Survivor 2013: Does Brad Culpepper Swap With Wife Monica?

Survivor 2013 Week 5 Redemption Island

In this week’s preview for Survivor 2013 (watch the video below) we see Galang tribe member Monica asking her husband, Brad Culpepper, if she can take his spot in Redemption Island. But does Brad swap places with Monica on Redemption Island?

The last time this “did they swap?” was played up by CBS we discovered the promo photos confirming that no, Tyson did not swap with Rachel. This time CBS is being more careful by only showing Candice and John performing in this week’s Redemption Island.

According to some spoilers we’ve read (stop now if you don’t want to read any potential Survivor spoilers) Monica ends up being part of the season’s final three. If true, it makes me doubt her swapping spots with Brad. Of course it’d still be possible for both to happen as she could switch and then win her way back, but I don’t know if I’d expect that to happen.

When Survivor Blood vs Water airs on Wednesday I anticipate we’ll see Monica offer the switch to Brad, but he’ll decline. In fact, in one of the promo pics released Brad seems to be waving to Monica either as a “hello” or a “no” in response to the exchange.

What do you think will happen? Would Brad let Monica swap or will he stand his ground and compete against Candice and John in Redemption Island on Survivor 2013?
