Though reality television as a genre has often been derided by critics in the media, it remains more popular than ever among average television viewers. So what better place for the daddy of all reality shows to debut their next season than 'The People's Choice Awards?'

Yes, according to none other than Jeff Probst himself, 'Survivor' will be airing a special sneak preview of its upcoming 20th season, 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,' during tomorrow's 'People's Choice Awards' broadcast. Probst broke the news via his new twitter feed, opting to forgo his usual communication methods of tree-mail and hand scrawled messages floated out to sea inside an old bottle.Though reality television as a genre has often been derided by critics in the media, it remains more popular than ever among average television viewers.

Yes, according to none other than Jeff Probst himself, 'Survivor' will be airing a special sneak preview of its upcoming 20th season, 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,' during tomorrow's 'People's Choice Awards' broadcast. Probst broke the news via his new twitter feed, opting to forgo his usual communication methods of tree-mail and hand scrawled messages floated out to sea inside an old bottle.

"Survivor Fans. Watch Peoples Choice Awards this Wednesday Jan 6th," Probst tweeted on Sunday. "We're showing sneak peak of first few minutes of ep 1 Heroes V Villains"

'Heroes vs. Villains' marks the third time the series has featured returning contestants, following season 8's 'Survivor: All-Stars' and season 16's 'Survivor Micronesia: Fans vs. Favorites.' Among the rumored lineup include the evil mastermind of season 19, Russell Hantz, as well as perennial contestants Rupert Boneham, James Clement, Colby Donaldson, Cirie Fields, Amanda Kimmel, Stephenie LaGrossa, Jerri Matheny, "Boston" Rob Mariano and Parvati Shallow.

Notably absent from the series will be first season winner Richard Hatch, whose request to participate was denied by a judge in Rhode Island, where Hatch remains under house arrest following years of legal disputes stemming from his 'Survivor' winnings.

But the biggest question hanging over everyone's heads this season is whether it will be the last for Probst or 'Survivor' as a whole, as the angular host has yet to renew his contract beyond this season. We eagerly await his next tweet to learn whether or not his torch will finally be snuffed out.
