Earlier today, CBS announced 15 of the 18 castaways that will compete in the Philippines for $1 Million. The other three mystery castaways? You guessed it … they are alums of the long running reality show. The upcoming 25th season will premiere on Wed Sept 19 at 8/7c on CBS with a special 90-minute episode. The other mystery castaways will be revealed later this week, CBS promises. They have been medically evacuated from the game at one point or another and will be returning to finish off what they started. The cast includes folks from an 80′s TV star to an MLB MVP. 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”). With three tribes, the first two tribes to finish each challenge will be granted immunity with the third tribe headed to Tribal Council to eliminate one of their own.
Check out the cast below in both picture and video form. What’re you looking forward to most this season? Which three former castaways would you like to see return to the game?
