For Survivor's 26th season, the CBS reality mainstay will once again return to the beaches of the Philippines and resurrect the Fans vs. Favorites format pitting 10 veterans of the game against 10 fresh-faced newbies.


The returning players include Redemption Island's alleged "secret agent" Phillip Sheppard, Harvard whiz-kid/superfan John Cochran and Russell Hantz's nephew Brandon, who struggled with his faith during his original South Pacific season. As they vie for another shot at the million dollar grand prize, a new batch of fans including a race car driver, BMX bike salesman and Iraq War veteran stand in their way.


Here's the complete list of new and returning castaways. Survivor: Caramoan premieres Wednesday, February 13 at 8/7c on CBS.
