'Survivor' 46 Cast: Meet the 18 Castaways Competing — Photos

Following an exciting and very well-received 45th season of “Survivor,” the Emmy-nominated competition series is back for Season 46 — as are the 90-minute episodes.

On Monday, CBS announced the cast for the upcoming season, debuting with a two-hour premiere on Wednesday, Feb. 28 and a two-hour second episode on Wednesday, March 6. The duration of the season will be made up of 90-minute episodes, which will also stream on Paramount+.

Once again taking place in Fiji, host Jeff Probst will guide 18 determined players, all vying for the $1 million grand prize and the title of Sole Survivor.

“The participants will be divided into three tribes of six and endure a faster, more intense season from the moment they step foot on the beach,” CBS said in a press release. “The moral dilemmas, extreme situations and new twists in the game will test even the strongest competitor, and the mental and physical challenges require players to masterfully evolve their strategies to survive another day.”

Meet the full cast below.
