Survivor: Hot Girl With a Grudge: Season 28 Premier "Survivor: Cagayan — Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty" cast is introduced
Calling SURVIVOR “television’s greatest social experiment of all time,” the host Jeff Probst reveals that this season is going in a new direction. There are eighteen contestants, forming three groups, who represent the qualities they rely on in their daily lives – beauty, brains, or brawn. Arriving by helicopter to the island first is the Brains tribe. Each member has an individual IQ of 130 or above. They use their intellect to accomplish their goals. Spencer Bledsoe, a 21-year-old college student from Chicago, IL, is an Economics major at the University of Chicago. Spencer tied for first place in the World Open chess tournament and admits, “I certainly don’t look diabolical or a genius, both of which I am.” David Samson is also on the Brains tribe. He is 45 years old and the President of the Miami Marlins, a major league baseball team, and lives in Plantation, FL. David says, “In baseball, there is only one winner at the end. SURVIVOR is the same. So, I’ve been playing this game for a long time.” Next is Kassandra “Kass” McQuillen, a 41-year-old undefeated attorney from Tehachapi, CA. She feels others will assume that she will be just the mom of the tribe, but boasts, “I am more cunning and ruthless than 95% of the population.” Heading to the island in a speedboat is the Beauty tribe.
