Eighteen castaways will compete on Survivor when the Emmy Award-winning series returns. This edition, filmed in Cagayan, a province in the Philippines, will be themed 'Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty,' and will feature three separate tribes who all have the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast, and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor. This season will feature a high-stakes poker player, an attorney, an ex-NFL cheerleader, a nuclear engineer, the president of the Miami Marlins and a former NBA All-Star. The show is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst.
