VIDEO: Survivor: Blood Vs. Water — All 20 Castaways Revealed

August 21, 2013 01:38 PM by Ryan Haidet

Although the cast of Survivor: Blood Vs. Water has been spoiled for months online, CBS has officially announced the full lineup (see video inside this article).  The 20 castaways feature 10 returning players and 10 newcomers.  The twist?  Each castaway is going into the game with a loved one to see if blood is in fact thicker than water.  Would you betray your own blood for $1 million?  The relationships vary as follows: dating couples, married couples, mother/daughter, uncle/niece, engaged and brothers.  Who is back on the beach for another shot at the title of sole Survivor?  Who is in the game for the first time?  Meet the entire cast inside this story!

Video introducing all 20 castaways:

Among the 10 veteran castaways includes Rupert Boneham, who now becomes the second player in Survivor’s 27 seasons to play the game four times (Boston Rob Mariano was the first).  There are two previous Survivor winners — Tina Wesson and Aras Baskauskas — back in the game.  And for the first time ever, a previous Big Brother star is competing on Survivor.  Yup, the rumors are true.  Hayden Moss, winner of Big Brother 12, has landed on the island to outwit, outplay and outlast.  Other castaways include one of the most-hated villains, an original contestant from the first season, a former NFL star and a few veterans you might have a tough time remembering.  The 10 veteran castaways will be teamed up on the Galang tribe (yellow).  The 10 new contestants will be placed on the Tadhana tribe (red).

It all kicks off with a 90-minute premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 18.

    I’ve watched every single Surivor… huge fan. But, when I saw Colton was on it again, I was disappointed. I hope he’s the first person voted off and his “Fiance” 2nd. What a joke.
