Billed as "the biggest battle in Survivor history," season 40 has united no less than 20 past winners to compete against each other for a historic $2 million prize.

Denise Stapley, Ben Driebergen, Sarah Lacina, Michele Fitzgerald, and Tony Vlachos are the remaining five players to have reached the final phase. They're set to be joined by one Edge of Extinction returnee, strongly rumoured to be the season’s first eliminated contestant, Natalie Anderson.
