  1. Ron Clark - Kama

    Photo courtesy CBS.COM Age: 46Hometown: Chocowinity, North CarolinaCurrent residence: AtlantaOccupation: Teacher, Ron Clark AcademyHobbies: Life doesn't get any better than giving my Chow Chow pups belly rubs! I also get a kick out of watching the roulette ball spin and land in the single zero, but I think my main hobby is surprising people by making really unique moments for them. When I was a kid my family didn't have money, but my parents put a lot of effort into making simple moments magical. I now try to follow in their footsteps and try my best to do that for my students, friends, and family. I also like telling stories and participating in anything competitive such as poker, pool, trivia, basketball, tennis and "Bamboo Stick Speller," a game my friends and I created. Pet peeves: I'm a sore loser. Like really sore. I'll stew over a Monopoly loss for weeks, wondering, "just where did I go wrong." Also, I hate when people slurp food (like soup) or smack chew gum. People, we can hear you!Three words to describe you: Visionary, compassionate, "mean girl." What is your personal claim to fame? I co-founded the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta where we teach using passion, innovative strategies, and creative methods to inspire all of our students to reach success. Each week, we also train educators from around the world so that they can incorporate our strategies in their schools. To date, over 50,000 educators have visited RCA to receive training, and we are starting a revolution! I hope that doesn't overshadow the fact that back in 2002 I won the Showcase Showdown on The Price is Right.Who or what is your inspiration in life? My students inspire me to do more and be a better person! I love the way they forgive easily, laugh heartily and bounce back. They are great role models! Also: Antoni Gaudí gives me life! He is the most creative genius to ever walk the earth!! If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? A recording device that I could leave under the shelter so that I would always be in the know.A returning player that others would focus on voting out so that the target wouldn't be on me.My wedding ring so I'd be inspired by the love waiting for me at home.Which Survivor contestant are you the most like? I'm a compassionate person, but everyone who knows me well says that during competitions I turn into a villain. I also over analyze everything. For those reasons, I don't think there's a past contestant that is a perfect fit for me, but I think my gameplay will be most like Spencer Bledsoe.What's your reason for being on Survivor? Since Survivor: Borneo I have been hooked. My friends and I have hung on every episode, pausing constantly to debate moves and re-watching our favorite episodes again and again. I tell my students all the time that life is for living and that they should seek to never have regrets. "Dream Big!"After watching Survivor for most of my adult life, I finally decided to take my own advice and apply. I want to live the experience and share my journey with the ones I love. It would be a monumental moment in my life! Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? My passion for life rubs off on people, and with focus, I can change people's moods and get them to follow my lead. I'll use my southern charm to disarm, my big personality to entertain and my loyal nature to disorient.
  2. Photo courtesy CBS.COM Age: 19 Hometown: Fayetteville, North CarolinaCurrent residence: Durham, North CarolinaOccupation: Pre-Med StudentHobbies: Writing and performing my poetry, tennis, playing video/board games, and going to the movies. Pet peeves: When self-absorbed people talk about all the money they have and things they've done, and only actively engage in conversations when the topic is about them or their "equals." Three words to describe you: Religious, competitive, and creative.What is your personal claim to fame? Getting the Jackie Robinson scholarship because I had never before achieved something on a national level. It still amazes me! They had over 3,500 applicants, gave interviews to 140 and awarded only 63. To be a part of that 63 still leaves me in awe and I know it's only by God's grace. Who or what is your inspiration in life? My inspirations are definitely my mom and grandma! Without them there's no way I would be the type of person I am today. They taught me morals, values, and how to always have a loving and caring personality. They've seen me at my lowest times and have never withheld their love for me. We never had much but my mom always made ends meet for me. My grandma was the one who first started me on my walk in faith, which is my biggest rock in life. They are my heroes! If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? My Bible because it would be a constant reminder for me that God is always watching over me! My poetry book because my poetry gives me life! My Black Panther jacket because I'm a Marvel fanatic and it can always bring a smile to my face. Which Survivor contestant are you the most like? I relate to Jeremy Collins because that was a family man. He put his family above all else and played solely for them. My family is the only tangible thing I've always had since day one! They're my reason for everything. I also think I'd love to rely more on social gameplay as he did and connect with people for longevity.What's your reason for being on Survivor? No doubt my primary motivation for being on the show is my family. Since I was born, we've lived in the same trailer without much change. Ever since I was doing well in school, I feel like eyes have been on me to help us out of stagnation. If I can make some things happen to help us go above and beyond, then you can best believe I'm going to be that breakthrough. Survivor may just be that start for me. Secondly, I'm motivated to learn more about myself. I've never had to find my food or stay outside, so I'm ready to see what I can do when tested. And of course, I'm a superfan and this has been a dream of mine! I'm already the youngest black castaway to date. How cool would it be to add being the youngest Sole Survivor onto that?Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I know I can be the Sole Survivor because I've already been living against the odds. Me being a lower-class black man, I wasn't nurtured to be the salutatorian of his class that would be able to afford Duke University of all places. I didn't have the bloodline of doctors to show me how to succeed or the finances to take prep classes for educational opportunities. I didn't even know what class rank or GPA meant until junior year. When I took the Pre-SAT, I asked "What class is this for?" I was set at a disadvantage, yet I made things happen. I went against the grain, and did what I needed to do to put myself on a pre-med track. I'm driven, focused, and possess the willpower to make mountains move. Nothing has stopped me thus far, so no 17 or 19, or however many castaways are going to stop me now!
  3. Photo courtesy CBS.COM Age: 46Hometown: Fairfax, VirginiaCurrent residence: Ashburn, VirginiaOccupation: SalesHobbies: Chess, kickball, and neighborhood security.Pet peeves: Intolerance, humming, bad manners, nose picking, slackers, and snobs. Three words to describe you: Inquisitive, tenacious, and energetic. What is your personal claim to fame? I don't mean to sound cheesy, but my kids! They are good, caring people and I am super proud of that! Who or what is your inspiration in life? Mom. If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? Hat: to stay warm and my hair will be a mess.Hoodie: comfortable, warm, and good for sleeping.Pants. Which Survivor contestant are you the most like? Stephanie LaGrossa because she does not give up and Rudy Boesch because he just does NOT care.What's your reason for being on Survivor? I need to challenge myself. Bucket list dream. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? My social game is amazing and although I am honest to a fault, I know when to chill. I've been watching since 2000—I trust no one. Words mean zero to me. Actions speak louder!
  4. BB Canada - Season 7

