LOS ANGELES, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- The next edition of the competition reality series "Survivor" is to take place in Tocantins, the Brazilian Highlands, CBS said.

The 18th season of the iconic TV show is slated to premiere Feb. 12 with 16 contestants competing for the top prize of $1 million.

"'Survivor: Tocantins' will prove to be one of the most rugged locations ever visited and the only relief from these harsh conditions will be a river oasis known as the Rio Novo. Left stranded in the majestic interior of Brazil for 39 days, these castaways will battle scorching temperatures, torrential downpours, and dangerous wildlife all in an effort to outwit, outplay, and outlast one another in order to win the title of Sole Survivor," CBS said in a news release Wednesday.

"This season, the castaways will be divided into two separate tribes from the very beginning and these diverse individuals must immediately begin their game based solely on their first impressions of each other," the network added.
