CBS ANNOUNCES 16 OF THE 18 CASTAWAYS FOR "SURVIVOR: SOUTH PACIFIC"

Two Former Castaways (to Be Announced Later this Week) Will Return to Seek Redemption

Hit Television Series, Hosted by Emmy Award Winner Jeff Probst, Premieres with Special 90-Minute Edition

CBS today announced 16 of 18 castaways who will compete against each other on SURVIVOR: SOUTH PACIFIC, when the Emmy Award-winning series returns for its 23rd season with a special 90-minute edition, Wednesday, Sept. 14 (8:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Two of the 18 castaways, to be revealed later this week, are former castaways who will return to seek redemption.

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. The tribes are comprised of individuals from all different backgrounds with the same ultimate goal: to be the Sole Survivor. While 16 of the contestants are new to the competition, two are former castaways who will be given another chance to compete for the million dollar prize.

The "Redemption Island" twist returns in SURVIVOR: SOUTH PACIFIC in which castaways who have been eliminated from the game will have an opportunity to return for a chance to win the million dollar prize. Each week at Tribal Council, when a castaway is voted off, they will be sent to live alone on Redemption Island and, in order 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 an opportunity to return to the game and the chance to compete for the title of Sole Survivor; and the loser is sent home.
