Survivor: Cagayan

Survivor: Cagayan

*”Survivor” returns this February for its 28th season, with former NBA star Cliff Robinson among the 18 brand-new castaways pitted against each other in a Brains vs. Beauty vs. Brawn twist.

The CBS reality series returns to the Cagayan province of the Philippines and this season will mark the first without any returning players since 2012′s One World.

Although the contestants are split into three distinct groups, each tribe contains a player with a significant sports background. David Samson, current president of the Miami Marlins Major League Baseball team, will compete on the Brains Tribe, while Robinson, who spent the majority of his 18-year career playing for the Portland Trail Blazers, joins the Brawn Tribe. Morgan McLeod, 21, a member of the Beauty Tribe, was selected to the San Francisco 49ers cheerleading squad when she was still in high school.

A professional poker player, horse trainer, nuclear engineer and two police officers are also featured in this year’s cast.

“Survivor” premieres with a special two-hour episode on Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 8/7c on CBS.
