Suitably jaunty? Cameron Daddo hosts a new CBS reality hour.

Reality maestro Mark Burnett has a sinking ship in Donald Trump's The Apprentice while Survivor is starting to take on a little water.

Still, he's got a new hit under his belt in Fox's Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? And now Burnett hopes to further fatten his treasure chest with CBS' new Pirate Master.

The high-seas sweepstakes will premiere on Thursday, May 31 in Survivor's time slot, with 16 mates vying for weekly booty. Your host is Cameron Daddo, an Aussie actor whose credits range from a guest shot on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation to the feature film Big Mama's House 2.

CBS describes the show as an "epic adventure" starring made-for-TV buccaneers on board a ship traveling around the Caribbean island of Dominica. In the end, only one will claim the title of "Pirate Master."

The network has gone a bit overboard with an over-the-top clip of what to expect. See for yourself:
