"Survivor: Second Chance" was an epic battle of familiar faces on a mission, but a tiring one. "Survivor: Kaoh Rong" brings together 18 new competitors and with the resurrection of the "Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty" theme, perhaps a little levity. Who will win the million-dollar prize in Season 32 of the long-running CBS reality series?
The eclectic group contains an Army veteran, an emergency room doctor, a bounty hunter, a former FBI agent, a pro poker player, a super-fan and a quantitative strategist. Plus, former NBA player Scot Pollard, a champion in 2008 with the Boston Celtics during his 11-year career, is part of the cast. Then, there is Caleb Reynolds, whom fans might recognize from "Big Brother" 16.
The 18 castaways are divided up into three tribes — Brains, Brawn, and Beauty — of six players. The three tribes are listed below:
