Before even setting foot in the Philippines, Aras Baskauskas already had a four-way alliance on Survivor: Blood Vs. Water. But that all crumbled when Gervase Peterson, his primary pal, opted to oust him. In my one-on-one interview with Aras, the season 12 winner dished the dirt on how he formed a pre-game alliance with Gervase, explained how Survivor changed the relationship with his brother and revealed who his primary ally would be if CBS had an all-winner season.
The heartbreaking story of Todd Herzog’s alcohol abuse has been a hot topic among the reality TV community recently – and now, we got a deeper look at his personal struggles. Dr. Phil dedicated an entire hour to Todd’s alcoholism on Monday saying he had never seen a guest on his show more close to death. Todd was 22 years old when he won Survivor: China six years ago (read my interview with him immediately after he won). At that point in his life, Todd says he never had a drink. Since then, Todd has been admitted to the hospital multiple times – once with a blood-alcohol content of .582. It was a mark so high that doctors had told Todd’s family they had never seen anybody reach that level without being in a comatose state. An intervention was needed and Dr. Phil made sure that happened. Read how it all went down inside this article…
Quite a few controversial figures have appeared on Bethenny Frankel’s talk show these past few weeks, ostensibly in hopes of increasing the program’s stubbornly mediocre ratings. The latest train wreck to join the party? Big Brother alum and former baby bride Courtney Stodden.
Jeff Probst has spent plenty of time in the Philippines these past few years, what with the filming of four seasons of Survivor. Given the great fondness he feels for the friendly people he’s met while abroad, it only stands to reason that the reality television host is deeply saddened by news of Typhoon Haiyan.
Jeff Probst sans clothes equals complete hotness! Who knew the handsome host of Survivor was also such a a hot hunk of man? While we are used to seeing half naked contestants on Survivor, we’ve never seen Jeff Probst this way, but Probst stripped down to nothing for an appearance on Two And A Half Men, and we’ll never be able to look at him the same again. It’s a good thing though – check out his smoking hot photo inside!
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.
