The next season of Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water will once again include pairs doing that Survivor shtick for the million dollars. And it's certainly looking to be controversial. EW has the intel on six of the contestants and, not only does it include controversial homophobic former baseball player John Rocker, it will pit cutie actor couple Reed Kelly and Josh Canfield against him. What sorta name calling with the likes-to-be-intimidating Rocker come up to help the ratings? Will he and his spray-tan girlfriend Julie McGee be the villains?
As EW reveals:
Kelly has appeared on stage in the ensembles of Wicked and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, where he also played “Debut Super-Man” and villain Swiss Miss. (He also appeared as a model on the cover of a 2012 issue of Time magazine.) Kelly compares his partner to one of the most famous people to ever play Survivor: Facts of Life star Lisa Whelchel. 'She was so great with the way she played,' says Kelly. 'And the way she carried herself in the game was from such an honest place and a place of faith, which is very Josh, so I think that would be a great person to compare him to.' ”
Survivor: San Juan del Sur will kick-off on CBS with a special 90-minute premiere at 8 p.m. on Sept. 24
