Recently, the show has taken on a new twist called Blood v.s. Water. Right now, we’re in the middle of the second season of this crazy variation. In Blood v.s. Water, each castaway brings a family or friend to play the game with. However, as soon as their feet hit the island, the couples are split up onto different tribes and are forced to compete against each other.

On this season, there are partnerships between couples, parents and children, brothers, and twins. Out of these partnerships, some “halves” have been voted out, and while sometimes the other half is distraught, most times they’ve barely batted an eyeball. If I was playing with someone I cared about, I have no idea how I would react once they were gone. But, you really couldn’t pay me to spend that much time on an uncivilized island.
