Survivor 43: Meet The 18 New Castaways!

It is Premiere Day for Survivor 43! Every season of Survivor is filled with exciting twists, exhilarating challenges, and impressive gameplay. At the heart of all of that, we have 18 castaways fighting for their chance at winning the game of Survivor. I have introduced the Baka, Coco, and Vesi tribes for Survivor 2022 separately, but let’s take a look at the cast as a whole, shall we?

Every season we have inspirational, funny, and charismatic castaways. We also get our fair share of people who don’t seem to have watched an episode of Survivor in their lives. This season, like seasons past, we will likely see a pretty healthy mix of it all!
