“Survivor” barrels ahead into its 32nd season this February, and today it has made its cast official. 18 all-new players will compete on “Survivor: Kaoh Rong: Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty,” the second edition of the “B vs. B vs. B” format and the 2nd straight season to air that was shot in Cambodia. As you may recall, this season was actually shot prior to last season, despite airing out of order (the first time that has been done). And if the preview at last December’s Live Reunion Show was any indication, this is going to be one of the most brutal, physical seasons of Survivor ever.

In addition to the harsh conditions, where it is rumored that there is more than one medical evacuation this season, Season 32 will also feature a “super idol” twist, where hidden Individual Immunity Idols can be combined into one “super idol” which allows it to be played AFTER the votes are read at Tribal Council. More details, I’m sure, will follow as we get closer to the premiere.
“Survivor: Kaoh Rong” will premiere with a 90-minute episode on Wednesday, Feb 17 at 8 p.m., on CBS. Make sure to subscribe to this column (above) and get email alerts every time a new article posts. Once again (like always), I’ll be covering the entire season with weekly episode previews, full recaps and analysis, and exclusive exit interviews with each voted-out (or medically evacuated) contestant.
