Josh Canfield was a contestant on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur. He competed on the season with his boyfriend, Reed Kelly. Josh started the game on the Coyopa tribe, and due to their early losing streak in Immunity challenges, he was forced to form alliances very quickly. He subtly controlled an all-male alliance, while also keeping his options open with Baylor.
Josh survived a tribe switch when his new tribe won both Immunity challenges, but it was bittersweet, as Josh would have liked the opportunity to take out his biggest threat, Jeremy Collins. Heading into the merge, both Josh and Jeremy were perceived as the biggest strategic threats, and therefore butted heads. Josh came out on the losing end of the rivalry, after swing votes, Jaclyn and Jon decided to align with Jeremy’s alliance.
Having competed together and against each other in San Juan Del Sur, Inside Survivor decided to reach out to Josh to get his opinions on Jeremy and his second chance. Josh Canfield talks Jeremy Collins and his chances on Survivor: Cambodia.
What was your overall perception of Jeremy’s game on Survivor: San Juan Del Sur? Pros and Cons?
Jeremy started off strong, but then he got cocky when he got it in his head that he had this game won already – always a dangerous mind frame in Survivor. Not shockingly, his alliance sensed this from him and said goodbye.
How do you think Jeremy will change his game on Survivor: Cambodia – Second Chance?”
I think he will desperately try to appear a non-threat, and keep the focus on the guys who he could easily point at as larger threats (i.e. Spencer, Joe, Terry, Andrew).
“Who on the Second Chance cast is Jeremy’s biggest threat?”
Himself. Jeremy’s biggest threat is Jeremy. He has to contain himself, and not let his tribemates in on the fact that he thinks he already has them beat.
“Who on the Second Chance cast do you see Jeremy potentially aligning with?”
I think he will definitely try and rope Kelley and Keith back in. He can easily use the train of thought that they already have a built in alliance from being on the same season. I could see him doing well with Ciera, Joe, Kelly Wiglesworth, and Tasha. I think those people would compliment him well.
“What is the major thing Jeremy needs to avoid this time around?”
He needs to remember to make everyone feel included and a part of his tribe, even the people that aren’t in his alliance. You never know when you may need an outcast to help you swing the votes in your favor.
“What is Jeremy’s secret weapon to win?”
He works hard around camp, and can be charming when he wants to be.
“What kind of animal/player will Jeremy be this time – Fox (cunning strategist), Bear (strong and loyal), Goat (no jury votes), Dead Fish (dragged to the end)?”
I hope he’s able to be a Bear in the eyes of his tribemates, but behind the scenes a Fox. He has it in him, we’ll see if he’s able to pull it off.
