TTJ's Survivor: Aruba is the eighth season of TTJ's Survivor Series. It will began in June 9, 2014 and ended in June 28, 2014. 

The season started off with 16 very brand new castaways. The two tribes were Barcadera carrying the blue buff and Savaneta carrying the green buff.

On Day 7, the tribes were switched. Then on Day 17, the tribes were switched once again. The tribes were merged on Day 20.

In the finale, it ended with Mike defeating Chris B. and Chris F. with a vote of 4–2–1. After the finale, the Reunion Show took place where Chris F. won Fan Favorite and Player of the Season. There were also new awards that were given.

Production

This season featured 16 brand new castaways. They are divided into two tribes, the Barcadera Tribe and the Savaneta Tribe. They will be dropped off in Eagle Beach, Aruba where they will be forced to live with each other! Not only will they have to survive the rocky beaches and the harsh weather, but also take each other out. Every few days someone will be voted out of the tribe. Exile Island twist is back and more twists are going to be in play. Who will get exiled and who has what it takes to overcome the rest?!

26 people were cut from casting, and 16 castaways chosen played for an entire duration they were there.

People that signed up on Tengaged website was asked to give their Username, Preferred Survivor Name (Some kind of name) it really doesn't matter, Color Level, Karma, Timezone, and a couple of other questions that are needed. Their Preferred Survivor Username is what goes on this wiki, and what goes on the intros.

(Real Cast List w/real Usernames)

Twist/Changes

  • Exile Island: Returning from the previous season, after an Immunity Challenge, players may banish a player from the rival tribe to Exile Island. This island (entirely separate from the existing camps) will force the banished player to fend for him/herself until the upcoming Immunity Challenge (unless stated otherwise). The player would not be left in despair, for he/she will be given clues to a Hidden Immunity Idol that is hidden somewhere on the island. Unlike Survivor: Peru the player who is sent to Exile Island will not be immuned from Tribal Council.
  • Two Tribe Switches: There were two tribe swaps in this season, the first one on Day 7, and the other on Day 17. 
  • Hidden Immunity Idols: While the current format of the Hidden Immunity Idol still applies, an additional Hidden Immunity Idol will be in play post-merge. The said idol will be used as two hidden idols, but is only one idol. The finder of this must share it with another person. That means, the finder and the person who they choose will be safe.
