Season 31: Cambodia - Second Chance

"Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance" (2015) is back on CBS for Season 31 with Jeff Probst as host. In a series first, fans of the popular reality series chose the twenty castaways who will compete in this season. Fans cast their votes over a two-week period in spring 2015 and the castaways who received the most now comprise the cast.

The newly announced contestants, ten male and ten female, immediately boarded a bus following the Season 30 reunion show and began their journey to Cambodia, where the next season will film for 39 days. The original pool of 32 former players, ranging from Season 1 to Season 30, have never won the game and felt they deserved a second chance to compete for the $1 million prize and the title of Sole Survivor.

The female contestants include Kelly Wiglesworth (Season 1, Borneo), Kimmi Kappenberg
(Season 2, The Australian Outback), Peih-Gee Law (Season 15, China), Monica Padilla (Season 19, Samoa), Abi-Maria Gomes (Season 25, Philippines), Ciera Eastin (Season 27, Blood vs. Water), Tasha Fox (Season 28, Cagayan), Kass McQuillen (Season 28, Cagayan), Kelley Wentworth (Season 29, San Juan del Sur), and Shirin Oskooi (Season 30, Worlds Apart).

The male contestants include Jeff Varner (Season 2, The Australian Outback), Andrew Savage (Season 7, Pearl Islands), Terry Deitz (Season 12, Panama), Stephen Fishbach (Season 18, Tocantins), Vytas Baskauskas (Season 27, Blood vs. Water), Woo Hwang (Season 28, Cagayan), Spencer Bledsoe (Season 28, Cagayan), Jeremy Collins (Season 29, San Juan del Sur), Keith Nale (Season 29, San Juan del Sur), and Joe Anglim (Season 30, Worlds Apart).

Soon after "Survivor" premiered on May 31, 2000, it became a cultural phenomenon, and is now the longest running reality-competition program. The innovative game that helped shape the reality genre of television has filmed 459 episodes through the end of this current season, across 17 countries, and has been played by 460 castaways. This upcoming season will mark the first time in the show's 15-year history that fans have decided the entire cast.

"Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance" (2015) hosted by Emmy Award-winning host Jeff Probst and produced by SEG, Inc. Mark Burnett and Jeff Probst are executive producers.


Season 30: Worlds Apart

After 15 years and 30 seasons, the spring 2015 edition will feature the first-time theme of "Worlds Apart," with castaways from very different backgrounds divided into the three separate tribes. The all-new castaways will be grouped by White Collar, Blue Collar and No Collar.

The White Collars (Masaya Tribe), known for making the rules, includes a corporate executive, a retail buyer and a marketing director. The Blue Collars (Escameca Tribe), known to follow the rules, consists of a postal worker, an oil driller and a contractor. The No Collars (Nargarote Tribe) boasts free spirits who are known to break the rules. This tribe consists of a coconut salesman, a sailing instructor and a YouTube sensation. These three tribes will have very different approaches to how they play the game and interact with each other, while sharing the same goal: to outwit, outplay, outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor and winner of the $1 million dollar prize.

The White Collar (Masaya Tribe) consists of ex-talent agent assistant Tyler Fredrickson, retail buyer So Kim, corporate executive Carolyn Rivera, media consultant Max Dawson, Yahoo executive Shirin Oskooi and marketing director Joaquin Souberbielle.

The Blue Collar (Escameca Tribe) consists of state trooper Kelly Remington, barrel racer Sierra Dawn Thomas, oil driller Mike Holloway, hairdresser Lindsey Cascaddan, postal worker Dan Foley and general contractor Rodney Lavoie Jr.

The No Collar (Nargarote) consists of sailing instructor Jenn Brown, law student Hali Ford, jewelry designer Joe Anglim, hearing advocate Nina Poersch, coconut vendor Vince Sly and YouTube sensation Will Sims II.


Season 29: Blood vs. Water

"Survivor: Blood vs. Water" (2014) is back on CBS for Season 29 with Jeff Probst as host.

The fall 2014 edition of the Emmy Award-winning reality competition series brings back the "Blood vs. Water" theme as all-new castaways compete with — and ultimately against — their loved ones who share the same goal: to outwit, outplay, outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor and winner of the $1 million dollar prize. Alliances and relationships will be tested and bonds will be broken when mothers, daughters, brothers, spouses and partners vie against each other in the ultimate competition, raising the question of which is thicker: Blood or Water?

This season marks the return of Exile Island, where each week two loved ones square off against one another in a battle that will send the loser to isolation on Exile Island, while the winner receives reward for his/her Tribe. However, the winner will also have to choose a tribemate to accompany their loved one to Exile Island.

