Production for Te Urewera did not begin immediately after Yukon, as a lenghty hiatus was planned so records for the previous season, along with Broadway, could be finished. Due to demand, however, the season took place shortly after the previous one, and was a success. Like the previous season, Te Urewera was praised for its strong cast and professional challenges.
The roleplay was on high demand due to the fact that it was supposed to be the last one before All-Stars. The season was also praised for the worthy final five, in contrast to that of other seasons. Production for All-Stars began immediately after with a casting meeting finalizing the contestant list. The cast list changed again after Pompeii.
See all twists at Twists.
- Fallen Comrades - A twist in which the final 3 take a portion of time before the final elimination to remember those that they either directly or indirectly eliminate. Contestants are led on a trail holding a post for each previously eliminated contestant. When players reach a post, they are expected to comment on the fallen contestant.
- Raffle Table - A surprise element that only appears when a tied vote remains deadlocked. All contestants who are not involved in the tie will sit around a table. The head of the table spins, and whoever the red portion of the table lands in front of is eliminated from the game.
