Press Release


CBS ANNOUNCES THE 20 RETURNING CASTAWAYS COMPETING ON THE NEXT EDITION OF ďSURVIVORĒ


Special Two-Hour Season Premiere, Themed ďGame Changers,Ē

Airs Wednesday, March 8

The Season Premiere Marks the 500th Episode of the Series





Mana Tribe



Nuku Tribe






CBS announced today the 20 castaways who will compete against each other on SURVIVOR, when the Emmy Award-winning series returns for its 34th season with a special two-hour premiere, Wednesday, March 8 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Notably, the season premiere marks the 500th episode of the series.

ďWhen we started this adventure, I donít think anybody would have predicted weíd still be going strong 17 years later!Ē said host and executive producer Jeff Probst. ďIím as enthusiastic as ever and love the relationship we have with our audience. I think SURVIVOR fans are really going to enjoy this season.Ē

In the summer of 2000, the premiere of SURVIVOR introduced a mentally challenging, physically demanding and strategically complex adventure series to television. This springís edition, themed ďGame Changers,Ē will feature 20 returning castaways who helped evolve the game even further by launching an accelerated level of competition and proven willingness to risk it all in order to become the Sole Survivor. These castaways who have made some of the biggest moves in the history of the game will be divided into two groups of 10 and forced to compete against each other with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast each other. The show, filmed in the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji, is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst.

The following are the 20 returning castaways, including the previously announced two-time winner Sandra Diaz-Twine; fan-favorites Cirie Fields, Ciera Easton and Tai Trang; challenge dominator Ozzy Lusth; Cagayan winner Tony Vlachos; Millennial stand-out Michaela Bradshaw; and Caleb Reynolds, who was medically evacuated from his earlier season.


Andrea Boehlke

Age: 27
Hometown: New York, NY
Previously played on:
Season 22: Redemption Island, Finished 5th & Jury Member
Season 26: Caramoan, Finished 7th & Jury Member

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iím older and wiser! I was only 21 the first time I played Survivor and then 23 during my second season. I definitely feel more confident as a person, so, hopefully this translates to the game and I'm not-so paranoid.

I'm also not so boy crazy, which is ideal!

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
I'm confident in my challenge skills, so I know I'll be a great asset early on. After playing two seasons, I know how to work my social skills to form a solid group.

My biggest hurdle will be to not come across as a schemer. In Caramoan, I was constantly on the chopping block for that reason, so I've been coming up with strategies to avoid that.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
I was pretty satisfied with my game in Caramoan for the reason that I was able to last as long as I did despite being high on the hit list of many people. I was also proud of myself for being able to laugh at being blindsided, and realize it's just a game.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
Ha! There's a long list, but off the top of my head it would have to be finding myself in a showmance again! Not playing the Idol! Trusting Cochran!

How will you play differently this time?
I will have to play a low-key aggressive game. I definitely tried to overcorrect my Redemption Island game by playing very aggressively in Caramoan, but I think everyone could see I was trying to "make moves."

I have to find some sort of balance between the two and also try to break away from my "us vs. them" old-fashioned way of playing the game. I have to be open to working with every single person.



Aubry Bracco

Age: 30
Hometown: Cambridge, MA
Previously played on: Season 32: Brains Vs. Brawn Vs. Beauty, Runner Up

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iím more assertive, confident, and grounded in who I am. In my last season, I logically knew I could play and do well. This time, I believe it. I have an easier time taking stock of the cards on the table, making decisions, and rolling with the consequences.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
I bring the confidence in my physical abilities. In KaŰh Rōng, I proved I was a brain who could hang with brawn. I might not look athletic, but I am. Iíve been working on core strength and balance.

Emotionally, I'm more grounded than I was. I can be an attractive ally or confidant to other tribe mates, especially those on the outskirts, without letting those relationships drain me.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
I am beyond proud that I made it to Day 39 despite encountering some obstacles, including:

- Having a horrendous Day 2.
- Crappily executing the Pete vote. This time, I'll be folding the paper up, eating it for fiber, and taking a new parchment if I change my mind.
- My infection.
- Two closest allies being medically evacuated.
- Being forced to make fire to save myself.

