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?
Although the cast of Survivor: Blood Vs. Water has been spoiled for months online, CBS has officially announced the full lineup (see video inside this article). The 20 castaways feature 10 returning players and 10 newcomers. The twist? Each castaway is going into the game with a loved one to see if blood is in fact thicker than water. Would you betray your own blood for $1 million? The relationships vary as follows: dating couples, married couples, mother/daughter, uncle/niece, engaged and brothers. Who is back on the beach for another shot at the title of sole Survivor? Who is in the game for the first time? Meet the entire cast inside this story!
Elisabeth Hasselbeck has made quite the name for herself as the spunky yet politically conservative co-host of The View, to which she bid farewell to today. If you’re a fan of the former Survivor contestant and don’t want to see her go, rest assured that this is not the last you will see of her! In fact, Hasselbeck will be heading over to Fox News before you know it!