    I think the file room does or will contain clues to... something. The Blood Veto perhaps.
  5. Photo courtesy CBS.COM Age: 31Hometown: Ephrata, WashingtonCurrent residence: SeattleOccupation: Marketing ManagerPrevious season: Second Chance, San Juan del SurHobbies: Photography, walking my dogs, and witchcraft on the weekends. Pet peeves: Unseasoned rice, games involving balls, and people who think they're basically badasses.Three words to describe you: Independent, expressive, and stubborn. What's your personal claim to fame?"Wentworth, does not count." x9 Who or what is your inspiration in life?Anyone who won Survivor on their first try. If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? Amazon Prime Fresh delivery, because... food.Clothing options that cover all of my body because... weather.Toiletries, 'cause hygiene is important. Which Survivor contestant are you the most like? Kelley Wentworth from Survivor: Second Chance and I think she was also on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur.What's your reason for being on Survivor? I have one thing left to do in this game: win. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I survived for 38 days last time. I think I can handle one more day.
  6. Photo courtesy CBS.COM Age: 25 Hometown: Los AngelesCurrent residence: Bell, CaliforniaOccupation: Small Business OwnerHobbies: Swimming, rock climbing, anything active, karaoke, and getting into shenanigans! Pet peeves: I cannot stand when people don't carry their weight. I also hate quitters! Find a way to get something done! Don't just give up when the going gets tough. Three words to describe you: Idiosyncratic, fun-loving, and spontaneous. What is your personal claim to fame? Starting my own business from the ground up. Who or what is your inspiration in life? My mom is my greatest inspiration. She worked hard and raised three daughters all by herself. I don't know what I would do without her! If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? I would definitely need to take a small jar of Vaseline, my lips get dry!Hair ties: I cannot stand when my hair is in my face! I need it up to win challenges.Last but not least, I really want to take Scruffy. Okay context time: I have a stuffed animal that I have had for 20 years and I have never slept without him even to this day. My sister and BF insist I don't take him because what if I get him sandy or ruin him. I'm conflicted. Which Survivor contestant are you the most like? I am a hybrid of many players! I think I would play the game like Sandra, I would be the second Diaz to win! But my attitude towards people would be more like Tai. He is just so full of life and I love his outlooks on things. What's your reason for being on Survivor? I would like to be on the show because I want to see how tough it really is. I love putting myself in these kinds of situations and when watching the show, I have a sense that I can do this with ease. My second motivation would probably be the money. Not in the typical sense. I have always said that I want to be rich just so I am able to help other people. I grew up poor, and I am by no means well off now, but I am content with my life and need nothing more. I could use that money to help people, even in the smallest way. Especially my mom and people like her. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I think I have the agility and the cunningness to win. I love outdoorsy stuff and can't wait to see what the wilderness throws at me!
  7. BB Canada - Season 7

