Survivor returns tonight to CBS with its 25th season and this season is Survivor Philippines. This season will welcome fifteen castaways, as well as reintroduce three returning contestant — all of whom were forced to withdraw from the competition on account of medical issues. So, will those individuals fare better luck this go around? We’ll see.
For the first time in a long while, the show will divide the 18 contestants up into three distinct groups, each of which bears the name of an animal distinct to the region: Kalabaw (“Water Buffalo”), Tandang (“Rooster”) and Matsing (“Monkey”). It is expected that this season will bring marine-based challenges to the forefront and, as always, demand the utmost physical endurance and stamina from each contestant. Survivor ain’t no easy game, folks!
On tonight’s premiere episode medically evacuated veterans Michael Skupin, Jonathan Penner and Russell Swan return to battle for the title of Sole Survivor. Meanwhile, former teen star Lisa Whelchel (“The Facts of Life”) fights to shield her identity from the tribe and, despite his athletic background, former National League MVP Jeff Kent (San Francisco Giants) hits a rough patch early in the game, on the special 90-minute season premiere of SURVIVOR: PHILIPPINES, Wednesday, Sept. 19 (8:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
