PostSubject: Survivor 34: Game Changers - Cast Reveal   February 8th 2017, 3:13 pm

Quote :
The full cast list for Survivor: Game Changers has finally been officially revealed. Twenty returning players will be doing battle for the title of Sole Survivor and the million-dollar prize that comes with it.

Host Jeff Probst had previously announced eight of the competing players — Sandra Diaz-Twine, Tony Vlachos, Cirie Fields, Ozzy Lusth, Ciera Easton, Tai Trang, Caleb Reynolds, and Michaela Bradshaw — at the end of the Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X reunion show, but now we have the complete set. Sandra and Tony will not be the only previous winners to appear, as Tocantins champ J.T. Thomas will also be on the island. Meanwhile, Michaela is not the only Millennial who returned to the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji just a few short weeks after her first outing to film back-to-back seasons, as Zeke Smith also pulled double duty, bringing his mustache and wonderfully tacky shirt collection with him.

Rounding out the cast are Andrea Boehlke, Malcolm Freberg, and Jeff Varner (all appearing for the third time), as well as two-timers Aubry Bracco, Brad Culpepper, Sierra Dawn-Thomas, Hali Ford, Sarah Lacina, Troyzan Robertson, and Debbie Wanner. (Cirie and Ozzy now join Boston Rob Mariano and Rupert Boneham as the only players to compete on four different seasons.)

Probst told EW on location during filming the thinking behind the Game Changers twist: “The last few years we’ve had so many new players that were good players, and the game has continued to escalate in terms of the level of gameplay that it suddenly became apparent that we actually have a lot of great game players,” says Probst. “And so we’ve had this abundance of players now, and we felt like we had enough where we could go old school with a guy like [Jeff] Varner and Sandra and Cirie, and also go as recently as Millennials vs. Gen X with somebody like Zeke or Michaela. It just felt right. And I love the name. I thought the name was a really good brand. It brings up questions. Some people are going to say, ‘All of these people didn’t make game changing moves.’ No, they didn’t. But they were willing to make a move that might change the game. And if you’ve ever played Survivor, you know the difference.”

Probst also spilled secrets about a big change when it comes to hidden immunity idols this season, one that could throw even veteran players for a loop. “Given that it is Game Changers, we’re going to change the game constantly. So when it comes to idols, there will be no consistency,” says the host. “Usually there’s a theme. You have to find them in a certain way or work a certain amount of effort to get it. Not this time. One might drop in your lap, one might be at Tribal, one might be at the bottom of the well, one might be at a challenge. It depends how often idols get played for how far down the list we’ll get. Because if idols are held until the end, then we won’t see anything and we’ll use them next year. But if things go well and people start playing their idols — which I think will happen — it could be a really fun and crazy adventure to watch them and what they have to do to get them.”

The good news for these contestants is that this particular adventure should not see the extreme weather of Millennials vs. Gen X (which was filmed on the same beaches), since Game Changers was filmed in June and July of 2016, traditionally the driest months of the year.

I'm so excited to see so many of them play again! I'm not happy they brought Sandra back yet again, what, winning twice wasn't enough? ugh! I think Mana physically has the best tribe.

Do you know when it starts catty?
