Josh tells Jeff that Reed Kelly, his boyfriend and Blood Vs Water partner, was the original fan in their pairing and drew them into the plan to audition. Both were going to be recruited for this season so it worked out well that they were already a pair, explains Josh.
As for the downfall of his game, Josh credits at least part of the issue with Jeremy. Josh suggests he was quietly working in a power position when Jeremy pointed it out to the rest of the castaways and his cover was blown. Then the Tribe Shuffle arrived and sealed his fate, says Josh.
Then there was Julie quitting the game and poking another hole in his boat. Josh says Reed worked through that night to keep Julie grounded and he thought they were okay so it was a surprise the next day when she vanished from camp. He’s pretty sure Jeremy was set to be voted-out that night had they gone to Council even though Jon and Jaclyn changed their strategy a few days later.

We have arrived at the Jury phase of Survivor and that means Ponderosa has returned to gather the voted-off castaways as they await their chance to vote for the winner of Blood Vs Water.
This week we saw Josh Canfield become the first player eliminated at the Tribal Council following the tribes’ Merge which means he’s the first to arrive at the resort “camp.” It’s obviously going to be nothing like the camp he stayed at for the past few weeks, but in the dark of the night here it’s hard to get a feel for just how big or fancy the place is.
Josh reiterates what we heard in his “Day After” interview, that he did everything he could to keep a low profile and he doesn’t regret the moves he made. There’s more discussion about his relationship with Reed and how that has impacted his family life at home.
Check out the pictures below of this Survivor’s Ponderosa resort and watch the video to hear what Josh has to say about his experience and what he hopes to do next.
Now that was a fun Survivor last night. We had a solid Reward Challenge competition complete with overindulgence and a reward of its own plus plenty of uncertainty and high stakes heading in to the Tribal Council.
The Immunity Challenge might have been less than exciting in its delivery due to being a mental challenge but things couldn’t have worked out more perfectly for the showdown ending up between Jeremy and Josh, both big targets this week on Survivor.
Unfortunately for Josh not only did he end up one choice away from Immunity but the Huyopa tribe saw fit to turn on him and send him off into the jungle. Josh definitely played a great game and added a lot to the season, but playing so strong did put him in a lead position for targeting.
Now we’re down to ten castaways left and just about a month to go in the season. Things are going to speed up quickly and we’ll soon have our next Sole Survivor!
This week’s voted-off Survivor castaway is here with his “The Day After” interview and it’s always nice to see a smiling face on these when you know it’s a tough loss.
Josh Canfield narrowly lost out on a vote against Baylor in this week’s Tribal Council after Jeremy won his way to Immunity in a showdown between the two guys. Now on his way to Ponderosa we get to hear from the player who held a leading role until his elimination.
Josh doesn’t regret his gameplay and says things went well until they didn’t. He doesn’t think it’s worth nitpicking at the moves that brought him to elimination as so much of the game is a roll of the dice with varying outcomes.
As the first member of the Survivor Jury Josh will welcome the rest of the eliminated players each week and will soon return to have his say in who earned his vote for the million dollar prize. I think it’s safe to say Josh is hoping for a chance to write down Reed’s name on that one!
