Adelstein Fits into Brains Team in All-New Survivor Concept
Adelstein will be a member of the Brains team on Survivor: Cagayan, which is the 28th season of the show. This year the show is split into three different tribes at the beginning based on Brains, Beauty and Brawn.
The show is set to premier on Feb. 26, 2014.
Adelstein is not the only expert game player on Survivor: Cagayan. He’ll start Survivor on the same team as former high school chess champion Spencer Bledsoe.
It’s worth noting that Jean-Robert Bellande made it to eighth place in Survivor: China so Adelstein would certainly do his best to last even longer.
That video doesn't make him look very good but let's hope he's playing up a character. Seems like a typical poker player - dramatically overestimates his own abilities and underestimates how smart everyone else is.

@acesacesaces you mean they didn't tune in for Jean-Robert?

Definitely a proven poker player, and very good at table-talk psychology aspect of the game so I could see him doing well on the show. Will certainly get a lot of hard-core poker players watching Survivor for the first time :P

Looks like this guy has it all - brains, brawn and beauty! I'd be his cuddle partner in the shelter!

He can't possibly represent poker worse than Jean Robert did. That guy is the ass clown of all ass clowns. GL Garret.
