Hot Jupiters are intrinsically rare objects, but selection effects favour their discovery in both radial-velocity surveys and ground-based transit searches such as WASP and HAT. I will discuss the migration routes that bring these gas-giant planets into such close orbits around their host stars. I will then examine the environmental factors that determine the long-term survival prospects of hot Jupiters, showing how tides and irradiation sculpt the inner boundary of the mass-separation diagram for gas-giant planets.
