SX8: Fijook Isles was the eighth game in the series, paying homeage to the thirteenth & fourteenth seasons of the actual show. In true Cook Islands fashion, the tribes were initially divided by the race of their representative, which created some long term rivalries throughout the game.

This season instituted the Camp Life system where decisions made at camp altered the castaways ability to participate in challenges. Castaways were initially abandoned at sea with a ship full of supplies and competed amongst each other to claim them. The Caucasians and African-Americans both were able to make it back to shore rich with supplies while the Hispanics and Asian-Americans soon found themselves at a huge disadvantage right from the start.

This season is notable for SX's most ingenuious take on the racially divided core tribes resulting in the Exile Tribe- a fifth tribe made up of one member from each ethnic group that changed round to round. This season was also notable for the Exile Conspiracy, where everyone believed there was a Hidden Immunity Idol in the game during the pre-merge when in fact there was not. The Hidden Immunity Idol was introduced to the game at the merge following a Fiji-style Post-Merge Swap. Following last season's format, this season had a final three but the jury was enlarged to nine.

This season may be most notoriously known for the heated post-merge battle that took place between the integrated Aitu and Moto tribes. With the social politics and twists of the game changing literally every week, each and every vote from the final 10 onward was a blindside and the New Aitu and New Moto tribes alternated losing a member each week until the finale.

Parvati Shallow/JVJrule defeated Stacy Kimball/americanidolfan4life and Jonathan Penner/reggierules in a 4-3-2 vote, declaring her the winner after being the catalyst behind the string of post-merge blindsides and never once herself was a target.

Parvati would join Liz Kim/retro cord of Samoanesia as the second winner to play a "Perfect Game"- winning the game without once receiving a vote.
