‘Survivor’ contestant goes from a battalion to a tribe

Jerry Sims

“…Sims, 49, of Rock Hill is one of 16 contestants on the popular CBS reality series, which returns for its 18th installment Thursday.

He’ll mark 27 years of service in the S.C. National Guard this year, an experience that he says came in handy during taping of the show, set in the Brazilian highlands.

“The military teaches us a lot of outdoor survival skills and I’ve developed a skill to relate to anybody,” says Sims, a first sergeant in the 1222 Engineering Battalion in Rock Hill.”
