Bad weather has always been a part of Survivor. There have been countless shots of players calling it the lowest point of their lives as they sit and shiver in massive storms. The show experienced 21 straight days of rain during filming of Survivor: Philippines. And then, during Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X, the players were actually evacuated for the first time ever during a cyclone that hit Fiji shortly after the season began.

Well, Mother Nature struck again during filming of Survivor: David vs. Goliath, which premieres Sept. 26 on CBS. And not once, but twice. Just like on Millennials vs. Gen X, a cyclone hit the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji during filming on the very first episode of David vs. Goliath. But that’s not all. EW can also reveal that a second, even more destructive cyclone hit during filming on a later episode as well.

This is the danger (and, for viewers, excitement) of filming in Fiji. Survivor has set up shop permanently in the country and shoots back-to-back seasons there, with about a two-week break between them. While the second seasons in the filming cycle that start at the end of May take place in the dry season and are relatively free from weather drama, the first cycles that shoot at the beginning of April catch the tail end of the wet season and can include heavy rainfall — and worse. That’s what happened during Millennials vs. Gen X, and that’s what happened twice during David vs. Goliath.

“Cyclones are becoming a normal part of shooting Survivor in Fiji, especially the first of the two seasons,” host Jeff Probst tells EW. “There is a cyclone in the first episode that hammers the tribes with extremely strong and relentless rain as they attempt to establish shelter and make fire. This is not the last of the bad weather and this is not the worst of the cyclones they will have to overcome.”

Take a look below at some of the exclusive challenge photos from the first episode that show off the deluge that hit the players, and then stay tuned to see when — and how much harder — the second cyclone hits.

We always seem to end up giving many nicknames to help us remember who they are.

Yes, I was a little let down by the Ghost Island idea not being more exciting too. Hope this time it’s a little better season.
And......
Gee hate it with the players with all the similar names.
It’s hard enough to remember who is who in the beginning weeks.

CBS has announced the 20 castaways who will be competing against each other on Survivor: David Vs. Goliath. The series will return for season 37 with a special 90-minute premiere on Sept. 26 at 8 p.m. The 20 castaways will be divided into two groups of 10 strangers. Those in the “David” tribe “have overcome adversity in their lives, while the castaways on the ‘Goliath’ tribe tend to capitalize on their individual advantages and use it against their opponents,” according to CBS.

“‘Goliaths’ often have visible advantages, and they capitalize on them to ensure success, whereas ‘Davids’ are often forced to rely on their secret weapons and use these advantages to overcome adversity,” executive producer and host Jeff Probst says. “It’s two very different approaches to life, but Survivor is the great equalizer, because you never know which skill set will be most useful in this cunning game of social politics.”

These new castaways will be forced to compete against each other with the same ultimate goal: to become the Sole Survivor. Survivor returns to the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji.

not that excited yet about this season and maybe that a good thing. Last season I was so excited I had a picture in my head of what ghost island was going to be and when it turned of to be a boring twist I was disappointed, With low expectation's on this season maybe it will surprise me.

For Survivor's 37th season, brand-new castaways will be sorted into two groups:

The Davids, who have scratched and clawed their way through life to prove themselves, overcome adversity, and earned everything they've got.

And then there's the Goliaths, who come from a place of privilege and have capitalized on their advantage to crush the competition, be it in business, education, or the professional wrestling ring.

But social politics can change drastically when you're stranded on an island in the game of Survivor; as Jeff says in the video above, every Goliath has an Achilles heel, and every David has a secret weapon.

Who will be able to outwit, outplay, and outlast the competition in order to be crowned Sole Survivor?