I managed some tough personalities and assembled a ragtag group to vote out Scot, which felt like dismantling a bomb, making sure all the wires were where they needed to be.

Overall, I may have bumped into more obstacles than a ball in a pinball machine, but I played proactively. I owned my actions and fate, and I did it in a way that was true to me.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
I wish I could take back every second of every one of the five days I lived with Nick. Oh, and I regret letting Joe eat all the red meat.

How would you play differently this time?
Going into Game Changers, I know Iíll have a target on my back, especially since other players will have just seen my season. I canít play under the radarÖ people wonít buy it. I plan to align with a variety of people, including power players and villains to pad myself.

In Survivor 34, I will:

1. Do with certainty and apologize later.
2. Be friendly with more people and have intense relationships with less.
3. Execute with finesse.



Brad Culpepper

Age: 47
Hometown: Tampa, FL
Previously played on: Season 27: Blood Vs. Water, Finished 15th

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iím one year older.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
Iím a worker. Self-awareness, to a degree.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
Set up some blindsides that helped [my wife] Monica get to the end.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
Not making sure my alliance [with Caleb] was cool prior to Tribal.

How will you play differently this time?
Slow down out of the gate, then ramp up as game evolves.



Caleb Reynolds

Age: 28
Hometown: Hopkinsville, KY
Previously played on: Season 32: Brain Vs. Brawn Vs. Beauty, Medically Evacuated

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iíve grown up a lot and have been watching past seasons, studying strategy and game.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
Iím a hunter/gatherer. I can build shelter, make fire with sticks, get food, and Iím a physical beast. Iím hard to outlast. I have been learning more about mental games.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
I gave it my all and I didnít get voted out. I made my tribe proud and went out swinging.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
Nothing!



Ciera Eastin

Age: 27
Hometown: Salem, OR
Previously played on:
Season 27: Blood Vs. Water, Finished 5th & Jury Member
Season 31: Second Chances, Finished 10th

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iím more determined, more active, driven, and living with more intent.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
Iím very positive and keep the morale up. Now that Iíve played two times, Iím pretty good at making rice and helping around camp.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
Iím very proud of not being timid and doing the season alone without the support of my mother, fearlessly.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
I regret being complacent and getting too into the experience and adventure, and not staying focused.

How will you play differently this time?
This time, I am taking the game more seriously and I want to be more focused, stay driven, and not become complacent.



Cirie Fields

Age: 45
Hometown: Norwalk, CT
Previously played on:
Season 12: Panama, Finished 4th & Jury member
Season 16: Micronesia, Finished 3rd & Jury member
Season 20: Heroes Vs. Villains, Finished 17th

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iíve matured mentally. Plus, Iím healthier, stronger, and in better shape.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
Fire-making and trap-making.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
Letting my emotions get the best of me!

How will you play differently this time?
Iíll be less aggressive, less emotional, and more physically fit.



Debbie Wanner

Age: 51
Hometown: Reading, PA
Previously played on: Season 32: Brains Vs. Brawn Vs. Beauty, Finished 9th

How have you changed since the last time you played?
For all the magic and mystery in playing Survivor, I'm more patently aware of how people can see and hear the exact same event/conversation and have widely different opinions/reactions/interpretations of said event.

I'm making a concerted effort to view situations through other people's minds and eyes.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
I'm a worker around camp and wasóand willóbe a contributor; do what you can to make camp as hospitable as it can be, given the savagery of the environment and the fierce competition. When it comes to voting someone out at Tribal, I want to keep in mind just one thing: any name but mine will do just fine.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
For all its strange alchemy and upheavals of emotion, energy, and stomach, I enjoyed it all with exuberance and an ability to laugh and forgive myself and others.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
Not making more of an effort to reach out to Scot and Jason. Everyone and anyone can be an ally, if only for one vote.

How will you play differently this time?
Attempt to reach out to as many people as possible while still maintaining sincerity and decency. I know we are just playing a game, but attachments happen, and feelings really do get bruised.

