Cast Revealed! See Who Will Compete on Season 38 Of Survivor: Edge of Extinction

Less than three weeks (!!!) away from the two-hour Premiere, the cast of the upcoming Survivor: Edge of Extinction was officially announced today by CBS. The show’s 38th season will kick-off on Wednesday, Feb. 20th. There will be 18 contestants vying for the million-dollar prize and title of Sole Survivor.

Survivor is coming off one of its most successful and best seasons in years. Survivor: David vs. Goliath was universally praised as a Top-5 all-time season. Can “Edge of Extinction” build on the show’s momentum. Or is it bound to deflate a bit? Let’s dive into what we know about Season 38 thus far, and let’s meet the cast!

Celebrity Big Brother Episode 5 and 6 Recap: Another One Bites The Dust

These episodes of Celebrity Big Brother are coming so quickly and often, it’s hard to keep track! The season itself could be described as “fast and furious.” But, a new power-alliance of four that was formed last night, it might just be “slow and steady wins the race.”

As I always state up-front – and much like my Survivor column for this very same outlet – what I plan to bring you this season isn’t exactly a blow-by-blow “recap” of the show, but rather my thoughts, analysis, and reaction to the episode (or episodes) that we just witnessed. In other words, I’ll assume that you’ve seen the episode(s) each time. So please, please, PLEASE, if you do not want to have the show spoiled, don’t read any further until you’ve seen the episode(s)! This article focuses on the Celebrity Big Brother episodes that aired on Sunday, January 27th and Monday, January 28th.

Celebrity Big Brother Week 1 Recap: You’ve Just Been ‘Mooched’

So how much is too much Celebrity Big Brother? CBS asked that question this past week with FOUR new episodes to kick-off its 2nd season! The celebrity edition is definitely more of a sprint than the marathon in comparison to the “normal” Big Brother show. Still, through its first week, Celebrity Big Brother has absolutely lived up to the show’s motto: “Expect the unexpected.” Let’s dive into the highlights and my reaction to the show now that we’ve witnessed the first elimination episode of Season 2!

Celebrity Big Brother Premiere Recap: Expect The Unexpected!

As Joey Lawrence would say, “Woah!” The second-ever American version of Celebrity Big Brother kicked off last night with the first half of a two-night premiere. The second half airs tonight. It served mainly as an introductory episode: To the house, to the game and to the 12 “celebrities” that will compete for the $250,000 grand prize. I am ecstatic to be bringing you “recaps” of Celebrity Big Brother this season and I for one feel like we’re off to a very interesting start!

So why were the words “celebrities” and “recaps” put in quotes, you might ask? Well, that’s because it would be hard not to notice that the 12 contestants this season are not exactly…how shall I say…household names. How do you know you’re not a celebrity? Well for one, you find yourself competing on Celebrity Big Brother, for a cash grand prize and not for your favorite charity. In the same vein – and much like my Survivor column for this very same outlet – what I plan to bring you this season isn’t exactly a blow-by-blow “recap” of the show, but rather my thoughts, analysis, and reaction to the episode (or episodes) that we just witnessed. In other words, I’ll assume that you’ve seen the episode(s) each time, so please, please, PLEASE, if you do not want to have the show spoiled, don’t read any further until you’ve seen the episode(s)!

No season of Survivor would be complete if we didn’t compile the all-time list of winners each season. With 37 seasons now in the rear-view, we just witnessed Nick Wilson, the 27-year-old public defender from Williamsburg, Kentucky, becoming the latest person to win Survivor…but where does this sit on the all-time list?

All 36 people who won Survivor obviously did something right in their season to have won. So this ranking is based on three things, and it’s quite simple: How the person played the game – their particular winning season – according to Survivor’s moniker of “Outwit,” “Outplay,” “Outlast.” Read on in order to see the Top Survivor Winners of All-Time and where Nick ultimately ranks.

Exclusive Survivor: David vs. Goliath Interviews with the Winner and Final Six

Season 37 of Survivor is now officially in the books. It was a great finish to a great season.

Survivor: David vs. Goliath Finale and Reunion Show Recap: And The Winner Is…

Just like John “The Mayor of Slam-Town” Hennigan told us from the jury tonight: It’s not necessarily how well you fought, it’s sometimes about that big, memorable finish. As one of the most universally beloved seasons of one of the most popular reality competition shows draws to a close, people were asking: Will the finale episode of Survivor: David vs. Goliath live up to the rest of the season? In other words, will the finish be as good as the fight?

Anyone watching tonight’s Survivor Finale and Live Reunion Show that followed knows that we were treated with something special this season. The ending did not disappoint. 37 (!) seasons now in the books, and this show is still firing on all cylinders. This is based on the strength of its cast and on the producer’s willingness to evolve. Not every new twist works, but when you match a great cast with a great theme, sometimes sparks fly. Or in Kara‘s case tonight, sometimes they don’t.

Before we dive in, as I do at the beginning of every Recap, please heed the following: Remember that this recap assumes that you have already seen this week’s Survivor: David vs. Goliath Finale. So if you have not and don’t want to be spoiled, please come back later! It’s important to add too that while we WILL hit on all of the important developments of the episode. This is not a linear “blow-by-blow” recap, and is more of a discussion and reaction of what we just witnessed together.
