Appearances: Every season

The Rites of Passage (sometimes referred to as Fallen Comrades) is a ceremony performed by the remaining contestants before the Final Immunity Challenge (penultimate in Survivor Fan Characters 15).

Format Edit

During the ceremony, the contestants travel along a path containing the torches of their eliminated competitors, in the order of their elimination, and recite a few words about each player. Commentary from the eliminated players themselves is then presented, alongside a blurred out moment of their time in the game.

In earlier seasons, the contestants would receive the additional task of disposing the torches of the eliminated players as a way of paying respect. Beginning with Survivor Fan Characters 5: The Cursed Islands, this was no longer performed.
