How to Watch: Survivor Season 45 Premiere

Season 45 of the popular show Survivor kicks off later this month with a 90-minute opening episode. The premiere, “We Can Do Hard Things,” introduces 18 new castaways on an abandoned Fiji island “where they must learn to adapt, or they will be voted out.”

The show, which launched in 2000, pits three “tribes” against each other and they compete to win prizes and earn the right to stay on the island while the losing group has to vote off a team member. Each episode brings one contestant closer to winning the $1 million prize. 

The contestants include: 

  • Julie Alley, a 49-year-old estate attorney from Brentwood, Tennessee.
  • Nicholas “Sifu” Alsup, a 30-year-old gym owner from O’Fallon, Illinois.