    Well, I really don't care for Adam or his remora Samantha at all. If the rest of the "Pretty Boys" are smart, they'll be getting rid of Adam.
  8. David Wright - Lesu

    Photo courtesy CBS.COM Age: 44Hometown: PhiladelphiaCurrent residence: Sherman Oaks, California Occupation: Television WriterPrevious season: Millennials vs. Gen-XHobbies: Chess, 3D printing/making puzzles, and figuring out how to live forever.Pet peeves: Sudden loud noises, people who don't use the turn signal, people who don't clean the lint trap after using the dryer, people who don't keep their dog on a leash and then act surprised when it jumps on me, people who believe in ghosts and psychics, and people who incorrectly use the word nonplussed. People. Three words to describe you: OCD, nervous, and paranoid. What's your personal claim to fame?Lasting 38 days of a 39-day Survivor game. Who or what is your inspiration in life? Mr. Spock—he's intelligent, logical, and has trouble fitting in. If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? Paintbrush.Paint.Canvas to make fake advantages, clues, and fake Idols.Which Survivor contestant are you the most like? I relate most to David Wright. That bald nerd just needs a hug. What's your reason for being on Survivor? The first time I played I got a lot of unexpected growth as a person. This is my second chance and this time I'm going to earn the title of Sole Survivor! Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I am going to win Survivor by applying all of the skills and knowledge gained from my first time playing the game in which I lasted 38 days. I'm going to play even harder to outwit, outplay, and outlast!
  9. Photo courtesy CBS.COM Age: 23 Hometown: Bronx, New YorkCurrent residence: Bronx, New YorkOccupation: WaitressHobbies: Hiking, painting/visual art, cooking.Pet peeves: Slow walkers, leaving cabinets open, my guinea pig who I named Peeve, and when customers don't read the menu and then ask dumb questions like, "are there meatballs in the meatball sauce?" Three words to describe you: Controlling, ambitious, and witty. What is your personal claim to fame? I was valedictorian of my college with a perfect 4.0 and I bring it up in conversation as much as possible. Who or what is your inspiration in life? This is going to sound nuts, but my guinea pig Scamp. She's been sick from the moment I got her. She's had two surgery stints, countless vet visits, and tons of medications, but she's still the happiest, feistiest, and most amazing little fur-ball. She has such a distinct personality and loves eating so much. I just respect that about her and strive to be that simplistically happy. If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? A notebook and pencil (this is one item) to keep track of all my thoughts and to sketch. Baby pillow: this tiny pillow I've had since I was born that I sleep with every night. A guitar: No clue how to play one, but I figure I'll have lots of time to learn. Which Survivor contestant are you the most like? I relate to Malcolm Freberg. If you read his Wiki Fandom page, he's described as "likable, strategic, and excels at challenges" and I'd like to think I am the same way. What's your reason for being on Survivor? My primary motivation is the once in a lifetime adventure! I've been watching since I was a little kid, and it's always been something I've wanted to do. Every contestant says its life-changing. Secondary: the shot at a million dollars, of course! Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I truly think I have everything it takes to outwit, outplay, and outlast. I am and always have been a hustler. I work hard to achieve my goals. I'm sociable, very smart, strong, and self-aware enough to know when to tone down the quantities that make me a threat. I'm not afraid to lie and backstab, but I'm smart enough to know without alliances and bonds, you will never win.
  10. BB Canada - Season 7

