Among the competitors looking to win the $1 million prize are a former NBA All-Star, a pro poker player, a nuclear engineer, a hairstylist, the president of the Miami Marlins and a former Miss Kentucky Teen USA.
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.
The tribes are:
Former NBA All-Star
Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Jersey City, N.J.
Yung “Woo” Hwang
Newport Beach, Calif.
Martial Arts Instructor
President, Miami Marlins
Santa Monica, Calif.
Pro Poker Player

Latasha “Tasha” Fox
St. Louis, Mo.
Miss Kentucky Teen USA

Survivor is hosted by Jeff Probst and produced by SEG Inc. Probst also serves as executive producer alongside Mark Burnett.
