Drew Basile On Survivor 45
Before Survivor 45 premiered with a 90-minute premiere on CBS on 27 September 2023, Drew Basile sat with parade.com for an interview to discuss all things Survivor. He explained that this experience is a “pivot” for him between stages of life and a lot of other things.
When he was asked who he identifies with the most from the previous seasons, he said maybe a guy like Jonathan Penner or maybe “even” the “hallowed, the great” Rob Cesternino.
Describing himself as a fast talker, with a bit of wit, and very authentic, Drew said it was his experience of working at a call center in Philly during COVID times that has prepared him most for the game. He also opened up that in an alliance partner, he will be one hundred percent valuing their loyalty and experience.

She gaily wrote that her boy has had a stellar year.
Manya is said to have spent the last 25 years as a fine art and antique appraiser in Washington DC, New York, Chicago, and Michigan.
