Arguably the most anticipated season of Survivor is only days away. The show’s 40th season, Survivor: Winners at War, premieres on Wednesday, February 12, with 20 past winners competing to win their 2nd (or 3rd, Sandra Diaz-Twine) honor of being Sole Survivor.
Survivor has no doubt been one of the most popular and influential reality competition series over the past two decades, so it didn’t come as much of a surprise that CBS and the show decided to make their 40th season this epic. They did something similar in their 20th season back in 2010 with Survivor: Heroes vs.Villains, which resonates with many fans as being one of the best editions of the show in its long and illustrious history.
One of the reasons why fans tune in, whether they want to admit it or not, is to see the bevy of hot bodies compete in next to nothing each episode (see Michael Yerger please). The man candy on this show has been nothing short of spectacular and that tradition rings true once again with this winning crop of dudes that are sinfully delicious to look at.
Here are five worth taking a look at for the upcoming season as they will no doubt be shirtless, in a bathing suit, or maybe even less. As RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Gia Gunn once famously said, “Get into it!”
