'Survivor: One World' Cast: Meet The Contestants (PHOTOS)

Eighteen new contestants will compete for $1 million in Season 24 of "Survivor."

In "Survivor: One World," the 18 new contestants, including an ex-NFL wife, a model and a college student, will be split in two tribes of nine based on gender: the Salani Tribe and the Manono Tribe. The tribes are named after the islands in Samoa. It wouldn't be a new season of "Survivor" without a twist: The two tribes will live together on the same beach and potentially share resources. Be on the lookout for possible inter-tribe alliances.

The new season -- with Jeff Probst returning as host -- kicks off on Wed., Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.

Take a look at the new cast below.
