Survivor: All-Stars is the eighth season of the United States reality show Survivor. It was filmed in 2003 and debuted in the United States on CBS on February 1, 2004 after Super Bowl XXXVIII. It was set on the Pearl Islands of Panama, where the previous Survivor: Pearl Islands had just finished. The winner of this series was Amber Brkich, whose 4–3 victory over Rob "Boston Rob" Mariano was announced on live television on May 9, 2004. At the end of the series a twist called America's Tribal Council was broadcast live on May 13, 2004. It involved the public voting for whom they wanted to win a second million-dollar prize. When the show was broadcast, Rupert Boneham won the million dollars.
Rob Mariano, Rupert Boneham, Colby Donaldson and Jerri Manthey returned to Survivor once again in the show's 20th season, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains. They finished 13th, 6th, 5th and 4th, respectively. Rob was invited for the fourth time to participate in the 22nd season Survivor: Redemption Island, which he won.
