Survivor 2015 Second Chance cast member Kelley Wentworth finished in a disappointing 14th place in her first attempt at winning a million dollars with her dad on Survivor San Juan del Sur. Even with such a lackluster placement in the game, however, this gorgeous blond, blue-eyed bombshell managed to win enough fans that she was voted in to play on Survivor Cambodia.
Kelley’s first run on Survivor came to an end largely because of a tribe switch. On her original tribe, Hunahpu, Kelley formed a strong alliance and sailed through the first week with ease. Even when one of the tribe, Drew, suddenly turned against her, she had enough support to stay safe. Then Kelley was switched over to the Coyopa tribe, and everything fell apart. Not long after, she was voted out.
For Survivor Cambodia Second Chance, Kelley Wentworth will be part of the Ta Keo (green) tribe, along with Jeff Varner, Abi-Maria Gomes, Kelly Wiglesworth, Peih-Gee Law, Shirin Oskooi, Spencer Bledsoe, Terry Deitz, Vytas Baskauskas, and Woo Hwang. (Full Survivor Second Chance cast list.)
In the real world, Kelley is a true Survivor superfan, and she campaigned like crazy to get on to Survivor 2015 Second Chance. Her campaign was easily the most hardcore and entertaining out of all the women, and she truly deserved her place on the Survivor Cambodia cast. Of course, no one should be surprised by her amazing self-promotion skills, as she does work in marketing.
Although she won’t start off on the same tribe with them. Kelley does have potential allies in the making with Jeremy and Keith, also from Survivor San Juan del Sur. She’s also a likeable person, with an engaging personality, which she can hopefully use to her advantage in making a strong, early alliance.

Kelley has the least amount of experience of any of the returning veterans this season, having spent only 13 days on her previous season. However, she brings a wealth of knowledge with her from watching Survivor as an avid fan. Kelley is also the veteran on Survivor 2015 who had the worst placement in her previous season, coming in 14th.
In her last time around on Survivor San Juan del Sur (aka Blood vs. Water II), Kelley told Entertainment Weekly she had to constantly worry about her dad while she was playing. Having to think of how her moves would affect him in the game made her “hesitant to say and do what I really wanted.”
On Survivor 2015 Second Chance, Kelley will have no such restrictions. Playing solo this season, she is ready to “bring on the fire!” According to Kelley, her take on the game will be completely a different. With a partner, she said, it’s difficult to play strategically because you’re afraid you’ll hurt their game. Now she has no one to worry about except herself!
Will Kelley soar now that she’s cut loose from dad? Watch what happens when Survivor Cambodia Second Chance debuts on September 23, 2015.
