I am hearing more and more chatter that Season 25 of Survivor will be another All Star type season with many favorites already being asked about if they would be interested in coming back. Season 23 which is the South Pacific version already has Coach and Ozzie coming back, while season 24 is looking like it will be a completely fresh cast. Season 25 than will be another All Star game with a possible Heroes VS Villains II being discussed. Obviously the bold number that is 25 makes sense for this to be another All Star season and the ratings are always big when it comes to these formats so look for it to take place. With that in mind, here are the names I came up with who I think has to be on that season. As always offer up your choices in the comments below.


Russell Hantz: You and I both know Russell will be back. He is like Freddy Krueger in that you cant get rid of the guy and he continues to come back and haunt us. Now that Hantz has been humbled in Survivor Redemption Island, it will be interesting how he is received this time around and whether he finally changes up his game.

Marty Piombo: Survivor Nicaragua was one of the very worst seasons ever but Marty was a rare bright spot in that game. He was annoying as hell to listen to but Marty had a very keen strategic game that would work well with more experienced players. And he would be someone who would have no problem working with Russell which Mark Burnett has to look at before he brings Russell back again.

Matt Eldrod: Matt got screwed in Redemption Island as he never really got a chance to play due to Rob Mariano booting him twice. Surely he will be more prepared this time around and he was a very popular player who will bring eyeballs to the tube.

Rob Cesternino: As much as I couldnt stand Rob C, the guy has some serious game and deserves to play again. I have no problem with the Best Player Never To Have Won label and he is another person who would work well with Russell. Heroes VS Villains II with Russell, Marty, and Rob C together? Think of the possibilities.

Tom Westman: My all-time favorite Survivor player, Long Island's own got a raw deal himself in Heroes VS. Villains and he could have done so much better if given a chance. I dont think he would come back though as he has been on record saying this. Wishful thinking.

Todd Herzog: One guy I KNOW they have spoken to is little Todd who was one of the more surprising Survivor winners. For such a dimunitive guy, Todd had the game under his thumb and proved he can play with the big guys. Look for a return soon.

Ethan Zohn: Talk about an inspirational story. Ethan beat cancer and you know he would love to earn some more dough for his soccer charity in Africa. I dont think anyone has been loved more on Survivor.

Rupert Boneham: Right behind Ethan in lovable meter is Rupert who could also love to win some more money for his charity. Rupert is fun to watch and even though he is aging, he deserves another chance to finally nail down a victory.


Brenda: Other than Marty in Nicaragua, Brenda was a big time strategist who was also a great athlete in challenges. She reminds me so much of Parvati and would also be a potential villain candidate.

Cirie Fields: Cirie is another one who has been talked to supposedly about coming back. She seems like a logical choice.

Jane Bright: Jane VS. Marty II would be a nice subplot to this season and she proved herself big time in challenges during her stay in Nicaragua.

Andre Boehlke: She has a thing for Matt and she also was a big time athlete. She seemed right at home in the outdoors and I think she was underutilized by Burnett as far as coverage was concerned.

Jerri Manthey: Get her back one more time to see if she can finally get over the hump. Like with Rob, Jerri has become more popular as the show has gone on.

Kelly Wigglesworth: Surprising that she hasnt come back after her big showing in the debut season. She is obvoiusly much older now but she was very young the first time around.

Jenna Morasca: She had to leave after feeling her mom was close to death which she was in All Stars. As a former champ, we never got to see what she could do in defense of that title.

Sandra-Diaz Twine: She deserves to come back every time until she finally gets beat. Would love to see how the others treat her this time around.

Thats how I see it. Post below who else you would like to see in this season. It is happening.


  1. You know if there was this season that is the same boring over used cast ever. Take out everyone except Marty, Matt, Todd, Brenda and Andrea and throw in some players that have not been recycled over and over.

  2. If i could have it my way, now more people would be allowed to repeat that already have and for at least 5 seasons we see new faces then maybe for a 30th season we have a web based FAN vote to let the online community determine the cast. i'm sick of seeing repeats, give some new people a chance to make a name for themselves.
