Former MLB Player, Amazing Race Alums Featured in Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water Cast

Former MLB Player, Amazing Race Alums Featured in Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water Cast

CBS has announced the cast of the 29th season of Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water. The cast does not include any returning players but does feature a few pseudo-celebrities – former MLB pitcher John Rocker and twin Amazing Race contestants Nadiya and Natalie Anderson. Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water will premiere Wednesday, September 26th on CBS at 8PM EST.

A tenth couple was cut from filming at the last minute following a medical checkup, just days before filming, trimming the cast size from the originally reported 20 to the final 18.

John Rocker was a relief pitcher who pitched for the Atlanta Braves, Cleveland Indians, Texas Rangers, and Tampa Bay Devil Rays. In 1999 he caused controversy in a Sports Illustrated interview when he made disparaging remarks against homosexuals and several ethnic groups. When asked about the possibility of him ever pitching in New York for the Yankees or Mets, Rocker said:

I’d retire first. It’s the most hectic, nerve-racking city. Imagine having to take the 7 Train to the ballpark looking like you’re riding through Beirut next to some kid with purple hair, next to some queer with AIDS, right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time, right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It’s depressing…The biggest thing I don’t like about New York are the foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English. Asians and Koreans and Vietnamese and Indians and Russians and Spanish people and everything up there. How the hell did they get in this country?

The rest of the cast consists of…
