The castaways of Survivor 40 are about to hit the island for the very first time, and one of them is a veteran survivor who says he’s got plenty to say about what’s ahead.
We’ve got some of the most intense, passionate, smart, fearless people that I’ve ever met in my life.
The fact that they have no clue about what the future holds is unbelievable.
So it’s really inspiring to see how the survivors are working through the challenges and all the things that come with that.
