Although Candice Cody says she’s never been a fan of Redemption Island as a viewer, the three-time castaway says she loved it having the opportunity to benefit from the game-changing twist on Survivor: Blood Vs. Water. On top of that, Candice admits that while she was upset to see her husband get voted out of the game, she was happy to have him at her side on Redemption Island. I had the chance to chat with Candice as she explained why she was such an early target in the game, how she feels about Brad Culpepper today and why she actually doesn’t think the Redemption Island twist is a great addition to the game.
Her legacy will forever be: “F*ck you, Brad Culpepper!” Marissa Peterson, an outspoken, strong competitor voted out of Survivor: Blood Vs. Water far too early became arch enemies with the former NFL player. Her time at Redemption Island Arena involved multiple duels: The actual competition to stay alive and her war of words with Brad. I spent some time chatting with Marissa today to find out how she feels about Brad now and how she felt watching him get voted out. Jump in and enjoy!
Contestants on Survivor should never get too cocky, for, what may seem like a solid alliance can fall apart at a moment’s notice. Such was the case on last night’s episode of Survivor: Blood Vs Water, when former leader Brad Culpepper found himself the target of a tribal elimination.
It’s been on the air for well over a decade, so how in the world does Survivor manage to keep throwing in new twists and turns? Tonight, fans experience yet another first, as the spouses of Survivor: Blood Vs Water duke it out. How will lovebirds John and Candice Cody perform under pressure?
Before Rachel Foulger set foot in the Philippines, Survivor: Blood Vs. Water host Jeff Probst didn’t have much faith in her. In multiple pre-game predictions, Probst constantly said that he thought Rachel would be out of the game very early. He was right. She fell victim at the second Redemption Island duel and found herself walking out of the game, leaving her boyfriend, Tyson, behind to compete for both of them. Since we didn’t really get to see too much of Rachel (and her elimination will forever be overshadowed by Colton Cumbie’s quit), I spent some time talking with her to learn a bit more about her time on the show.
Jeff Probst hates quitters, which is why Colton Cumbie should have thought twice before landing himself with that dreaded title on the latest season of Survivor. Too late now! How did Jeff respond to Colton’s much-anticipated return to and quick departure from reality TV?
Ah, Colton Cumbie. The much-despised Survivor castaway has done it again. After an apparent medical problem resulted in his elimination on Survivor: One World, Colton, one of the most controversial contestants ever, threw in the towel and quit Survivor: Blood Vs. Water. It was a choice not taken lightly by host Jeff Probst who berated Colton for quitting. Probst accused Colton of faking a medical condition so he could quit the first time and called him out for being a lousy player. I had the opportunity to chat with Colton where he took some shots back at Probst for picking on him. But that’s not all… Colton claims he didn’t quit for selfish reasons — but quit because he’s a selfless person. How? Jump inside the article to find out!
Rupert Boneham is without question one of the most popular castaways ever to compete on Survivor. He’s so popular with viewers that CBS made him the second player in the show’s 27-season history to compete four times (“Boston Rob” Mariano is the other). The three times he played before, Rupert made it fairly deep into the game — especially Survivor: All-Stars and Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains. But this time, Survivor: Blood Vs. Water left him swimming with the sharks very very early. I had the chance to chat with Rupert today about his early demise from the game. Does he regret anything? Would he play again? Did he ever consider voting out his own wife? You can read all the details in our one-on-one interview inside this story!
Did you catch the premiere of Survivor the other night? You might have noticed that host Jeff Probst referred to former NFL star Brad Culpepper by his last name. Typically, this distinction arrives only after contestants have proven themselves worthy, or, in Cochran’s case, demanded a name change. What gives?
Elisabeth Hasselbeck is back on TV with her debut on the Fox News Morning show, Fox & Friends. The finalist from the second season of Survivor left The View in July after 10 years on the women-hosted gab fest. So what did she have to say about her former show on her first day?
