Are You Excited for the Next Survivor?

Survivor: Gabon, the 17th edition of the stalwart Survivor series, premieres Sept. 25, and today CBS revealed the 18 castaways who will — in the network's words — "embark on an amazing African adventure, battling extreme conditions and interacting with wildlife such as elephants and gorillas while attempting to forge alliances with strangers from diverse backgrounds."

It's actually a pretty interesting group: An actress who was briefly on Gilmore Girls is in there, as is an Olympic gold medalist and a professional gamer. According to host Jeff Probst, there's a pretty strong good vs. evil theme this season. Also, the show will be shot in HD for the first time, meaning that even if the contestants are obnoxious, the backdrop will look beautiful (at least for those with HD screens).

Every year, I'm a little surprised when Survivor returns, and yet it keeps holding its own in the ratings. Check out the video introducing the contestants, and then let me know: Will you be watching this voyage to "Earth's last eden"?

I only watched the first two season, since then I haven't tuned in for even a peek. I do know my parents are still avid watchers, but they don't like change. :-D

I, too, am a huge fan. Hooked since the last 3 episodes of the first season!

it's funny - i've never watched survivor in the past and i think that i might tune into see how they adapt to the area - but that's probably it. i am also intrigued that there's a GG actress in the mix - that i have to check out cause you never know how well she'll manage.

Lost interest after the third season. My husband LOVES it, b/c he just started watching it a couple years ago.

I haven't watched this show in YEARS. And that girl who was on Gilmore Girls played Jess' onetime girlfriend, Shane. She seems a lot like her character.
