It's back to the tropics for the ninth season of Survivor, which will find its home in Vanuatu, the "Islands of Fire," near Fiji, dashing rumors of a cold Canadian set. Introduced Aug. 17 on CBS's Early Show, the women's Yasur team includes a rancher, a pre-law student and a highway-repair worker, while the men's Lopevi tribe boasts a teacher, a mechanical bull operator and a drill sergeant. No word yet on whether any of the contestants enjoy walking around naked. The show debuts Sept. 16.
