Survivor 30: Meet the New Castaways

Survivor Season 30 Cast

Survivor is celebrating its 15th year — and 30th season! — by igniting a collar war.

CBS on Wednesday revealed a crop of 18 new castaways, divided into three tribes: Masaya (white collar), Escameca (blue collar) and Nargarote (no collar).

To get more specific, the contestants’ jobs range from corporate executive (white collar) to coconut vendor to YouTube sensation, both of which qualify as “no collar.”

Per CBS, “these three tribes will have very different approaches to how they play the game and interact with each other, while sharing the same goal: to outwit, outplay, outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor and winner of the $1 million dollar prize.”

The new season of Survivor kicks off Wednesday, Feb. 25 at 8/7c with a 90-minute special.

    Wow what a diverse cast!!! *rolls eyes*

    • Tim says:

      yeah, there are usually only 3.5 minorities

      Oh, please, will you all please jump off that train? Diversity for the sake of diversity isn’t really diversity at all. I enjoy ‘Survivor,’ which means I will watch it if they cast 20 white people, 20 black people, 20 Asians, 20 gay people, 20 straight people, or any combination thereof. If you require a quota before you can watch a program, then maybe it’s you that has the issue.

    You scared the crap out of me. When you said “youtube sensation” my mind went to Frankie Grande from CBS Big Brother……OMFG I’m sooooo glad it’s NOT him. I may have been forced to sit out a season and I’ve never missed an episode.

    And what the hell is a Coconut Vendor??

    What exactly makes someone a “you tube” sensation? Is that actually his career?

    They have a strict , “no more than two people with melanin each season” . The problem with this show , just like many others with a token person of color is that it puts them in vulnerable position . They are “fair” game for an elimination.This is a terrible predicament .A darker person who wins this show defies virtually all odds 1 in 20 chances of winning with the white ones 19/20 and they are fairly represented by gender , body types , personalities etc …

    People when there is no human variety , the sole person with darker skin will always be judged harshly by others.

    The other 2 minorities chicas are the type of minorities while males know are safe .Plus they are female.

      That’s just ridiculous. Twas only two seasons ago they had Tash, J’Tia, Cliff and Brice. Admittedly, african americans are under par in their win rate. But that has nothing to do with their race. Just look at the different games played by, say, Earl and Special Agent Philip Shepherd for evidence of what actually wins you games.
