Probst: The cast is fantastic. This
group of people, everybody's popping. We have a

were just sort of, one guy sold coconuts.
Vince Sly: I have a project called Coconut
Caravan. It's a circus influenced, gypsy themed
coconut vending cart.
Probst: And one girl worked on a sailboat.
Jenn Brown: It's like me sitting on a boat

Probst: I just kept looking at them and
finally went, "Oh my God. The no collars!"
Hali Ford: I mean, I am a sweet Southern

Tyler Fredrickson: I most recently worked at
the largest Hollywood agency in the business.
So Kim: I work in fashion. I'm a buyer
at a major department store. I've always lived
by my work. That's what defines me.
Joaquin Souberbielle: I go to an interview, I
get it, largely in part because I did just talk my way

Vince Sly: The life that I've lived, being
able to travel 37 countries on my own money, surviving
as a young adult from 15 on, being able to create my
own communities, my own sustainable life. I
really fell like all elements that have brought me to
this point, will benefit me in this game.

my hearing until later in life.

Parvati: You'll find out soon enough when
Survivor 30 premieres.
