CBS Announces ‘Survivor’ Season 35 Contestants

CBS announced the 18 contestants for Season 35 of “Survivor” on Wednesday.

The theme for the season will be “Heroes v. Healers. v. Hustlers.” The 18 contestants will be divided into three teams of six competitors each based upon how they are perceived by others. Heroes are used to being heralded for their achievements, healers receive gratitude for their work and hustlers must earn respect from others. The contestants will compete in challenges in order to outwit, outplay, and outlast the others to become the Sole Survivor and win $1 million dollars.
