Expedition Robinson is a Swedish reality television program in which contestants are put into survival situations, and a voting process eliminates one person each episode until a winner is determined. The format was developed in 1994 by Charlie Parsons for a United Kingdom TV production company called Planet 24, but the Swedish debut in 1997 was the first production to actually make it to television. The show is one of the biggest and most controversial successes in Scandinavia, and variants have been produced in countries around the world (notably by Mark Burnett, who licensed the format to create the U.S. series Survivor in 2000).

Format

The name alludes to both Robinson Crusoe and The Swiss Family Robinson, two stories featuring people marooned by shipwrecks.

Sixteen contestants are put into a survival situation and compete in a variety of physical challenges. Early in each season two teams compete but later on the teams are merged and the competitions become individual. At the end of each show one contestant is eliminated from the show by the others in a secret "island council" ballot.

Ownership

Planet 24 was owned by Charlie Parsons and Bob Geldof. Their company Castaway Television Productions retained the rights to the concept when they sold Planet 24 in 1999.

Popularity

The final episode of season four was viewed by 4,045,000 people out of a total population of 8.8 million in Sweden. The series returned in 2009, now on TV4 with the world's third female hostess, Linda Isacsson.
