Ex-Survivor champions “Boston” Rob Mariano and (two-time winner) Sandra Diaz-Twine are back for Season 39 of the long-running reality show -but not as expected.
Neither will be in the running for the $1M prize in a series titled Survivor: Island of the Idols but living in their own Fiji beach camp without any risk of being voted out.
As Rob tells the Hollywood Reporter: “Think of it like a Survivor boot camp or training camp, where they can come over and they can learn any kind of skill that they need. Any lesson, they can come and learn it over here. We can do anything, you know? We’ve been here over 200 days between the two of us. We can make a fire like that. We can teach them how to fish. We have everything that they would need to learn how to do any skill that it takes to survive out here.”
The 39th season is due in Spring on 9GO!
