Brandon Donlon On Survivor 45
Survivor 45 is back for another installment with 18 new competitors and one of them is Brandon Donlon. He will be competing against his fellow castaways to secure the grand prize of $1 million.
Students, lawyers, a nurse, a bartender, and school administrators are just a handful of the diverse mix of competitors. Of course, veteran presenter Jeff Probst is back at the helm to push the 18 contestants’ physical and mental limitations in the intense tribal councils and games. Additionally, each episode will be 90 minutes long rather than an hour this season, offering viewers a deeper look into the players’ backstories as they’re stuck on the breathtaking islands of Fiji, so fans can anticipate more gameplay time.
Ahead of the premiere, Parade interviewed him regarding his preparations and his love for the show among other topics. Brandon watched the show first time to impress his teacher and he was in awe. He has made several attempts to be on the show since then and was finally eligible for Survivor 45.
In September 2021, Brandon got the call but unfortunately didn’t make it in 44. But, the call in August 2022 changed it all for him, and his dream to come on the show became a reality. He told them, “I will die, or I will do this process every year. Whatever comes first. You pick.”
Sharing his winner and non-winner that he could relate to, Brandon picked Mike White. Regarding the preparations, he shared that he has two gum memberships and was swimming a lot. He also credited his sister who got her a fire pit for Christmas where “I’ve had my flint in there every day, whittling away. I’ve been doing it in my driveway, which makes me look like I live like an insane person. But that’s been my prep.”
And, he watched a lot of content by SurvivorGeek on YouTube.
Brandon doesn’t know how people will perceive him. But he believes that his glass may pass the vibe that he is a nerd. He added, “Me being on the plane holding onto the seat the whole time, I think I may be serving anxious energy out here. But I’m so curious because everybody’s taking notes.”
As for building an alliance, Brandon is going to do it the same way as they did in the movie Breakfast Club, “getting the people on my team that are not normally associated with each other in terms of the game.”
