Jeff Probst already announced on Entertainment Weekly Radio that the next season of Survivor — subtitled Blood vs. Water — would feature returning Survivor contestants playing with (or, rather, against) their loved ones. Then, yesterday we revealed that one of those pairs would be Survivor: One World’s Kat Edorsson and her boyfriend, Big Brother season 12 winner Hayden Moss. Now the rest of the cast can be officially unveiled. And that cast will be playing in the most twist-heavy Survivor season ever.

'Big Brother' winner Hayden Moss to appear on 'Survivor: Blood vs. Water'
InsideTV Podcast: Jeff Probst reveals the big 'Survivor: Blood vs. Water' twist. Plus: Joss Whedon and Gillian Anderson!

Among the cast of Survivor: Blood vs. Water —which filmed this past May and June in the Philippines — will be a contestant from the group that started it all, as season 1 player Gervase Peterson returns to compete along with his niece Marissa. He will be joined by three million dollar winners — Tina Wesson from The Australian Outback (who will be playing with daughter Katie), Aras Baskauskas from Panama (with brother Vytas), and Rupert Boneham, who has never won in his three previous outings but did collect a million dollars as the winner of a special fan voted prize given away during the All-Stars season. He will be joined by his wife Laura.

In a surprise, the new cast also features three players from One World — which is generally considered one of the weakest Survivor seasons ever. Joining Kat will be Monica Culpepper (and husband Brad) and the controversial Colton Cumbie (and fiancé Caleb). Rounding out the cast are threepeaters Tyson Apostol (with girlfriend Rachel) and the former Candice Woodcock (now Candice Cody, with husband John), as well as Laura Morett from Samoa (with daughter Ciera).

Survivor host Jeff Probst gives credit for the loved ones concept to Survivor casting director Lynne Spillman. “It’s something she brought up for years,” Probst told EW.com. “But this year she pitched it and she said, ‘I think I can pull it off. I think I’ve found the right amount of couples.’ And once we started talking about it and talking about who would play, it went from something we thought about doing next year to something we were going to do this season. It was one of those moments were I left and went ‘Oh, everything’s different.’” As if having returning players playing against their loved ones was not a big enough twist, there are several other smaller changes, some of which could dramatically alter the way the game is played. Here they are:

GET MORE EW: Subscribe to the magazine for only 33¢ an issue!

* For the first time ever, the game will not be 39 days long, but rather 39-and-a-half days, as the couples will begin the game the night prior to day one with a new twist titled “Day Zero.” The 10 pairs will be sent out at sunset to 10 different locations to live by themselves for the night. They will then all meet up to be officially welcomed by host Jeff Probst and start the game the next morning. “The whole idea was to try and get them thinking and maybe believing that they would play as a pair,” says Probst.

* Just minutes after congregating, the returning players and their loved ones will be split into two different tribes, with the returning players making up the yellow Galang tribe and the newbies comprising the red Tadhana tribe. “Suddenly your partner becomes your adversary, your competition,” says Probst. “And that was the whole premise of Blood Vs. Water. How is that going to play out in a game where only one person can win?”

* First impressions can be key in the game like Survivor, and that will prove true here as just moments after meeting each other, each team will vote one member off their tribe. They will later be informed that these people have not been voted out of the game, but rather will be sent to Redemption Island, which makes its return after having been absent for the past three seasons. There they will battle to stay alive and reenter the game at a later point.

* Confused yet? Well, it gets even more confusing! Jeff Probst will then immediately offer each of the loved ones of the two people voted off the opportunity to trade places with them, meaning that if, say, returning player Tina is voted out of her tribe at the start, her daughter Katie can opt to take her place at Redemption Island instead, and Tina would then join the tribe of newbies.

* As mentioned, Redemption Island is back. Anyone voted out will be sent there and will then compete in a three person duel. The last place finisher in each contest is out of the game for good, while the top two remain. However, if someone’s loved one is still in the game they can take their loved one’s place before a duel. (So if, say, Monica is at Redemption Island but her husband Brad thinks he would do better at a duel involving strength, he can swap places with her, electing to do the duel while she takes his place on his tribe. They could then swap again at the next duel if it is a contest better suited to her strengths.) “That puts blood and water to the test,” says Probst. “And we’re gonna do it at every duel. So the first time early in the game, somebody may say ‘It’s just too early.” But as those duels increase and they get closer to what they think might be a merge, their strategy is going to start to change.”

* That’s not all when it comes to Redemption Island. The person who finishes first in each duel will also get to give a clue to the location of a hidden immunity idol to any person from either tribe that they choose. “There’s all these things you can do,” says Probst. “Because for a moment, even though you’re on the outest, furthest part of the game, you have a little bit of power.”

^ I agree.

RI has really made an impact this season...it is the first time I actually have REALLY enjoyed that aspect of the game.

This has been a great season so far.

