CBS ANNOUNCES 15 OF THE 18 CASTAWAYS FOR "SURVIVOR: PHILIPPINES," PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 19

Cast Includes A Former National League MVP And An '80s Television Star, Plus Three Prior Castaways Who Were Medically Evacuated, To Be Announced Later This Week

Today CBS announced 15 of the 18 castaways who will compete against each other on SURVIVOR: PHILIPPINES. The Emmy Award-winning series will return for its 25th season with a special 90-minute edition, Wednesday, Sept. 19 (8:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Three of the 18 castaways, to be revealed later this week, are former players who were medically evacuated from the game and are returning to finish what they started. The 15 new castaways vying to outwit, outplay and outlast one another include former National League MVP Jeff Kent (San Francisco Giants), and '80s television star Lisa Whelchel ("The Facts of Life").

For the first time in eight years, SURVIVOR: PHILIPPINES will be comprised of three tribes named after animals in the region: Kalabaw ("Water Buffalo"), Tandang ("Rooster") and Matsing ("Monkey"). The tribes feature individuals from different backgrounds competing for the same ultimate goal: to be Sole Survivor.

Surrounded by water, SURVIVOR: PHILIPPINES will prominently feature marine-based challenges where the three tribes will battle for first and second place in order to be granted immunity, while the third-place tribe will head to Tribal Council and face elimination.
