No Redemption Island and no returning players? "One World" might be the "Survivor" season we've been waiting for. The big twist is that the tribes are segregated by sexes, but they are all forced to share a beach. It's an interesting concept, and we're mostly curious about who will be the players we love, and who will be the ones we love to hate.
Stats: 25-year-old special-education teacher from Chicago
First Impression: She's filled with attitude, and given that she threatened to punch Christina at the first tribal council, it seems as if she'd be better suited for "Bad Girls Club."
Odds of Winning: 40 to 1. She's too outspoken to make it to the end, because she's made herself a huge target. She also vehemently objected to Christina making deals with the men. And being averse to making nice with the opposite tribe will be a big mistake come merge.
Stats: 28-year-old stand-up comedian from Venice, California
First Impression: He barely said a word, but politely said thank you to the women who were doing some frond-weaving for him.
Odds of Winning: 5 to 1. Having nice manners, aligning with the other strong guys, and laying low is not the worst strategy in the world.
Stats: 26-year-old medical salesperson from Charleston, S.C.
First Impression: She's fairly tough and was mad about having to share a beach with the guys. She's also the girl who caught two chickens and then reneged on the deal to split them with the boys.
Odds of Winning: 30 to 1. The second the merge happens, she's toast. These guys don't seem the type to forgive and forget -- especially when it comes to food.
Stats: 29-year-old career consultant from Hollywood
First Impression: She is the only one who successfully managed to negotiate with the guys for the fire. But she also snuck over to their camp in the middle of the night to steal embers from them as retaliation for their ax thieving.
Odds of Winning: 17 to 1. We don't want to underestimate her. She's making nice with the opposite tribe, which might benefit her in the long run -- if her all-female tribe doesn't kick her out first.
Stats: 21-year-old college student from Monroeville, Alabama
First Impression: He's gay and worried he won't fit in with the beefy guys, so he befriends the ladies to better his chances, while pretending to be spying for the men. And he's more into making clever quips than anything.
Odds of Winning: 75 to 1. Even though he was given the first immunity idol, it seems like he might get blindsided before he plays it.
Stats: 64-year-old plastic surgeon from Houston, Texas
First Impression: He would like us to call him Tarzan, and got Jeff Probst to oblige. We suppose after Fabio, anything goes. But still, Tarzan? And he does the yell? We're annoyed already.
Odds of Winning: 15 to 1. He's got a shot— if he can dispense with the young guy alliance, as he's extremely fit for his age (or any age, really).
Stats: 25-year-old model from Gaffney, S.C.
First Impression: He is taking this game seriously and thinks that his tribe shouldn't assist the women in any way, shape, or form.
Odds of Winning: 30 to 1. He's strong and knows how to make a fire, so he'll be a target.
Stats: 37-year-old sushi chef from Lehi, Utah
First Impression: He says he's a sushi chef with hidden skills, but we've yet to see them in action.
Odds of Winning: 14 to 1. Seems like an underdog, but we like an underdog.
Stats: 22-year-old timeshare rep from Orlando
First Impression: She doesn't know what ambience is, or who the players on the other team are. So she's not the sharpest tool in the shed, is what we're saying.
Odds of Winning: 8 to 1. She's charmingly oblivious, which could work in her favor.
Stats: 29-year-old bridal shop owner from San Antonio, Texas
First Impression: She's used to chivalrous guys and isn't impressed by the guys stealing things. Seeing them do that forced her to make an alliance with the other guys.
Odds of Winning: 6 to 1. She's arguably the strongest female player, and she doesn't seem obnoxious. If a girl ends up winning, it could very well be her.
Stats: 27-year-old phlebotomist from San Diego
First Impression: He's a little person, but he seems more than capable of pulling his own weight (and probably Colton's too).
Odds of Winning: 10 to 1. He seems like a nice guy, which likely means that no one will want to take him to the final tribal council.
Stats: 33-year-old attorney from San Francisco
First Impression: He's vocal about everything, domineering, and was more than a little angry about the stolen chicken.
Odds of Winning: 4 to 1. Even though he can't figure out the math to have a majority alliance, powerful jerks like him have a tendency to go far.
Stats: 30-year-old banker from Seattle
First Impression: This charming guy made a crack about needing women to read maps, and that's all we learned about him in the premiere episode.
Odds of Winning: 12 to 1. He's a nonentity at this point. Then again, we can barely remember half the people who have actually won this game.
Stats: 41-year-old ex-NFL player's wife from Tampa
First Impression: She offers to take her clothes off in trade for fire. Or at least doesn't object to doing it when it is suggested. Classy.
Odds of Winning: 25 to 1. Not a chance, particularly if people find out she was married to someone in the NFL.
Stats: 51-year-old retired LAPD officer from Clovis, California
First Impression: She didn't talk much, but she took a nasty header during the first challenge, got a nasty bruise on her face, and then got back up and wanted to continue playing. That's a lot more than we can say for Kourtney.
Odds of Winning: 20 to 1. She's tough, but she seems like they might write her off as the motherly type.
Stats: 33-year-old high school teacher from Brooklyn
First Impression: She seems overly enamored with Colton, which can't be good. She found the immunity idol, was told she had to give to a guy, and then gave it to Colton instead of weighing an option that could actually benefit her in the future.
Odds of Winning: 60 to 1. We like her, but she's already made a potentially fatal mistake.
Stats: 50-year-old swimsuit photographer from Miami
First Impression: He's annoyed that Greg laid claim to the Tarzan name, as he was hoping people would call him Troyzan. Moron. He also refers to breasts as a "set of taters," and he was the most vocal about not letting the women have a shot to win the immunity idol.
Odds of Winning: 16 to 1. He's an idiot, but he's a passionate idiot.
