Survivor Season 39 cast works with new theme
In addition to the 20 new castaways, Rob Mariano and Sandra Diaz-Twine will star as the mentors. Boston Rob and Sandra know what it takes to win the game and they will provide tutelage to the contestants sent their way. It will play into the theme of the season and allow those castaways to play in challenges that could reward them with advantages or punish them with disadvantages based on what they have learned.
This new Survivor twist is going to be an interesting one and it is a good change of pace for the show. It’s also the perfect thing to do before the big Survivor Season 40 premiere in the spring. For now, fans of the show get to enjoy 20 new castaways, with each of them hoping to impress Rob and Sandra in a way that helps their personal games.
Survivor airs Wednesday nights at 8/7c on CBS.
