"Survivor: Caramoan" premieres on Feb. 13, 2013, but not much is known about the cast of 10 newbies that will be competing against the 10 favorites. On Feb. 8, 2013, Jeff Probst gave Entertainment Weekly some additional information about the 10 new survivors.
The Caramoan Islands are in the Philippines very close to season 25's location. 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 10 "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 newbies cast list can be found here. It includes pictures and details about the 2013 "Survivor" castaways from the "Gota" tribe.
