Meet the cast of Survivor: China

survivor; chinaIt's hard to believe, but next month marks the 15th installment of Survivor. This season, they're in China and the producers are getting all literary and stuff. The teams will begin in Shanghai and then go to a Buddhist temple where they will be stripped of all "worldly possessions" except the clothes on their backs. They will split into two teams and be given a copy of Sun Tzu's The Art of War, which will apparently come in handy this season.

Today, CBS introduced the new 16-member cast. You can't tell much about their personalities from the general biographical information given out, but there are a few stand-outs already. For instance, there's a grave digger, a chicken farmer (whose name is 'Chicken'), a Christian talk radio host, a professional wrestler (Ashley Massaro), and a hiking guide from Kalispell, Montana. Okay, that last one is only interesting to me because she comes from my hometown. You can read more about the castaways here.

Survivor: China debuts on CBS at 8 pm on September 20th.

Oh gawd stop the race arguing.

50% of all US citizens are over 40 years old. Where are all the OLD people on this show?

Get over yourselves. At least they aren't ALL white. Next thing you start demanding there need to be gay people in a certain amount as well as christians as well as buddhists.

Which reminds me: I sincerely hope we have enough Jews on the program as well as muslims. All according to the last census.

David, what are you looking at? There are three, maybe four people that are black. Looks like the percentages of America. But so what!

Steve, what are you??? Ashley Massaro is hotter than ANYTHING, you'd be able to get. j/k

During season 13 (?) -- the racial separation season -- the producers harped on the lack of diversity among contestant applications. Now look at this coming season's lineup -- it's two asians and two blacks, and the rest are all as white as can be.

It would surprise me if the contestants weren't reading "The Art of War" before heading out for the show anyway.