The "Survivor: Blood vs. Water" (2014) contestants include twin sisters Nadiya Anderson & Natalie Anderson, mother and daughter Missy Payne & Baylor Wilson, father and son Keith Nale & Wes Nale, dating couple Jaclyn Schultz & Jon Misch, husband and wife Jeremy Collins & Val Collins, boyfriends Reed Kelly & Josh Canfield, dating couple Julie McGee & John Rocker, brothers Alec Christy & Drew Christy, and father and daughter Dale Wentworth & Kelley Wentworth.


Season 28: Cagayan - Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty

"Survivor: Cagayan - Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty" (CBS) is back for Season 28. The spring 2014 edition of the Emmy Award-winning reality competition series was filmed in Cagayan, a province in the Philippines.

The groupings of these tribes, each comprised of six castaways, reflect the distinguishing qualities that people bring to the game and test whether there is any truth to the pre-conceived notion that that certain characteristics will help you win the game of "Survivor." All castaways will compete to outwit, outplay, outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor.

The season's cast includes a high-stakes poker player, an attorney, an ex-NFL cheerleader, a nuclear engineer, the president of the Miami Marlins and a former NBA All-Star. Will the Brains use their expertise solving puzzles to outsmart the others? Will Brawn dominate all the challenges, given their physical attributes? Or will Beauty use their looks to master the social game?

The "Survivor: Cagayan" contestants include Brawn tribe members Cliff Robinson, Lindsey Ogle, Sarah Lacina, Tony Vlachos, Trish Hegarty and Yung "Woo" Hwang; Brain tribe members David Samson, Garrett Adelstein, J'Tia Taylor, Kass McQuillen, Tasha Fox and Spencer Bledsoe; and Beauty tribe members Alexis Maxwell, Brice Johnston, Jefra Bland, Jeremiah Wood, LJ McKanas and Morgan McLeod.


Season 27: Blood vs. Water

"Survivor: Blood vs. Water" (CBS) is back for Season 27. The fall 2013 edition of the Emmy Award-winning reality competition series will feature former players competing with — and ultimately against — their loved ones who share the same goal: to outwit, outplay, outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor. Will the returnees use their prior experience in the game to help their partners or will they leave their relatives alone to fend for themselves? Alliances and relationships will be tested and bonds will be broken when mothers, daughters, brothers, spouses and partners vie against each other in the ultimate competition, raising the question: which is thicker — Blood or Water?

This edition of "Survivor 2013" will feature the return of Redemption Island, where castaways who have been eliminated from the game can seek redemption and return for a chance to win the million dollar prize. The twist this season, however, is loved ones will be forced to choose whether to "save" their partner on Redemption Island and switch places with them, thus allowing their loved one to immediately re-enter the game, or leave them in exile to survive on their own.

The "Survivor: Blood vs. Water" contestants include dating couples Tyson Apostol ("Tocantins," "Heroes vs. Villains") & Rachel Foulger, and Kat Edorsson ("One World") & Hayden Moss ("Big Brother 12"); brothers Aras Baskauskas ("Panama") & Vytas Baskauskas; uncle and niece Gervase Peterson ("Borneo") & Marissa Peterson; mothers and daughters Laura Morett ("Samoa") & Ciera Eastin, and Tina Wesson ("Australia," "All Stars") & Katie Collins; engaged couple Colton Cumbie ("One World") & Caleb Bankston; and married couples Rupert Boneham ("Pearl Island," "All Stars," "Heroes vs. Villains") & Laura Boneham, Candice Cody ("Cook Islands," "Heroes vs. Villains") & John Cody, and Monica Culpepper ("One World") & Brad Culpepper.


Season 26: Caramoan - Fans Vs. Favorites

"Survivor: Caramoan" (CBS) is back for Season 26. The spring 2013 edition of the Emmy Award-winning reality competition series will feature the return of one of the game's greatest pairings: Fans vs. Favorites.

Ten ultimate "Survivor" fans will have the chance to prove they have what it takes when they take on 10 of their favorite players from the past. Dropped on the exotic Caramoan Islands, the 20 castaways will be divided into two tribes of 10: "The Bikal Tribe," made up of former players deemed favorites, and "The Gota Tribe," comprised of ultimate fans of the game. The Favorites may have an edge because of their experience, but they also have a big target on their backs. Meanwhile, the Fans, although inexperienced, can draw on their extensive knowledge of the game to give them an advantage. Who will prevail when these tribes collide and the castaways vie to outwit, outplay and outlast one another for the title of Sole Survivor and the one million dollar prize?

