Survivor 2 - Island?
Before the first survivor is kicked out, the host says "...leave quickly and reflect about your time on the island." I didn't think the outback was an island.

From the Random House Webster's Dictionary: Island: n. a tract of land completely surrounded by water and not large enough to be called a continent There, the dictionary said it!

I am actually from Australia. It is a Island and it is a continent. Oceania is a region and the term is mainly used in order for worldwide sporting organizations into one qualifying section. No more post on the subject matter is required because this is the truth. Furthermore, the Survivor vote outs never left Australia until taping was done. They stayed in an hotel in Brisbane (the closest capital city to where the show was taped.)

Let's settle this once and for all: Australia is a continent, not an island. An island is a land mass surrounded by water that is smaller than a continent. If Australia is a island, then so are the Americas (North and South connected), Antarctica, and the huge Europeasiaafrica mass. Greenland is the world's largest island.

"Getting kicked off the island" has become such a cliche that he probably just used it out of habit.

First of all, Survivor is filmed on the spot so if Jeff said island and it was a mistake then so be it because he cannot do anything about it. Jeff Probst was probably so use to island because of the other 15 times he said it. If it wasn't mistake then it's also okay because Australia is an island. Like some other person said an island is piece of land surrounded by bodies of water on all sides. Second of all, everyone should go back to geography classes. I'm in the ninth grade and I even know that Australia is an island and a COUNTRY. Australia is no longer a continent because it has joined other islands in the ocean to make one big continent which in french is known as l'Oceanie.

Well, they're not getting kicked out of Australia, just the area where the game was going on.

Australia is the island and OCEANA is the continent. Oceana comprises of a good portion of the south pacific islands.

Webster's dictionary lists no definition for continent other than to state that a continent is one of the principal land masses of the earth and goes on to list the most commonly used names. Considering this, continent is simply a term given or not given to a land mass. Who decides? When you discover this, let me know. Furthermore, scholars around the world are still unable to agree on what the continents are or how many continents planet has.

Australia is commonly referred to as 'the ISLAND continent'. it is widely seen as the biggest ISLAND in the world. it is a totally different place to where they come from, half way accross the world. as an Australian i am personally familiar with all these. and, as fore mentioned, you must leave the ISLAND is just a catch phrase from the first series. now give Jeff a break!!

Rocking Rudy and Paranoid are correct. I was born and educated in Australia lived there untila few years ago. In school I was always taught never to refer to our country as an island. We are a continent....the world's smallest as it turns out. Australia may BE an "island" (body of land surrounded by water) but for the purposes of correct geographical terminology, it is NOT an island. If it were, then all bodies of land ultimately would be considered islands, wouldn't they?

Kicked off the island probably is a habit now. Australia is sometimes considered the world's largest island though. To the person who put in the dictionary definition: Australia IS a continent so you are wrong. To the person who thought they were on an island around Australia: Where do you think the outback is??? It was Survivor 2: The Australian Outback. The Outback is a dry place in the middle of Australia, so they weren't on and island around it.

Australia is not an island. Greenland is the worlds largest island. Look in a recent encyclopedia and you will see.

Okay, I know this FOR A FACT. Jeff Probst messed up that first time because he was used to saying island. It was NOT in reference to Australia being an Island. And also, the actual setting for Survivor: The Australian Outback, was not an Island OR the Outback. They just called it the Outback to make it interesting.
