Season 27 of “Survivor” debuts Wednesday with “Blood vs. Water.” Fans are dying to check out this season, which pits alumni players against family members. On Sept. 16 Entertainment Weekly shared a sneak peek with the first seven minutes of the new season. What “Survivor” spoilers were showcased on the big sneak peek?
“Survivor: Blood vs. Water” brings back former players from across the entire spectrum of the franchise. While some, like Rupert, have been back more than once already, others are back for their first opportunity to seize redemption. How will factoring in family members shake up the game?
Monica Culpepper brings former NFL player Brad Culpepper to play, while Colton has his boyfriend along. Rupert's wife Laura is playing, while Tina Wesson's daughter Katie is hoping for the opportunity to beat her mother. Tyson plans to “slit” the throats of the family members, while Vytas is a former drug addict hoping to prove himself to his winning brother Aras.
The preview gives a big “Survivor” spoiler in that the family pairs will get one night together on an island as the game gets under way. This is a shocker to the pairs, who didn't anticipate the game beginning this way. They have no supplies, and the elements will be brutal. As Jeff Probst teases, “It's not even day 1, but the game has already begun.”
This is a huge cast with 20 castaways, and the family component will shake things up to a great degree. Will the family members manage to stick together somehow despite being pitted against one another? It all begins Wednesday, Sept. 18 when “Survivor: Blood vs. Water” debuts on CBS.
