America has spoken.

With more than 10 million ballots cast, fans of Survivor have selected 10 men and 10 women to head to a remote island later this week to play the game.

All of the contestants have played the game once before, but none of them have walked away with the $1 million check.

These 20 contestants will be immediately sequestered. They will speak to the media on Friday before going to Cambodia to play the game.

With no further ado, these are the contestants America chose.
