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…
