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.
When you are engaged to one of the most infamous Survivor contestants of all time, you go into the game with a lot of expectations against your name. For Caleb Bankston, his time on the 27th season of Blood vs Water surprised many as to how different his personality was to Colton, but still gave us a bit of an insight into a hungry and intelligent player that was capable of a big move when the timing was right. Another player who wasn’t seen as much as they potentially should’ve been, Caleb gives an entertaining interview that once again goes to show that there is always more to a person that should’ve been shown, rather than what we got to see on our screens.
There is no doubting that Colton Cumbie is a divisive figure in the Survivor world. A memorable and underrated game on One World came to an abrupt end after he was medically evacuated, but he soon became one of the most notorious Survivor ‘villains’ after several things he said on the show didn’t go down too kindly with the audience. Fast forward 18 months later and Colton returned for a second time looking for redemption, but left the game once again with his tail between his legs causing more distaste for a man that never really gets a fair shot by the Survivor audience. And after a memorable 2012 interview in which he cleared the air about his first time, he is back for a second time on Survivor Oz to once again give his side of the story and provide another entertaining and insightful interview that should open peoples eyes up to the man that is so quickly judged but never fully given a chance.
When Tina first spoke to us back in 2012 about her time winning the Australian Outback and her first boot on All-Stars, the fire still burned brightly in her belly to return for a third time. After being an alternate for Heroes vs Villains, she finally got her shot on Blood vs Water and suffered a season of many ups and many downs. And in her first extended interview on our show since her time in the Philippines, Tina opens up about everything from whether or not there were pre-game alliances, just why she made sure Vytas was kept around after the switch and even talking about her now infamous potty mouth and wanting her daughter to have a husband.
Katie Collins suffered the unfortunate distinction of having the ‘purple Kelly’ edit on the 27th season of Blood vs Water. Starting off as a potential early boot, she survived week after week and through ups and downs to eventually be eliminated in history breaking circumstances. But as is often the case once we interview a contestant, there was clearly more to show of Katie than we ever got to see, as once again we discover another hidden gem from the Survivor world who really deserved more screen time than she ever got. And she swears, which means her mother might not want to listen to this. You’ve been warned.
