“Survivor,” which continues to “outlast” all other reality shows on TV, returns Feb. 25 for Season 30. This season, called “Survivor: Worlds Apart – White Collar vs. Blue Collar vs. No Collar,” will return to the San Juan Del Sur beach in Nicaragua, the fourth “Survivor” season to take place at the location. Jeff Probst will, of course, return to host, as 18 new contestants get ready to play “Survivor.”
