Survivor Season 43 Premieres 9/21/22



Bowing Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8/7c with a two-hour premiere, Survivor Season 43 will see 18 new players stranded on the beautiful islands of Fiji. “These determined castaways require strong social skills, strategic acumen and physical endurance,” per CBS. “They will be divided into three tribes of six and face a faster, more extreme season from the moment they step on the beach. The moral dilemmas and unpredictable situations will test even the strongest competitor, as food is scarce, rewards and supplies are minimal, and the mental and physical challenges require players to make impossible decisions and adjust their strategies every day.

The Eye network stresses that the individuals competing are from “diverse backgrounds and bring a fresh perspective to this new era of the game, with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast. And in the end, only one will remain to claim the title of Sole Survivor and win the $1 million prize.” https://tvline.com/lists/survivor-se...s-bios-videos/

So what's the premise for this season? I dropped out of 42 about 3/4 of the way through because it was such a boring cast (and my contestant was eliminated already).

This is from TVLine: "Bowing Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8/7c with a two-hour premiere, Survivor Season 43 will see 18 new players stranded on the beautiful islands of Fiji. “These determined castaways require strong social skills, strategic acumen and physical endurance,” per CBS. “They will be divided into three tribes of six and face a faster, more extreme season from the moment they step on the beach.

So in other words, exactly the same as the last two seasons, except maybe a reunion in the United States?

Re: Survivor Season 43 Premieres 9/21/22

I was not a big fan of the changes in the last few seasons. Took the fun out of it for me. I really can't see how 'come on in guys' became controversial. So is the above the full cast or might there be surprises from "returning stars" being dropped on the beach as well?

At least no Canadians this season.

Is that woman's leg waterproof? Or will she have to remove it for water challenges?

Not sure, but here’s an interesting article from the US Lacrosse team that she was a part of (she lost part of her left leg from a moped accident):

I think Chad (Vanuatu) and Kelly (Nicaragua) swam with their’s, didn’t they?

Oh, wow. I had completely forgotten there have been previous contestants with artificial legs.

If you told me Sami was 35, I'd believe you... but 19?? No way.

from now on I'll consider this as code for we had to make sure we had a diverse cast so we gave that priority over choosing people who might actually be interesting to watch so sorry for the boring season!

I'm already sick of this "get to know the players" BS. Get to the game!

These two-hour premieres are ridiculous, too much padding.

I think they did a poor job of showing why the 1st boot was voted off. The girl getting the narrative lead insisted she wanted her out to keep the tribe strong......but what we saw in the challenge Gabler and the young guy were arguing on the puzzle and the asian girl got stuck in the sand.
