Meet The ‘Survivor: Cagayan’ Castaways!

I can’t believe Survivor has been running for 28 seasons and still counting and still going strong!  Now for its 28th season, Survivor is going back YET AGAIN to the Philippines (the production has been here for 4 consecutive times already, isn’t it amazing?), but instead of bringing back past competitors, CBS has brought out 18 all-fresh and all-new batch of castaways!


In this season, three tribes of six will be grouped according to three very distinguishing characteristics: Brains, Beauty, and Brawn.  The question of the season is that, will the tribe of Brawn dominate all the challenges given their physical attributes, or will the tribe of Brains dominate and outwit the mental part of the game, or will the tribe of Beauty use their looks to master the social game?  My thoughts?  As much as I love seeing new castaways, I was expecting to see the Brains Tribe to look like real geeks, like Beauty and the Geek meets The Big Bang Theory kind of geeks, but they all look good and strong!


So without further ado, let us all meet the 18 new castaways who will be battling out for the million dollars and the title of Sole Survivor.  Look, it’s Cliff Robinson!
