Meet The Survivor: Blood Vs. Water Castaways!

For the first time in history, CBS’s Survivor is back in the Philippines for its third season in a row!  Weirdly titled Blood Vs. Water, the 27th season of Survivor is bringing back previous castaways, but this time, they will be paired and ultimately competing with a family member or a loved one!

Just a bit of trivia: this is not the first time that Survivor has done a couples format.  It was actually the Philippine version of Survivor (Survivor Philippines: Celebrity Double Showdown) who first did the said format.

So who are the returning players playing again for the title of Sole Survivor?  Let’s check them all out and see and meet their loved ones!

So what do you guys think about the returning players?  For me, I think it’s quite an interesting bunch, but I think I am a bit tiresome of seeing Rupert play for what, four times already?  Don’t get me wrong, I love the guy, but I think they should have given the spot to someone else.  As for Colton, that bitchy self-centered racist, I really do hope that he has learned his lesson and be mature enough to play for another round.  And there’s Gervase!  I am a die-hard fan of the show and seeing someone from the original season really excites me and I hope he goes far!
