SurvivorThe new season is upon us and CBS has officially released it.
Season 43 of the long-running series was hosted by Jeff Probst18 castaways are brought to Fiji by the Survivors Club, where they compete for $1 million and the title of sole survivor.
This year’s crop of players includes a U.S. Paralympian, a heart valve specialist, an elevator salesperson, a teacher, a pediatric nurse, and even a pet cremator, among others.
The network also released short video clips that highlight the best players.
Just like the 41st and 42nd installments, this season’s 26-day game “continues to evolve,” according to a CBS press release, as players “will be divided into three tribes of six and face a faster, more extreme season from the moment they step on the beach.”
As usual, the “moral dilemmas and unpredictable situations will test even the strongest competitor, as food is scarce, rewards and supplies are minimal, and the mental and physical challenges require players to make impossible decisions and adjust their strategies every day.”
