"Survivor: Caramoan" hits the airwaves on Feb. 13, delivering up another cast of misfits, manipulators, misogynists and maniacs including 10 players we couldn't wait to get rid of the first time.

We also think the "Survivor" producers have a lot of nerve calling this a "Fans vs. Favorites" season because the Evil Little Troll's Nephew and Pink Panty Agent Man were not our idea of faves.

You be the judge. Here's the lineup, with our traditional snark.

Bikal (favorites) Tribe

Andrea Boehlke, 23

New York, N.Y.

Occupation: Entertainment host and writer

Survivor skills: You might remember Andrea from "Redemption Island." We didn't, until we saw her photo. It was the first season to feature a chance to get back into game after having your torch snuffed. The new twist gave Andrea her chance, but she then was promptly voted out again.

Survivability: Let's say we're not confident she'll make it to the finals. She's pinning her hopes on "crazy people" targeting each other, sort of like in the presidential primaries. When asked what three things she would bring to the island, if she could, she said a yoga mat, juggling balls filled with rice and a unicorn, but not one of the flying kind. Idiot. You would so want the flying kind.

Brandon Hantz, 21

Katy, Texas

Occupation: Chemical disposal

Survivor skills: Brandon is the nephew of Russell Hantz, a conniving lout who thought people would give him the prize money out of respect for the way he lied, backstabbed and voted them all off. They didn't. We think of him as the Evil Little Troll and Brandon as the Evil Little Troll's nephew. On "Survivor: South Pacific," Brandon was a hot mess. He didn't want to disclose his relationship to the Evil Little Troll, then felt guilty about it and confessed in dramatic fashion. He also seemed fixated on scantily clad female contestants, willing to ogle them before turning on a sort of biblical wrath against the Jezabels. We had no idea what to make of him.

Survivability: Despite his protestations that he's changed, we haven't seen evidence of it. He describes himself as "sexy, crazy fun and loyal," and lists his reasons for returning as "money, money, money." His hobbies are hunting, fishing and fire breathing. Unless someone needs a loyal henchman, he'll be out early.

Brenda Lowe, 30

Miami, Fla.

Occupation: Paddleboard company owner

Survivor skills: In Brenda's first season, "Survivor: Nicaragua," we didn't want to like her but she quickly grew on us. She had people doing her bidding, but then it all fell apart when her alliance weakened and one of her tribemates failed to share an immunity idol with her. She's bright, pretty and good at challenges, which don't always mean success in this game.

Survivability: If Brenda can recapture her early magic and keep her alliance in line, she could go very far. If nothing else, she's the one the other players should be wary of. If they underestimate her, they may find their torches being snuffed before they know what happened.

Corinne Kaplan, 33

Los Angeles, Calif.

Occupation: Clinical consultant

Survivor skills: Corrine was part of the "Survivor: Gabon" season and became the 12th castaway to be voted out, and another "favorite" we only have vague memories of. In reading her bio, we started having flashbacks. Unpleasant ones. When asked who her inspiration in life is, she said the question implies she wants to "be like" someone and she doesn't. Whatever.

Survivability: Her pet peeves are "reality show losers" and "anyone who uses the "door open" button in an elevator. How random. How sad. Please push the down button and step out when you reach the sub basement.

Dawn Meehan, 42

South Jordan, Utah

Occupation: English professor

Survivor skills: Dawn was on "Survivor: South Pacific" and made it much further than we predicted. Early in the game, she had an emotional breakdown and had to be talked out of quitting by "Papa Bear." She snapped out of it and became a strong player, right up until her torch got snuffed.

Survivability: Dawn may have captured lightening in a bottle when she played the first time, finding a niche that might not exist this season. The key will be whether she can recreate that place or go a completely different route and take control of the game from the start.

Erik Reichenbach, 27

Santa Clarita, Calif.

Occupation: Comic book artist

Survivor skills: If you don't remember Erik, let us refresh your memory. Sweet-face kid from "Survivor: Micronesia" who was easily talked into showing what a stand-up guy he is by giving his immunity necklace to another tribemate, and who was then rather gleefully voted out, the ghost of a smile dying on his lips as his torch was snuffed.

Survivability: He's back, he says, largely to show everyone that "in actuality I am a smart, funny guy who just does things in a different way." Erik, Erik, Erik. Don't you know they go after the different ones first?

