The Survivor cast has been announced on Wednesday, and to the delight of fans, a number of very well-known faces will be returning to the hit CBS reality TV show.
The latest season of survivor will be called "Blood vs Water," and will feature 10 former contestants. Program creators are hoping to bring the familiar faces back to see them compete with their loved ones – hence the new title of the season. The new twist will add extra excitement to the new season, which is again sure to be a huge hit with fans of the show.
Rupert Boneham will be leading the new Survivor cast – and amazingly this will be his fourth appearance on the show, having already appeared on Pearl Islands, All-Stars, and Heroes Vs. Villains seasons.
He will be joined by his wife, Laura, in what should make for a dramatic twist for the show.
Others who will be returning include Tyson Apostol, who is known for competing in Tocantins and Heroes Vs. Villains, and he will be competing against his girlfriend Rachel Foulger.
Gervase Peterson, who featured on Survivor: Borneo, will compete with his niece Marissa.
Kat Edorsson, who appeared on Survivor: One World, will be competing with her boyfriend, Hayden Moss – who interestingly was the Big Brother winner in Season 12.
In the latest series, contestants will be voted off Redemption Island, but anyone being dispatched will have the chance to return, but only if their loved one opts to sacrifice themselves in their place. The new twist should prove exciting and dramatic for viewers, and will place some in a great dilemma. The feature was in fact also in effect in Season 22 of Survivor, but has now been brought back.

1. Tyson Apostol (Tocantins, Heroes vs. Villains) and girlfriend Rachel
