Benjamin “Coach” Wade and Ozzy Lusth have now been confirmed as the two returning Survivor contestants who are joining the other 16 on Survivor: South Pacific.
Entertainment Weekly confirmed the news that CBS will be bring back Coach and Ozzy for their third appearance on Survivor.
The two will be on different teams and host Jeff Probst says they have a lot of work ahead of them.
“What they share together is their social games suck,” Jeff told EW. “Coach? He blew it in Heroes vs. Villains. He blew it seven different ways. And Ozzy got voted out with an idol in his hand! If that doesn’t speak to how bad you are in the social part of this game. So we looked at it and said here are two guys that do have a redemption story. Yes, you’ve played. Yes, you’re popular, but you don’t know what you’re doing in this game.”
But they’ll get no added help.
“Boston Rob winning last season made it very difficult for Coach and Ozzy,” he explained. “We even talked about giving them immunity. We said maybe we should give them immunity for the first Tribal Council and let them get their feet wet, and we said that’s just not our show. You’re on your own.”
Are you glad Coach and Ozzy will be back?
