It is almost time for a new season of Survivor, and the spoilers are already here. Survivor Season 35 just finished filming and so far, CBS isn’t sharing any details, but Inside Survivor was able to get a few details about the upcoming season. Jeff Probst always shares a few details on the finale, but he doesn’t give away who will be on the show and all of those details. The title of this season is going to be Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers. This does sound similar to seasons they have done in the past.
This new season of Survivor was filmed on Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands, and there are eighteen contestants this time around. They are all brand new contestants and Survivor will not be bringing back any past contestants for this season. Fans love when they bring back favorites, but they have to mix it up sometimes, and with this last season being all past contestants from Survivor it isn’t surprising that they did it this way. During the casting call for this season of Survivor, they looked for people who were currently working as teachers, firefighters, and yoga instructors. You can expect to see a few of these on the upcoming season.
Survivor Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers will remind you of when they did the blue collar and white collar teams, but it is going to be a bit different. We have seen a heroes tribe before, but when they did it last time on Survivor they brought back past contestants and this time around it will be people who are heroes in their real life jobs. Fans are used to seeing police officers, fireman and other heroes on the show, but they normally aren’t all in the same tribe working together.
Inside Survivor also shared the rumors about the cast for the upcoming season. So far, it looks like they have figured out who thirteen of the eighteen contestants will allegedly be. This includes John Paul Hilsabeck, who is a 28-year-old firefighter, and Cole Medders whose job is revealed as a wilderness field instructor. You know that both of these guys are going to know how to hold their own out in the wild on Survivor. Cole will be valuable enough that he could make it pretty far. A lot of people go on Survivor having no idea how to make a fire or shelter, but Cole should be an expert at these things. Once they get smart about him, this should put a target on his back, but it will depend on if he has a great alliance going by then if he gets sent home or not.
A few of the women that are allegedly on this season of Survivor are Ashley Nolan a lifeguard captain and Jessica Johnston who works as a nurse practitioner. Ashley should be great at the swimming competitions. So far they have five men and eight women, so you can easily assume that more men are coming out. The other men are Devon Pinto a brand ambassador, Joe Mann and Patrick Bolton, who says his job is a mover. That should mean that he is in great shape. The other women coming to Survivor are Alexandrea “Ali” Elliott, a personal assistant from Hollywood; Desiree “Desi” Williams, a therapist and professor; Katrina Radke Geery, a psychologist and therapist; Lauren Rimmer; Roark Luskin, a graduate student; and Simone Nguyen, a program associate.
