Tie-dye wearing Rupert exits 'Survivor: Blood vs. Water'

'Survivor' is back. The CBS reality show, now in its 27th season, drops a group of strangers on a remote island where they must outwit, outlast and outplay one another in numerous challenges to become the one million dollar winner. Each week a player is voted off the island by their own tribe. But this season, the contestants are no strangers. Past players have returned to compete against none other than their loved ones. Once voted out, players have a chance to get back in the game though by winning a duel with a player from the other tribe on 'redemption island.'

In the very first episode of 'Survivor: Blood vs. Water,' the contestants were asked to immediately to send someone from their tribe to redemption island. The 'loved ones' tribe picked Laura Boneham, wife of former player Rupert Boneham while the returning players chose Candace of 'Survivor: Cook Islands' and 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains' fame. But before the two could head out, show host Jeff Probst threw them a curve ball - Candace and Laura's loved ones could swap places with them if they wanted to. Rupert Boneham didn't hesitate to save his wife, while Candace's husband John opted to stay put. However, when it came to the duel, Boneham just couldn't keep himself calm enough to defeat Candace at balancing 10 wooden pots and therefore was sent home. I recently spoke with Boneham, who said despite the outcome he is still a fan of the game.
