TV News – Survivor: Heroes vs Villians Cast Announced!

OMG. OMG. OMG! If you were listening closely, you’d have heard my fangirl squeals all the way from Kansas last night when I read about the 20 people chosen for Survivor: Heroes vs Villians. Basically all the ones that I wanted to see (I’d have loved to see a few like Ozzy and stuff, but for the most part…) are going to be on the show this next season, and I couldn’t be happier!

For more info, including video interviews of each of the castaways and host, Jeff Probst, check out Zap2It.

For more on the new cast, jump with me.

Castaways competing on SURVIVOR: HEROES VS. VILLAINS (in alphabetical order):

HEROES:

RUPERT BONEHAM
Age: 45
Hometown: Indianapolis, Ind.
Current Residence: Indianapolis, Ind.
Previous Finishes: Pearl Islands, 8th Out; All-Stars, 15th Out, 6th Jury Member
Jenny’s thoughts: Rupert was a geniunely nice guy. He was hard working, fun and just simply a very nice guy. I’m thrilled to see him back and hope he lasts longer than he did on the All-Stars season!

JAMES CLEMENT
Age: 32
Hometown: Lafayette, La.
Current Residence: Malibu, Calif./Lafayette, La.
Previous Finishes: China, 10th Out; Micronesia, Injured, Jury Member
Jenny’s thoughts: Face is ok, body is SMOKIN, but he played like he was dumber than a bag of rocks. I don’t know if he’s really that stupid or if he just came across that way when he played… I mean, he went out in China with TWO hidden immunity idols in his pocket. UGH! He’s a very nice guy, though, and I’d like to see him play a bit smarter so he lasts longer. He’s extremely nice eye-candy, if nothing else. 😉

COLBY DONALDSON
Age: 35
Hometown: Christoval, Texas
Current Residence: Los Angeles, Calif.
Previous Finishes: Australia, Runner-Up; All-Stars, 5th Out
Jenny’s thoughts: Colby was my top pick for the Heroes portion of the new cast. I have loved him since Australia, although one part of me thought he was a freakin moron for taking Tina with him to the end, when she had done NOTHING except ride his coattails. It was that decision that cost him the $1M. Jeff said in his interview that I listened to that Colby is in better shape than he was for even Australia, and that he is going to be playing to win, so I sincerely hope he comes back and does better than he did in All-Stars!

CIRIE FIELDS
Age: 39
Hometown: Jersey City, N.J.
Current Residence: Norwalk, Conn.
Previous Finishes: Panama, 12th Out; Micronesia, 15th Out
Jenny’s thoughts: Nice woman, but I really couldn’t care less whether she was here or not. Just please, no floppy boobs in the bra this time!

AMANDA KIMMEL
Age: 24
Hometown: Kalispell, Mont.
Current Residence: Los Angeles, Calif
Previous Finishes: China, 2nd Runner Up; Micronesia, Runner Up
Jenny’s thoughts: Eh. I guess I don’t remember her well enough to care one way or the other. Which, being runner up both times she was on says a lot to me. LOL

JESSICA “Sugar” KIPER
Age: 29
Hometown: Baton Rouge, La.
Current Residence: Los Angeles, Calif.
Previous Finishes: Gabon, 2nd Runner Up
Jenny’s thoughts: Seriously? *roll eyes* I didn’t think she was too exciting to watch, but whatever. Don’t particularly care one way or the other, I suppose. lol

STEPHENIE LAGROSSA
Age: 29
Hometown: Braircliff, Glenolden, Pa.
Current Residence: Philadelphia, Pa.
Previous Finishes: Palau, 10th Out; Guatemala: Runner Up
Jenny’s thoughts: Again, I don’t particularly remember her… Oh well!

JAMES “JT” THOMAS JR.
Age: 25
Hometown: Samson, Ala.
Current Residence: Mobile, Ala.
Previous Finishes: Tocantins, Winner
Jenny’s thoughts: OMG! I LOVE JT! I was SO excited to see him back! He is a very nice guy but knows how to play the game, as evidenced by the win in the Tocantins. He’ll be vying for my rooting for the top spot with Colby, that’s for sure.

