Then, former NBA player Cliff Robinson and president of the Miami Marlins David Samson are among the 18 new contestants who are split into three tribes based on their primary attributes: Aparri (Brawn), Luzon (Brains) and Solana (Beauty), each named for a municipality on the Filipino island in which the season was filmed. Audiences quickly learn that "not only does being 'book smart' not matter in the jungle, but having looks and being buff actually do help" (HollywoodLife.com). "SURVIVOR: CAGAYAN" introduced the grueling Draggin' the Dragon challenge, as well as the return of the hidden immunity idol element, albeit with a new caveat: it is to be used after the votes have been read and can be only used by its finder.
But now CBS DVD has put out, through Amazon's CreateSpace MOD (manufacture on demand) program, high-def Blu-ray (BD-R) sets for both Survivor - Season 27: Blood vs Water and Survivor - Season 28: Cagayan (the latter sometimes being referred to as the "Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty" season, due to the themed names of the three teams). Both became available today, November 1st. Each one is a 4-disc set priced at $39.99 SRP per title. No word on when other releases of these titles in DVD format will be available, nor on when we'll get the other as-yet-unreleased DVDs and Blu-rays for other seasons. Stay tuned for updates!
