Down in one of the offices at CBS headquarters, Survivor host Jeff Probst was sitting at his desk rewatching old Survivor seasons.

He looked up at the camera, "Oh, hello there! I'm Jeff Probst. With another season just wrapping up, another season is coming around the corner. This time, we're returning back to Kattlelox Island, and bringing back the best of the best!

He then smirked, standing up from his desk, "The people we chose were players that are going to play the game. People that won't back down and do anything it takes to win the game. We have runner ups, medevacs, failed strategists, and lovable characters! I do hope you like the cast we have! Because there they are!"

Name: Josiah Shaw

Season: Yoshi Desert

Placement: 12th Place

Tribe: Tempura

Jeff's Assessment: There was zero question on whether or not to bring back Josiah. He was simply a great character, and he was one of the few fans there to actually want to play the game. He also made the best fake idol ever. He'll have to watch his step here, because one wrong move, and he's done.

– – – – –

Name: Shulk

Season: Lake Hylia

Placement: 10th Place

Tribe: Fogorote

Jeff's Assessment: During Lake Hylia, Shulk used his sword, the Monado, to his advantage. You'd think he would be an easy vote here, but he's not! He's not bringing the Monado this time around, and without his future telling powers, he believes he'll be less of a threat. We'll see how it works for him.

Name: Morrigan Aensland

Season: Kattlelox Island

Placement: Runner-Up

Tribe: Laropa

Jeff's Assessment: Morrigan started out as an outcast to the Capcom tribe, but then she managed to turn the tables around, and then became the last Capcom standing. She's devious, she's manipulative, she's everything a true villainess stands for. She could be an early target, or the one who runs the show.

Name: Vyse

Season: Kattlelox Island / Unfinished Business

Placement: 14th Place / 5th Place

Tribe: Tempura

Jeff's Assessment: Vyse came into the game to be the hero, the provider. Sega votes him off first because Reala was ready to play. The next season, Vyse returned, and became the hero he wanted to be, creating a crazy fake idol scheme to further him and Stryker. He's definitely someone to watch out for.

– – – – –

Name: Queen Sindel

Season: Edenia / Blood vs. Water

Placement: 4th Place / 8th Place

Tribe: Laropa

Jeff's Assessment: One of the most out spoken women to play the game, Sindel was somebody who controlled her tribe like a true Queen. Though in Blood vs. Water, Will stole the spotlight from her, Sindel still holds true to her word as a strong woman, and will not back down from anything.

– – – – –

Name: Dexter Morgan

Season: Aquatic Ruin / Destiny Isles

Placement: 16th Place / 8th Place

Tribe: Tempura

Jeff's Assessment: The first victim of Sweet Tooth's silent betrayal, and then later became his student in Destiny Isles, Dexter is back for one last showdown. He's definitely trustworthy, but cross him, and you'll end up dead, or in this case, voted off. Dexter will have to lay low in the beginning, though.

– – – – –

Name: Fon Master Ion

Season: Blood vs. Water

Placement: 5th Place

Tribe: Laropa

Jeff's Assessment: Ion is very underestimated in Survivor. He was voted off his tribe first for being a weak link. What does he do next? Dominate on Redemption Island to return to the game. While he wasn't a good player, he was highly lovable, and brought a smile to everyone. Who doesn't like Ion?

– – – – –

Name: Coco Bandicoot

Season: Beach Bowl Galaxy

Placement: 3rd Place

Tribe: Fogorote

Jeff's Assessment: Coco was a really smart player that I think got a lot more credit then people would give her for. She did make several mistakes in the Beach Bowl Galaxy, but she did well considering her brother was voted off second. Can she do well the second time? Time will only tell.

– – – – –

Name: Gadget Hackwrench

Season: Singapore

Placement: 4th Place

Tribe: Tempura

Jeff's Assessment: I think I was on the outside of everyone's opinion because I was a huge fan of Gadget during Singapore, and I believe she was one of the key factors why Singapore was such a great season. Gadget's back, and I think she's here to give it her all, and not to quit for anything.

– – – – –

Name: Lucina

Season: Lake Hylia

Placement: Runner-Up

Tribe: Halo

Jeff's Assessment: Lucina was interesting during Lake Hylia. She was a strong player, but I feel like her social game was lacking. She made too many deals, broke too many promises, and got dragged along as a result of Shulk changing the future. Here, no Monado, so Lucina will be playing differently.

– – – – –

Name: Phoenix Wright

Season: Kattlelox Island

Placement: 10th Place

Tribe: Fogorote

Jeff's Assessment: Phoenix was a smart man, but I feel like he lacked in the social game a little, and rubbed some people the wrong way. He was in control of his original tribe, Capcom, but lost all of it when sent to Nintendo. This time, I hope Phoenix can control his fate, and learn from his mistakes.

– – – – –

Name: Fiona Moore

Season: Yoshi Desert

Placement: 8th Place

Tribe: Laropa

Jeff's Assessment: Fiona was another fan we loved during Yoshi Desert. She got inspiration from two of the greatest players of all time; Reala and Will, and made a strategy of her own called the Sleeping Strategy. This time, she might have to be more careful, but given the right players, she can go deep.