Francesca Hogi, 38

Brooklyn, N.Y.

Occupation: Attorney

Survivor skills: Francesca's mouth got her voted off "Survivor: Redemption Island" when she let certain people get to her. She does hold the dubious distinction of being the first voted off, the first to go to "Redemption Island" and the first to get booted off there, too.

Survivability: Francesca has developed a system of speaking her mind and getting punished for it. We say, let's not mess with a proven track record.

John Cochran, 25

Washington, D.C.

Occupation: Harvard law student

Survivor skills: If there was ever a guy designed for not playing this game, it would be Cochran, as he prefers to be called. A scrawny, brainy, neurotic guy who didn't want to take off his shirt (with good reason) and didn't seem to fit in anywhere. You could taste his desperation through the television screen. And yet, he almost made it the to end, becoming the 13th castaway and fifth jury member on "Survivor: South Pacific."

Survivability: Cochran has lived and breathed "Survivor" from the first season and is likely the biggest expert of the game there is. But it's sort of like studying musical theory without ever playing the instrument. We fear his game hasn't changed enough to get him anywhere this time around.

Malcolm Freberg, 25

Hermosa Beach, Calif.

Occupation: Bartender

Survivor skills: We admit to having a bias in favor of Malcolm, who came close to winning the previous season. He had everything working against him and he managed to stay in the game and become such a threat that he was voted off because everyone was too afraid to go up against him. He's strong, capable, plays a great social game and seems like the kind of person you might want to hang out with outside of the game.

Survivability: If he can play the same game he played before, he'll be golden. Unfortunately, nothing ever goes as planned in "Survivor." As the unknown quantity, they could vote him off early.

Phillip Sheppard, 54

Santa Monica, Calif.

Occupation: CEO of software company

Survivor skills: Phillip made it to the final three of "Survivor: Redemption Island," but he was a loose cannon the entire game. He irritated people by washing his nasty pink undies in the soup pot, and he seemed to enjoy a very vivid fantasy life, portraying himself as a super counter-intelligence federal agent/spy/Man in Pink Undies. He was both entertaining and painful to watch.

Survivability: We can't believe anyone will put up with him for long, unless they decide he makes the perfect foil for the finals, like last time. But Phil is the quintessential double-edged sword. He can be a valuable distraction but he's extremely difficult to control. If we had a vote, we'd snuff his torch and snuff it fast.

Gota (fans) Tribe

Laura Alexander, 23

Washington, D.C.

Occupation: Administrative officer

Survivor skills: Laura's lists her personal claim to fame as climbing Mt. Toubkal in North Africa, and says she enjoys traveling, jigsaw puzzles and dancing. She compares herself to other strong female players, including Brenda, whom she will face on the "favorites" tribe.

Survivability: She promises she'll kick butt on challenge puzzles and work hard around camp. "You won't find me picking my sorority sister's armpit hair," she says. Well good, we say, because we don't want to see that. But she'll have plenty of time to pick her own when she gets booted off to Loser Lodge.

Sherri Biethman, 41

Boise, Idaho

Occupation: Fast food franchisee

Survivor skills: Sherri describes herself as having a strong personality and lots of charm. In our experience, if you've got one, you better have the other, and most who people who think they do really don't. She also sees herself as a natural, likable leader. Oh, she will be like a lamb to the slaughter.

Survivability: Once her tribemates hear about her autistic son and how she has fought the establishment to make sure he got the proper diagnosis, they'll vote her off fast. No "Survivor" wants to see someone deserving win the money.

Matt Bischoff, 38

Cincinnati, Ohio

Occupation: BMX bike sales

Survivor skills: OK, we're a little worried about Matt. His inspiration in life is Hans Langseth, a guy who grew the longest beard ever -- 17.5 feet long. What sort of character traits are needed to grow a beard? Matt also lists his hobbies as singing in a band, BMX and beards. OK, we get it. He likes beards.

Survivability: One of the things he'd bring with him, if he could, would be a video camera to "film myself doing wild stuff." Dude. You are on TV. Set the freaking TiVo. Sorry Matt, but the second chair is open at the Loser Lodge barbershop. Let's get ready to shave that chin, shall we?

