‘Survivor’ is back again for its 29th season and once again, it looks like it’ll be full of backstabbing, lies, and this time, family bonds being broken. Meet the cast of ‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood Vs. Water.’
On September 24, nine pairs will compete on Survivor: San Juan del Sur — some relatives and some couples. That’s right, another Blood Vs. Water is here, but this time it’s all people who have never played Survivor. However, you may see some familiar faces from other shows, like The Amazing Race.
‘Survivor: San Juan Del Sur’ Cast
Here’s who will be competing in San Juan del Sur, a region on the southwest coast of Nicaragua.
Dale Wentworth & Kelley Wentworth: father & daughter
Dale, 55, is a farmer from Ephrata, Washington, and is 28-year-old daughter, Kelley is a marketing manager from Seattle. Dale is the oldest competitor.
Drew Christy & Alec Christy: brothers
Alec, 22, and Drew, 25, are brothers from Winter Park, Georgia. One can assume they’ll be the heartthrobs on the island with their classic long hair and abs.
Val Collins & Jeremy Collins: husband & wife
Val, 35, and Jeremy, 36, are from Foxboro, Massachusetts. He’s a former pro football player and now a firefighter, while she’s a police officer. Talk about a power couple.
John Rocker & Julie McGee: dating
John, 39, is a former pitcher for the Atlanta Braves who was under hot water in ’99 after making comments about minorities in Sports Illustrated. His girlfriend, Julie, 34, is a model and owner of a spray tan business. The two live in Georgia.
Jaclyn Schultz & John Misch: college sweethearts
Jaclyn, 25, was crowned Miss USA in 2013, while John, 26, played football at Michigan State University. (A match made in reality show heaven.)
Josh Canfield & Reed Kelly: dating
Josh, 32, and Reed, 31, are both actors from New York City. Reed works on Broadway and has starred in huge shows like Wicked and Spider-Man.
Baylor Wilson & Missy Payne: mother & daughter
Baylor, 20, is a competitive cheerleader who won the Cheerleading World Championship in 2009. Her mother Missy, 47, (not surprisingly) owns a competitive cheerleading gym. The mother and daughter reside in Dallas, and let’s just say, their bodies may be their best weapon.
Nadiya Anderson & Natalie Anderson: sisters
Nadiya and Natalie are 28-year-old twins who you probably know from The Amazing Race as the usually bickering sisters. However, they’re in extremely good shape as they work as Crossfit coaches in their downtime.
Wes Nale & Keith Nale: father & son
Keith, 53, is a fire captain from Shreveport, Louisiana while his son Wes, 23, is a firefighter. With Keith being one of the oldest competitors, we’re eager to see how he’ll work with such a young lad.