– – – – –

Name: Serena

Season: Singapore

Placement: 2nd Runner Up

Tribe: Fogorote

Jeff's Assessment: Serena went through a lot during Survivor: Singapore. She was close with Glaceon, and got into an alliance, and later formed a new alliance. She wanted to bring her two friends to the end, and while she succeeded in doing it, she did not please the jury. She could do better this time.

– – – – –

Name: Barney Stinson

Season: Forest Maze / Destiny Isles

Placement: 16th Place / 7th Place

Tribe: Laropa

Jeff's Assessment: Barney was a first boot who came back and greatly improved in some areas. This time, he's really not going to be a flirt as he just got married not too long ago. He will still align with women, but probably won't be eyeing them up like he did before. This new Barney could win.

– – – – –

Name: Skarlet

Season: Prison Island

Placement: 12th Place

Tribe: Fogorote

Jeff's Assessment: Skarlet was one of those medical evacuations that didn't sound fair at all. Jeff the Killer stabbed her, trying to improve his own chances of going far, and poisoned her. She survived, and we're giving her another chance to see how she does. She might have a hard time, but we'll see.

– – – – –

Name: Orbb

Season: Singapore

Placement: 10th Place

Tribe: Halo

Jeff's Assessment: Our first genderless contestant was one of our favorites. It is the youngest player to ever play the game, and still is as our players have well aged since they appeared on the show. Orbb is smart, intelligent, but it lacks experience due to its age. It could go early, or slip past the radar.

– – – – –

Name: Rheneas

Season: Beach Bowl Galaxy

Placement: 11th Place

Tribe: Laropa

Jeff's Assessment: Rheneas is a player that, I bet, regrets how he played. He made too many alliances, and players like Freddy Fazbear sniffed him out, and got him eliminated. We wanted Freddy back, but we didn't expect him to last long. Rheneas returns instead, and I think he's a better choice.

– – – – –

Name: Pepper Clark

Season: Prison Island / Blood vs. Water

Placement: Runner-Up / 9th Place

Tribe: Tempura

Jeff's Assessment: Pepper was a part of the Bad Girls Syndicate with players like Batgirl and Kasumi. She then returned in Blood vs. Water to improve in her strategic game. Her social game was great, but it was mistakes like giving Daisy the idol that made her fall low. I think she's learned her lesson.

– – – – –

Name: Alfred 'America' Jones

Season: Packers / Yoshi Desert

Placement: 8th Place / 14th Place

Tribe: Fogorote

Jeff's Assessment: America's ego is just as big as the country he represents. He's loud, but he's proud. He does talk the talk, because he's a force to be reckoned with in the challenges. I think America's biggest problem will be keeping his mouth shut. It's a Survivor curse, and America has fallen prey to it.

– – – – –

Name: Amaterasu

Season: Kattlelox Island

Placement: 4th Place

Tribe: Halo

Jeff's Assessment: Amaterasu was meant to be a favorite on Yoshi Desert, but she declined saying she felt content with her game in Kattlelox Island. But, Issun gave us a call, and told us that Amaterasu felt ready to come try again. The fans wanted her, so here she is! I think she'll need to be careful, though.

– – – – –

Name: Vixey

Season: Cuties / Destiny Isles

Placement: 16th Place / Runner-Up

Tribe: Halo

Jeff's Assessment: Vixey was unfairly booted the first time she played. She was being honest, and she paid the price. She returned, and I think played very well. Social game was great, but I think her strategic game needs some work. She's an odd choice for an All-Star season, but she could impress.

– – – – –

Name: Steven Hyde

Season: Singapore

Placement: 9th Place

Tribe: Halo

Jeff's Assessment: Hyde was young, hip, and not really wanting to clash with the older folk. He was a good competitor in the challenges, but I also believe that he was aware of the game around him. I think this time, Hyde will emerge as a more serious player, as this is about the best against the best.

– – – – –

Name: Soi Fon

Season: Packers / Yoshi Desert

Placement: Runner-Up / 6th Place

Tribe: Tempura

Jeff's Assessment: Soi Fon made a bonehead mistake in Packers in taking Tatsuki to the end over Haruhi. Had she taken Haruhi, she would have been our very first Perfect Winner. No votes against her, and all seven jury votes. I don't think Soi Fon is stupid, so this third chance could finally be her game.

– – – – –

Name: Sub-Zero "Kuai Liang"

Season: Edenia

Placement: Runner-Up

Tribe: Halo

Jeff's Assessment: I get a lot of complaints that Sub-Zero should have never returned to the game after he was kidnapped. However, he requested, and we allowed him back in after his transformation. It's been a few years since, and he's regained his humanity. Can he make it work this time? We'll see.

– – – – –

Jeff smiled at the camera, "I hope you like this cast! We had some help from you guys to determine who would be coming back, and who wouldn't be coming back, so I hope you enjoy these 24 all star players! This season will premiere in a few days! Hype up and get ready for our biggest Survivor yet!"
