Description The series or franchise that a contestant comes from
Appearances Every season

A "node" is the term used to describe the series or franchise of which a contestant originates from. It can be a video game, film, television show, novel, or any other media format.

About[]

A node can provide context to contestants' backgrounds, and is prominently featured in the lower third during confessionals. Originally, they would appear underneath the contestant's name, but beginning with Survivor Fan Characters 7, they have since appeared beside the contestant's name.
