CBS previews Survivor Samoa and “the biggest Survivor villain ever”

Less than a month to go before the debut of Survivor Samoa on Sept. 17, CBS has started to air promos for the new season. Unlike the generic preview that aired at the end of last season and incorrectly connects Samoa to Treasure Island (Robert Louis Stevenson just lived and died there after he wrote the book), this shows the 20 contestants (not 18, as Probst said at the end of last season), part of a challenge, and promises “one of these castaways will become the biggest Survivor villain ever.”

The preview, below, aired during Big Brother last night. My favorite part: the zoom in on the island is to the wrong fucking island.