The "Survivor: Caramoan" contestants include Allie Pohevitz, Andrea Boehlke, Brandon Hantz, Brenda Lowe, Corinne Kaplan, Dawn Meehan, Eddie Fox, Erik Reichenbach, Francesca Hogi, Hope Driskill, John Cochran, Julia Landauer, Laura Alexander, Malcolm Freberg, Matt Bischoff, Michael Snow, Phillip Sheppard, Reynold Toepfer, Shamar Thomas and Sherri Biethman.


Season 25: Philippines

"Survivor: Philippines" (CBS) is back for Season 25. The Emmy Award-winning reality competition series will feature three former players who were medically evacuated from the game and are returning to finish what they started. The 15 new castaways vying to outwit, outplay and outlast one another include former National League MVP Jeff Kent (San Francisco Giants), and 1980s television star Lisa Whelchel ("The Facts of Life").

For the first time in eight years, "Survivor: Philippines" will be comprised of three tribes named after animals in the region: Kalabaw ("Water Buffalo"), Tandang ("Rooster") and Matsing ("Monkey"). The tribes feature individuals from different backgrounds competing for the same ultimate goal: to be Sole Survivor.

Surrounded by water, "Survivor: Philippines" will prominently feature marine-based challenges where the three tribes will battle for first and second place in order to be granted immunity, while the third-place tribe will head to Tribal Council and face elimination.

Season 24: One World

"Survivor: One World" is back for Season 24, which pushes the game to its limits, forcing the two competing tribes to share one beach. The castaways must fight the elements, adapt to their new surroundings and vie against each other to stay in the game or be voted out by their peers, all while living together on the same beach. Tribes, separated by men versus women, will have to decide whether to share their resources with each other or leave the opposing tribe to fend for themselves. This ultimate social game becomes even more difficult to navigate because alliances could be formed between members of different tribes much earlier, adding yet another layer of intrigue to this competitive game.

The 18 castaways on "Survivor 2012" will be divided into two Tribes of nine: the Salani Tribe and the Manono Tribe, named after islands in Samoa. Divided by men versus women, the tribes are comprised of individuals from all different backgrounds with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor.

The "Survivor: One World" contestants include Alicia Rosa, Bill Posley, Chelsea Meissner, Christina Cha, Colton Cumbie, Greg Smith, Jay Byars, Jonas Otsuji, Kat Edorsson, Kim Spradlin, Kourtney Moon, Leif Manson, Matt Quinlan, Michael Jefferson, Monica Culpepper, Nina Acosta, Sabrina Thompson and Troy Robertson.


Season 23: South Pacific

On "Survivor: South Pacific," the 18 castaways will be divided into two Tribes of nine: the Savaii Tribe and the Upolu Tribe, named after the two islands of Samoa. The tribes are comprised of individuals from all different backgrounds with the same ultimate goal: to be the Sole Survivor. While 16 of the contestants are new to the competition, two are former castaways who will be given another chance to compete for the million dollar prize.

The "Survivor: Redemption Island" twist returns in "Survivor: South Pacific" in which castaways who have been eliminated from the game will have an opportunity to return for a chance to win the million dollar prize. Each week at Tribal Council, when a castaway is voted off, they will be sent to live alone on Redemption Island and, in order to stay in the game, will need to compete in a duel against the next person eliminated at Tribal Council. The winner of each duel earns the right to continue fighting for an opportunity to return to the game and the chance to compete for the title of Sole Survivor; and the loser is sent home.


Season 22: Redemption Island

"Survivor: Redemption Island" will feature a new twist when, for the first time, castaways who have been eliminated from the game will have an opportunity to seek redemption and return for a chance to win the million dollar prize. Each week at Tribal Council when a castaway is voted off, they will be sent to an isolated island called "Redemption Island," where they will live alone in exile. To stay on Redemption Island, they will need to compete in a duel against the next person eliminated (and then against each subsequent person voted off), with the loser being sent home. The winner of each duel earns the right to continue fighting for an opportunity to return to the game and the chance to compete for the title of Sole Survivor.


Season 21: Nicaragua

"Survivor: Nicaragua" features twenty castaways competing in a tribal battle of the ages. For the last ten years, "Survivor" has traveled to the farthest corners of the planet and subjected over 300 contestants to the harshest environments. As the next decade of "Survivor" begins, this new group of strangers will compete on "Survivor: Nicaragua." The castaways will be marooned in a land of smoldering volcanoes, wildlife and impenetrable terrain. They will be forced to work together to adapt to their new surroundings, yet compete against each other to the stay in the game or be voted out by their peers. In the end, only one will remain to claim the million-dollar prize and title of Sole Survivor.

These 20 castaways will be divided into two Tribes of 10 comprised of older competitors and younger competitors. The Espada Tribe, made up of individuals over the age of 40, must prove they have the life experience and knowledge that will ultimately help them Outwit and Outlast their younger competitors. The La Flor Tribe, consisting of individuals ages 30 and younger, will have to use their youth and vitality to Outplay and ultimately Outlast their elders.


