1. There will be a bartender from Los Angeles.
2. Someone has a past in beauty pageants.
3. There is some sort of former athlete out to prove that they “still got it.”
Therefore, we can’t help but wince a little bit at the group that has just been announced for “Survivor: Philippines.” They are really just not that exciting in that so many of them are personalities that we have seen before — outside of a few interesting professions like a sex therapist and a tire repairman. Hopefully, the contestants will stand out a little more once we know more about them. We do love the beautiful setting of the Philippines for this season, though, and the twist is an interesting one even though we hate returning players at this point — three castaways return to the game who previously left due to injury. (These names have been out there for months — but since they have not been confirmed, you can check them out over here.)

As we do with every other “Survivor” season, we’re going to have more coverage of the cast in the days and weeks ahead — including spotlights for each person and theories about how they will fare in the game. Even though the casting may occasionally be annoying, we have to say that there is still nothing that gets us quite this excited on TV.
