As one of the most polarising characters on the 27th season of Blood vs Water, there is a whole lot more to Brad’s game than was ever shown. In fact there were numerous parts that were shown that were shown in the wrong order for complete dramatic effect. Outside the edit, Brad is happy to finish as ‘runner-up’ alongside Monica, and feels as though his Survivor journey isn’t yet complete. He also can pin point the exact mistake that cost him a spot in the game, and even considers a certain player ‘bland’ which may or may not surprise some people.
Brad started off fairly strong on Tadhana and soon found himself in a power position with the men of the tribe. Portrayed as the ‘leader’, he soon found people going against him, mainly on Galang and had to take the wrath of several angry people who had been voted out. Eventually it caught up with him, and in one of the most memorable tribal councils of all time, he was blindsided just before the merge after Caleb changed the vote literally at the last minute.
In our chat with Brad, he talks about why he was initially targeted for One World, how he had to talk Monica into playing Survivor twice, what strategy he had going into the game, what advice Monica gave him before he played, his initial relationships on Tadhana, why Marissa was hard to get to know and why her vote out was far more complicated than shown on screen, his behind the scenes camp life that was never shown and why it needed to be, living on redemption island with the Cody’s as well as why having his last name used by Jeff Probst was bad for his game, what tricks he played on Monica to make it seem like he had been voted out and why he thinks Monica needed more votes at the end.
