Hayden Moss: Survivor Rumor


According to information on the mighty internet, the next season of Survivor will be in Cagayan in The Philippines. I don’t know why people are complaining that it’s in The Philippines “again” as if we all go there all the time like it’s no big deal. Clearly CBS has some sort of deal with the entire country in some conspiracy-driven plot to rule the world. Moving on…


This next and 27th season of Survivor will be some sort of “blood versus water” family / loved one theme. Essentially, one past contestant of the show returns with their plus-one being a spouse or other family member. Now enter Hayden Moss, winner of Big Brother 12…rumored to be cast for the season, but neither a spouse nor a family member of any former Survivor contestant. Except he has been dating Kat Edorrson from Survivor: One World, and they’ve been running the reality circuit including the Brenchel Wedding.


So unless Hayden plans to marry Kat on the premiere of the show, it seems the term “family” is a loose one over at CBS or these two are part of the “water” twist? I don’t know. Either way, I’m psyched to see what Hayden brings to Survivor and what Survivor takes from him. For example:

1. Hayden’s that All State athletic trophy-winning all-around winner-in-life on paper and on his Wikipedia page. This will get him a Survivor Wiki page in addition to his current Big Brother Wiki page.

2. Hayden’s his Big Brother 12  win came as a result of winning lots of competitions (including 4 HOHs) and a strong social game. Hooking up heavily in a showmance with one Kristen Bitting helped too.


We’ll get to see if he gravitates towards anyone resembling The Meow Meow, and if he gets to spoon and grope for warmth with Kat at night.

3. Hayden was originally supposed to be cast for Survivor anyway, Nicaragua, so it looks like both he and the producers get what they want in the end.

4. Hayden was a “Have-Not” only once the season he won Big Brother, so it’ll be great to see how he handles being a virtual “Have-Not” for days on end. I’m also interested in what he’ll look like as he begins to lose weight, and whether his lips will get even thinner or somehow look fuller because of the sudden weight-drop. I’m horrible.

Now if all that I’ve alleged turns out to be false, then none of this matters. But if Hayden was really cast on this next season of Survivor, then I will root for him in the name of Big Brother solidarity and such…

    I think in the blood vs water twist one tribe is a previous cast member plus a BLOOD relative and on the other side it is a previous cast member plus a friend/bf/gf hence WATER

      Are there enough of each? Who knows. Everything’s a rumor hahaha! But you’re probably right!

      Yes. There’s lots out there but all I really care about is Hayden hahhaha! And not because I’m a fan, but just because it’s someone from Big Brother. I’m pretty excited!

  • There are so many people on the planet that could would and wants to be on reality show why do they have to cast the same people over and over. I want them to have new people.. its more fun in a fantasy show than the retreads all the time.

      I think those days are behind us…we had Survivor: One World a brand-new cast and that was two seasons ago. Perhaps they’ll do brand-new faces next season? :)

      Richard you dirty old man. ( I can say that because I’m dirtier and older. ) Facial hair was a good attempt at trying to play the innocent card. I freely admit that I’ll be watching to see if anything at all grows. :-p~

  • Aww, nice that you’ll stay loyal to your ‘Big Bros’!! Haha

    I was never really a fan of Hayden though. I think just because of the Kristen association more than anything.

    So out of loyalty to YOU, I shall cheer him on if he appears this season 😉 haha

      Hayden’s been mildly digestible unlike some other BB alum…it’ll be interesting to see him compete on Survivor don’t you think?

      Oh, I was never a fan of his either. He bores me. But he’s a nice guy.

    Ugh. I loved your article…that’s not my ugh. Ugh…so many peeps apply and they bring people back..now cross over. I miss the days of strangers and the even playing field. I know I need to build a bridge..but my pacifier tastes good.

    I’d never pass up a chance to watch Shirtless Hayden but I need to be careful. @stephaniefromthewc would cut me wide and deep if I mess with her man… and you know I wood… err… would. I agree with Bonn310 about casting new people. There seems to be a secret society now and while many people would love to be on a reality show, almost any reality show, the ceiling of that glass house, along with all the windows and doors are impenetrable.

    But I may watch the coming season just for the Hayden Flesh Factor. I took a Survivor break several seasons ago after Boston Rob made one too many seasons. One season of him was one more than I needed.

      Why is everyone so hot over Hayden?!

      I see your point about the impenetrability factor…

      I’ll definitely watch anyway, but if Hayden does turn out to be on this next Survivor season then all the better. Something new.

  • OMG. You are awful. I love those thin lips!! And I think I am the only one who really likes Hayden!!! Not to worry – I’ve been chastised by the best of ’em. I can take it. And ok, I am mildly interested in tracking his face/lip ratio. Slinking away now…

  • It appear that Elissa on BB15 slipped and said that Hayden makes it to the Final 4 on Survivor. August 27 @ 11:22am BBT if you have the flashbacks.

  • I’m enjoying Hayden on Survivor as well as the rest of the cast members…….. Huge kudos’ to Hayden for this was a big step………
