‘Survivor’ Contestant Kellyn Bechtold talks about this upcoming season, and what it was like starting the show. - From WANE
(WANE)- Survivor is preparing to enter it’s 36th season and Kellyn Bechtold is excited to be a part of it, exclaiming, “I love this show, I mean I’m a Survivor crazy fan, and to hear that I was going to get to be one of the 20 people to get to play this season, it was one of the best days of my life.
Which may be cheesy to say but it really was.” Kellyn also saw Survivor as a way to explore what’s possible when she listens to her gut, adding, “I had done a lot of living life how I should, what I should do, instead of what I really wanted to listen to myself and what I want to do.
So applying to Survivor was this first step of me being like that would be so cool, if I put my mind to it what can I find.
As the show prepared to kick off Kellyn says she was nervous but also excited to get started, “That moment when, I was on the beach on the first day, it’s so overwhelming and so crazy to watch the show come to life before your eyes.
You haven’t spoken to these 19 strangers, It’s just crazy!” Bechtold is a 31-year-old career counselor.
