It’s Thanksgiving week and we’re thankful for two things — first, the above exclusive sneak peek clip of Wednesday night’s (Nov. 27) “Survivor: Blood vs. Water” episode, which is all new (not a clip show episode).

We’re also thankful for the wonderful castaways who are still on the show that took time out of their busy schedules to tell Zap2it what they’re thankful for this year.

Tyson: “I’m thankful for my smokin’ hot girlfriend, loving family and friends and a body that won’t quit.”

Katie: “Every Thanksgiving I’m grateful for family and health and safety. This year more than ever I’m thankful for the opportunities I’ve been blessed with. Some families aren’t even guaranteed a bag of rice for their “tribe” or shelter from natural disasters such as tsunamis. Praying everyone can be grateful for something this year.”

Laura M: “I am most thankful for unconditional love. Having a faith that has shown and taught me the meaning of unconditional love. Never giving up on someone, circumstances or relationships. I am thankful that I am forgiven and loved, despite all of my mistakes. Thankful that I have never been given up on. Thankful that I have a family that never gives up on each other. Thankful for His grace!!!”

Caleb: “I am thankful to have Colton in my life…and for my family and all they do for us!”

No, I am not kidding.) I am thankful to still be in the game on ‘Survivor,’ and lastly I am thankful that so many people in the world are coming together to help those in the Philippines who have lost everything!”

Vytas: “I’m grateful for my family and friends, for the roof over my head and food in my fridge, for my health and well being. Life is good!”

Ciera: “I am thankful for my family. Sounds really cliche but it’s the truth. We have such a big family who have all been so supportive and who always have my back. I love them all so much.”

Gervase: “I’m thankful for family. From my own family to my Survivor family. No matter how good, celebrating your accomplishments or bad, being there for you when things hit the fan. Family is always there. I love my family!”

Monica: “I’m thankful for my healthy family, my free country and self-control.”

Hayden: “I am ultra-thankful for my family and friends who have supported me through the good, the bad, and the ugly. They are the reason I am the man I am today. Thank you to you all!”

Aras: “I am thankful for good health, a peaceful city and all the abundance that surrounds us.”

What are you thankful for this year, “Survivor” fans?
