Survivor Blood vs Water Possible Casting Spoilers

    This is from


    Survivor has cast a former Big Brother winner who will appear on Survivor Blood vs. Water, the new season that features returning cast members playing with loved ones. While Amazing Race and Big Brother have long shared cast members, including with Survivor, it has not yet drawn a cast member from CBS’ other shows.

    Hayden Moss, who won season 12, is dating Kat Edorsson, who appeared on Survivor One World. Another notable pairing: Monica Culpepper partner will compete with her husband, Brad Culpepper, a former NFL player.

    The returning cast members I’ve been able to confirm, via someone with knowledge of the cast, are as follows, though it’s possible one or more of these are either alternates (or decoys?) The cast is sequestered in L.A. and are leaving for the Philippines soon, and include the following returnees paired with someone they know:

    Tyson Apostol, Tocantins, Heroes vs. Villains
    Aras Baskauskas, Panama
    Rupert Boneham, Pearl Islands, All-Stars, Heroes vs. Villains
    Monica Culpepper, One World
    Colton Cumbie, One World
    Kat Edorsson, One World
    Laura Morett, Samoa
    Gervase Peterson, Borneo
    RC Saint-Amour, Philippines
    Tina Wesson, Australia, All-Stars

    While there are some bright spots—the return of Gervase is especially interesting—this cast seems like a phenomenal joke: Two winners, three if you count Hayden? One person, Rupert, playing for a fourth time—fourth! Three of the cast from Survivor One World, which Jeff Probst called “a letdown”?

    Hopefully the twist can save it: I am intrigued about how Amazing Race-izing the show will affect the game, but this all seems so desperate.

    If Colton is really on it I may not watch. He's a horrible person. :(

    Not happy about Colton or Rupert. But I'll be very happy to watch Monica and RC some more. And having Gervase back will be great.

    And I don't get the "Amazing Race-izing" comment. From everything I've heard, they're not in teams of two. It's a Fans vs. Favorites twist, with all the fans being family of the favorites.

    Why is it so hard for them to find new players?

    +100 for Rupert (big crybaby) and Gervase (can't believe it has taken this long to have him back).

    Wonder how they are going to work out the voting. Are they 'paired' with their friend or loved one in that they are truly a pair where if one gets voted out they both go?

    Also happy that Gervase is back. I remember back in the original season when it was thought he was the winner because his pic on the CBS website was the only one that didn't have an alternate pic with a red X through it. So when he was voted out I was floored.

    Hate that Colton is back. He was a bully and really tainted the season, IMO.

    If they are actually teams of 2 that compete together and are voted off together I will hate this. I think I'll hate it anyway. Amazing Race family edition was putrid and this sounds equally so. I thought Redemption Island was a bad idea but I'd rather have that than this. Ok ok, I'll keep an open mind until we find out for sure...

    I'm definitely losing interested in Survivor's "specialty" casting. :(

    My guess is that the returnees will be in one tribe and the family members will be in another.

    Could make for some interesting alliances before the merger.

    On paper, I'm not looking forward to this.

    One positive aspect of this is that you no longer have the typical whichever tribe has the greater numbers going into the merge has an advantage situation. Alliances pre merge and alliances post merge could be very different. This of course assumes the family members will be on different tribes to start. The potential is there for this to be an interesting twist but they could easily screw it up as well.

    I liked Tyson, but some of the others I don't even remember. And some of the others I actively hate.

    Not a fan of this returning nobodies thing... most of the people that returned this season I couldn't have cared less about. If they keep bringing back entire casts of returning players, pretty soon they aren't going to have any new people to return.

    I think there should be a hard limit on the number of times someone can play the game. Much as I like BR and enjoyed his winning season, 4 times is too many. Sorry Rupert.

    Rupert is one of the people I actively hate... I can't stand his trippy dippy persona.

    That would certainly be better than having "teams" of 2.

    Big Brother did the pairs thing a few different times and it was interesting enough. I think this will provide an interesting enough twist without changing the game entirely.

    I'd be willing to bet he will play a different game.
