Survivor Blood vs. Water News: Cast and Twist Revealed  Posted on Aug 21, 2013 09:50am


 CBS announced today the 20 castaways who will compete against each other on SURVIVOR, when the Emmy Award-winning series returns for its 27th season with a special 90-minute premiere,Wednesday, Sept. 18 (8:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.


Former Players Compete With Their Loved Ones
The fall edition of SURVIVOR, themed "Blood vs. Water," will feature former players competing with - and ultimately against - their loved ones who share the same goal: to outwit, outplay, outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor. Will the returnees use their prior experience in the game to help their partners or will they leave their relatives alone to fend for themselves? Alliances and relationships will be tested and bonds will be broken when mothers, daughters, brothers, spouses and partners vie against each other in the ultimate competition, raising the question: which is thicker - Blood or Water?
 
 
Redemption Island Returns... With a Twist
This edition of SURVIVOR will feature the return of Redemption Island, where castaways who have been eliminated from the game can seek redemption and return for a chance to win the million dollar prize.  The twist this season, however, is loved ones will be forced to choose whether to "save" their partner on Redemption Island and switch places with them, thus allowing their loved one to immediately re-enter the game, or leave them in exile to survive on their own.

Redemption Island with a twist... It's kind of ambiguous how it'll work out for now... But I guess it's going to be REALLY interesting. I'm totally going to guess that the ladies (the wives particularly) would want to swop places with their husbands if their man got backstabbed/removed from the game first or what!

I hope so!  :cheer:

I have very low expectations for this season. It just gives me a feeling of "meh". :/

But we'll see.

I especially don't like the TAR-style "Meet the Cast" videos. :res:

I'm okay with seeing the cast so far, but eager to see how Redemption Island will play out with the twist. :)

Really don't like this cast at all, aside from seeing Gervase, Kat, Candice and Monica. <3

I guess I am the only one who absolutely loved Colton in the first season? I don't know but has any other person single-handed make his/her tribe go to tribal instead of another? I like his and his fiancÚ's plan too.
Should've given Francesca another chance to complete her hat-trick  :funny:

Aras and Vytas are my favorites. I like Gervase and his niece too. Colton and Tyson should be fun to watch. I never LIKED Laura, but I don't dislike her at all. Kat's annoying. Candice is a good player but kind of boring. I don't know why Tina is back but I don't mind her. Monica and her husband will be really good. And of course, there is the lovable Rupert Boneham.

While I might have chosen some different players, I think this twist will be fascinating to watch. Will loved ones turn on each other? Save each other? Stab each other in the back? Lots of room for drama...and human interest. I'm in!

Amanda and her sister Katrina would have been a wonderful pair to play this season. Loved them in China and Micro!!! But letting her play for the fourth time may be overkill (obviously an understatement when comparing with Rupert  :res: ).

Amanda said she will NEVER play again because of the way they edited her to be a passive player in all the seasons she played. And I totally feel for her. They edited Danni in Guatemala to be really quiet and everything but she's totally the opposite of what was portrayed (she's a Sports Radio DJ!! How can she be quiet/passive??)

I am totally LOVING the twist this season and I'm sure Survivor likes to bring back returning players because well... the last season without ANY returning players was horrible (Naonka.. anybody?). Well, Samoa was great... but that was just because of Russell really.

I am SO HAPPY to see Aras, Colton, Kat, Laura and Gervase and Tina (that's about 60% of the cast).

I am SHOCKED but still okay with Tyson and Rupert (bleah... but people will watch and if this means ratings I'M FINE WITH IT). I didn't remember Monica in One World, but bet they brought her back for Brad (her husband = NFL = ratings in someway) and hopefully getting her to take revenge against Colton.

The only cast member I'm disgusted with is Candice. Candice was useless the first time round. Candice was useless the second time round. Candice will not win the third time round. That's it. This girl get way too many chances (James ANYBODY?), is unmemorable, but gets so many chances in life! I'll rather see Francesquaaaaaa!

RC... oh my, please get RC to return one day. RC GODDESS <3

And can I say... it will be so weird to see a pair voting for each other. And this time, if a person flip... it means TWO votes. I'm guessing we are going to have loads of epic shift in alliances.

I hope you are right Jobby. I really like the look of this season. I haven't come across some of the players yet.
