CBS ANNOUNCES THE 18 CASTAWAYS COMPETING ON THE NEXT EDITION OF "SURVIVOR"
Special 90-Minute Season Premiere, Themed "Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty,"
Airs Wednesday, Feb. 17
CBS announced today the 18 castaways who will compete against each other on SURVIVOR, when the Emmy Award-winning series returns for its 32nd season with a special 90-minute premiere, Wednesday, Feb. 17 (8:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
The spring edition of SURVIVOR, filmed on the island Kaôh Rong in Cambodia, will be themed "Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty." The location offers harsh conditions and relentless weather for the castaways, presenting one of the most physically grueling seasons in the show's history.
The groupings of the three tribes, each comprised of six castaways, possess similar characteristics that make their group unique - high IQ, muscular physique and physical looks - and test whether there is any truth to the pre-conceived notion 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.
Included on this season's cast is an Army veteran, an emergency room doctor, a bounty hunter, a former FBI agent, a pro poker player, a superfan, a quantitative strategist and a former NBA champion.
The battle unfolds when these three tribes compete on SURVIVOR:
"Chan Loh" Tribe - Brains

Vero Beach, Fla.
Former FBI Agent
Ice Cream Entrepreneur
The Brawn Tribe - "To Tang"
