Among the 16 new cast members who will be on Survivor South Pacific with returning players Ben “Coach” Wade and Ozzy Lusth is someone with a very familiar last name: Brandon Hantz, three-time loser Russell Hantz’s nephew.
Brandon, who’s 20 and married and works at his uncle’s company (Hantz Tankering Service), was identified as a cast member early this morning on Survivor Skills by DanieuBleau, who correctly identified this season’s location well before there was any concrete evidence. (There was a teaser posted a week ago.) The accurate information about the taping location followed by cast member information suggests a source such as a crew member, so while I hope this is a Kimbo Slice-like rumor, it may not be.
Others report that Brandon had a casting video posted on his YouTube profile, but that, along with his Facebook profile, has apparently been deleted. His YouTube profile says,
“hi my names Brandon im 18 i have a lovely wife and son that im very proud of its a long story but anyways i love Jesus very much and cant wait to here from you guys! GOD BLESS=)”
