It is still weeks away from the official CBS cast
announcement for “Survivor: Palau”, but already the
names of nineteen of the twenty castaways have been released on Survivor News’ Contestant Confirmator. Like usual, Internet fans of the show have been learning more than just the identities of the newest castaways. The most recently guessed name at Survivor News’ is Gregg Carey, a 27 year-old business consultant from Ashland, Massachusetts, now living in Chicago.
Those who knew Gregg describe him as a “normal, well rounded” guy, but are not surprised that he made it onto the show. Gregg has always been athletic, playing football and baseball at Ashland High School in Massachusetts, and competing in an adventure race three years ago.
“[He is a] G-R-E-A-T guy (and cute too)...love him,” said someone who knew Gregg from his days at University of Pennsylvania, where he was a member of the Friars Senior Society, Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity, Engineering Peer Advising Council, and did volunteer work for both Habitat for Humanity and the West Philadelphia Tutoring Project.
“He definitely fits a certain mold ‘Survivor’ people look for,” said someone else who knows him, who expects him to play the game with honesty and integrity, but not overlook the big picture (the million dollars). “When the show is over, I think people will look at Gregg much like his friends do; honest, funny, and generally a good guy.”
Mr. Carey returned home from his adventure of a lifetime on December 11, and managed to re-gain all the weight he had lost in 9 days. There is no doubt that the smart and funny Carey will be loved by America, but will he be loved by his tribe? Can Gregg outwit, outplay, and outlast the nineteen other competitors on Survivor: Palau, who range from a New York firefighter to a hair stylist to a Las Vegas showgirl? Find out on February 3rd, when Survivor’s tenth edition in Palau premieres.
