CBS announced today the 20 castaways who will compete against each other on SURVIVOR: CARAMOAN – FANS VS. FAVORITES, when the Emmy Award-winning series returns for its 26th season with a special two-hour premiere, Wednesday, Feb. 13 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

The spring edition of SURVIVOR will feature the return of one of the game’s greatest pairings: Fans vs. Favorites. Ten ultimate SURVIVOR fans will have the chance to prove they have what it takes when they take on 10 of their favorite players from the past.  Dropped on the exotic Caramoan Islands, the 20 castaways will be divided into two tribes of 10: “The Bikal Tribe,” made up of former players deemed favorites, and “The Gota Tribe,” comprised of ultimate fans of the game. The Favorites may have an edge because of their experience, but they also have a big target on their backs. Meanwhile, the Fans, although inexperienced, can draw on their extensive knowledge of the game to give them an advantage. Who will prevail when these tribes collide and the castaways vie to outwit, outplay and outlast one another for the title of Sole Survivor and the one million dollar prize?

  • glover

    Terrible cast of returning players. I only like Corinne.

  • psychic

    Oh my God, Brandon Hantz. Creepiest guy on the planet. PLEASE KEEP HIM AWAY FRMO TELEVISION!

  • lisa

    franesca was voted off first why is she back?

  • RJ

    Favorites? I’ve watched every season and I recognize three names. Malcolm is a solid addition though!

  • Mon

    At least there’s no Coach!

    Erik? Is he (an Ice Cream Scooper by that time) the one who gave up his immunity idol to someone else and got himself voted out at the same tribal council? Love him! Had a good heart and intention but poor execution.

  • Jimbo

    Two hour premiere? Awesome.

  • r0ckmypants

    Not favorites…….. at all. Except Phillip. Whenever they showed his occupation as “Secret Service Agent (?)” I laughed out loud.

  • Survivor Fan

    33 DAYS AND COUNTING!

  • brian I

    Dumb cast.
