SX13: Zombie Island is the thirteenth season of the Survivor X series. This is the second season to depart from the two-seasons format and the first season to depart entirely to an original idea. This game follows a group of castaways who are attempting to survive a zombie apocalypse all the while outwitting, outplaying and outlasting each other until only one remains.
The main twist of the season involves how the two different tribes will operate. Following the first challenge, half of the cast survived a zombie attack and were known as The Commonwealth- who will basically play the game under normal Survivor X rules. Those who fell victim to the zombie attack became members of The Infected, who in exchange for camp life advantages have the option to Cannibalize one of their own members in exchange for a booted player of the Commonwealth Tribe. Depending on whether or not they survived the infection also determined which of the two Secret Powers castaways have access to as well.
When both tribes merged, one final twist was implemented known as "Return From the Dead". Each castaway was asked to submit a Hit List of the order they'd like to vote each opponent out of the game. When a player was voted out, although they were out of the game they would return from the dead to cast a vote for the player highest on their hit list. This twist continued until the final four.
Although she merged initially in the minority, Corinne Kaplan/littleblackspotonthesuntoday was able to successfully infiltrate the numbers by aligning with original Commonwealth members John Kenney/MCrre4331 and Rupert Boneham/meanderingduck6 to turn the tides on the dominant alliance within the Commonwealth tribe. Although seen as inactive, Corinne's sly ability to manipulate others into keeping her around despite being an obvious strategic threat allowed her allies to make it to the final three where the jury held her allies more responsible for breaking apart the Commonwealth and gave Corinne the victory in an overwhelming 6-1-1 vote.
