CBS ANNOUNCES THE TWO FORMER CASTAWAYS,

RUSSELL HANTZ AND "BOSTON" ROB MARIANO,

WHO WILL JOIN THE TRIBES ON "SURVIVOR: REDEMPTION ISLAND"


LOS ANGELES - Jan. 13, 2011 — CBS announced today that two former Survivors, Russell Hantz and "Boston" Rob Mariano, will join the 16 previously announced castaways on SURVIVOR: REDEMPTION ISLAND when the series returns for its 22nd season, Wednesday, Feb. 16 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Having never been awarded the title of Sole Survivor, Hantz and Mariano return to compete for the one million dollar prize and one last shot at redemption.  Each one will join a separate tribe of new castaways at the start of the game, but it's up to the tribe to decide if they will welcome the knowledge of an experienced veteran, or view these former castaways as a threat in the ultimate battle to outwit, outplay and outlast.
