Survivor Season 32 Brawn Tribe

Now that the eighteen contestants for Survivor Kaôh Rōng – Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty 2 have been spoiled it is time to reveal which tribe each of these men and women belongs to. There has been some confusion over certain people’s tribe placement based on either looks or occupation, but I can now confirm the definitive tribe divisions. Check out the Survivor Season 32 Brawn tribe.

The Brawn tribe, who will wear red, is made up of real estate agent Alecia Holden, professional body builder Cydney Gillon, possible postal service worker Darnell Hamilton, contractor and adjunct professor Jennifer Lanzetti, bounty hunter Kyle “Sarg” Jason, and retired NBA star Scot Pollard.


The biggest question mark on this tribe, apart from the one on Darnell’s face, was Alecia. With her modelling background, and white collar real estate job, people didn’t understand why she would be considered a Brawn tribemate. Remember on Survivor: Cagayan, Lindsey, the single mother hairdresser, was a member of the Brawn tribe. There was nothing particularly brawny about Lindsey on paper, but because her job involved using her hands, and because she looked like a tattooed up bad-ass, CBS placed her on the Brawn tribe. There could be a number of reasons why production put Alecia on the Brawn tribe; like Lindsey, she has tattoos and piercings, and that could be all it took to put her with the Brawns over fellow young attractive blonde Julia. Alecia has also modelled fitness gear in the past, so CBS could sell her as a fitness model to tie into the supposed athleticism of the Brawn tribe.

On paper, the Brawn tribe look strong. We don’t know much information about Darnell, but we do know he is 28 and supposedly in shape. Combine that with the athletic background of Scot Pollard, and the body building career of Cydney, plus Jason and Jennifer are both very used to physical work, and Alecia looks young and fit, then this tribe could be unstoppable in pre-merge challenges. The original Brawn tribe on Survivor: Cagayan dominated; they didn’t lose a single tribal challenge until after the tribe switch, and even then they only lost one. I see no reason why this Brawn tribe couldn’t achieve the same success.

Survivor Kaôh Rōng – Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty 2 filmed in Cambodia and will air February 2016 on CBS.

  1. I question how much of an asset someone like Cydney is going to be in the challenge because having so much muscle mass with so little body fat is gonna pose problems on a show like survivor meaning she honestly gonna probably struggle in comps to Crystal Cox levels.

  2. I wouldn’t be surprised if they just listed Alecia as “Fitness Model” and just rolled with that.
