Survivor will start up in 5 1/2 weeks and I was wondering how far ahead prior to the premiere do they release the names and bios of the castaways?

I'm sure Puddin knows.....lol

Gotcha, Puddin....

Found two logos on photobucket, may want to use one of them for the new board to replace Gabon

Survivor Tocantins: The Brazilian Highlands will be the show’s 18th season

For its 18th season, Survivor is heading back to Brazil, but to a place very different from the one that hosted Survivor Amazon. Survivor Tocantins (pronounced “toe-can-cheens”) is, as the subtitle suggests, set in the Brazilian highlands, north of Brasilia in the state of Tocantins along the Rio Novo River, where a crew member drowned before production began.
The new location will be officially announced at the end of the live reunion, but Jeff Probst pulled the trigger early. On his radio show Friday, Ryan Seacrest asked Probst [MP3] where he’s been, and Jeff said, “Brazil. That’s for the next season. That’s the show we can’t talk about yet, but we were out there.”
In addition, because of the crew member death; the location’s proximity to people and roads; local media reports; and a Brazilian crew member who apparently didn’t read his contract carefully and posted location photos and even a sketch of the logo online on Orkut (they’ve been deleted but are reproduced on Survivor Sucks), the location hasn’t exactly been a secret.
As many of you guessed, I traveled there in late October for the first few days of production, and while the location is beautiful—and, in some places, stunning—it was also miserable, with temperatures well over 100 even in the shade. By comparison, Gabon in the summer was cooler and more pleasant than Florida. The one rainstorm we had was like a tropical storm, not a thunderstorm. In other words, the environment will, I’m guessing, play a much more significant role next season.
The geography is kind of like high desert, although there are some trees, so kind of like savanna. Around the river, though, it’s much more jungle-like. The Brazilian location is remote but less so than Gabon, as power lines run along the road that base camp sits on, and there’s a small village nearby. Both tribes will live on the same river, and not too far from one another, although they’ll never know that.
CBS will probably announce the cast mid-January, when I’ll have a new round of interviews and analysis, and the new season debuts Feb. 12.

CBS ANNOUNCES THE 16 CASTAWAYS TO COMPETE ON "SURVIVOR: TOCANTINS - THE BRAZILIAN HIGHLANDS"
 

18th Installment of the Hit Television Series Premieres

in High-Definition on Thursday, Feb. 12

 

CBS today announced the 16 castaways who will compete on SURVIVOR: TOCANTINS — THE BRAZILIAN HIGHLANDS, when the 18th installment of the Emmy Award-winning series premieres Thursday, Feb. 12 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

 

            SURVIVOR: TOCANTINS will prove to be one of the most rugged locations ever visited and the only relief from these harsh conditions will be a river oasis known as the Rio Novo. Left stranded in the majestic interior of Brazil for 39 days, these castaways will battle scorching temperatures, torrential downpours, and dangerous wildlife all in an effort to outwit, outplay, and outlast one another in order to win the title of Sole Survivor.   

 

 

This season, the castaways will be divided into two separate tribes from the very beginning and these diverse individuals must immediately begin their game based solely on their first impressions of each other.  In advance of any formal introduction and before the castaways speak their first words to each other, one person from each tribe will be chosen to remain behind and will not continue with their group on the journey that lies ahead.  Will this mean the end for these two individuals or will they get a second chance to make a first impression?

Hopefully the 2 they pick to be left behind will end up being the ones given immunity at their 1st TC.  Otherwise I'm afraid my gal from Louisville will be gone.

My original guess was Louisville and Principal but I reckon Debra is really the new Tracy and looks really fit and she can run. I reckon she makes it. And 2: Puddin you should be right. I reckon they are exiled but come back for Immunity with maybe a immunity necklace?? Lets hope  :lol:

Maybe that's before he knew the numbers? ???

From TV Guide:

Quote
The Sweet 16 will be divvied up into two tribes from the beginning — Jalapao and Timbira — forcing them to play the devious Survivor game based on first impressions. How devious is it? One person from each tribe will be selected to stay put while their fellow castaways continue on. But, as CBS teases, they may "get a second chance to make a first impression."

The concencus is that the tribes are told to immediatley gather there stuff and head over to their tribe mat. They compete in a challenge to see weak links and personalities and Candace and Sandy are left behind. The girls are then swapped and Sandy goes to Timbira thus the "I dont like the old women" from Tyson and her seen possibly in previews wearing Black buff and Candace is pure spec thats what Sucks is saying. There is also talk that they give the two people Immunity for the first tribal council their new tribe goes to. Thus the second chance at making a "first impression"

Or we could be wrong and everyone stays on their repsective tribes but they leave behind those 2 and they are given HII's like Marcus and G.C for their first tribal council with their original tribes

 :duno: blah-blah-blah  :lol:

From reality blurred.com

Stephen, Tyson, Erinn were the most engaging Survivor Tocantins cast members; Sandy, Sierra were more annoying

 
The cast of Survivor Tocantins is a strong group, and one with fewer extremes. I have no doubt some will appall us and others will make us love them based upon their behavior during the show, but in person, they were pretty much all likable, engaging people—a nice change from Gabon.

Thus, it was very hard for me to rank the 16 new cast members this season from likable to unlikable, which I did last season. In Brazil, I found Sandy to be downright annoying but incredibly fun to talk to (hell, she was wearing a dehydrated animal penis as a necklace); Brendan was reserved and skeptical but smart and friendly; Spencer was in hyper superfan mode but was a great Survivor conversationalist.

Because no one was really hateful, and are instead just more annoying or less interesting than the others, this list ranks them from engaging to less engaging. And literally every one of them could be switched with the person before or after them in the list; it’s very arbitrary, since, again, no one left me with an overwhelmingly negative vibe.

Because of that, I’ve included two adjectives for each to identify what I recall as their most memorable personality traits. Starting next week, look for an interview a day with more details you won’t find anywhere else, including information about who was recruited (a lot of them), plus my analysis of their potential in the game and their strategies.

   1. Stephen Fishbach: intellectual, aware
   2. Tyson Apostol: witty, unassumingly smart
   3. Erinn Lobdell: fun, charming
   4. Candace Smith: amusing, assertive
   5. Spencer Duhm: young, cutely enthusiastic
   6. Tamara “Taj” Johnson-George: charming, well-rounded
   7. Brendan Synnott: cautious, attentive
   8. Benjamin “Coach” Wade: impossibly arrogant, self-aware
   9. Carolina Eastwood: worldly, perky
  10. Jerry Sims: resourceful, friendly
  11. Debra “Debbie” Beebee: considerate, inviting
  12. Sydney Wheeler: interesting, average
  13. Joe Dowdle: resolute, agreeable
  14. James “JT” Thomas Jr.: nice, flat
  15. Sandy Burgin: super-crazy-enthusiastic, annoying
  16. Sierra Reed: prepared, brash

a blurb in next weeks EW Magazine (will try to scan later)

Survivor Tocantins - The Brazilian Highlands

"The blindside continues to be a major force", reveals Jeff Probst. "It wreaks delightful havoc on a group of the most likable Survivors we have had in a long time."
Likable? We don't watch Survivor to make friends.

We did not have a TAR promo yet in CSI, but there is a :15 Survivor promo. Nothing earth shattering. It was after the first segment.
