Well, this should be fun.
CBS has released the first details of Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance, and the season sure looks like a winner.
In May, America voted for the cast of the long-running franchise's 31st season. They chose 10 men and 10 women who had competed once before but hadn't won the game.
By and large, America got it right, although the omission of Survivor: Africa's Teresa Cooper was a heartbreaker.
Still, multiple sources have told PEOPLE that the season turned out to be one of the franchise's strongest in its 31-season history. Here's what to expect:

Sometimes, people play a good game of Survivor, but lose because of bad luck.

Everyone knows that Survivor is a highly edited show.
Over a period of three days, multiple cameras film between 300-500 hours of footage. Then, a team of editors boil all that footage down to one 44-minute episode.
Dan Foley, the latest contestant voted off the island, says he watched the first two episodes and realized that he was going to get a villain's edit. But even he seems surprised at how negatively he was portrayed – and how vitriolic the viewer response has been.
So what did we miss? Foley, a 47-year-old postal worker from Maine, was happy to tell us.

As Survivor: Worlds Apart heads into its penultimate episode on Wednesday night, Tyler Fredrickson is out of the running for the million dollar prize.
Fredrickson, who was perhaps the nicest person in his alliance, was voted out of the game last week. The other contestants saw him as a threat.
The 34-year-old from Los Angeles tells PEOPLE what went wrong – and weighs in on the controversial season.

When Shirin Oskooi was 21, she applied to be a contestant on Survivor. She didn't make it, so she applied again and again, at least once a year.
She finally got the call to compete. She was 31.
But things didn't go as planned. Oskooi, a Yahoo! executive from San Francisco, found herself on an exceptionally unpleasant season. The arguments often devolved into vicious personal attacks – many of which were aimed directly at Oskooi.
The ugliness reached its peak when fellow contestant Will Simms derided Oskooi for not having a family. It was clearly a painful moment for the contestants and an awkward scene for the viewers. Thankfully, Oskooi's ally Mike Holloway physically led her away from the confrontation.
Oskooi tells PEOPLE about life on the island before her elimination on Wednesday's episode – and how she feels about her experience today.

With eight competitors left, Holloway and Oskooi are clearly on the outs. Other castaways have begun to verbally berate them, leading to uncomfortable fireworks each week.

Before the premiere of Survivor: Worlds Apart, host Jeff Probst promised PEOPLE that they had assembled one of the strongest casts in the show's 30-season run.

Let's face it: Survivor often casts pretty young girls who seem more interested in sunning themselves on the beach than actually playing the game. They have no strategy and give clueless confessionals.
Hali Ford was definitely not one of those girls.
The 25-year-old law student proved herself to be very intelligent and articulate. (How many other contestants have compared and contrasted Survivor strategy with the Revolutionary War?)
Unfortunately for Ford, she found herself on the wrong side of the numbers and was voted out on Day 22. She tells PEOPLE what went wrong and why she was blindsided.

Survivor is a numbers game. The entire point of the competition is to get and keep a numerical advantage against your opponents. Generally speaking, if you have the numbers, you're safe.
Unless you're Kelly Remington.
The tribes merged on Wednesday's episode, creating a new 12-member tribe. (In a flash of patriotism, they named their tribe "Merica," a shortened version of "America." the flag colors, of course, were red, white and blue.
In the new tribe, Remington had a tight alliance in the majority. The 44-year-old New York state trooper seemed very safe, until they decided to vote for sailing instructor Jenn Brown. What they didn't know: Brown had a hidden immunity idol, so no votes cast against her would count.
And just like that, Remington was voted off with just 4 votes out of a possible 12. Merica had spoken.
Remington tells PEOPLE what went wrong – and what viewers missed at home.
