CBS scooped itself with the revelation of the “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains” cast at the People’s Choice Awards Wednesday night (Jan. 6).

The official-official announcement wasn’t supposed to happen until Saturday at a 10th-anniversary party for the series, but anyone with a DVR and a reasonably good knowledge of “Survivor” history could see all 20 participants in a preview shown at the awards. The cast pretty well matches what spoiler sites have been saying for a while now — and our own speculation based on the trailer shown during the “Survivor: Samoa” reunion appears to have uncovered a few red herrings.

The most notable absence is probably Jon “Jonny Fairplay” Dalton, who’s one of the all-time “Survivor” bad guys but may have worn out his welcome with the show.

Here’s the full list:


  • Rupert Boneham, “Survivor: Pearl Islands” and “All-Stars”
  • James Clement, “China” and “Fans vs. Favorites”
  • Colby Donaldson, “Australian Outback” and “All-Stars”
  • Cirie Fields, “Panama” and “Fans vs. Favorites”
  • Amanda Kimmel, “China” and “Fans vs. Favorites”
  • Jessica “Sugar” Kiper, “Gabon”
  • Stephenie LaGrossa, “Palau” and “Guatemala”
  • James “JT” Thomas, “Tocantins”
  • Tom Westman, “Palau”
  • Candice Woodcock, “Cook Islands”


  • Tyson Apostol, “Tocantins”
  • Randy Bailey, “Gabon”
  • Sandra Diaz-Twine, “Pearl Islands”
  • Danielle DiLorenzo, “Panama”
  • Russell Hantz, “Samoa”
  • Jerri Manthey, “Australian Outback” and “All-Stars”
  • Rob Mariano, “Marqeusas” and “All-Stars”
  • Parvati Shallow, “Cook Islands” and “Fans vs. Favorites”
  • Ben “Coach” Wade, “Tocantins”
  • Courtney Yates, “China”
