Special two-hour season premiere Wednesday, Feb. 13

CBS has announced the 20 castaways who will compete against each other on "Survivor: Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites," when the Emmy-winning series returns for its 26th season with a special two-hour premiere, Wednesday, Feb. 13 (8 p.m.) 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 $1 million prize?
