Survivor is back for its 31st season. This time 20 returning castaways have been voted in by fans to compete in Koh Rong, Cambodia, an island in the South China Sea. It’s been years since Survivor fans have seen castaways like Terry Deitz (Survivor: Panama) and Andrew Savage (Survivor: Pearl Islands). Both men are in their 50s now, and are fit, but can they win the $1 million prize? Deitz will be in the Bayon Tribe. Savage in the Ta Keo Tribe. (The names are taken from famous Cambodian temples.)
Entertainment Weekly caught up with Savage in Cambodia. He’s as handsome as ever but as a 51-year-old he admits to becoming a determined yet “grumpy, stubborn curmudgeon.” In the video he appears happy for the Second Chance, and looks more and more like another famous castaway — The Professor on Gilligan’s Island portrayed by the late great Russell Johnson. Survivor Cambodia – Second Chance airs Wednesdays at 8pm on CBS.
