The Cataclysm: Tokelau is the eighteenth season of the fictional reality competition series The Cataclysm. Taking place in the Polynesian island country of Tokelau, nine men and nine women will compete in the ultimate test of strength, endurance, and intelligence in order to be the "last one standing" and claim the $2,000,000 prize.

Contestant Gabriel Hunter later returned to compete on The Cataclysm: Vietnam, where he placed 12th. Winner April Hoskins returned to compete on The Cataclysm XXV.

Format Edit

  • Exemption Challenge: The Cataclysm's immunity challenge. The winners of this challenge are exempt from elimination.
  • Commander: Prior to an exemption challenge during the faction stage, each team must select a member to be the team captain. This player becomes the Commander for that challenge. The Commander of the winning faction gets to nominate three players from the opposite team to face the voting ballot.
  • Ballot: The Cataclysm's elimination round. Those nominated to face the ballot risk being eliminated.
  • Medallions: In addition to the Resurrection Medallion, the Fire Medallion, which allows the holder to instantly nominate a player for the ballot, and the Chaos Medallion, which allows the holder to leave all players up for elimination, excluding the holder of the chaos medallion and the exemption challenge winner.

New Features and Twists Edit

  • Faction Trade: On Episode 5, the two factions were given the opportunity to vote off a member of their faction. The contestants that received the most votes on the teams trade places.
