CBS Announces The 20 New Castaways Competing On New Season Of SURVIVOR

CBS announced today THE 20 CASTAWAYS who will compete against each other on SURVIVOR when the Emmy Award-winning series returns for its 37th season with a special 90-minute premiere, Wednesday, Sept. 26 (8:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

This edition, themed "David vs. Goliath," features 20 new CASTAWAYS DIVIDED into two groups of 10 strangers. CASTAWAYS who make up the "David" tribe have overcome adversity in their lives, while the CASTAWAYS on the "Goliath" tribe tend to capitalize on their individual advantages and use it against their opponents. This extreme game of social politics will focus on the "underdogs" versus the "favorites" and reveal that every "Goliath" has an Achilles heel, while every "David" has a secret weapon.

"'Goliaths' often have visible advantages, and they capitalize on them to ensure success, whereas 'Davids' are often forced to rely on their secret weapons and use these advantages to overcome adversity," says executive producer and host Jeff Probst. "It's two very different approaches to life, but SURVIVOR is the great equalizer, because you never know which skill set will be most useful in this cunning game of social politics."

These new CASTAWAYS will be forced to compete against each other with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast each other in an attempt to become the Sole Survivor. The show returns to the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji and is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst. This season's CASTAWAYS include a pro wrestler, a robotics scientist, an MMA fighter, a physician, and a S.W.A.T. officer.
