Josh Canfield & Reed Kelly

 

joshreedbio.jpg

 

Name: Josh Canfield (32)

Tribe Designation: TBD

Relationship to Significant Castaway: Reed’s boyfriend

Current Residence: New York, N.Y.

Occupation: Singer, Actor, Writer

Personal Claim to Fame: Writing and directing my first musical in London and being the first person in my family with a Master’s degree.

Inspiration in Life: My dad. He has always treated my mother with respect and admiration and through selflessness has shown what marriage was intended to look like.

Hobbies: Writing songs, going to the gym, Settlers of Catan, movies and going to the dog park with our dog.

Pet Peeves: Idiots, loud Americans in foreign countries, most audition waiting rooms, people who will only see one side of an argument and many more.

3 Words to Describe You: Confident, energetic and compassionate.

If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) Bible – the Scripture would help in dealing with difficult circumstances 2) Piano – so that I could write songs and sing. 3) iPod – life without music is just depressing

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: There hasn’t been any one like me. I’m going to pave my own way.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: After each episode I watch from home I say “I want to do that!” The challenges, the mind games, the pushing your body to its limits, it all get me so excited!

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I can make fire, I’m very organized and detail focused which would help in numerous challenges. I’m also strong and have a lot of endurance.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I have the stamina to make it through the challenges, I have the mental grit to get past the mind games and the gutsiness to make the big moves when they need to be made. I am Survivor.

What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? I'm so excited that I get to play with Reed! This will be a memory that we will share for life. Having someone to go through this with who can help you find strength when you really need it will be invaluable in this game. I'll be stronger having Reed by my side...it also helps that he's great to look at as well.

Name: Reed Kelly (31)

Tribe Designation: TBD

Relationship to Significant Castaway: Josh’s boyfriend

Current Residence: New York, N.Y.

Occupation: Broadway Performer/Model/Aerialist

Personal Claim to Fame: Having raised over $130,000 for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS to date via my personal fundraising group Team Yellow Bucket. I also cook a really great steak and I am an experienced hugger.

Inspiration in Life: My mom. She is an incredible woman who humbly strives to care for and shape the future and the present, of thousands of students and staff daily. She manages to do this while also being an amazing and supportive mother/wife on a daily basis. How can one not be inspired by this?

Hobbies: Working out, walks with my pup, watching documentaries, Survivor, google-journeys, eating good food and Earth/cosmic science.

Pet Peeves: Slow walkers on the sidewalks of NYC, exceedingly slow baristas and lazy individuals who don’t utilize the gifts/opportunities they have been given.

3 Words to Describe You: Perfectionist, outgoing, overachiever.

If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why? 1) My Bible – because man cannot live by bread (or rice) alone. 2) My pillow – because it would be a super comfy piece of home and I perform better well rested. 3) A mirror – because sometimes as a dancer you have to be able to look at yourself in the eye and say “pull up and push through! You’re not actually that hungry.” I think this would work well for me as a Survivor castaway too.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Yikes. Hopefully I will be unlike anyone thus far (in a good way), but if I had to pick: Malcolm Freberg and Stephenie LaGrossa for their hyper-competitiveness and athleticism; Bob Crowley for his nerdy science knowledge and ingenuity; and Lisa Whelchel for her faith.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I’m dying to play this game. You can never truly know what your limits are until you push them. I’m tired of watching others do it and I’m ready to experience it for myself firsthand.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I'm good at maintaining a positive mindset, I'm resourceful and I’m physically fit. I'm not a quitter, I enjoy being outdoors plus I can make fire.

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I'm a people-person who is physically tough, smart, well-spoken and strong willed; that last characteristic makes me a fighter until the end. I can lie when needed, I love to compete and I excel under pressure.

What Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One? Having the chance to participate in this adventure together, not to mention the joint lessons I'm certain we will take away from it, will not only strengthen, but help fortify our relationship for the future. I'm really excited about getting to do such a once in a lifetime thing with the guy I love.

FU Josh Canfield.  Loud Americans in foreign countries?  Really?  You can't leave the stereotype bashing to foreigners?

 

My biggest pet peeve?  Americans who bash their countrymen.

Ok, maybe I was having a bad day when I posted this.  But that doesn't mean I'm not keeping my eye on you Josh Canfield.

Josh was pretty quick to figure out that he was gonna be the "swing vote" at the TC.

If I remember the vote correctly - Dale, John, Wes & Alec voted for Nadia.

And Val, Nadia, & Jaclyn voted for Dale.

Baylor voted for Nadia (so much for a 'girls' alliance on this tribe)

And Josh voted for Baylor??? - What a wuss!

I think that I prefer Josh over Reed and from the edits, I think that Josh might be the one to watch.  He knows the game.

I thought it was an interesting game move that Josh voted for Baylor and then immediately told her he did it, why and sucked her right in to his grand scheme of things.  He's definitely a student of the game. 

 

Seems this might be a strategy to drag an idiot like Baylor thru the game because she is bound to tick off a bunch of people and nobody would vote for her in a final 3.  I hope this is not a repeat of BB in that respect.

Good Lord, I hope not.

Shows like Survivor, TAR, BB, etc. are designed for people to compete against each other - and may the best man (or woman) win.

"Dragging an idiot" may be good strategy for 1 specific player. And it does provide some quick & easy laughs. However, in the long run the viewers want to see a competition between strong players. IMHO That's Entertainment!!!

Josh may be successful with this strategy, and if it is, I just want it to be entertaining.

Josh is a breath of fresh air in the strategy department.  He just comes out swinging with what he did and why he did it so nothing has a chance to fester while the others are figuring it out.  It always comes with an earnest apology ("I couldn't tell you (Baylor..why he wrote down her name) because ..." people would think they were working together;  and "I changed my vote, it was me...just didn't have time to tell you").  He's so dang sincere he gets forgiven and then he pushes on to getting them to think about something else.

 

I actually think he's going to win this game unless the rest of them wise up.  He's definitely a student of Survivor!

Perhaps not my friend. Coming on strong does not help in this game. I think Jeremy's next.

Reed is definitely my new Survivor BFF just because of the jury speech

where he stuck it to Missy.  It was the only part of the finale worth watching

or mentioning (and by the fact that most of the posts are 8 days old I think

that goes without saying)
