After two decades of buildup, “Survivor: Winners at War” finally debuted February 12, 2020 on CBS. In the two-hour season premiere, 20 fan-favorite champions returned for a shot at a record high prize of $2 million. The first two voted-out players were Natalie Anderson and Amber Brkich Mariano, but they’re hardly the only ones to feel the agony of having their torches snuffed by Jeff Probst. If you’re looking for Season 40 spoilers on every elimination so far, you’ve come to the right place. Tour our photos above to see the updated “Survivor” bootlist.
For this all-winners installment the controversial Edge of Extinction is back in play, aka the deserted island where ousted players live in isolation and wait for their chance to return to the game proper. Another twist this year is the introduction of fire tokens, which castaways can use to buy things like food, comfort and idols. The Extinction Island inhabitants have the option of finding secret advantages and/or immunity idols and selling them to players still in the game for their fire tokens.
Natalie Anderson — 1st Voted Out (Day 2)
Boot Episode: “Greatest of the Greats (Part 1)” on February 12, 2020. This winner of “Survivor: San Juan del Sur” was eliminated by the Sele tribe in a 7-2-1 vote over Denise and Adam. Natalie cast her vote for Denise because she was told the tribe wanted to break up the Denise/Adam relationship.
Amber Brkich Mariano — 2nd Voted Out (Day 3)
Boot Episode: “Greatest of the Greats (Part 2)” on February 12, 2020. This winner of “Survivor: All-Stars” was eliminated by the Dakal tribe in a 6-3-1 vote over Kim and Nick. Amber voted for Nick, not knowing that her so-called “poker alliance” was seen as such a dangerous threat by the majority of her tribe.
Danni Boatwright — 3rd Voted Out (Day 6)
Boot Episode: “It’s Like a Survivor Economy” on February 19, 2020. This winner of “Survivor: Guatemala” was eliminated by the Sele tribe in an 8-1 vote over Parvati. Danni went after Parvati when she incorrectly thought she had turned on her, but Rob wasn’t on board with voting out his number two, so Danni had to go.
Ethan Zohn — 4th Voted Out (Day 9)
Boot Episode: “Out for Blood” on February 26, 2020. This winner of “Africa” was eliminated by the Sele tribe in a 4-3-1 vote over Adam and Parvati. The five “new schoolers” knew they had to break up the three “old schoolers,” but they didn’t want Adam to call the shots so they let him vote for Parvati while the other four banded together to oust cancer survivor Ethan.
Tyson Apostol — 5th Voted Out (Day 11)
Boot Episode: “I Like Revenge” on March 4, 2020. This winner of “Blood vs. Water” was eliminated by the Dakal tribe in a 7-1-1 vote over Nick and Kim. Tyson thought there would be an “easy vote” to eliminate Nick, but he miscalculated how much Sandra wanted revenge for Tyson previously throwing out her name.
Rob Mariano — 6th Voted Out (Day 14)
Boot Episode: “The Buddy System on Steroids” on March 11, 2020. This winner of “Redemption Island” was eliminated by the Yara tribe in a 4-1 vote over Sarah. Boston Rob tried to convince Ben and Adam to stick together and vote her out, but the boys were sick of his bullying behavior so they joined up with Sarah and Sophie.
Parvati Shallow — 7th Voted Out (Day 16)
Boot Episode: “Quick on the Draw” on March 18, 2020. This winner of “Micronesia” was eliminated by the Sele tribe in a 3-2 vote over Wendell. Despite Parvati’s plans to try to work with Wendell and later Nick, the three former Dakal boys (including Yul) stuck together to send Parvati packing.
Sandra Diaz-Twine — 8th Voted Out (Day 16)
Boot Episode: “Quick on the Draw” on March 18, 2020. This two-time winner of “Pearl Islands” and “Heroes vs. Villains” was eliminated by the Dakal tribe in a 1-4 vote over Denise because Denise used an idol to save herself. Specifically, Denise used the idol Sandra had given her hours earlier as a way to make a big move by ousting the “Survivor” Queen.
Yul Kwon — 9th Voted Out (Day 18)
Boot Episode: “We’re in the Majors” on March 25, 2020. This winner of “Cook Islands” was eliminated by the Sele tribe in a 3-1 vote over Wendell. Yul tried to make a deal with Michele and Nick, but they were wary of his social strengths so they decided to vote out the last remaining “old school” player.
Wendell Holland — 10th Voted Out (Day 21)
Boot Episode: “This is Where the Battle Begins” on April 1, 2020. This winner of “Ghost Island” was eliminated by the Koru tribe in a 9-3 vote over Adam. Wendell’s close friendship with Jeremy was seen as a threat by the others, particularly Sophie, so he was sent packing at the merge.
