AceShowbiz - "Survivor" is giving viewers a full control over casting for the next installment. It was announced in the May 6 episode of "Survivor: Worlds Apart" that fan could choose which former and current players who will compete in the next season dubbed "Second Chance".
Thirty-two players from 30 seasons of the show are eligible to be voted by fans on cbs.com/survivorsecondchance starting Wednesday. The voting will open until Wednesday, May 20, one hour before the season 30 finale. The 20 competitors (the top 10 men and top 10 women) will be announced during the live reunion show.
Unlike the "All-Stars" edition, those who will compete in "Second Chance" have only played "Survivor" once and none of them won the $1 million prize in their first time out. Asked if that means Mike and Carolyn, who are still in contention for the current season, don't win this season, host Jeff Probst explains, "As you would expect from 'Survivor', we found a way to add a little twist, a little layer of mystery, into the 'Second Chance' voting. So the definition of 'Second Chance' is, contestants who have only played once and never won. So, that means either Mike and Carolyn both lost, or one of them could be, ultimately, ineligible."
