Survivor Tamil is a game show hosted by Arjun Sarja that is based on the Swedish reality show Expedition Robinson, which was founded by Charlie Parsons in 1997. Vijayalakshmi was voted the winner of the first season of Survivor Tamil, which ran for three months on Zee Television.

The actress received a majority of the jury members' votes and was declared the sole survivor.
A cash reward of Rs 1 crore was given to Vijayalakshmi. She thanked the jury members who voted for her and her fans for their unwavering support on Instagram.

Another contestant, Umapathy, was regarded as one of the hardest contenders from the beginning of the show. His failure to reach the finals came as a surprise to the viewers.

Towards the end, Vijayalakahmi told Umapathy that she would choose him as the second finalist alongside her, but when the time came, she selected Vanessa.

She explained why she didn't choose Umapathy as the second finalist after the show, claiming that her conversations justifying her choice were not aired.

In Umapathy's latest post, however, he didn't mention Vijayalakshmi's decision. He apologised to his followers for failing them and promised that he would perform better in his future films. He shared his before-and-after photos, revealing that he lost weight while on the show, dropping from 80kg to 66kg.
