For nine seasons “Survivor” has brought back castaways from previous years, but this time around the returnees will be bringing a little extra blood. "Survivor: Blood vs. Water" will feature family members competing to win the title of Sole Survivor. Rumors suggest that tribes will put returning contestants against their family members as they battle to become the last man standing, but are the rumors true? What do you think?
Season 27 has already begun filming in the Philippines for the third consecutive year and from the looks of the rumor mill, it's sure to be a season full of drama. Though there has been no official confirmation from CBS or Mark Burnett Productions, past castaways' names have been floating around causing quite a stir among fans of the show.
You either love him or hate him: Colton Cumbie. Either way it looks like you'll have to get used to seeing him on your TV every week. Monica Culpepper, who was on "One World" with Colton is also rumored to be competing in "Blood vs. Water." Monica has supposedly brought her husband, Brad Culpepper, who played in the NFL for nine seasons. Does this former defense tackle have what it takes to be the Sole Survivor?
Reportedly for the fourth time Rupert Boneham will be returning to "Survivor" along with his wife, Laura Boneham. Maybe Rupert will get further than 4th place this time. Another repeat player, Tyson Apostol, will bring his girlfriend to compete against him and the other family members in the Philippines.
Fan favorite, Kat Edorssen is bringing her boyfriend Hayden Moss to the Philippines. Hayden is no stranger to reality competitions since he was a player in "Big Brother" and won their 12th season. Will having already participated in a reality show give Hayden an edge against the other family members?
Aras Baskauskas ("Panama"), Gervase Peterson ("Borneo"), Laura Morett ("Samoa") and Tina Wesson ("Australian Outback" and "All-Stars") are also said to be currently filming the next season of "Survivor" on the island of Palaui in the Philippines.
Has "Survivor" run its course or are fans still excited to watch castaways live on an island and compete in different challenges to win a grand prize? Luckily for the cast and crew it looks like viewers still want more as rumors for a 28th season have already begun to swirl.
