Survivor Sets Season 39 Cast: Who's Returning for Island of the Idols?

at . Comments

We are just weeks away from the premiere of Survivor Season 39, and CBS has officially unveiled the cast. 

Two winners are on the way back to the series -- but they won't be taking part in the competition. 

"Boston Rob" Mariana and Sandra Diaz-Twine will serve as mentors to the new group of 18 castaways taking part on Season 39's "Island of the Idols."

Boston Rob and Sandra

The duo will also be the "idols" to the castaways. The new twist will allow some of the cast members to visit the Island of the Idols. 

Once there, they will learn new skills and be given lessons on strategy.

They will then be given the option to put the knowledge to use to earn an advantage or take the chance of losing something.
