"Survivor: Micronesia" Cast, Twist

Cirie Fields, Jonathan Penner, Eliza Orlins, Amanda Kimmel, Jonny Fairplay, James Clement, Parvati Shallow, Ozzy and Yau-Man Chan are the 10 castaways from the Favorites tribe, set to compete in SURVIVOR: MICRONESIA - FANS VS. FAVORITES when the sixteenth installment of the Emmy Award-winning reality series premieres Thursday, Feb. 7 (8:00 - 9:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. CBS/Monty Brinton

Former "Survivor" castaways will battle it out against former super fans of the show on "Survivor: Micronesia - Fans Vs. Favorites" premiering Feb. 7 on CBS.

On Friday the network announced the 20 castaways who will be marooned on the Rock Islands of Palau on the show's 16th installment.

"Survivor" host Jeff Probst visited The Early Show on Feb. 7, 2008 to discuss the Micronesia edition. To see the video, .

The favorites have the advantage of having played the game before, but they may be vulnerable because the fans know their strategies from having watched the show. The favorites, on the other hand, know very little about the fans.
