CBS ANNOUNCES THE 20 CASTAWAYS TO COMPETE ON "SURVIVOR: SAMOA"
           


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?

Good question!!!  Technically 6 of the 10 from California moved there from somewhere else but there are a whole lot more states out there to be picked from.   Should also help their ratings if they picked from all across the country.  Most seem to be from coastal states, all but 3 or 4 I believe.

I don't care if they live in California as long as they have a big personality that makes for great TV e.g Coach
'We are the makers of music, and the dreamers of dreams' - 'To roam the roads of lands remote, to travel is to live'.
