They usually build the theme around the cast, not the other way around.  They look at the cast they have and then figure out which theme would fit them best.  Look at David vs. Goliath for example.  Probst said that they looked at Pat, the ultimate "David" and looked at John, the ultimate "Goliath" and that's what made them pick that theme.    

I know Probst always says that's the case but who knows whether he's being honest or not. Obviously that's the answer fans woul rather hear than having him tell everyone they limited casting by having a specific theme from the start of casting

I'm sure both are possibly truths. They most likely have a couple of themes in mind and as they narrow down the cast, they start narrowing down which theme is best fits everyone they generally like in that casting process and what theme they fit the best.

Like I'm sure they have a few they really want and like and then from those, they pick a theme and round out the rest of the cast afterwards.

If producoers are playing with us fans will not be happy.

If the theme is true Danni better come back.

TONY!!!! TONY!!!!! TONY!!!!!!!!

OMG!! Parvati, Michele, Natalie A, Danni, Vee, Kim, Tina, Sandra, Jenna, and hopefully a young hottie from 38 or 39. This could be sooo iconic!!

Would be shocked if they got Natalie White back since she does not want to return.

Hopefully Densie from Phillippines return.

Actually Probst said she did enough to be invited back but that was back when she was a young, cute blonde.

Eww...Denise is boring. Leave her at home.

Could we get winners from other versions? I would love to see Shane or Jericho from AUS Survivor. 

I’m really really excited for this. Parvati, Natalie A, Tony, Hatch, Michele, Tyson and Sandra all potentially on the same season. Wig

There’s never been a more iconic Final 3.

 2 winners I REALLY REALLY wanna see is Earl and Danni. They were O so close to getting cast on gamechangers. 

Yes. read the rumor yesterday and got a bit excited but now it looks real and I'm ******* stoked. Probst can go ahead and but 50 new twists on 39 but do not ruin this. 

I found this thread recently on reddit for anyone who wants to know who may or may not want to come back for this

I'm all for a Denise return...boring or not she's great to watch because of her gameplay

As long as we have Kim I don't care what other 17-19 winners show up.  Probably need Sandra again too Smile

Sandra will 100% come back she's said multiple times she owes too much to Survivor to decline. Nevermind the fact that it's all winners, no way she's not going to want to attempt to defend her two time winner title.

The people that need to be there IMO are Parv, Kim, Sandra & Tony. Rob's story is complete after losing 3 times but I still wouldn't be opposed to having a player of his caliber. Hatch would be nice too but I'd understand if they didn't want him

I find it hard to believe that they’ll be able to get a full cast of winners back but if they do then we’ll def get some interesting surprises.

I kinda don’t want an all winners season because I want Queen Sandra having the only two time winner title. Lol

I don’t see it being that hard to get 18-20 Winners.

I honestly don’t think we’re gonna get Kim, I don’t think she wants to play again or at least not right now when her kids are still pretty young. 

Parvati, Kim, Sandra, Tina, Natalie A, Rich, Tony, And Wendell are musts. I kinda want to see Fabio again too just for the lulz

Getting 9 females is the only potential issue. But Sandra, Tina, Denise, Michele, Nat Anderson, Sophie & Danni would probably all do it if they can get off work, Parvati & Kim both have said they'd do all winners but may not want to leave their kids and I think Sarah could be tempted to go. Plus If I had to guess I'd say 38 has a female winner, though I'm probably just being hopreful. Jenna could be on for a redemption story but I doubt it

The female half of the cast almost casts itself.  There's only 14 different female winners since Sandra won twice.  Jenna probably won't be in since she almost died from heroin last year and attacked that cop.  That leaves you with 13 options.  Tina, Vecepia, Amber, Sandra, Danni, Parvati, Natalie W, Sophie, Kim, Denise, Natalie A, Michele, Sarah.   If a female won EOE then you'll have 14 choices.   Amber has said she's done with the show and Natalie W has basically dropped off the face of the earth, but maybe they could be persuaded idk.   Parvati and Sandra are def the biggest names from the females side, as long as they can get them then we'll be in business, and I think they will be able to too cause Parvati always said she would come back for something like this.   

The guys side is a lot harder to predict.  Hatch is obviously the most iconic name but idk about his legal situation.  Brian is unlikely since Probst said they considered him biefly in the past but were too disgusted by the thought lolol.   Ethan/Chris/Tom would be hard to clear health-wise.  Bob may be too old.  Boston Rob would be a big get but he's said numerous times that he's done.  Maybe he's the one that CBS is paying big money for like Redmond said?  Earl and Mike were both in the mix for GC and were almost on so I would say they're likely.  As well as Tony & JT.  We'll likely have a lot of recent people.  As long as we have my faves Tyson & Tony then I'll be happy.  

 

I did see Brian's season what did he do to have Jeff so pressed?

He can stay home then.

I think if Jenna can prove she received treatment and has been clean she deserves another chance.   

If they do this, I don’t see it being a cast of 20 like usual. Maybe only 18. I see an odd number of men and women and probably more recent winners than past. So like the last 10 seasons, I definitely see those winners making up the cast as I think they are more likely to want to play again. I’m not super crazy about this theme but given its season 40, it’s only right for them to actually try and do it. 

I just wonder how hard these people will play given they’ve all won before? And only ONE of them can win again. I think a second chances 2 or even HvV 2 would have been better.

I think to up the stakes the grand prize should be 2 million dollars instead of the usual 1 million. And 40 days on the island instead of 39 of course. 

Yeah upping the prize means you pretty much have to play hard, how often do you get a 1/18 shot at 2 million dollars? There are people like maybe Aras who would just come for an upped appearance fee but I also see a lot of people like Mike H who would fly out tonight for free just to be part of this
