Meet the 'Survivor: Blood vs. Water' Castaways

The adage "family first" will be put to the test on this fall's 27th season of "Survivor." In "Survivor: Blood vs. Water," former players will return to battle again for the $1 million prize — against their family members!

That's right, each contestant will come along with a loved one, thinking they'll compete together. But host Jeff Probst has a surprise in store: the favorites will be on one tribe, the family members another. And in another surprise twist, Redemption Island is back in play, and when someone is voted out, their loved one will have the opportunity to switch places with them!

Check out which former players are making a comeback and the family members they're bringing with them.
