19th Installment of the Hit Television Series Premieres on Thursday, Sept. 17th


CBS announced today the 20 castaways who will compete on SURVIVOR: SAMOA, when the 19th installment of the Emmy Award-winning series premieres Thursday, Sept. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. 


In one of the most beautiful Survivor locations yet, 20 castaways will be left to fend for themselves among Samoa's white sand beaches, lush green valleys and towering waterfalls. Despite the picturesque landscape, the castaways will face exposure to elements and wildlife living in the mysterious rainforests that cover rugged volcanic mountain peaks.  For 39 days, they will endeavor to outwit, outplay and outlast one another in order to win the title of Sole Survivor.   


Surrounded by coconut palms in a land steeped in tradition, the Samoans who inhabit this island have a proud history and strong sense of community that has enabled their own survival.  From the start of the game, Survivor embraces this Samoan culture by incorporating an ancient tradition of electing an individual leader of the village.  Without speaking, both tribes must immediately choose one member of their group to become their sole decision maker, their chief.  How important will the role of tribal chief be in determining the fate of each tribe?
