It's just about time for everyone's fave reality show, Survivor. Get ready to light your Tiki torches, pick your winners and plan those Survivor parties cuz the show is just weeks away. This time 'round the big boot-fest takes place in the mystical paradise of Thailand. That means a beautiful ocean setting, fishing, splish-splashin' adventures and of course, hotties in bathing suits. Hopefully the guys will leave their Speedos at home and there won't be any nudie freaks like Richard Hatch. (Why do the yucky people always insist on bearing it all?)

There are 16 survivors competing for the million and the title of Sole Survivor. Here's an introduction to eight of the 16 survivors. Who will be the first to go? Who's the strongest? Who's the most annoying? Who brought the most useful Luxury Item? You be the judge.
