Survivor's 18 new castaways who will be competing on Season 43 this Fall have officially been unveiled.
CBS has announced the identities of the 18 diverse castaways who will attempt to outwit, outplay and outlast each other on the islands of Fiji when Survivorpremieres its new edition with a special two-hour episode on Wednesday, September 21 at 8PM ET/PT.
"After 22 Years on television, 620 episodes, 646 contestants and 639 torch snuffs, Season 43 returns to launch a new chapter with thrilling elements that intensify the battle for the title of 'Sole Survivor,'" CBS teased.
Survivor's new castaways competing for the $1 million grand prize include a pet cremator, an elevator salesman, a heart-valve specialist, a clinical psychologist, a U.S. Paralympian, and a college admissions director.
CBS says the cast required strong social skills, strategic acumen, and physical endurance.
The castaways will be divided into three tribes of six when the game begins, and they will face a fast and extreme season with minimal supplies as well as scarce food and Rewards.
Moral dilemmas and unpredictable situations will test even the strongest of players.
Survivor, which will once again be hosted by Jeff Probst, will also be available to stream live and on demand on the CBS app and Paramount+.
Below is the list of 18 castaways appearing on Survivor 43.
