Survivor 43 cast, early teases revealed by CBS

Survivor 43In just a matter of a few short weeks the premiere of Survivor 43 is going to arrive on CBS — why not learn a little more about the cast right now?

Today, the network confirmed that eighteen people who are going to be a part of the season; meanwhile, they also described the season as follows in a press release:

These determined castaways require strong social skills, strategic acumen and physical endurance. They will be divided into three tribes of six and face a faster, more extreme season from the moment they step on the beach. The moral dilemmas and unpredictable situations will test even the strongest competitor, as food is scarce, rewards and supplies are minimal, and the mental and physical challenges require players to make impossible decisions and adjust their strategies every day.

We should just go ahead and say this now: We really hope there are fewer twists this season, but we probably won’t get our way with that. The show is still fun, but the post-Winners at War era has lost some of the magic with the lack of themes and having more reliance on twists to the game as opposed to the people.
