The Survivor 44 cast has possibly been leaked online, giving fans a look at the players who will be featured this spring.

Taking a look at the new castaways on this list, there are some interesting professions that make up this group, including a football player from Seattle, a firefighter from New York, and a TikTok star from Arizona.

Host Jeff Probst has been pushing this new season a lot on social media and in recent interviews, helping to create a lot of buzz for what’s to come.

Even the trailer that was used to tease the season looks really dramatic, with the possibility that more than one castaway will be going through a bad medical situation.

Recently, a new Survivor twist for Season 44 was revealed, and it impacted how Immunity Idols worked for these new folks.

And for any fans who didn’t already know, this season was filmed in Fiji, with the production taking place shortly after Survivor Season 43 came to an end last summer.
