'Survivor' Season 44 Cast: Every Contestant's Age, Instagram and Job

The lineup of 18 new castaways taking part in the upcoming season of Survivor has been confirmed by CBS ahead of the new episodes.

The hugely popular, Emmy Award-winning series began back in 2000 and has been through various themes and iterations throughout the years, such as Survivor: Ghost Island and "fans vs favorites."

The latter theme was so popular it ran twice; once in Survivor: Micronesia (Season 16) and Survivor: Caramoan (Season 26).

Now the long-running show is back for its 44th season, which will be hosted by long-time presenter Jeff Probst, who has fronted the competition show since the very beginning.

Survivor 44 will see the contestants compete against each other for the $1 million prize money while stranded on the beautiful islands of Fiji.

To win, the players must form a society and adapt to their physical and social surroundings, grappling with both the environment, and navigating the complex social game.

The Survivor 44 cast will be divided into three tribes of six and face a faster, more dangerous season from the moment they step on the beach.

The contestants must place trust in their tribemates as the moral dilemmas and mysterious new layers of this complex game will push even the strongest competitors to their limits.

Meanwhile, the mental and physical challenges will require players to constantly adjust their strategies in order to make it another day.

On Survivor 43 Mike Gabler was crowned the champion and took home the huge cash prize, but who will take over his throne?

Ahead of the new season, Newsweek has everything you need to know about the cast of Survivor 44, including their names, ages, jobs, and where you can find them on Instagram.
