Survivor: Nicaragua debuts Wednesday at 8pm on CBS, but you can get your very first taste of the new season right here, right now! Click on the video player below to see the season premiere opening as the contestants are marooned on the beaches of Nicaragua. They think they’ve been split into tribes and are already making impressions of people they believe are their tribemates. Little do they realize they will be re-divided by age later. (Sneaky!) More important, see if you can figure out how the heck Jeff Probst got himself on top of that huge rock! Speaking of the host with the most, after you’re done watching that, stay tuned for a follow-up behind-the-scenes clip as Probst reveals his favorite marooning ever out of all 21 seasons. Will it be the epic brawl of Heroes vs Villains, the send-them-overboard sweetness of Pearl Islands, the race through the rain of Fans vs. Favorites? Keep watching to see for yourself, then tell us what your favorite opening is and what you think of the new cast. And for all the Survivor scoop, follow me on Tiwtter@EWDaltonRoss.
