If you are disappointed by Survivor Season 41, or just want to relive one of the greatest seasons of the CBS reality competition, Netflix is here for you. All 15 episodes of Survivor: Micronesia are now available to stream on Netflix. The season’s theme was “Fans vs. Favorites,” which meant that 10 superfans of the show competed against 10 former players. And here’s everything you need to know about the Survivor: Micronesia cast.
The ‘Fans’ of the ‘Survivor: Micronesia’ cast

Airai was made up of superfans of Suvivor. The 10 newbies were shocked to discover that they would be playing against some of their favorite Survivor castaways.
A couple of Survivor: Micronesia cast members to keep an eye out for are Erik and Natalie. Erik’s bio reads, “[He] believes he’ll go far on Survivor because he is a good listener, entertaining, optimistic, athletic, a creative thinker and can easily be a leader or a follower.” And Natalie’s bio reads, “She believes her extensive world travel, athleticism, ability to read people and understanding of the human condition will be skills that will help her on Survivor.”