If I'm going to lie, I hope not to be too much of a wanker about it. Keep the lines of communication open to all and try not to let slights, injustices, real or imagined, get to me.

Perhaps gain 10 lbs, as well; foraging for food often uses more energy than we got from finally eating it. Survivor is EXHAUSTING, mentally and physically, I'd like to keep a mental picture of many rescued animals, safe and happy, to remind me of why I'm playing again.



Hali Ford

Age: 26
Hometown: San Francisco, CA
Previously played on: Season 30: White, Blue, No Collar, Finished 11th & Jury Member

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iím back with a honed sense of self, a new passion for Survivor, and a vendetta from my wasted last game.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
I easily make strong social connections with many personality types, I'm resourceful and handy when it comes to living off the land, and I'm decently smart.

I'd say the most valuable skill I've learned since my last game is how to play Survivor. I've also become a bonafide criminal-defense attorney, which involves battling cop shenanigans on the daily, which I expect may be a thing in this game.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
NOTHING. Honestly, I would not put my name on anything I did in the last game.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
EVERYTHING. But if I must name only one regret, it has to be failing to switch strategies immediately at the merge.

How will you play differently this time?
My head and heart were everywhere but in the game last time. This time, I'm going balls-to-the-wall. If it's a crime to play Survivor with abandon, take me to jail after the final Tribal Council.

We've got some heavyweights in this game and I'm ready to claim their titles.



James ďJTĒ Thomas Jr.

Age: 31
Hometown: Mobile, AL
Previously played on:
Season 18: Tocantins, Winner
Season 20: Heroes Vs. Villains, Finished 10th

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iíve definitely been humbled. I have become a little more patient and I donít think Iím quite as gullible.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
I think I bring many skills to the table. I will always play with all my heart, which has allowed me to overcome many obstacles in my life.

I plan to build a very strong team and lead them to the merge. From there, Iíll have to play with the hand I'm dealt to the best of my ability.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
My ability to understand that I would have to make a big move to win the game and my guts to act on it.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
I most regret the moment I climbed down from the pole in the Immunity Challenge that led to my dismissal. I knew it would be hard to win, so I let myself climb down. If I hadnít climbed down, I could have held onto the pole for a lot longer.

I let myself take the easy way out, which is hardly ever the best decision. Hunger and conditions clouded my judgment without me recognizing it.

How will you play differently this time?
I will be more careful about picking my allies. More importantly, I will play a more aggressive Idol-tracking game, and a more determined and fierce challenge game.



Jeff Varner

Age: 50
Hometown: High Point, NC
Previously played on:
Season 2: Australia, Finished 10th out of 16 & Non-Jury
Season 31: Second Chances, Finished 17th

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iím more physically fit, less emotional, and smarter. I'm still me and could pop off at any time without warning, but I'm focused on being calmer.

I'm honored to be part of this cast and aware this could be the last time I'm ever on a Survivor island, so I want to soak up the surroundings, beauty, and energy of being part of this landmark series.

I just played this game, so the excitement of being back is more tempered by a focus to not get too carried away.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
Iíll be much more useful at challenges and intend to be more instrumental around camp. I want strong relationships when this is over, but already have a host of great friends.

I make mistakes, but I'm a good person with a good heart. I hope America sees that. But if my competition doesn't, their loss.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
Being chosen by America, by far! Also, my instinctual gameplay. My ability to control a volatile group of people and be the determining factor as to who went home on the first two boots.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
Going too hard, too soon. Playing with too much emotion in the beginning. Drawing the Angkor buff. No matter how good of a game you're playing, drawing the wrong buff can change everything.

How will you play differently this time?
I want to have more fun this time. Iíll combine my Outback and Cambodia stylesóhard gameplay with a more subtle approach. I plan to try and control my emotions more. As best as circumstances allow, Iíll manage a swap better.

I plan to align myself with the big threats. Even if I end up in the minority after a swap, I'll make sure there is someone else with me who is more of a target.

