Jeff Probst runs down the new season’s cast list and gives his thoughts on each of them. A few standouts with Jeff’s comments:
- Cliff – Other castaways already know who he is and a pro-sports background ($$) could be trouble
- Tony – He won’t make it to the end if he can’t relate to others better
- Woo – Likely to end up at the finish line and catch everyone off guard
- David – He lives in a world the others don’t & he’ll have to come to their playing ground
- J’Tia – Can’t get a read on her & all her different personalities
- Kass – Her plans to play the villain won’t work. She needs to think fast for a better plan
- Spencer – Not a chance that this arrogant, clueless guy can win the game
- Morgan – She’s used to using her looks, but on Survivor no one cares
Want to hear about the rest of the cast? Check out Jeff’s video below and get ready for Survivor 2014 to start on February 26th on CBS!
This is a great preview for more insight especially considering how little “real” we get in most of the castaways’ CBS interviews.
Jeff Probst talks about the Survivor 2014 cast:
Rounding out the Survivor 2014 cast trifecta is the Solana Tribe, or the “Beauty” castaways if you’d prefer. These six contestants are said to bring good looks and social charms to the Survivor Cagayan table so we’ll have to see how that works out for them.
In the mix of players we have Alexis Maxwell a 21-year old student, Brice Johnston a 27-year old socialite, Jefra Bland 22-year old pageant queen, Jeremiah Wood a 34-year old model, LJ McKanas a 34-year old horse trainer, and Morgan McLeod a 21-year old student.
We just saw in the latest Survivor promo that Morgan expects the men to do as she asks, but with a million dollars on the line I’ll be surprised to see how far that plan takes her.
The interesting aspect for this group will be to see how their plans of using looks works on each other. Maybe once we hit a tribe merge or shuffle things will be different, but unless the Brawn tribe or Brains tribe slips on their drool over Solana during a challenge I’m not sure how useful they’ll be.
Check out the Solana tribe members pictures in the gallery below (see the full Survivor Cagayan cast gallery here) and see if you can predict how they’ll do.
CBS has released a new promo for Survivor 2014 Cagayan which asks, “What does it take to win?” We get a short glimpse of one castaway from each of the three tribes: Woo of Brawn, Kass of Brains, and Morgan of Beauty.
Mixed in the commercial are a few video segments of action from the new season which starts on Wednesday, February 26, 2014. Can’t wait to get the new season going especially with an all-new cast. This will get us just one step closer.
Check out these shots from the new Survivor commercial below along with the actual segment from CBS and see which tribe you think is best represented. Woo and Kass look interesting and bring to the table what I’d expect from the Brawn and Brains tribes. Then there’s Morgan who appears ready to use what the good doctor gave her to get ahead. Yeah, I’m not so confident about the Beauty tribes chances here!
The “Brains” of the Survivor 2014 cast will be the Luzon tribe. Six members of this season’s cast will be bringing their smarts to the table in search of an advantage when the upcoming twist pits Brawn vs Brains vs Beauty. When Survivor Cagayan starts on February 26, 2014 we’ll find out just how that works out for them against the other tribes.
The members of Luzon include David Samson, 45 year old executive, Garrett Adelstein, 27 year old poker player, J’Tia Taylor, a 31 year old nuclear engineer, Kassandra “Kass” McQuillen, a 41 year old attorney, Latasha “Tasha” Fox, 37 year old accountant, and Spencer Bledsoe, a 21 year old student.
Check out the Luzon tribe members pictures in the gallery below (see the full Survivor Cagayan cast gallery here) and see if you can predict how they’ll do.
Meet the Aparri Tribe, part of Survivor Cagayan premiering on February 26, 2014 on CBS. This tribe is one of three and represents “Brawn” as part of the season’s twist pitting three attributes: brawn, brains, and beauty; against one another. Each tribe consists of six contestants for a total of eighteen castaways this season on Survivor 2014.
The members of Aparri include Cliff Robinson, a 46 year old former NBA player, Lindsey Ogle, a 29 year old hairstylist, Sarah Lacina, a 29 year old police officer, Tony Vlachos, a 39 year old police officer, Trish Hegarty, a 48 year old pilates trainer, and Yung Woo Hwang, a 29 year old martial arts instructor.
This tribe is slated to have the physical advantage in challenges as the “Brawn” element but as we all know it takes more than just strength to win at Survivor, but will it be enough to push them ahead in numbers and gain the overall advantage? The group does have a lot of youth with half of their tribe at age 29.
