CBS ANNOUNCES THE 18 CASTAWAYS COMPETING ON THE NEXT EDITION OF "SURVIVOR," PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 27

This Season, Themed "Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers," Marks the 35th Edition of the Series

CBS announced today the 18 castaways who will compete against each other on SURVIVOR, when the Emmy Award-winning series premieres Wednesday, Sept. 27 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. This season returns to the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji and will celebrate the 35th edition of the series.

This edition, themed "Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers," will feature 18 castaways, divided into three groups of six based on how they are perceived by others. Heroes are used to being heralded for their achievements, healers receive gratitude for their work and hustlers must earn respect from others. These castaways will be forced to compete against each other with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast each other in an attempt to become the Sole Survivor. The show is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst. This season's castaways include an Olympian, an NFL player, a bellhop, a diversity advocate and a urologist.
