It seems like only yesterday that a new Survivor winner was crowned and awarded the coveted $1 million dollar prize. Next month CBS returns to the islands for its 24th season of the ultimate competition show in Survivor: One World.

As always the castaways will be divided into two tribes; except this time it will be a battle of the sexes! The two tribes, the Salani women’s tribe and the Manono men’s tribe, are named after islands in Samoa. Meet the 18 new castaways (below) including the wife of a former NFL player and a little person!

The network recently released a sneak peak of the upcoming season, which features plenty drama on the island as the teams battle it out to be the last man or woman standing!

Survivor: One World premieres Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
