About The Show:
CBS has today that three former Survivors - Michael Skupin, Jonathan Penner and Russell Swan - will join the 15 previously announced castaways in three separate tribes on Survivor Philippines.
The Emmy Award-winning series returns for its 25th season with a special 90-minute edition, Wednesday, Sept. 19 (8:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
After being medically evacuated from the game, these Survivor all-stars return to finish what they started and for one more chance at the million dollar prize.
Michael Skupin - Survivor Australian Outback (2001)
First-ever medical evacuation on the series due to severe burns received after passing out into a fire from smoke inhalation on Day 17.
"You don't want to leave. The longer you are here, the longer you want to stay here. And it's not even about winning as much as playing. The winning will be anti-climatic. The playing is where it is for me." - Skupin, before being airlifted off the island.
Jonathan Penner - Survivor Micronesia - Fans Vs. Favorites (2008)
Medical evacuation due to knee infection on Day 15.
"I can only recommend for the sake of his leg and his life that he leave the game now. He needs hospital treatment. It is not going to get better. It will only get worse." - Dr. Jessica Sartini, while diagnosing Penner during the game.
Russell Swan - Survivor Samoa (2009)
Medical evacuation due to dehydration on Day 15.
"It was the scariest moment I've ever had on this show. In 19 seasons, I have never been more afraid in my life of how bad things were. Russell was in terrible shape." - Jeff Probst, during the Tribal Council following Swan's evacuation.
Surrounded by water, Survivor Philippines will prominently feature marine-based challenges.
For the first time in over eight years, castaways are divided into three tribes, with the winning and second-place tribes granted immunity, while the third-place tribe heads to Tribal Council and faces an elimination.
