Within moments of the 20 castaways preparing to begin Survivor: Blood Vs. Water, Laura Boneham was voted out of the game and sent to Redemption Island. But because her husband, four-time castaway, Rupert, sacrificed himself and swapped places, she made it nearly to the merge. In every interview Rupert has done for this season — including his one-on-one-interview with me, he constantly claims that he would never, under any circumstance, ever have voted against Laura. She, on the other hand, says it was something she very likely could have been forced to do. Find out why she would have taken her own blood out of the competition in my one-on-one interview with Laura.
Having a size 12 shoe sure didn’t help John Cody on Survivor: Blood Vs. Water. The 30-year-old doctor says the footholds on the poles during the Redemption Island endurance challenge spelled certain doom for him based on his large feet alone. John, who was preceded in Survivor death by his three-time castaway wife, Candice, burned his buff in a game I truly believe he could have won. I spoke one-on-one with John about his pre-merge boot to discuss why he didn’t go barefoot in his game-ending challenge. But that’s not all… John also reveals why he was so emotional during the game and revealed details about his search for that pesky hidden Immunity Idol.
Survivor: Blood Vs. Water Exclusive Interview — Kat Edorsson Was Initially Casted With A Different Loved OneOctober 31, 2013 03:06:57 by Ryan Haidet
Survivor: Blood Vs. Water was an emotional experience for Kat Edorsson right before her elimination. The two-time castaway didn’t want to leave the game and her boyfriend, Hayden Moss, behind. But if it weren’t for a last-minute job opportunity for one of Kat’s other loved ones, Hayden never would have played this season. Find out who was actually supposed to compete with Kat inside our one-on-one chat about her time on the show.
When it comes to villains on Survivor: Blood Vs. Water, former NFL player Brad Culpepper is the primary culprit. He was disliked by many tribemates, cussed out with harsh words from Marissa Peterson, accused of shushing women and a predictable target for social media bashing by fans of the show. When I talked with Brad after he was officially booted from the game in this week’s episode, he addressed being considered a villain — but disagreed with the title. He repeatedly said his strategy this season was to make sure he wasn’t hurting Monica’s success at potentially winning the game. But that’s just the tip of the pigskin. Brad had lots more to say…
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?
