Cochran was one of the 10 "favorites" that returned to play Survivor. On his previous season, Survivor: South Pacific, Cochran made it to the jury as the 13th castaway voted out. He also mounted a huge turnaround from his first season to win four individual challenges.

Meanwhile, returning player Malcolm Freberg took home the van-voted Sprint player of the season award, which carries a $100,000 prize.

Probst also revealed during the live finale that the next edition will be subtitled "Blood vs. Water" and begins shooting soon, but he didn't divulge more details.
