Survivor is the most anticipated show on CBS and is all set to premiere its new season. This time, the competition will take place on the islands of Fiji.
The network recently announced the release date of the reality show. Survivor will kickstart with a two-hour premiere episode on Wednesday, September 22 at 8 pm (ET) on CBS.
Last season celebrated the 20th anniversary of the show and it had pit 20 Survivor alums against each other. However, the upcoming season’s format is back to basics, meaning contestants will be a group of strangers.
The official synopsis of Survivor reads:
“A reality show where a group of contestants are stranded in a remote location with little more than the clothes on their back. The lone survivor of this contest takes home a million dollars.”
Jeff Probst returns as Survivor host
The four-time Emmy Awards winner, Jeff Probst, will take charge as the host of Survivor Season 41. To add a new element to the reality show, Probst will involve viewers inside the action this time. He will reportedly unveil new twists and challenges to fans before letting the contestants know.
And “Game within the Game” will also be conducted for the fans who will have to spot puzzles within the episodes and solve it.
Speaking about the participants of this season, Probst said:
“SURVIVOR 41 features a really likable group of savvy SURVIVOR players, and they are in for the most intense, most difficult and most dangerous season we've ever done.”
Who are the 18 contestants?
CBS has revealed the names of all 18 castaways who will be competing this fall. Belonging from various different professions and lifestyles, the contestants have the potential to strive in this game.
Ex-NFL player Danny McCray, neurosurgeon David Voce, communications manager Erika Casupanan, college student Liana Wallace, research scientist Evvie Jagoda and pastor Shantel Smith are a few interesting people from different worlds who will have to stay together and fight to survive the game.
