Twenty brand new castaways are heading to Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands to outwit, outplay and outlast each other in hopes of gaining the title of Sole Survivor. They will be split in to two tribes of ten, a first since Survivor: Samoa.

They will face more challenges this season as infamous items from previous seasons will make their way in to the game, including fake idols, challenge advantages, unused hidden immunity idols, and other game changing advantages to shake things up.

Similar to Exile Island, a castaway will head to Ghost Island where they will find all 82 items and advantages around them, in hope to break their curse and stay alive in the game.

That’s a lot to take on, so let’s meet the castaways and see if they will be able to handle the challenge of Survivor: Ghost Island.

Survivor: Ghost Island premieres with two back-to-back episodes February 28th on CBS.
