CBS ANNOUNCES 18 CASTAWAYS TO COMPETE ON "SURVIVOR: GABON -- EARTH'S LAST EDEN"

17th Installment of the Hit Television Series Premieres for the first time in High-Definition on Thursday, Sept. 25

CBS today announced the 18 castaways who will compete on SURVIVOR: GABON - EARTH'S LAST EDEN, when the 17th installment of the Emmy Award-winning series premieres for the first time in high-definition Thursday, Sept. 25 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Marooned in the wilderness, 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? 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 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."
