Hit TV series, hosted by Emmy winner Jeff Probst, premieres Wednesday, Feb. 15
CBS announced today the 18 castaways who will compete against each other on "Survivor: One World" when the Emmy Award-winning series returns for its 24th season, Wednesday, Feb. 15 (8 p.m.) on the CBS Television Network.
"Survivor: One World" pushes the game to its limits, forcing the two competing tribes to share one beach. The castaways must fight the elements, adapt to their new surroundings and vie against each other to stay in the game or be voted out by their peers, all while living together on the same beach. Tribes, separated by men versus women, will have to decide whether to share their resources with each other or leave the opposing tribe to fend for themselves. This ultimate social game becomes even more difficult to navigate because alliances could be formed between members of different tribes much earlier, adding yet another layer of intrigue to this competitive game.
The 18 castaways will be divided into two tribes of nine: the Salani Tribe and the Manono Tribe, named after islands in Samoa. Divided by men versus women, the tribes are comprised of individuals from all different backgrounds with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast and ultimately be crowned "Sole Survivor."
