Survivor is back for its 35th season on Wednesday, September. This year, the 18 castaways are divvied up by how others perceive them. There are 3 tribes: Heroes, Healers, and Hustlers. The Heroes Tribe includes firefighter JP, lifeguard Ashley, U.S. Marine Ben, Olympic swimmer Katrina; financial analyst Chrissy; and recently retired NFL football player Alan Ball (Illini, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, Chicago Bears).
Ball says that his celebrity, fortunately, hasn’t been a big deal. “Hopefully, I can ride under the radar,” he says. But you never know what’s going to happen on Survivor. Ball says he’s had a temper at times but it mostly comes out on the field. “But what about when somebody rubs me the wrong way and I haven’t eaten in six days.” He admits, “I don’t know what that feels like.” Watch out, fellow castaways, he’s crankiest when hungry! Survivor airs Wednesdays at 8pm on CBS.
