    Now that many of the cast members' names are starting to be leaked and that the premiere date was announced (9/16), I thought it's about time we began this thread.

    I'm hoping this season is better than SAS. I enjoyed it but I agree with Probst; the game is better played with strangers.

    I agree as well. While it was fun to watch some old favorites (and old people-I'd-smack), it's better with strangers. SAS didn't hold my interest as much as previous editions did.

    First news I've heard about 9. [​IMG]

    It's one of those small Pacific island nations. See here for more info.

    Rumor has it that CBS will be announcing the cast on August 16.

    There are going to be 18 contestants this season, according to a CBS promo! Which means two more episodes!

    Of course if there are two tribes as SF is reporting, that means there will be a gender imbalance...

    If it's 18 players, they could be split into 3 tribes from the onset, which would yield the same number of each gender.

    The Survivor: Vanuatu page is up at CBS.com. The season premiere will be two hours, wow.

    It sounds like it's going to be men vs. women to start the season.

    They did, it looks like they're doing it again but it's going to be 9 castaways per tribe instead of 8.

    Sorry. Tired of this guy.

    Edit to add:

    Just looked at the cast... Dolly the sheep-farmer huh? Well, she's better looking than our last animal farmer. [​IMG]

    I don't think they'll have men vs. women, there will probably be a gender imbalance. It won't really change the game.


    I want Eliza![​IMG]
