The first fifteen cast members for the 25th season of “Survivor” were announced by CBS this morning including former “Facts of Life” star Lisa Whelchel and 2000 National League Most Valuable Player Jeff Kent. This group of strangers will be divided into three tribes (for the first time since “Survivor: All Stars”) and be joined by three previous “Survivor” competitors who will be named at a later date.
In other “Survivor” news, in an effort to get rid of me for good, the higher-ups at Xfinity TV sent me into the snake-infested Philippines wilderness. Unfortunately for them, I returned. Fortunately for “Survivor” fans, I came back with exclusive pre-game cast interviews, behind-the-scenes tidbits, photos, and more. I’ll be cranking these out daily between now and the show’s September 19th premiere, so be sure to follow me on Twitter (@gordonholmes) for up-to-the-minute updates.
Don’t miss the premiere of “Survivor: Philippines” on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at 8 p.m. ET.
