The 20 new castaways who will be taking part in the 37th season of Survivor will include a scientist, an MMA fighter, a wrestler, a filmmaker, and a S.W.A.T. officer. The 20 competitors will be divided into two tribes that will compete in challenges on the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji.

According to CBS’s official announcement of season 37’s castaways, the theme will be “David vs. Goliath.” The David tribe is made up of castaways who’ve overcome adversity. The Goliath tribe members “tend to capitalize on their individual advantages and use it against their opponents.”

Survivor season 37 will premiere on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at 8pm ET/PT. Jeff Probst is once again handling the hosting duties and guiding the castaways through tribal councils.

“‘Goliaths’ often have visible advantages, and they capitalize on them to ensure success, whereas ‘Davids’ are often forced to rely on their secret weapons and use these advantages to overcome adversity,” explained executive producer and host Jeff Probst. “It’s two very different approaches to life, but Survivor is the great equalizer, because you never know which skill set will be most useful in this cunning game of social politics.”
