Brady’s FBI “employers are giving him a really hard time about his” Survivor gig.

Brady’s FBI “employers are giving him a really hard time about his” Survivor gig.
Survivor All-Stars Brady Finta is “a member of the FBI Los Angeles SWAT Team,” according to his bio, and his “employers are giving him a really hard time about his dip into reality TV. Apparently, most of the authority figures who signed off on his little adventure now either don’t remember or simply don’t believe they would ever sign anything like that and Brady must have lied his way onto the show.” That’s according to his fiancĂ©e Bronwen, aka Broni, who writes about her reactions to his experiences on The WOW Repot, where she works (via TVTattle). She has bad news for Brady fans, which is that “you won’t see much more of Brady. Even if he wins the mill they probably won’t let him have it. They have told him he can not go to New York and do any post production, not a single appearance or interview.” As she has no idea how he’ll do on the show, she writes, “I watched JP get voted off and felt the end was near for Brady too. I can’t believe all the cute guys are leaving. I won’t be watching if the Fat 5 are left.” Earlier, she wrote about her “feelings of frustration, sadness, anger, resentment, and pure dislike. The fat guys are ruining Brady’s chance at a million bucks.”
+ also: Jeff Probst says some Survivors’ return to reality is “a little tragic.”
