If you’d rather find out all the Survivor news as it happens on your TV screens than way in advance on your computer screen, there’s really no point you hanging around here.
Right, my fellow Survivor information seekers, what do we know already? Quite a lot, I think, although the cast list I have managed to find makes a bit of a mockery of the season title. That doesn’t mean it’s wrong, though!
Survivor 24 is named Survivor: One World and players were said to be coming from all over the planet. Well, they are coming from a few US states.
They will live on one beach but, at least initially, the two tribes will be separated by gender. The new season is set in Samoa, as the previous one was.
The reward challenge is back and Redemption Island is gone. Yes, gone, so once you’re voted off, there are no second chances; it’s goodbye.
There will also be no returning cast members so everyone will be new to us.
Now for the major Survivor 24 SPOILERS: the cast!
First, the boys:
Colton Cumbie is a 24 year old student from Monroe Alabama.
Troy Robertson (a.k.a. Troyzan) age 51 is a photographer from Miami, Florida.
Jay Byars (26) is my choice of eye candy…uh…I mean he’s a model, from South Carolina.
Michael Jefferson aged 30 is a banker from Marysville, Washington State.
Leif Manson (34) from San Diego, California, is in the entertainment industry.
Jonas Otsuji is a 35 year old sushi chef from Salt Lake City, Utah, so he could come in useful at meal times.
Matt Quinlan is a 33 year old attorney from San Francisco.
Gregory Smith is a bit of a mystery man. He doesn’t appear to have a job and people seem vague on his age (50s or 60s) so maybe he’s retired.
Bill Posley is a bit exciting. Aged 28, he’s an actor from TV, movies and commercials so some of you may recognize him.
Now bring on the girls:
Nina Acosta (51) is from Clovis, California, and works in law enforcement.
Kourtney Moon is 27, from Austin, Texas, and she’s a motorcycle mechanic.
Christina Chat (30) hails from West Hollywood and is a luxury ravel and food editor so she may find Survivor accommodation and catering a little basic.
Monica Culpepper (41) from Tampa, Florida, is the wife of former NFL player Brad Culpepper. Some reports say she is a physiotherapist.
Katrina Edorssen is a 22-year-old student from Orlando, Florida.
Alicia Rosa (24) from Chicago, Illinois, has two quite different careers if the leaks are correct. She’s a special ed teacher and a makeup artist. One may be useful on the island, the other probably wont: you make up your own minds which is which.
Kimberley Spardlin (28) own Bella Bridesmaid Boutique.
Sabrina Thompson (33) lives in Brooklyn, New York City.
Chelsea Meissner is a 26 year old medical sales rep from Charleston, South Carolina