TOM WESTMAN
Age: 45
Hometown: New York, N.Y.
Current Residence: New York, N.Y.
Previous Finishes: Palau, Winner
Jenny’s thoughts: I remember Tom being a nice guy and winning. But I don’t remember much else about him. Sad, isn’t it? 🙁

CANDICE WOODCOCK
Age: 27
Hometown: Fayetteville, N.C.
Current Residence: Washington, D.C.
Previous Finishes: Cook Islands, 13th Out
Jenny’s thoughts: I don’t remember a thing about her… 🙁

VILLAINS:

TYSON APOSTOL
Age: 30
Hometown: Lindon, Utah
Current Residence: Heber City, Utah
Previous Finishes: Tocantins, 8th Out
Jenny’s thoughts: The only thing to make it more awesome that Tyson is back? That his butt buddy (I have no idea, that’s just what we nicknamed them in the Tocantins!) Coach is back as well. Fantastic. He’s a sly, underhanded villian. He’ll sneak up on you and be a jackass before you know you’ve been smacked down.

RANDY BAILEY
Age: 50
Hometown: Austin, Texas
Current Residence: Austin, Texas
Previous Finishes: Gabon, 11th Out
Jenny’s thoughts: I don’t remember much about Randy, aside from him being completely unapologetic about how he really is: mean, doesn’t have any friends, doesn’t believe in love. So it’ll be interesting to see how he goes up against the likes of Russell (Woohoo!).

DANIELLE DILORENZO
Age: 26
Hometown: Boston, Mass.
Current Residence: Los Angeles, Calif.
Previous Finishes: Panama, Runner Up
Jenny’s thoughts: Runner up, but… I don’t remember her.

RUSSELL HANTZ
Age: 37
Hometown: Dayton, Texas
Current Residence: Dayton, Texas
Previous Finishes: Samoa, Runner-Up
Jenny’s thoughts: If they hadn’t convinced Russell to come back for this season, something would have been wrong. He is the epitome of the Survivor Villian. I started off the Samoa season absolutely despising him, but by the end, I admired the hell out of the man. I truly hope he is different in real life, like he said during the reunion show last season, cause he is an EVIL GENIUS in the game of Survivor.

JERRI MANTHEY
Age: 38
Hometown: Los Angeles, Calif.
Current Residence: Los Angeles, Calif.
Previous Finishes: Australia, 8th Out; All-Stars, 7th Out
Jenny’s thoughts: I hated her for her interactions with Colby during Australia, wasn’t too fond of her on principle during All-Stars… So it’ll be interesting to see how I like her this go-round.

ROBERT MARIANO
Age: 33
Hometown: Boston, Mass.
Current Residence: Pensacola, Fla.
Previous Finishes: Marquesas, 7th Out; All-Stars: Runner-Up
Jenny’s thoughts: If there was anyone I was itching to see besides Colby and Russell, Boston Rob would have been it. I loved him both times he was on, and fell in love with him and Amber during All-Stars. I was SO thrilled to learn that not only are they still married, but they have a baby now! How exciting!

PARVATI SHALLOW
Age: 27
Hometown: Atlanta, Ga.
Current Residence: Los Angeles, Calif.
Previous Finishes: Cook Islands, 15th Out; Micronesia: Winner
Jenny’s thoughts: I didn’t really like her either season she was on, especially for the way she treated my poor little Ozzy. Eh.

SANDRA DIAZ-TWINE
Age: 34
Hometown: Stamford, Conn.
Current Residence: Fayetteville, N.C. Previous Finish: Pearl Islands, Winner
Jenny’s thoughts: I don’t remember her. 🙁

BENJAMIN “Coach” WADE
Age: 38
Hometown: Susanville, Calif.
Current Residence: Susanville, Calif.
Previous Finishes: Tocantins, 11th Out
Jenny’s thoughts: I really didn’t like Coach. He was arrogant and a jerk. But like Jeff said in the interview I saw, he was extremely funny, even though he wasn’t trying to be! It’ll be interesting to see how he gels with the other villians and how he and Tyson go together again this season.

COURTNEY YATES
Age: 28
Hometown: Boston, Mass.
Current Residence: New York, N.Y
Previous Finishes: China, Runner-Up
Jenny’s thoughts: I don’t remember her, either. LOL
