What’s most interesting about this cast is around 37 years old. That is unheard of in reality television. The youngest age is 28 (Adam and Nick) and the oldest age is 48 (Denise). I like really like this. We don’t have to worry about silly showmances or drama because these players will be there to just play. I think we are going to be in for quite the treat.

Also back for Survivor 40 is Edge of Extinction. So every time a past winner is voted out, they will have the chance to go to the Edge of Extinction to wait for a shot at returning to the game. I don’t think any of these players will be opting to just head home, so you can expect to see your favorites pretty much all season long.

What do you think of the cast? There are some people missing that I would have liked to see return like Todd Herzog, Richard Hatch and Tina Wesson. Which winner not included in the cast would you have liked to see play again?

Survivor 40 Winners at War premieres on CBS 8 PM Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2020.
