Sixteen of the 18 castaways on “Survivor: South Pacific” (debuting Sept. 14) were revealed by CBS Monday —  and the list includes one Long Islander, Christine Shields Markoski, a 39-year-old teacher from Merrick.

Two more castaways will be named later -- they’re both former contestants who will be given another chance.

LI has, of course, already given the show one champ —  Sayville firefighter Tom Westman back in ‘04.

This edition, by the way, will bring back the popular “Redemption Island” feature that was the signature of the most recent edition.
