Troyzan, a 54-year-old from Miami, FL, worked as a swimsuit photographer when he first appeared on Survivor at age 50.
This all-stars season, the franchise's 34th edition, will premiere with a special two-hour episode on Wednesday, March 8 at 8PM ET/PT on CBS. The show's debut marks Survivor's milestone 500th episode.
Survivor: Game Changers, filmed in the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji in June and July 2016, will feature 20 castaways who are being billed as having made some of the biggest moves in the history of the game divided into two tribes, Mana and Nuku, that are each comprised of 10 veteran players.
He was eliminated from the eleventh episode after he failed to win the Individual Immunity Challenge and knew he was on the chopping block as a result because he was a big threat.
- Troyzan told Reality TV World after his One World stint that his tribemates were "really kooky" and were playing "in the weirdest fashion." He didn't think the castaways were strategizing or playing to win, claiming they were just playing to stick around longer.
- Troyzan, who began applying forSurvivor immediately after watching Season 1, plans to play a totally different game on Game Changers.
In addition to watching past seasons to pick up on clues he missed the first time around, he feels mentally stronger, more aware and more prepared to be a social player.
- The castaway said he's been a "jungle boy" his whole life, so making fires, fishing, building shelter, and finding adventure all comes naturally and easily for him.
- Troyzan's biggest regret was not confronting his enemies face to face on Survivor. He feels he should've called out the eventual winner, Kim Spradlin, constantly when he had chances to blow up her spot.
