‘Survivor: One World’ Cast and Twists Revealed
Fans of back-stabbing reality shows, listen up – the cast line-up for ’Survivor: One World’ has been unveiled, as well as some deets about how things will run when the new season of the CBS show premieres on February 15.
For the first time in its 24-season history, the two opposing tribes on ‘Survivor’ will live together in the same camp. And, repeating a theme seen in the sixth season, the tribes will be split by gender, with nine men on one side and nine women on the other.
Gone this season is the controversial Redemption Island, which allowed castaways a second chance at the $1 million grand prize. So, this season when host Jeff Probst snuffs out a torch at Tribal Council, that person will be dispatched for good.
The cast includes the usual array of camera-friendly pretty faces, but there will definitely be one stand-out: 34-year-old actor Leif Manson, who’s the first little person to ever be featured on the show.