Season 20: Heroes vs. Villains

On "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains," twenty former castaways will return to compete on Season 20 of the Emmy Award-winning series.

"Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains" will reunite some of the most memorable, heroic and controversial castaways from previous "Survivor" seasons. The series' best strategists will face off in their attempt to overcome — or embrace — the label placed upon them when they return to seek revenge or redemption, all in an effort to win the title of Sole Survivor.

These unforgettable castaways will compete deep in the South Pacific on the breathtaking island of Samoa and will be divided into two tribes of 10 comprised of the best heroes and biggest villains ever to play the game. The heroes have been defined by their decisions of integrity, courage and honor, while the villains have mastered their skills of deception, manipulation and duplicity.

The series will follow the relationships and conflicts that develop among the two divergent groups. Ultimately some castaways will be forced to choose between pre-existing relationships or tribe loyalty in the spirit of competition. What happens on a tribe full of heroes? Will the villains self-destruct or will they be able to co-exist?


Season 19: Samoa

On "Survivor: Samoa," Season 19 of the reality competition TV series, 20 American strangers will compete on Samoa's rugged islands. In one of the most beautiful "Survivor" locations yet, the castaways will be left to fend for themselves among Samoa's white sand beaches, lush green valleys and towering waterfalls. Despite the picturesque landscape, the castaways will face exposure to elements and wildlife living in the mysterious rainforests that cover rugged volcanic mountain peaks. They will be forced to work together to adapt to their new surroundings, yet compete against each other to the stay in the game or be voted out by their peers. For 39 days, they will endeavor to outwit, outplay and outlast one another in order to to claim the Million Dollar Prize and win the title of Sole Survivor.

Surrounded by coconut palms in a land steeped in tradition, the Samoans who inhabit this island have a proud history and strong sense of community that has enabled their own survival. From the start of the game, "Survivor" embraces this Samoan culture by incorporating an ancient tradition of electing an individual leader of the village. Without speaking, both tribes must immediately choose one member of their group to become their sole decision maker, their chief. How important will the role of tribal chief be in determining the fate of each tribe?


Season 18: Tocantins

"Survivor: Tocantins — The Brazilian Highlands" will prove to be one of the most rugged locations ever visited and the only relief from these harsh conditions will be a river oasis known as the Rio Novo. Left stranded in the majestic interior of Brazil for 39 days, the castaways will battle scorching temperatures, torrential downpours, and dangerous wildlife all in an effort to outwit, outplay, and outlast one another in order to win the title of Sole Survivor.

On season 18 of "Survivor," the castaways will be divided into two separate tribes from the very beginning and these diverse individuals must immediately begin their game based solely on their first impressions of each other. In advance of any formal introduction and before the castaways speak their first words to each other, one person from each tribe will be chosen to remain behind and will not continue with their group on the journey that lies ahead. Will this mean the end for these two individuals or will they get a second chance to make a first impression?


Season 17: Gabon

Marooned in the wilderness on "Survivor: Gabon - Earth's Last Eden," 18 individuals will embark on an amazing African adventure, battling extreme conditions and interacting with wildlife such as elephants and gorillas, while attempting to forge alliances with strangers from diverse backgrounds. "In a strange coincidence to Earth's Last Eden - good vs. evil emerges as a major theme this season. I think the audience will quickly identify with one group or the other," host Jeff Probst teases. Will the group of deceitful castaways outlast those individuals who play from their heart or will the forces of evil prevail on "Survivor 17: Gabon - Earth's Last Eden?" Will temptations interfere with logical decision-making? More importantly, which side will come out on top?

In a "Survivor" first, the magnificent landscape, natural elements, and fascinating wildlife featured on "Survivor 17: Gabon - Earth's Last Eden," will be enjoyed by viewers in high-definition, enhancing the overall experience of the show. Probst claims, "Shooting in HD is like adding another character to the show. The detail is so sharp you can't help but feel as though you are experiencing the adventure yourself."


Season 16: Micronesia

In a "Survivor" first, 10 ultra-fans of the series will take on 10 former castaways to compete on "Survivor 16: Micronesia: Fans vs. Favorites." The two tribes will be marooned amidst the Rock Islands of Palau, Micronesia. The skills of the former castaways will be put to the test on "Survivor 16: Micronesia: Fans vs. Favorites" while the tribe of first-time competitors will see if their enthusiasm and passion for the game is enough to distinguish them as worthy competitors. Who will prevail to become Sole Survivor on "Survivor 16: Micronesia: Fans vs. Favorites?"





Season 32
