Survivor 45, as it premiered on 27 September 2023, introduced to viewers a contestant from British Columbia, marking a first for the show. It is Kaleb Gebrewold we speak of. A huge fan of the show, Kaleb decided to put in his tape for the show mostly to win the $1-million USD prize and also the titled “Sole Survivor”. Also, having never been qualified for anything he did before, he felt like he was perfectly qualified for Survivor. Keep reading and we shall tell you about his journey on the show and about his life in general.
Kaleb Gebrewold On Survivor 45
In a promotional video of Survivor 45, Kaleb Gebrewwold is described as a software salesman. He himself also gushed about being a “Black Huckleberry Finn” and added that he would love to give off “Golden Retriever energy.” “Like “he loves games, he loves people—energetic!” And what they don’t realize is this dog was raised by wolves,” he said.
Kaleb, unlike other cast members, has not been watching Survivor since he was a 2-year-old. For him, starting the show was an intentional thing. He listed out all of the best villain seasons of all time and just went at them in order. So, it was like watching seasons in the order 1, 6, 7, 8, 13, 16, 19, 20, before he got hooked.
Speaking of ‘how he prepared for the show’, he quit weightlifting five months prior and jumped into CrossFit and made sure he was not putting on muscle and getting cut, and eating a lot of carbs. He also did some yoga, rewatched a bunch of seasons, and listened to a bunch of winner interviews just to get in the mind of a winner.
When talking to parade.com, Kaleb also spilled about being identified with Tyson, a winner, and Jeremy, both winner and loser. He said he empathized the most with these alumni of Survivor.
Before starting to navigate this social game rife with mental and physical challenges, Kaleb was expecting to form alliances with someone with good control over their emotions and also somebody who can get along with a lot of other people and drive information. It is not yet understood if he was successful that way.
