In the US version of the series a similar theme was used in both Survivor: Cagayan and Survivor: Kaôh Rōng with one notable difference: a third tribe made up of "beauty".

When the theme was first announced, Survivor host Jeff Probst explained that the three tribes reflected "the different qualities that people bring to Survivor. Not saying these necessarily are the only three, but these are three very distinct type of people".

"Is there one quality that is clearly more valuable in Survivor? And what happens when you tell somebody they’re in the smart tribe. Do they believe it?"
