LOS ANGELES (AP) — Not even “Boston Rob” Mariano’s newborn baby could stop him from returning to “Survivor.”

Mariano is among 20 former contestants who will compete in CBS’ “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,” the reality series’ 20th season, premiering Feb. 11 (8 p.m. EST). He left behind 4-week-old daughter Lucia Rose and wife, Amber Brkich, who bested Mariano to win the “All-Stars” edition in 2004.

The “Marquesas” veteran will be joined on the “villains” tribe by such players as Courtney Yates (“China”); Benjamin “Coach” Wade (“Tocantins”); and Sandra Diaz-Twine (“Pearl Islands”). The “heroes” side will include the likes of Cirie Fields (“Panama,” ”Micronesia”); Tom Westman (“Palau”); and Colby Donaldson (“The Australian Outback,” ”All-Stars”).
