18 castaways will compete against each other on “Survivor” when the Emmy Award-winning series returns on Wednesdays on CBS. This edition of “Survivor,” filmed in Cagayan, a province in the Philippines, will be themed “Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty.” The groupings of these tribes, each comprised of six castaways, reflect the distinguishing qualities that people bring to the game and test whether there is any truth to the preconceived notion that that certain characteristics will help you win the game of “Survivor.” All castaways will compete to outwit, outplay, outlast, and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor. The show is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst.