This time, itís all business. I'd love to make the Jury finally, but if I don't, I want to make sure I've soaked it all up in a way that it's okay.



Malcolm Freberg

Age: 29
Hometown: Hermosa Beach, CA
Previously played on:
Season 25: Philippines, Finished 4th & Jury Member
Season 26: Caramoan, Finished 9th & Jury Member

How have you changed since the last time you played?
1. My hair isóincrediblyóeven thicker than before.
2. Rewatched an unhealthy amount of Disney movies and discovered I relate more to the villains. Gaston was misunderstood.
3. Got a little fat.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
I can do all the outdoorsman stuff. We know this. What Iíve gotten better at is emotions, vulnerability, and feelings and stuff.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
I donít do base hits. I swing for the fencesófor better or worse.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
Losing. Also, wearing way too much plaid.

How will you play differently this time?
Same big moves, but more finesse. Iím still going to find all the Idols, still going to wreck folks, but being a little older and a little wiseróLOLóshould get me paid this time around.

Please bring back the oversized checks for my coronation.



Michaela Bradshaw

Age: 25
Hometown: Fort Worth, TX
Previously played on: Season 33: Millennials Vs. Gen X, Finished 14th

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Since Millennials Vs. Gen X, I've found it a lot easier to take action in the face of fear. After surviving loneliness, starvation, physical exhaustion, and exposure to the elements, I just can't allow silly things like ďwhat-if" scenarios to have control over me.

Also, I find that my reaction is to laugh at ridiculous things as opposed to becoming upset or angry. Whether itís an annoying person, an unexpected delay, or a letdown of some sort, I just don't have the energy to be upset at anything that can't win me $1 million.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
I bring intelligence and realness to this game. In a game filled with paranoid people who thrive on deception, those qualities are a breath of fresh air to some.

Since Millennials Vs. Gen X, I've been learning how to hide what I'm thinking and what I'm capable of to some degree. I found out first hand that in a game for $1 million, no one wants to play with someone they think they can't beat.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
I'm most proud of the fact that I broke a lot of stereotypes. I was the woman who carried my tribe. I was the black girl who could swim and wasn't afraid to get her hair wet. I was the emotional one who could still make a logical decision. I was the "athlete" who was actually intelligent and articulate. I didn't fit in a box, and I liked that about myself.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
I regret not understanding the importance of perception. What's real doesn't matter in this game. What people think and how they feel is what matters. My mistake in Millennials Vs. Gen X was not paying close enough attention to how others felt.

How will you play differently this time?
I will play differently by monitoring how I am perceived. Instead of bucking the system, I'm going to "play the game."



Oscar ďOzzyĒ Lusth

Age: 34
Hometown: Venice, CA
Previously played on:
Season 13: Cook Islands, Runner-Up
Season 16: Micronesia, Finished 9th & Jury Member
Season 23: South Pacific, Finished 4th & Jury Member

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iím older and wiser. Iíve experienced some major family loss so Iím more ďin the moment.Ē

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
Patience, listening, and the ability to get along with others.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
Enjoying the experience and taking big risks.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
Choking on the final challenge.

How will you play differently this time?
I will build my original alliance more carefully.



Sandra Diaz-Twine

Age: 41
Hometown: Fayetteville, NC
Previously played on:
Season 7: Pearl Islands, Winner
Season 20: Heroes Vs. Villains, Winner

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iíve gotten older and fatter.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
My ability to get to the end no matter what the situation and being straightforward. I wonít apologize for anything I do.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
Winning again.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
No regrets, period!

How will you play differently this time?
I have no choice but to be a more aggressive-sneaky-mean-lying-and-cheating Sandra.



Sarah Lacina

Age: 32
Hometown: Marion, IA
Previously played on: Season 28: Brains Vs. Brawn Vs. Beauty, Finished 11th & Jury Member

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iím more cut-throat now. Iím not out there to make friends and Iím willing to go against my word.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
Iím a hard worker. I have a great social game. I can fish and hunt. Iím not lazy or stupid. Iím athletic.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
I feel like I had so much game left. Iím not really proud of the way I played. I chose my word and loyalty over $1 million. I would not make that mistake again.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
I regret sticking to my morals and values. It's Survivoróyou have to play the game!