Hope Driskill, 23

Jefferson City, Mo.

Occupation: Pre-law student

Survivor skills: Hope seems like a decent sort. Her father is her inspiration, she graduated summa cum laude from the University of Missouri, she describes herself as tenacious, intelligent and personable, and she doesn't like complainers or not being able to brush her teeth. She wants to win the money to pay for law school, but we can't hate her just for that.

Survivability: Hope is likely to be the girl who goes along, doesn't cause any waves and makes all of her tribemates necklaces out of shells and Matt's beard hair. At the end of the show, if she's still around, we all be asking "Who is she again?"

Eddie Fox, 23

East Brunswick, N.J.

Occupation: Fireman/EMT

Survivor skills: Eddie describes himself as a hard worker who is great with his hands, has a great personality, is a good swimmer, is very social and has a very positive attitude. He doesn't like people who talk about things they know nothing about, so it's a given he wouldn't like us, or Philip, or most of the "Survivor" cast.

Survivability: It used to be the strong players stayed the longest, but that hasn't been true in a while and we think the strongest thing about Eddie is his ego. Hey Fireman Eddie, your torch is in violation of the fire code. We have to snuff it.

Julia Landauer, 21

Stanford, Calif.

Occupation: Race car driver, Stanford University student

Survivor skills: At age 14, she became the first woman champion in the Skip Barber Racing Series. Paul Newman is her idol, and we assume it was racing skills that impressed her and not his salad dressing. Her biggest pet peeve is slow drivers in the left lane, so she should be golden on an island with no form of transportation or highways at all.

Survivability: We want to take away points for describing herself as "driven," but we'll let her pass in favor of making our own puns. If Julia doesn't stall out at the start and makes quick pit stops, she could win the checkered flag. Winning the game of "Survivor" is a whole other thing. We expect a blowout in the third lap.

Allie Pohevitz, 25

Oceanside, N.Y.

Occupation: Bartender

Survivor skills: We think Allie's list of pet peeves tells us all we need to know about her. She hates dirty people. "I don't mind if you are messy and leave clothes or papers around but if you drop food, clean it up. If you use a cup, wash it out. If you go to the bathroom, wash your hands." She also doesn't care if she is lied to as long as the lies remain consistent.

Survivability: Allie, Allie, Allie. You will be living outdoors where there is no running water to wash your hands and people are going to tell you half a dozen conflicting lies every 20 minutes. Oh bartender. We'd like an Allie-tini on the rocks, please. To go.

Michael Snow, 44

New York, N.Y.

Occupation: Personal event planner

Survivor skills: Michael was a founding member of the "Whole World Theater" in Atlanta, which is still running today, so we guess that means ... nothing because he isn't involved any longer. His hobbies are running, attending theater and the movies, knitting and photobombing. Now those are skills we don't even see in a survivor.

Survivability: His pet peeve is crazy people, saying "If you can't think rationally, stay away from me." Michael gets our nomination to be the first person this season to go down the crazy route himself. And he may soon get his wish about people staying away from him. Far, far away.

Shamar Thomas, 27

Brooklyn, N.Y.

Occupation: Iraq War veteran

Survivor skills: Shamar is an ex-Marine who loves his grandmother, hates people who chew with their mouths open and is none too happy with "civilians" who "lack passion or enthusiasm about their jobs." Since he probably could clean and jerk our Chevy, we'd just like to say we love our job with an enthusiastic passion, hoo yah.

Survivability: Military guys struggle with this game when they expect their fellow tribemates to get with the plan and give their all for the good of the company, er, tribe. Despite alliances, it just doesn't work that way because while team has no "I" in it, a "million bucks" does. His team will ride his strength until he becomes a threat, and then Shamar will be dishonorably discharged.

Reynold Toepfer, 30

San Francisco, Calif.

Occupation: Real estate sales

Survivor skills: He's strong. He's intense. He's charming. He thrives in stressful situations. He can blend in like smoke in fog. In other words, he's going to be in for a rude awaking.

Survivability: Reynold is our pick to be this season's Mr. Nature, the guy who suddenly starts each day by saluting the sun, talking in the third person and finding mystical significance in a feather dropped into his rice by a seagull right after he asked the gods for a sign that he is a Sky Warrior. Know what? We hate that guy and so will his tribemates.
