'Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers': Meet the cast

Yahoo TV

As you may have guessed from the subtitle, the upcoming 35th season of Survivor will pit three distinct personality types against each other. According to CBS’s official press release: The castaways are “divided into three groups of six based on how they are perceived by others. Heroes are used to being heralded, healers receive gratitude for their work and hustlers must earn respect. These castaways will be forced to compete against each other with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast each other in an attempt to become the Sole Survivor.” Click through to meet the players.

Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers premieres Wednesday, Sept. 27 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
