by at . Comments

The cast for Survivor: Cagayan has been announced… and it looks like at least two members will give themselves a real sporting chance to win.

Cliff Robinson, an 18-year NBA veteran of five teams, and Miami Marlins president David Samson are both part of the show's 28th season.

The former will be a part of the Brawn tribe, as players are split into three groups this season: Brawn, Brains and Beauty.
