Logo for Survivor: Cagayan

Survivor: Cagayan, also known as Survivor: Cagayan - Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty is 28th season of the CBS reality show Survivor and the ninth season of coverage from RHAP. It features eighteen new players divided into three tribes of six based on a dominant attribute, either athleticism, intelligence, or attractiveness.[1]


The coverage for Cagayan began in January 2014. Though the cast had not yet been revealed, Rob and reporter Gordon Holmes cast their own hypothetical Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty season from previous contestants.[2] The pre-season coverage featured a cast preview from both Rob and Nicole and Corinne Kaplan, whereas it has alternated between the two for previous seasons, along with the Bloggers Roundtable from the previous season. Survivor Know-it-Alls and the exit interviews for eliminated contestants returned this season.
