Survivor is making a move to Wednesday nights premiering on September 15th and the castaways were out recording the 21st season in Nicaragua from June 13th to July 24th! The castaways were divided into 2 tribes according to their age… Young vs. Old! The Young Tribe is called La Flor Tribe and the Old tribe is called Espada Tribe.
The hottest story is that Jimmy Johnson, former NFL coach for the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins, has been cast for this season! This man is going to gain HUGE rating for CBS this season! I don’t think that he will last long due to his “big name” but what do you think?
What I have found VERY exciting is that one contestant is from right down the street from us in Topeka… Who is this? Yve Rojas from Kansas City, MO and Chicago, IL! She is an actress that I am sure is to make it far into the show! (Hopefully since she is from our neck of the woods!)
So who are the castaways? Take a look!
