LoganWorm's Survivor: Tonga is the first season of the Survivor group. Applications for the season began on April 12th, 2013. Originally, the first sixteen people to apply that would be available would be accepted, but later the change in the format prevented the actual first sixteen to be accepted. Applications originally ended on April 14th, 2013, but were reopened on April 18th, 2013 due to three drop-outs and a change in the format. More drop-outs were expected. Applications closed again on April 23rd, 2013 and sixteen new castaways were selected the same day for the cast. The season premiered on April 27th, 2013. It was set in the Niuatoputapu area of Tonga, which is a set of islands in the Polynesia region.

After four tribal councils, the game took a long break due to the host having issues in his life. The game rebegan on June 6th, 2013 and continued until June 21st, 2013.

The sixteen contestants, referred to as "castaways", were originally split up into two tribes of eight. These tribes were named Tavili and Hunganga, two islands in the Niuatiputapu region of Tonga. They represent the name of the beaches and the separate teams with immunity and tribal council. The merged tribe was named by the ten castaways who made the merging. They named the tribe Athena. Castaway Santana Santiago quit after 21 days of competition which left only the core nine of the game. After 39 days of competition, Jeff Formaggio was given the title of Sole Survivor, defeating Avery Flame on a 2-1 vote. 

Jordan Maine and Pruedence Halliwell tied on the Fan Favorite vote, making them both Fan Favorites. LoganWorm gave the Player of the Season award to Jordan Maine.



The series premiere began with sixteen people on one boat split into two tribes, Tavili and Hunganga. A five person alliance was formed between Jordan, Lynette, Kami, Jeff, and Avery. Another one was formed on Hunganga between Prue, Ty, Santana, Jacob, and Ryan. Instantly, Tavili proved their strength in challenges by winning one. Hunganga then threw away their chances of winning a challenge by voting out their most active members, one-by-one. The merge rolled around and it was three Hunganga members vs. seven Tavili members. Hunganga had their work cut out for them. An all girls alliance was formed on Day 20 between Santana, Prue, Kami, Lynette, and Sandra and they were going to stick together. But, on Day 21, Santana quit the game and left Prue alone with Ty. Ty went inactive and became an instant easy target for the Tavili members. Lynette decided that the Goddesses alliance between the five girls could not be kept, so she decided to stick with her original five person alliance. First, Hungagna was pagonged in the merge. Then, everyone outside of the five person alliance was taken out. Jordan was sent out by a purple rock because the vote was tied and then retied. Lynette was voted out by Jeff because he felt Lynette had attempted to vote for him when Prue was still around, but it was actually Sandra who had attempted to stay true to the all girls alliance. In the end, Jeff won on a 2-1 vote against Avery. Prue and Jordan tied for the Fan Favorite poll and were both awarded the title. Jordan was awarded the Player of the Season.


There were sixteen people, known as "castaways", that were divided into two tribes, Tavili and Hunganga. After six castaways were voted out, the ten left merged into one tribe, Athena. Seven castaways made up the jury, who ultimately decided who would win the game and the title of Sole Survivor.
