When they first came up with the idea for Blood versus Water, it made me wonder what new players we could see that are in some way related to a former player of the game. Well, I might as well get to listing all of those that I can think of or otherwise remember.
One of the most notable people to think of is So Kim’s sister. They were both going to be on San Juan del Sur, but then her sister couldn’t play for medical reasons. While So appeared on the next season, her sister hasn’t been on another season yet and I think that she should.
This makes you think about the original Blood versus Water season. RC and her father were supposed to be on it. They were even there on site, but he couldn’t pass the medical tests and they were flown out and replaced by Candice and John. Why hasn’t her father actually appeared on the show? I don’t know. It could be any number of reasons. But I think that he should play at some point.
I’m going to mention other people that I know of were alternates to Blood versus Water and would thus have family members wanting to play at one point. Bobby Jon from Palau and Guatemala had a female cousin who wanted to play with him. Chelsea from One World was wanting to play with her father. Cindy from Guatemala could have played with her twin. Edna from South Pacific could have played with her sister. Eliza from Vanuatu and Micronesia could have played with her mother. Greg from Borneo might have been offered to play with his sister. Holly from Nicaragua could have played with her daughter. I have not seen any reason why these people couldn’t play on their own. It hasn’t happened yet for some odd reason.
Jamie from Guatemala could have played with his twin, but that didn’t happen. Jane from Nicaragua could have played with her daughter. Jerri from Australia, All-Stars, and Heroes versus Villains had two known, potential partners: her sister and her father. Jonathan from Cook Islands, Micronesia, and Philippines had a then underage son he could have played with. Marty from Nicaragua could have played with his wife or son. Sandra from Pearl Islands, Heroes versus Villains, and Game Changers could have played with her daughter. Shane from Panama might have been on with his son if he filled out paperwork on time. Gretchen from Borneo could have played with her daughter. Troyzan from One World and Game Changers could have played with his brother. Terry from Panama and Cambodia could have played if his daughter was older at the time.
Outside of the people that we know had alternates on Blood versus Water, we do have to wonder about various other people. Would the kids of Rob and Amber ever appear on the show? Richard Hatch has over a hundred kids because he donated sperm. They could do a whole season based off of his seed alone if all of them could be rounded up and wanted to play. Of course, I’d rather not do that as it might exploit the situation to some extent.
Well, that’s all that I can think about for this post. I might share something about my personal life that happened when I do the post of the season premiere later. I don’t know if this blog will wind up going on hiatus or not, although it might not have to after all. I don’t know what else to say so I will end this blog post. For now, this is Adam Decker, signing off.
