John Cochran is among the players who returned last week to give Survivor another shot. And the fan-favorite has plans to do things a little differently for Survivor Caramoan.
“I’m best known for flipping sides at the merge tribal council,” Cochran explains in the video below. “I basically turned my back on everyone…”
Cochran says after he made that big move he didn’t really do much to win the game after that. He wants to not make that same mistake this time.
“I think this time around you’re going to see a more proactive player,” he said. “I’m going to make a lot of bonds. At least taking steps to control the game instead of letting others control me.”
Find out what else Cochran has to say in the Survivor 2013 Secret Scene clip below.

When Francesca was voted off Survivor 2013 Caramoan last week, she made show history by becoming the only contestant to be voted off first twice.
And while that’s a really messed up thing to happen to Francesca, Survivor producers (Jeff Probst included) couldn’t have asked for a better premiere moment.
The gentleman in me would like to say ‘it’s a shame Francesca was voted out first once again. She deserves better. She’s a good woman,’ ” Jeff told Entertainment Weekly. “But the producer in me is compelled to dig a little deeper into my psyche and once again thank the Survivor gods for blessing us with yet another historic Survivor moment.”
Jeff also talks about what Francesca said she’d do if by some crazy stretch she was voted off first.
“I believe that within the 90 minute premiere, Francesca ponders being voted out first… again, more than a few times,” Jeff said. “I think she says she will A) eat a rock, B) drown myself. Francesca, please do not drown yourself, but it might be fun to bring a rock to the live reunion show?”
Malcolm is the most recent returnee this season on Survivor 2013 and with the taste of defeat fresh on his lips he’s ready to get back in the game and do it right this time.
He does consider it a disadvantage that he is only castaway to return from last season of Survivor while there are several other “pairs” of “Favorites” who already have relationships with the other players. Of course that didn’t work out so great for Francesca so maybe Malcolm will convert that to an advantage.
Watch the video below to find out what Malcolm thinks of his fellow “Favorites” on Survivor 2013 and which castaway pulled him aside on the first day and suggested they team up and “run this game.” One returning player that is already on Malcolm’s “watch list” is Cochran for his inability to contribute and more dangerously, his lack of loyalty in the game. It’ll be interesting to see how Malcolm’s take on each player changes through the season.
Do you think Malcolm has what it takes to go all the way this season or will he lose out again?
Francesca became the first person to be voted off Survivor 2013 Caramoan, making this the second time she was the first to have her torch snuffed.
A lot of people were surprised to see a favorite over a fan be the first to go, but that’s just how it goes.
During her exit interview the day after her elimination, Francesca said she had a lot of fun on the show and that she’s grateful to have gotten the chance to do it twice. But she doesn’t think we’ll be seeing her again. She’s also kind of bummed that she trusted people she shouldn’t have.
“It is just a game, but it’s definitely different coming out here a second time,” Francesca said. “It definitely hurt me that I was friends with some of the people I was playing with. It made me trust them when I shouldn’t have trusted them. In Survivor, nothing is for certain.”
“I was completely honored to be back,” she added. After the way the first time played out, she thought she was more prepared and certainly wouldn’t be repeating it.
“I think this is the last you’ll see of me,” she said with a laugh.
Survivor 2013 Camaroan kicked off Wednesday night as super fans came face to face with fan favorites for a battle of show experts.
The show opened on a brief intro of the newbies and a full recount of the returning players during their original seasons. Then we get into the real begging of the season. The new castaways arrive on the island and are greeted by Jeff Probst. They can immediately see there are two tribe designations.
Jeff wastes no time telling them they’ll be playing against some of their past favorite players. And they returning players show up in helicopters. One by one they’re greeted by the favorites. Jeff then tosses the buffs and sends them right into the first challenge. They’re playing for fire and 20 pounds of beans.
The favorites easily win the first challenge and Malcolm is the first player to lose his shorts. If you’re keeping track this season.
