16 castaways announced for “Survivor: South Pacific”
16 of 18 castaways who will be competing against each other on “Survivor: South Pacific” have been announced today in a news release.
Two of the 18 castaways, who are former castaways returning to seek redemption, will be revealed later this week.
“Survivor: South Pacific” has a 90-minute debut at 7 p.m. Sept. 14 on CBS.
The 18 castaways will be divided into two Tribes of nine; the Savaii Tribe and the Upolu Tribe, named after the two islands of Samoa, with the “Redemption Island” twist returning, in which castaways who have been eliminated from the game receive an opportunity to return for a chance to win the million dollar prize.
When a castaway is voted off each week at Tribal Council, they will be sent to live alone on Redemption Island and, to be able to stay in the game, will need to compete in a duel against the next person eliminated at Tribal Council.
The winner of each duel earns the right to continue fighting for a chance to return to the game and the opportunity to compete for the title of Sole Survivor; and the loser is sent home.
“Survivor: South Pacific” is hosted by Jeff Probst and is produced by SEG, Inc., with Mark Burnett, Jeff Probst and David Burris serving as executive producers and Leisa Francis serving as co-executive producer.