How will you play differently this time?
I will do whatever it takes to win. The only purpose for me going back out there is to win a million dollars. I donít care about making friends or what anyone thinks of me. Theyíll get over it.



Sierra Thomas

Age: 29
Hometown: Roy, UT
Previously played on: Season 30: White, Blue, No Collar, Finished 5th & Jury Member

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iím physically stronger, more aware, and better at reading people. Also, emotionally, I am less sensitive.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
I can do anything outdoorsy! Iím physically strong, loyal, easy to talk to, and people trust me. I am in better physical shape than I have ever been. I practice puzzles every day. Iím mentally and physically ready.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
My loyalty. I set aside pride and played the game. I am proud of my physical strength. I was a strong competitor in every challenge.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
I regret not making a big move and to win, you have to. This time I am willing and ready to do whatever it takes.

How will you play differently this time?
Last time, I focused too much on my social game. I know itís important, but I need to use the friendships I make to an advantage. I want to make big moves, blindsides, and do things that make me worthy to win. I am a physically strong competitor. I am bound and determined to win the Immunity necklace numerous times!



Tai Trang

Age: 52
Hometown: San Francisco, CA
Previously played on: Season 32: Brain Vs. Brawn Vs. Beauty, 2nd Runner-up

How have you changed since the last time you played?
After playing and watching my season unfold, I am more aware and appreciative of how complex Survivor is. I see my pitfalls and how I can improve. It's a delicate balance of being true to oneself and developing trust and friendships, while at the same time knowing who I think I can beat at the end.

I hope I have not become jaded or less trustful now. Each game is unique with its own dynamics and I just need to be open and see where it takes me. I need the knowledge from my past season, but not baggage.

Survivor is so great and winning is my ultimate goal.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
I have proven that I work hard and am helpful around camp. I can start a fire and keep it going. I am resourceful and can forage and fish for food.

I am loyal, a nice guy, and get along well with everyone. I am pretty positive and can keep thing light and bring harmony to camp. I am small, but strong and would be good in team challenges.

Since the last time I played, I have been taking yoga to focus my mind and strengthen my core. I am also trying to improve my lousy hand and eye coordination by playing in a Bocce ball league.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
Blindsiding Scot [and] Jason, and sending Scot home. I am proud that I broke away from their alliance to have a voice and played my own game. Deciding on my own destiny resulted in making the Final 3.

And, yes, I am so happy to have saved Mark, the chicken. I worked really hard foraging for food so others didn't eat him.

I am also proud to bring awareness to how we humans need to take care of our environment and have compassion for other living things.

What, if anything, do you most regret?
I regret not managing the Jury better and not being able to articulate, own, and defend all that I accomplished during the game. I regret spending so much time and energy providing for camp which took me away from the game play.

Toward the end, I was completely depleted which affected how I played and performed at the final Tribal.

How will you play differently this time?
I am much more confident about the game now. I know I have a lot to offer and I can get along with everyone; now it's time to create strong relationships. It's good to have friends in both an alliance and on the Jury. I will be much more observant and aware of my position within the rest of the tribe.

I need to be more flexible and fluid in this ever-changing game of strategy, focusing on the bigger picture of winning the game rather than personal friendships. Most of all, I would like to be myself, take risks, and have fun hanging with all these big Survivor legends.



Tony Vlachos

Age: 42
Hometown: Jersey City, NJ
Previously played on: Season 28: Brawn Vs. Brains Vs. Beauty, Winner

How have you changed since the last time you played?
I'm older and much wiser. Just kidding. I'm older, but definitely not wiser. You will see the same guy in this season as you saw in Cagayan.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
Unfortunately, the skills I bring to Survivor are skills that will NOT make me a useful member. Instead, they will make me a very threatening member.