    I was wondering that too, and the only thing I can figure is that the plate is uncomfortable and he only wears it when he has to.
  11. BB Canada - Season 7

    On the live feeds this morning, it appears that BB has already started putting boxes of documents in that room, of course with no explanation. Hilarious to watch them going through them having no idea what they’re looking for.
  12. BB Canada - Season 7

    I love how much they’re freaking out about the secret room they discovered. BB Can does love to torture the HGs. It’s one of the things I live about the show.
  13. BB Canada - Season 7

    Well, that was a great premiere! I'm anxious to learn what the "Blood" veto is.
  14. Victoria Baamonde - Manu

    I believe that she was the one that sat with Julie kind of complaining about how everyone was out looking for idols and they probably should be doing that but then just sat on their asses and did nothing.
  15. Reem Daly - Manu - Voted out Week 1

    She seemed terribly, terribly hungry. I hope Keith will be safe if he winds up there.
  16. I actually am not sure what species of parrot that is, but I think it’s some kind of lory. I have to disagree that swimmin is not a challenging skill to pick up. I tried for years to learn to swim better - taking lessons and practicing for many hours. I’m still only at the level where I can save myself in the water, but I would not consider myself a strong swimmer at all. That said, I know that I would never apply to Survivor because of that.
  17. Well, I guess I take that back. He was pretty useless this episode, but his ridiculous indecision at the Extinction Island sign was ridiculous. SO disappointed that he was kicked out and then immediately given a chance to get back into the game and was all, “Oh, what to do??”
  18. BB Canada - Season 7

    It’s season 7. Here’s the HG list! https://www.bigbrothercanada.ca/houseguests/
  19. Photo courtesy CBS.COM Age: 32Hometown: Pensacola, FloridaCurrent residence: Orlando, FloridaOccupation: Divorce LawyerHobbies: Rock climbing, adventure racing, and brunch!Pet peeves: Know-it-alls, ignorance, playing the victim card, any noise coming from the mouth, the easily offended, slow walkers, and people who are homophobic. Three words to describe you: Direct, ruthless, and athletic. What is your personal claim to fame? Having my mom tell me she was proud of who I became before she died. We were polar opposites and did not get along, but in the end, she was proud of me.Who or what is your inspiration in life? My brother Shane. We went into the foster care system after being taken away from our biological mother. Shane wouldn't leave my side and always protected me and made me feel normal. He made sure I wouldn't grow up with negative memories or scars and allowed me to become the person I am today. If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? Gum: I have an addiction and I don't just chew, I chomp!Sunglasses: I cannot hide my facial reactions and roll my eyes constantly. Earplugs: I'm an extroverted introvert so the fact that I am surrounded by people and can't get away is going to drive me crazy.Which Survivor contestant are you the most like? Tyson for being a manipulative, mischievous prankster, Ciera for her attitude and foot in the mouth moments, and Michaela for her die-hard competitiveness. What's your reason for being on Survivor? I love the show and have been obsessed with it since the beginning. I want to be in the depths of the conversations, manipulations, and absolute psychological warfare. Also, the competitions look like so much fun. Oh no, I have to stand in the middle of the blue ocean and prove I'm a badass—GAME ON! Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I will bring my analytical skills. I'm good at going into a situation knowing what I want, reading others, and finding out what drives them, manipulating the situation to make them think my goal is theirs. I have the ability to take the personal side out and bring forth the cutthroat side.
  20. BB Canada - Season 7

    Wow, it looks amazing. I wonder what the theme is - the rocket engine bells over the table made me think space, but the rest doesn’t really. Still, it looks great.
  21. Joe Anglim - Kama

