Sean Edwards, who describes himself as a connection-seeker, ambitiously minded, and magnetic energy, is a contestant on the forty-fifth season of Survivor that premiered on 27 September 2023.
Having been watching Survivor since the very beginning, Sean always wanted to play, but for so many years never had the confidence to even put himself out there. So, on the show, he said he is going to reclaim a lot of lost time and missed opportunities. So did he do that? Let’s get to know about this and more in this writing called ‘Sean Edwards Bio’.
Sean Edwards On Survivor 45
Sean Edwards decided to be a part of Survivor 45 after he finally came to terms with himself with a revived pride and confidence. “I am ready to play and win!”, he thought.
So, what was the preparation like? A lot of it actually. Sean said though it may not look like he went to the gym to physically prepare for Survivor which involved a lot of endurance training. He said he was on stair stepper for hours, just building that cardiovascular and respiratory endurance. In addition to this, Sean also did a lot of mind puzzles, the 3D ones.
Looking back on all the years and seasons of Survivor history, Sean believes he identifies the most with Owen Knight.
Sean Edwards Partner
First of all, you should understand that Sean is openly gay. Back in 2016, after having been through a couple of years of identity crisis, mental battle, and whatnot he thought to put an end to all of this by telling his parents he was going to start dating men. They took it well maybe.
So, fast forward to 2023, Sean has been married to Matt Doane (Tshaj Lug Vwj), a study coordinator at the University of Utah. He can be found on IG @matt.doane.
These two got engaged at a beautiful sight in Bonneville Salt Flats back in March 2018 and got married later on August 1st of that year. At their wedding, Sean talked about having had a soda/mocktail bar among other things.
Sean also said in his recent interview that he met his now-husband in 2016 and that he was very supportive of him coming to Survivor45. Sean also opened up that his husband is a great cook and it’s his favorite thing to eat his food while spending quality time with him and watching Survivor seasons.

Sean’s mother is Jeanie Hong Edwards (on IG @jeaniehong1). She hails all the way from Blackfoot, Idaho. Also, she turned 65 years old in November 2022.
Sean is really fond of the matriarch one can tell. On Mother’s Day, the last time Sean had taken to his social media to shout out that his “beautiful” mother has taught him to truly enjoy and embrace life. He also thanked her for empowering him to take advantage of every opportunity, learn how to love himself and others, be resilient in adversity, be spiritually minded, and laugh until his cheeks hurt.
Further, it is understood that this person, Sheldon Clay Edwards of Lawrenceville, New Jersey, is most likely Sean’s father. Sean was born in January 18958. So, he turned 65 years old in 2023.

Sean seems to have an equally loving bond with his siblings. During his talk with parade.com lately, he said his older sister Elaine, who has autism, (and his mom) is his biggest inspiration. He then described that Elaine is nonverbal, aggressive, and self-injurious, and cannot live independently and yet gets through everyday challenges with her smiles and laughs. Also, he gushed that one day he hopes to have an ounce of her bravery.
