survivor-blood-vs-water-2-cast-CBS.jpgThere are no returning castaways in the "Survivor: San Juan Del Sur - Blood vs. Water" cast that CBS announced Wednesday (Aug. 27), but that doesn't mean there aren't familiar faces amongst the new tribes.

Perhaps the biggest name in the cast is John Rocker, a controversial former MLB pitcher who hasn't pitched in the majors in over a decade, but who continues to make headlines for things like his "Speak English" campaign. Rocker will compete on "Survivor" alongside his girlfriend Julie McGee.

Another pair fans might recognize are twin sisters Nadiya and Natalie Anderson, who competed on Seasons 21 and 24 of "The Amazing Race," finishing in 4th and 11th places, respectively.