I am loving the twists and turns that this season is throwing up. I laughed when Brad was voted off to RI, was so glad that Colton quit. It seems Caleb is not to be under estimated. Looking forward to next week.

Caleb is too good for Colton. Needs to dump Colton's ass after this.

Nice to see actual players for once, especially Caleb. Awesome move.

How on Earth does Caleb put up with Colton. I couldn't stand to be in the same room as Colton for 5 minutes. I think he could use some time in a mental hospital. He definitely has some serious issues imho. So glad he quit and I agree with Jeff Probst, I don't get why he was asked back in the first place. So glad Cocky-ass Brad got voted to Redemption Island. Hope Candice & John,whom I'm loving both beat his ass this week. What on Earth does Monica see in Brad?!?!?!? Is she blind or is she a bitch like him!

Sad to see Laura M go. I hope she returns from Redemption Island. I just can't stand Arass. Never liked him in EI, still don't like him.

I didn't like Aras during his first season, but I like him on this one.

I like Laura M.

Monica and Brad are so annoying to me.

I agree about Caleb and Colton. Dump Colton and get with me, Caleb!! haha. Actually, Caleb was a little too cocky last night for my liking.

Five minutes into this week's episode and Kat is driving me up the wall. What a whiny baby.

Agree that RI has some impact this year. Also like that pretty much hidden immunity idols are poison and no one wants the clues about them. Those bugged me more than RI did.

B.B. Anderson, who was the 2nd person voted out in the Original season has died. He's the second Survivor contestant who has died. The first being Jenn Lyon from Survivor: Palau.

I am liking this season also. I must admit though I barely remember Laura when she was on Survivor, I guess some folk just do not make that big of an impression. I have never been a Tina fan, was not happy when she won Survivor Australia and would not like to see her win this one. I ahve no idae who might win this one. I am staying tuned. ;)

Oh Goodness me I am so sad to hear that news. How tragic for Tina and Katie and the family. As a mother of adult kids you kind of breath a sigh of relief when they are past the teen years of driving etc but as we have seen this week with the tragic death of Paul Walker, you have to be so careful driving and if you are the passenger your life is in the driver's hands. You never know what is ahead. My sympathy to the family and friends.

This week's (12/4) Survivor was pretty damn good. Glad Gervase won Immunity, and glad Tyson found the Immunity Idol AGAIN! Tribal was WOW! Sierra showed her true colors at Tribal, Hayden showed his even more before and during Tribal. Laugh my ass off when Hayden's plan backfired and Katie drew the white rock and wen to Redemption Island. Tyson and Gervase most assuredly and deserve to be the Final 2, Prefer Tyson to win, but will be ok with Gervase winning two. Kinda scared about next week, newly discovered bitch Sierra gonna try and get bitch Monica on her and son of a bitch Hayden's side. Hopefully she won't go there. Definitely want Sierra next off.

This. I freaking love Ciera. Laura M & Ciera both said on social media that they tried to get Hayden & Caleb to vote out Tyson/Gervase, but they didn't want to work with Laura M.

I am kind of sick of everyone calling Ciera evil for turning on Tyson/Gervase. Like seriously? Was she supposed to just accept 4th place? Of course she was going to make a move. I'm just sad their plan didn't work out. At least Ciera is a given to return again down the road for another season.

I bet as they were voted out Hayden and Caleb wished they'd worked with Laura M ... why did no one like her or want to ever work with her? Obviously the woman is a physical monster, never once losing at Redemption Island. I'd hate to see her lose the last one, have Hayden go back and then get voted right back out. Which I expect (I don't know, I promise!) to happen. It's the irony of Survivor. Laura kicks ass and then loses the last one, lol. But either way, whoever comes back obviously is going right back out unless some miracle immunity win.

And I knew Monica would be weak and not flip. Maybe she's assuming she can work with whoever comes back and then that gives them three and no threat of Tyson or Gervase coming back, but she won't flip. She knew she probably should have and she could have probably won too, now she'll either win because everyone hates Tyson and Gervase so much or be roasted for being totally useless except for winning challenges, which she deserves huge kudos for.

I feel like we're seeing why Gervase and Monica probably lose to Tyson (could it be more obvious? Seriously ....), she's worthless and all he does is yell. Who would want to be around him? He doesn't get his way and he throws a temper tantrum.

Loved Ciera coming from completely behind and winning immunity! And Hayden ... I hated his worthless ass on BB but man, probably one of my favorites and I love how he wasn't rolling over and letting himself be voted out.

Hayden and Ciera have both earned welcome back passes, IMO.

And on a somber note, it's really sad watching Tina and Katie and the wonderful bond they have knowing that Tina lost her son and Katie lost her brother (and by sad I mean, just knowing that he's passed and watching them before, in the game, it's hard and makes me really love their bond). I'm glad Tina didn't roll over for her daughter though. I'm really glad they had this experience together now.

So tragic for Tina, I feel so badly for her.
