Are your more brains, brawn, or beauty? CBS has announced the cast for the upcoming 32nd season of Survivor, which is themed “Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty.”
The new season premieres on February 17th, at 8 p.m.
For the new season, 18 castaways are divided into three tribes: one for intelligence (brains), one for physical strength (brawn), and one for physical looks (beauty). The castaways will be sent to Kaoh Rong, an island in Cambodia.
Here’s a preview and the official announcement:
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.
