OK, so you’re about to be stranded in the wilderness and you’ve got to pick one of two teams to help you try and survive.

Do you throw in your lot with a bus driver, a model, a former pop star, and a bartender, or would you side with a pro cyclist, a hairstylist, an army sergeant and a school principal?

Hmmm… neither sounds too great so far.

But it’s just been revealed that the contestants on the 18th season of Survivor will be lumped in with one of these two mismatched little crews and dumped in some desperate corner of the Brazilian highlands called the Tocantins.

The show promises that it’s going to be "one of the most rugged locations ever," and for 39 days the 16 castaways will battle "scorching temperatures, torrential downpours, and dangerous wildlife" — which all sounds just perfect for watching from under a comforter on your lovely warm couch.

Survivor: Tocantins — the Brazilian Highlands premieres Thursday, Feb. 12 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, hosted by Jeff Probst.
