He also might be around 35 per cent more motivated to win then his fellow contestants.
“I remember laughing with my mom at the pathetic, crying Survivors on TV. She’d always say she couldn’t wait to watch me out there, so it’ll be meaningful to close that chapter. Also, US$1 million goes even further in Canada,” Gebrewold said.
This version of the Jeff Probst-hosted show, now in its 23rd year, will feature 90-minute episodes instead of the usual hour-long fare.
