CBS has announced the identities of the 15 new castaways who will be competing on Survivor: Philippines, the 25th Survivor edition that will premiere Wednesday, September 19 at 8PM ET/PT with a special 90-minute episode.
As CBS previously announced, Survivor: Philippines' 18-person cast will also feature three former Survivor castaways who were medically evacuated from the game and returning for another chance to compete in the game. While network is keeping the formal announcement of the identities of the returning castaways under wraps until later this week, online reports the three returning castaways are Jonathan Penner, Michael Skupin, and Russell Swan have circulated since this spring.
In addition to the usual assortment of former beauty queens and models, Survivor: Philippines' 15 first-time castaways also includes two celebrities: Jeff Kent, a retired MLB professional baseball player who was the National League MVP in 2000 and still holds the all-time MLB record for home runs by a second baseman, and Lisa Whelchel, a former actress best known for playing Blair Warner in the 1980's sitcom The Facts of Life.
