It’s old blood versus new blood in the ultimate test of the survival of the fittest on a tropical island. Welcome to Survivor: Micronesia — Fans vs. Favorites, where, in its 16th installment starting tonight, Survivor will pit the reality show’s memorable stars against die hard fans.

Amongst those returning are Survivor: China castaways James Clement, a Louisiana gravedigger and Amanda Kimmel, last season’s third place winner and former beauty pageant veteran, along with Pearl Island‘s notorious alum Jonny Fairplay (a.k.a. Jon Dalton), most famous for lying about his grandmother’s death. They will battle newbies like Natalie Bolton, a former international missionary, Kathleen Sleckman, an Illinois golf course beer and snack vendor, and Erik Reichenbach a college student and comic book writer from Michigan.

Will the rookies outdo the Survivor alums they idolized? Or will the rookies outsmart the vets?

Fans vs. Favorites isn’t the only new component to the Survivor franchise. The brand has announced the launch of its vitamin-infused “Survivor Supercharged Sunflower Seeds” and “Survivor Fitness Program,” to get the show’s followers in shape using a Survivor-esque model. Both will be released in this Spring, which may be just in time for fans to prepare to take on veterans in another installment of Fans vs. Favorites! –Christina TapperPhoto: Monty Brinton/CBS