I haven't learned any new skills since I played on Cagayan, which could be my downfall going back on an all returnee season. I wish I could have learned the skill of being able to be quiet and try to play under the radar, but I don't see that happening. Itís just not in my DNA.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
WINNING!!

What, if anything, do you most regret?
There is seriously nothing I regret. Everything I did on Cagayan was on the fly. Some things were based off of emotion, some based off of strategy, but nothing was based off of malice.

In the end, it all fell into place and I became the Sole Survivor.

How will you play differently this time?
Going into the game this time around, with all the players knowing my game style, I know that I'm going to be a huge threat. Having said that, I know I will have to take it down a few notches until I can plant my roots.

Knowing myself, I wonít be able to take it down any notches and will be in trouble. I hope I have what it takes to adapt right away and "go with the flow"óif thatís even possible for me to do.

I will have my fingers crossed for sure!



Troy ďTroyzanĒ Robertson

Age: 54
Hometown: Miami, FL
Previously played on: Season 24: One World, Finished 8th & Jury Member

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Iím mentally stronger and more prepared to be a social person around my tribe in camp life and the game, in general. Iím more aware that most castaways play this as a ďgameĒ and don't play it as real life, so I must adapt to that way of thinking.

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
I've always been 100-percent a team player. And, I also think of myself as a great motivator with the people I'm around. I like taking the leader role in a low-key way.

Iíve lived my life as an adventure and Iím extremely in touch with nature. Iíve been a jungle boy my whole life so fishing, fire-making, and shelter-building come very easily to me.

Also, I've been re-watching past Survivor seasons to pick up any clues I missed the first time around. I work my best to stay young at heart.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
Iím proud that I stayed true to myself. You pretty much saw 100-percent of me! I'm happy that everyone watching, including my tribe mates, got to see all my emotions. Whether I was laughing, smiling, carefree, kind-hearted, ecstatic, sympathetic, happy, sad, angry, irritated, heart-broke, or you name itÖ you got to see it all. All of Troyzan!

I'm also pretty proud of that fact that my rant of ďThis is MY ISLAND!Ē is considered one of the 10 most memorable moments in Survivor history. I'll look back years from now and still laugh at that moment!

What, if anything, do you most regret?
I regret that I didnít confront my enemies face to face more. I also would have called out Kim Spradlin (eventual winner of Survivor: One World) in front of the entire tribe daily!

I was putting too much thought into winning challenges as opposed to letting the tribe see the obvious plan Kim had. My mistake.

How will you play differently this time?
Iíve realized this is an ďoutwitĒ game more than anything else. Iíll try to keep the bullseye off my back by not showing ALL my cards, like the last time I played.

And, at all costs, ALWAYS in ALL ways keep a person around whoís a bigger target than myself. Keep your friends close and kiss your enemies!



Zeke Smith

Age: 28
Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
Previously played on: Season 33: Millennials Vs. Gen X, Finished 9th & Jury Member

How have you changed since the last time you played?
Since I just played, I donít think Iíve changed at all. Iím still digging sand out of my tush. I keep leaving the apartment barefoot. Iíve taken to sleeping on my neighbor's floor so thereís someone to wake me during my night terrors. They know itís time to shake me awake when I start screaming, ďDave found another Idol!Ē

What skills do you bring to Survivor that will make you a useful member of the group and what skills have you been learning since you last played?
New skills? Well, I went to a friendís party in workout clothes. I brought my own salad, which I ate in a corner and refused to speak to anyone. So, yeah, I can do that now.

What are you most proud of from the last time?
Iím not quite sure. Itís really all a blur. I remember something about forcing rocks to save myself. What, if anything, do you most regret? Nothing. Everything. Nothing. Everything. Chris.

How will you play differently this time?
Frankly, I donít exactly know what I did right or wrong last time but, I think I played too flashy. This go íround, Iím going to play more subtly, because Iím a very subtle person.

Take one look at me and you think, ďThis guy knows subtle. No part of his mustache or patterned shirts or style of speaking says, Ďpay attention to me!íĒ




Shut the flippin' front door! ~~ Do you think you were born awesome, or just grew up badass?
