Parvati Shallow: These are the 9 teams that
will be competing on Survivor San Juan Del Sur - Blood
Jeff Probst: In Blood vs Water the first one,
we realized we can bring loved ones out and complicate
the game even more. It did so well that we
thought, "Let's do it again and let's do it with
Parvati: What do you think about this cast as
Probst: I think they're actually pretty
diverse not only in color and background or in
lifestyle but also just points of view.
Jeremy Collins: I'm a firefighter.
Val: And I'm a police officer.
Jeremy: We've been married for almost 10
Val: I think that being a police and
firefighter, we're used to fending for other
people. We're used to kind of taking the hit to
protect somebody else.
Jaclyn Schultz: That's
Jon Misch: That's my girlfriend.
Parvati: Why were you selected for the show?
Jaclyn: I think we both have really
interesting backgrounds. Jon played football for
Michigan State. I was Miss Michigan.
Jon: Obviously she's gorgeous.
Jaclyn: But then there's like this whole
other layer where I was born with a syndrome where I
can have kids. We wanna win the money so we can
married and have a surrogate or adopt.
Natalie Anderson: We feel in so many
gaps. We have the minority gap, we have the girl
gap, we have the twins gap.
Nadiya Anderson: Amazing Race was an amazing
experience but Survivor, it's right up our
alley. Everybody back home thinks we're crazy
Natalie: I'm hoping nobody recognizes us from
The Race. But if they do they'll definitely know
that together me and Nadiya are really strong.
Drew Christy: I'm a sales rep and I'm a
model, so my life is just so crazy. I just don't
know what I'm gonna do tomorrow. The other
contestants are gonna be a little bit intimidated by
me cause of my stature, my athletic ability, my social
ability that I naturally have.
Alec Christy: I think that we can feed off of
each other without teaming up. Seeming Drew do
well on the other tribe is going to turn me up and
make me want to do better for sure.
Dale Wentworth: I'm born and raised on the
farm. I've moved 800 feet. I moved from my
parents house to where I live now.
Parvati: Tell us why you decided to do
Kelley Wentworth: It's all about
Dale: We'll be tweeting and instagramming
with everybody on the show. At the end of the
day, 39 days out, I want to be able to talk to my
daughter, I want to have a paycheck.
Missy Payne: I'm married a couple times...
Baylor Wilson: Three.
Missy: ...and divorced...okay. I've
been divorced three times. So she's been along
for the ride.
Baylor: I definitely don't feel 20 a lot of
days. Like, I've dealt with enough to be
30. It will help me in this game because I know
what to look for in other people. I'm pretty
good at picking out the deceivers versus the
Probst: They're funnier than groups we've had
in the past.
Reed Kelly: We're both performers by
trade. We're both singer/dancer/actors.
Josh Canfield: Being gay Christians I think
is so unusual for a lot of people. I think they're
like, wait, you're gay and you're a Christian?
How does that work? Because normally those two
camps are fighting against each other.
Keith Nale: We're father/son.
Firefighters. We're here to win Survivor.
Wes Nale: Yeah.
Keith: Cut and dry. I'm not quite ready to
turn the reigns over to him, yet. I've got a few
more ticks left in me. It's not like, hey go
ahead and take it to the end, I'll just step
aside. That's not goin' happen.
Wes: He's still in ???? because I'm still
living at home.
Keith: He's still at the
Wes: That's why I need to win, because I need
to get out of the house.
Keith: Momma can't cut the cord. We're
kind of outdoor guys anyway. In Louisiana, you
don't sit around on the couch. You get
outside. Sportsman Paradise,
John Rocker: I was raised in a professional
baseball clubhouse and still carry a lot of that
idiocy with me. Even people that liked me and
those that didn't like me, they never really have seen
that side. They don't see the real John.
As far as negatives, it's just going to be overcoming
the obvious stereotypes. The 6 foot 5 guy, ex
baseball player. He's obviously
egotistical. He's obviously a jerk.
Julie McGee: If and when they find out who he
is, then they're all going to think that I'm just like
this chick he...
John: She already told me that she'd throw me
under the bus.
Julie: If there's an opportunity, I'm gonna
Probst: That is when Survivor is at its best,
is when we really do have a true cross section of
America and you have to work together while voting
each other out.
