CBS says the 16 Survivor Guatemala cast members will face “two additional surprises”

The cast of Survivor Guatemala was revealed this morning, but only 16 cast members were announced. We expected at least 18.

CBS offers a thinly veiled answer in its press release. The network says the cast will hike 11 miles to their new home, and

“In addition to the grueling overnight hike, the castaways will be faced with two additional surprises in the first episode that will dramatically impact how they play the game.”

I’d guess that those two surprises are, more likely than not (stop reading now if you get freaked out easily) former Survivor Palau cast members Stephenie LaGrossa and Bobby Jon Drinkard, who are rumored to be taking part in the 11th season. Maybe they’ll act as tribe mentors or Mayan rulers of some kind?

We’ll know for sure on Sept. 15, when the new season debuts.
