The 18 castaways will be divided into two equal tribes, the Manu Tribe and the Kama Tribe, when the game begins. Joe will be playing Survivorfor the third time and representing the Kama tribe with Aubry.
This season presents a new layer to the Survivorgame with the introduction of the island known as "Edge of Extinction," which will severely test the will of the castaways and what they are able to endure in order to win.
Until viewers can watch Joe's journey unfold on Survivor, let's learn a little bit more about this castaway right now.
- Joe first competed on Survivor's 30th season dubbed Survivor: Worlds Apart in 2015 and was the ninth person voted out of the game.
Joe, who was 25 years old at the time and worked as a jewelry designer, was eliminated on Night 24 mainly because he was a big physical threat.

Joe knew he was everyone's target so he tried to create himself a fake hidden Immunity Idol. He gave it to Mike Holloway in the hope Mike would save him for that one vote, but it did not. (Mike ended up playing the idol for himself and host Jeff Probst revealed it was fake).
- Joe's hobbies include filmmaking and videography, art and equine therapy, design, creative art, nature therapies, yoga, and hiking.
He became the twelfth castaway voted out of the game and the season's sixth jury member. Joe was ousted via a 6-1-1 vote against Abi-Maria Gomes and Tasha Fox at Tribal Council on Night 32 of the game.
Joe, once again, was too charming and likeable, and his physical ability in challenges was intimidating.
The couple became great friends after the show and slowly fell in love, and now they are living together in Utah.
Joe said he was meant to play Survivor, not to win the million, but to find the woman of his dreams.
- In addition to achieving a lifelong dream to play Survivor and getting his father to travel for the family visit, Joe's other personal claim to fame is winning The Price is Right's Survivor special with one of his super-fan friends, Latrina Reed.
