'Survivor' announces its latest crop of castaways

Jimmy_johnson It’s time for the next batch of castaways to head out for duty.

CBS announced the 20 folks who will compete in what they’re dubbing a “tribal battle of the ages” on “Survivor: Nicaragua.”

Among the contestants who will be stranded in a land of volcanoes and treacherous terrain will be former NFL coach Jimmy Johnson.

The 67-year-old, who is now an NFL commentator on Fox, will be part of a team of 10 fortysomething and older contestants (a.k.a. the Espada Tribe) — which also consists of a dog trainer, a doctor and a goat rancher — who will compete against a group aged 30 and under (the La Flor Tribe).

Maybe winning two Super Bowls with the Dallas Cowboys will work to his team’s advantage?

The series will premiere on a new night, Wednesday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
