For Survivor's 16th season, Jeff Probst is shaking things up a little. This cast is made up of fans vs. favorites, so it's viewers who are obsessed with contestants from past seasons, and the two teams compete against each other.
It takes place in Micronesia, which I had to look up on google maps, and it had a bunch of arrows with Amelia Earhart's flight plan, which, if I'm not mistaken, didn't pan out so well for her….Here are the names and pics of the contestants for this season so you can get all up to date.
