The cast of the next "Survivor" was released today. "Survivor: Caramoan" will be a fans vs. favorites season. The 26th installment of "Survivor" premieres Feb. 13, 2013 on CBS. The Caramoan Islands are located in the Philippines very close to where season 25 was taped. Half of the cast are past favorites from recent seasons and the other half are fans of the show.
Ten returning survivors will make up the "Bikal" tribe. All ten "Favorites" were on recent seasons of "Survivor" but none are from the show's first 15 seasons. Playing against them will be the "Gota" tribe which consists of all newbies who are fans of the show. The group of newbies include Miss Missouri 2011, a firefighter, a female racecar driver and an Iraq war veteran.
