliant wrestler wannabe with a not-quite-dead-yet grandma.

And, of course, the Outcast twist, which drove Survivor purists in the internet forums crazy for weeks. All in all, a great season, and a worthy addition to your DVD library :)

I loved this season - Rupert was great, and I loved to "hate" Jon. I thought Sandra played an excellent game as well. This season contained some Survivor twists that were new and unexpected. I believe that Lil was blamed just a bit too much, and the ones that pointed the finger at her are the SAME ONES that attempted to vote her out, so who stabbed who in the back????

Okay, so I'm kind of biased because this is the first one I ever saw. BUT, I've yet to see one that's better than this. This one has all the elements that make "Survivor": Great characters; an exotic location; alliances; deceit; incredible challenges; amazing rewards; the coolest Immunity Idol ever and a huge big fat load of STRATEGY!!!!!!!! I mean it: If you're in any way someone who enjoys watching the social politics of the game, BUY IT RIGHT NOW!

This season contains one of the most adept and consummate strategists ever to play the game: The infamous "Johnny Fairplay". He glides through the game, effortlessly deceiving his tribemates, and pulls off one of the most audacious deceptions of reality televison. The best Survivor "villain" since "The Outback's" Jerri Manthey.

Of course, to balance Jon's "villainy", we also have Survivor's most loved contestant of all time: Rupert Boneham. It's not hard to see why the shoe-stealing, skirt-wearing, Grisly Adams-esque, affable pirate is so likable. Although many have argued that this season was dedicated to Rupert, there's no doubt that he was a huge factor in this seventh season's success.
But that, of course, is only two of many greats. The determined Burton Roberts, the elegant Tijuana Bradley, the beautiful Darrah Johnson, and the opinionated Sandra Diaz-Twine also added their own personalities and influences to the game.

Producer Mark Burnett alters his proven formula for this season, with some controversial results. The decision to shipwreck the castaways with nothing but the clothes on their backs was inspiring, and the scenes following the premiere's opening titles showing the survivors bartering and bargaining at the Panamanian village are great.
