We first spoke to Rupert back in 2012 for one of our most entertaining interviews we have ever done, and despite being in the middle of a tense election campaign for Governor, Rupert teased us that we still might be keen to come back for a 4th crack at the show he loves so much. And have a crack he did, returning for the 27th season of Blood vs Water in an attempt to join Boston Rob as the only four time player to play the game as well as winning on his fourth go. However romantic that situation sounded, it wasn’t to be, as Rupert put his heart before his head in attempt to save his wife in one of the biggest sacrifices ever seen in the history of the show. It was a move that he believes cost him a win, and there is no doubt in his mind at all that the million dollars would’ve been his had he stuck around. Is there a 5th time on the cards for Rupert? Never say never.
Hayden Moss created history on the 27th season of Blood vs Water by becoming the first ever Big Brother contestant to play Survivor. Starting off slowly, Hayden soon made a heavy impact on the game and became one of the fan favourites of the season. There are moments though that Hayden still lives with, like just how close he could’ve come to winning had Ciera flipped one round earlier and that last challenge on RI. It may be one of our shortest interviews, but it is also one of our most in-depth and fascinating chats from the season so far!
Kat gave an extremely memorable interview back in 2012 to talk about her time on One World and since then has had the opportunity to return for a second time on Blood vs Water. It was a different Kat we saw this time though, as there were no shadow boxing moves or kitten crawls in a game that wasn’t shown as much as it possibly should’ve. Torn between her love of Hayden and desire to the play the game, she was never able to find herself in a strong enough position to do anything major and fought through the tears to leave the game before the merge. But as is often the case in Survivor there was more to things we didn’t get to see, including her feud with Colton and just how serious she was about fearing Hayden might leave her because she went home before the merge. You know Kat is fun to listen to, and once again she doesn’t disappoint.
Kim Mullen may not have lasted long on Palau but she certainly made an impact on several peoples lives, particularly that of a certain Jeff Wilson. Being portrayed as lazy wasn’t the easiest thing for Kim to watch, but post Survivor she has gone on to forge a successful and rewarding career that is going on to make a big difference in the world. Through relationship break ups pre-game to get on Survivor and connections with a past contestant that helped her end up in Palau, there is a lot to learn in an entertaining and insightful interview.
Jason Siska is remembered for several ‘interesting’ moves on the 16th season of Micronesia, and since his time on the show has become slightly elusive as he lives an adventurous life in the Caribbean. Through various stories through various interviews, it appears as though Jason wasn’t exactly ‘Mr.Popular’ amongst many of tribe members, and finally the time has come for him to be able to answer to all the criticism labelled against him over the years. He also has some interesting points to make about feeling remorse for voting for Parvati to win, as well as just what happened to the stick that he so famously became associated with.
If you’re a rocket scientist and you go to play Survivor, you would be expected to do well right? Well for John Fincher, he managed to keep his profession a secret on the 19th season of Samoa and it was all part of a pre-game plan that helped him make it deep into the game. Never wanting to stick to one alliance and always wanting to have his options open, John made the most of the situations as they occurred and it ultimately took a blindside to get rid of him from the season. Outside of the game John has stayed close with the ‘wine and cheese club’ in New York, and even has a potential romantic connection with a former winner that will be news to some and not a surprise to others.
We made the mistake on this show of assuming that Laura Alexander was one of the ‘three blondes’ on the 26th season of Caramoan and wasn’t memorable at all. How wrong we were. Having showed some real strategic prowess during her season, Laura is another contestant that perhaps we didn’t get to see as much of as we probably should’ve. She does have a very strong fan base however, and in her interview she proves exactly why she is so popular amongst the fans and gives a great insight into her brief time on Survivor.
