Survivor: Germany is the sixth season of Janelle's Survivor Series, which began on June 21, 2013 and ended 15 days later on July 5, 2013.

The season featured 16 castaways, consisting of 14 brand new contestants chosen through the normal application process, and two returning castaways: Sam B. from Cayman Islands, and Sedona from Tanzania. Alike with Survivor: New Zealand, the returning castaways were divided into tribes. The twist this season was called Perplexing Pearls. Going into the game, the sixteen players were all given a white pearl. The pearl held the power to be able to cast an extra vote towards the person they wish to vote for at Tribal Council. The pearls were able for usage up until the final four, where any remaining pearls would be thrown into the fire. Contestants who were evicted pearl-in-hand were given a choice, whether to give this white pearl to another tribemate, or turn it into a black pearl and give it to a tribemate of your choice, this giving them self votes until they dispose of all white pearls they may have.

There were two tribes, both named after Germanic tribes: Salii, wearing near-black colored buffs, and Tubanti, wearing yellow-gold colored buffs. On Day 7, Salii and Tubanti became Tugetsu, named by Cole. The tribe wore red colored buffs.

The season ended with Mikayla L. being crowned the winner by a vote of 5-2, which became controversial afterwards having it been revealed that Mikayla L. was the multiple account of Nick M. from Cayman Islands. As a result of this, Nick was banned from playing in the series ever again.
