Survivor 32: KaƓh Rong

The new season in Kaôh Rong, themed "Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty," was filmed on the island Kaôh Rong in Cambodia. The location offers harsh conditions and relentless weather for the castaways, presenting one of the most physically gruelling seasons in the show's history.

The groupings of the three tribes, each comprised of six castaways, possess similar characteristics that make their group unique – high IQ, muscular physique and physical looks – and test whether there is any truth to the pre-conceived notion that certain characteristics will help you win the game of Survivor.

Included on this season's cast is an Army veteran, an emergency room doctor, a bounty hunter, a former FBI agent, a pro poker player, a super fan, a quantitative strategist and a former NBA champion.
