For 36 hours after being voted onto the all-star season of “Survivor: Second Chance” in a live TV special last May, the cast of the CBS reality hit were sequestered in a hotel, preparing to depart for Cambodia.

Without TV, phones, or Internet, they didn’t even have any idea how the moment played out on TV.

However, during the L.A. press availability for Season 31, TheWrap asked returning “Survivor” alums including Kelly Wigglesworth, Kass McQuillen, Spencer Bledsoe, Stephen Fischbach, Terry Dietz, Jeff Varner and Andrew Savage to watch and respond to the news they had been hoping for — some of them for 15 years.

Click the video above to see how the cast of “Survivor: Second Chance” reacted to seeing themselves on the telecast for the first time.

“Survivor: Second Chance” premieres Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
