Okay, here’s the deal…

Deal or No Deal is back. But it’s now taking place on an island. So naturally, it only makes sense that one of reality television’s most famous island dwellers be a part of it.

EW has the exclusive on the new cast of 13 contestants competing on Deal or No Deal Island — which will kick-off on NBC with a 30-minute preview after the NFL wildcard playoff game on Jan. 13.

This sneak peek comes before the series premieres at 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 26 and then moves into its regular timeslot on March 4 at 10 p.m. — and one of those contestants is none other than Survivor star Boston Rob Mariano.

Originally competing on Survivor: Marquesas back in 2002, Boston Rob returned for Survivor: All-Stars (where he made it to the end with future wife Amber Brkich), Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, Survivor: Redemption Island (which he won), and Survivor: Winners at War. He also appeared as a mentor on Survivor: Island of the Idols and competed twice with Amber on The Amazing Race. Suffice it to say, he knows his way around a competition show. And he’s not the only famous reality TV face in the cast.

Claudia Jordan — who starred on two seasons of The Celebrity Apprentice as well as The Real Housewives of Atlanta — will be returning to the franchise where she got her start. Originally a briefcase model on Deal or No Deal, Claudia will be back, and this time playing for the loot.

Both can be seen in action in the exclusive trailer for the completely revamped show above, in which host Joe Manganiello explains how, “The game you know and love is back — this time on the Banker’s private island.”

As for Boston Rob, he promises that “I want to figure out a way to control the game,” and judging by his résumé, he just may be able to do it.

In this new version of the show, cases filled with over $200 million in cash are hidden across the island — some in mud, others up in the air, and yes, one surrounded by snakes.

In each episode, players will compete in challenges to retrieve the briefcase with the most money that will grant them immunity and the ability to choose another contestant to enter the Temple, where that person will play a round of Deal or No Deal.

If the player chosen to enter the Temple accepts a deal worth less than their selected briefcase, they are eliminated. If they make a good deal, they get to eliminate someone else who does not have immunity. Eventually, the last contestant standing will compete against the Banker for the group pot of money.

Below are the exclusive first photos of the contestants as well as host Joe Manganiello and Banker’s Assistants Ben Crofchick and Kamari Love.
