How is it even possible there have been 29 seasons of CBS’ Survivor and that the show’s been around for 15 years? The reality competition series remains popular, with Season 30 set to debut on February 25, 2015 featuring 18 castaways and Jeff Probst back as the host. According to the cast announcement, this season of Survivor (titled “Worlds Apart”) will be the first to divide teams up based on their backgrounds.

Season 30 will have three teams competing: White Collar, Blue Collar, and No Collar.

The White Collars (Masaya Tribe), known for making the rules, includes a corporate executive, a retail buyer and a marketing director. The Blue Collars (Escameca Tribe), known to follow the rules, consists of a postal worker, an oil driller and a contractor. The No Collars (Nargarote Tribe) boasts free spirits who are known to break the rules. This tribe consists of a coconut salesman, a sailing instructor and a YouTube sensation. 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.
