Here’s what we figure WON’T happen this time around: Yau-Man won’t be giving up a new truck on the promise that a guy named Dreamz won’t vote him out.
The fabulous Yau Man from Martinez isn’t the only Bay Area person representing on “Survivor: Micronesia – Fans vs. Favorites” when the 16th installment of the premieres at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7 on CBS. On the fan side, Mary Sartain of Emeryville will be battling out.
And she doesn’t have to deal with Jonny Fairplay on her team.
Cirie Fields, Jonathan Penner, Eliza Orlins, Amanda Kimmel, Jonny Fairplay, James Clement, Parvati Shallow, Ozzy and Yau-Man Chan are the 10 castaways from the Favorites tribe, set to compete in SURVIVOR: MICRONESIA – FANS VS. FAVORITES when the sixteenth installment of the Emmy Award-winning reality series premieres Thursday, Feb. 7 (8:00 – 9:00 PM ET/PT) on CBS
In a “Survivor” first, 10 ultra-fans of the series will take on 10 former castaways to compete. The two tribes will be marooned amid the Rock Islands of Palau, Micronesia. The skills of the former castaways will be put to the test while the tribe of first-time competitors will see if their enthusiasm and passion for the game is enough to distinguish them as worthy competitors.
It sure helped superfan Todd win the last round.
Mary Sartain, Michael “Mikey B” Bortone, Tracy Hughes-Wolf, Chet Welch, Natalie Bolton, Joel Anderson, Kathleen Sleckman, Jason Siska, Erik Reichenbach, and Alexis Jones are the 10 castaways from the Fav’s tribe
