The groupings of these tribes, each comprising six castaways, "reflect the distinguishing qualities that people bring to the game and test whether there is any truth to the preconceived notion that particular characteristics impact certain areas of the game," according to CBS.

This season -- which was filmed in Cagayan, a province in the Philippines -- will debut with a two-hour premiere at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26.
