survivor south pacific 'Survivor: South Pacific': 2 cast members returning, Redemption Island sticks aroundFor Season 23 of “Survivor,” the granddaddy of the competition reality shows is heading out to the South Pacific. The 16 castaways will be joined by two returning cast members and they will be taking the Redemption Island twist with them.

Who do you think the returning cast members will be, “Survivor” fans? Russell and Rob facing off was a pretty of-the-moment scenario after they just finished “Heroes vs. Villains.” Will they do a similar thing by having two of the craziest contestants face off with a Coach vs. Phillip season? That would be kind of awesome.

Or maybe somebody like Matt, who was put through the wringer but came up short? Or somebody who had to leave the game due to medical reasons? We’re excited to find out.

We aren’t as thrilled about the Redemption Island twist. It was interesting, but would’ve been moreso if the people who returned to the game had done anything. Maybe that will happen the next time around?

“Survivor: South Pacific” will most likely premiere at the end of September 2011.
