Survivor: Cook Islands is the sixth season of the TTRS Franchise, and is based off of the American  CBS competitive reality television series  Survivor. The season followed Fresh Meat.

During this season of Survivor, the contestants were divided into four tribes by color level; White-Light Green, Dark Green-Purple, Red-Black, and Silver Level and Up. The respective tribes' names were Manihiki ("Hiki"), Puka Puka ("Puka"), Aitutaki ("Aitu"), and Rarotonga ("Raro"). These four tribes were named after islands located in the Cook Islands. In the third episode, the four tribes evenly divided into two new mixed tribes, just Aitutaki and Rarotonga. After the merge, the tribe was named Aitutonga.

A mutiny offer was made to all remaining players during this season. In this season, two players from the same tribe accepted the mutiny offer, which turned out to be a critically important turning point in the game, as it caused the remaining four members of that tribe to be nearly destroyed and form a small minority for the rest of the game.

During the Immunity challenge in Episode 8, the losing tribe was given a bottle with a note in it that was only to be revealed after that tribe voted off a member at the following Tribal Council. As it turned out, the note required the losing tribe to immediately vote a second person off, thus creating the first time one tribe has voted off two members during a single Tribal Council.

The concept of Exile Island was utilized, with 2 hidden immunity idols located somewhere on the island. Although both of the idols were found, one was wasted a tribal council to save Yankees14456, causing Dolfan1010 to be voted out. The other idol was used by Taylor112399, however he was in no danger of being voted out.

There was a Final Three facing a jury of nine, which included players that were voted out before the merge. The final jury setup meant that a two or three-way tie to decide the winner of the game was possible, though the method to resolve this tie was unknown at the time.

In the end, Yankees14456 defeated BENLINUS and LaFierceBrittany2 by a vote of 4–3–2 to become the Sole Survivor.
