[via press release from CBS]

CBS ANNOUNCES THE 16 NEW CASTAWAYS FOR "SURVIVOR: PANAMA -- EXILE ISLAND"

Sixteen New Castaways Set To Compete When The 12th Installment Of The Hit Television Series Premieres on Thursday, Feb. 2

Each Week, At Least One Castaway Will Be Banished To Fend For Themselves On A Separate Island

CBS today announced 16 new castaways to compete in SURVIVOR: PANAMA -- EXILE ISLAND. The castaways will begin as four tribes and at least one castaway each week will be banished to a separate island when the 12th installment of the Emmy Award-winning, top-rated series premieres Thursday, Feb. 2 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

SURVIVOR: PANAMA -- EXILE ISLAND, hosted by Jeff Probst, will find the 16 new castaways initially divided into four tribes of four -- Older Men vs. Older Woman vs. Younger Men vs. Younger Women (the four tribes will become two during a schoolyard pick in the second episode). During the duration of SURVIVOR: PANAMA -- EXILE ISLAND, at least one castaway each episode will be banished to a separate island miles away from camp. While being separated from the tribe is not desirable, the castaways will learn that there is a hidden Immunity Idol somewhere on Exile Island. If found, this Immunity Idol could save an individual from being voted out at a future Tribal Council.

In the premiere episode, the four tribes will compete in a Reward Challenge where the losing tribe must decide which one of their tribe members will stay behind on Exile Island. This individual will be forced to fend for themselves until the next Immunity Challenge, but they will also have the first opportunity to locate the whereabouts of the Hidden Immunity Idol.
