How have the tribes been determined?

Eighteen brand new castaways will compete in Fiji to earn the title of Sole Survivor and the $1-million dollar grand prize.

This season, the group has been divided into three tribes in an interesting way—by how others see them when it comes to their positive traits.

Six Heroes are used to being heralded for their high achievements, noble qualities, and courage: Ben Driebergen, Chrissy Hofbeck, Alan Ball, Ashley Nolan, John "JP" Hilsabeck, and Katrina Radke.

While six Healers will prove that doing good work and being kind-hearted receives gratitude: Joe Mena, Cole Medders, Mike Zahalsky, Jessica Johnston, Desiree Williams, and Roark Luskin.

And, six Hustlers are respected for their tireless work ethic and go-getter mentality: Devon Pinto, Lauren Rimmer, Patrick Bolton, Ryan Ulrich, Ali Elliott, and Simone Nguyen.

What is Jeff's take on the new crew?

Host Jeff Probst, who's been leading the show since its very first season, gives his take on the cast in this assessment leading up to the premiere.

One by one, Jeff breaks down the Survivor newbies, calling Ashley "fun to be around," Ben the "personification of a hero," and Chrissy as "one of his all-time favorite people."

What'd he have to say about the rest?

What can you expect from the challenges?

Following Jeff back to the island is Challenge Producer John Kirhoffer, the visionary behind Survivor's amazing—and cutthroat—challenges.

There's no doubt this season will test the castaways' strength and stamina with some never-before-seen challenges.

What exactly can Survivor fans expect during the season premiere episode?

Not one second of the hour-long premiere will be wasted when one tribe earns an advantage after the game is immediately "ignited" by the season’s first challenge; plus, there will be a Super Idol that comes with a new twist.

Can't wait until Wednesday, Sept. 27 to watch Survivor? You don't have to.