    Photo courtesy CBS.COM Age: 29Hometown: Chandler, ArizonaCurrent residence: Ogden, UtahOccupation: Multimedia ArtistPrevious season: Worlds Apart, Second ChanceHobbies: Filmmaking/videography, art and equine therapy, design, creative art, nature therapies, yoga, and hiking.Pet peeves: I find it incredibly displeasing when I see someone lose their patience and become aggressive, disrespectful, and rude. Three words to describe you: Adaptable, adventurous, and able. What's your personal claim to fame? It was a lifelong dream to play Survivor and to get my dad out for the family visit in Survivor: Second Chances. I was also honored to be a part of and win The Price is Right's Survivor special with my super fan friend Latrina. Who or what is your inspiration in life?Sierra Dawn Thomas. I've never been more inspired by such a hard-working, beautiful, and caring woman. She inspires me to be the best version of myself every single day. If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? Picture of my family and girlfriend.Brushes, paint and a canvas to make some art.Go-Pro. Which Survivor contestant are you the most like? Kim Spradlin. Kind and poised, but a gamer and player. What's your reason for being on Survivor? To win and have Jeff say the magic words of "Sole Survivor." Also, to prove that anything is possible and to never quit or give up on a dream. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? Hopefully, I've gained enough experience from my last two failed attempts and I can take all that I learned and apply it. I know I can get to the end if I'm adaptable enough. I just have to constantly adjust and rely on both my past knowledge of how to interact and motivate others to produce good, positive results. Just going to play "smarter, not harder."
  22. Photo courtesy CBS.COM Age: 46Hometown: BaltimoreCurrent Residence: New York CityOccupation: ToymakerHobbies: Psychological thrillers, hot yoga classes, escape rooms, and spending way too much time online researching gluten-free recipes that I never end up making. Pet peeves: Hoarders, people who invade my personal space, and anything that's floral scented. Three words to describe you: Underestimated, determined, and maybe a little neurotic. Okay, I'm definitely neurotic. What is your personal claim to fame? Raising my two kids who impress me every day with their intelligence, strength, humor, and resilience. I hope I can make them as proud of me as I am of them. Who or what is your inspiration in life? My husband. He is incredibly smart, caring, and selfless. He has always been there for me and supports me in everything I do. Every time I watch him with our children, it reminds me that he is the best example of what a parent should be and inspires me to be a better parent myself. If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? My iPhone for its playlist of my favorite songs to keep me motivated when things get tough.A picture of my husband, kids, and two Bernese mountain dogs to remember that they are back home rooting for me.Milk chocolate. That's self-explanatory. Which Survivor contestant are you the most like? A combo of Stephanie for her tenacity, Cirie for her humor and fun-spirit, and Dawn for her propensity to have some emotional moments. What's your reason for being on Survivor? The challenge. I have wanted to play this insane game since I saw the very first episode. Something about pushing myself to the absolute physical and mental limit possible has always appealed to me. It's about proving to myself and to those that know me that I can actually do this!. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? There is no doubt that I will be out of my comfort zone every step of the way, but when I set out to do something I become laser focused and I never give up. While I may not be the strongest physical player out there, I am smart, social, and will play the game with both my brain and my heart. I have waited 18 years to do this and nothing is going to stop me from winning. No other outcome is even an option!
  23. Photo courtesy CBS.COM Age: 25Hometown: Myrtle Beach, South CarolinaCurrent residence: Greenville, South CarolinaOccupation: District Sales ManagerHobbies: Surfing, sailing, camping, anything outdoors!Pet peeves: Laziness, political Facebook posts, people who are all talk and no walk. Three words to describe you: Personable, hustler, and intuitive. What is your personal claim to fame? My professional career. I went from being a barista to managing the #1 sales team in my solar company within a year.Who or what is your inspiration in life? The people who have taught me to get back up when I'm knocked down, to fight for the things that matter in life, and to never let my goals get away from me, no matter how big or small. If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? A surfboard because Fiji has amazing waves!A skillet because literally everything tastes better on a skillet.Scuba gear equipped with a spear gun because I love diving and spearfishing.Which Survivor contestant are you the most like? Malcolm because of his charm, Rob because he is a leader but also manipulative, Spencer because of how well he understands strategy, and Ozzy because of his skills in the water. What's your reason for being on Survivor? My primary motivation is to say that I accomplished the goal that I was set out to do—win! Even if the grand prize was $1,000, if I say I am going to do something, then I am everything in my control to achieve it. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I can make fire, fish, build shelter, and I will most likely be cooking a lot of meals (I'm big into cooking). Also, I'd work hard and won't lay around camp. I'm a team player in terms of getting a group to work together, I am extremely competitive, and I will do whatever it takes to help my team win!
  24. Reem Daly - Manu - Voted out Week 1

    And Sand fleas!!
  25. Yeah, she’s still kind of annoying.
