Survivor host Jeff Probst announced the identities of the 20 castaways -- 10 men and 10 women -- who will compete on this fall's 31st Survivor edition, which will be called Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance, during Wednesday night's finale broadcast of Survivor: Worlds Apart.
In a Survivor first, the cast was determined entirely by online voting by home viewers, who were able to select from 32 candidates -- 16 men and 16 women from Season 1 through Season 30 -- during a two-week period which ended last night.
In keeping with the season's "Second Chance" theme, all 32 candidates were castaways who only previously competed on Survivor once and failed to walk away as their season's winner.
"The idea of a 'Second Chance' season started brewing during our first season, the moment Kelly Wiglesworth lost to Richard Hatch, in the summer of 2000," Probst had explained earlier this month.
"Since their respective seasons ended, these players have been begging for another shot, and this is a fun way to allow our loyal fans to be involved in the creative process."
Probst revealed the voting results during Survivor: Worlds Apart's live reunion show as all 32 candidates sat in the audience with their suitcases ready to go.
The 10 men who will be returning to compete on Survivor Cambodia when it airs this fall are:
