A Latino will be one of 16 “Survivors” this fall.

Cuban-American Albert Destrade, 26, will be part of the cast for Survivor: South Pacific, which premiers Sept. 14.

Destrade, who lives in South Florida, lists his career as baseball/dating coach. He is a nephew of sports analyst Orestes Destrade, who once played for the New York Yankees, the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Florida Marlins.

The Latino hottie says in his cast bio that he’ll win the show because “I know that I possess a unique combination of attributes that would make me a favorite in this game. I’m athletic and very socially adept. I’m calculated and self-aware. Ultimately, if you combine my awareness, physical strength and social calibration, I bring a lot to the table.”

Buena suerte, Albert.
