In the 90-minute premiere of Survivor: Philippines (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) we're introduced to the contestants.

They include former "Facts of Life" star Lisa Whelchel; former MLB MVP Jeff Kent; and three former contestants who had to leave their seasons because of illness or injury - Michael Skupin, Russell Swann and Jonathan Penner.

And don't forget the Utah beauty queen, Angie Layton!

Should be fun.
