  • Colton began on the all-male tribe of Manono
  • Sabrina found the Manolo hidden immunity idol, and ended up giving it to Colton, who was on the hot seat very early
  • As Colton had power in the game, it quickly came to an end when he was stricken with appendicitis. He was forced to leave the game and kept the immunity idol with him.


I have to say, if you give me a name Colton and ask me what part of the country I’d think he’s from, I’d say the south.  I’d also probably say he’s like 250lbs and plays for a college football team, but I guess 1 out of 2 isn’t bad.

I’m guessing his parents were hoping by giving him a manly name, he’d turn out to play for the Tide or something, but it turns out he was gay.. which didn’t make his parents thrilled according to his bio. However, it appears they did eventually warm up to the idea, which is a good thing for Colton (as it doesn’t always happen, sadly).  Enough about stuff you can read in his bio below, time to talk about Colton as a player.

Based on what I read below, I’m thinking Colton may be on the beach for quite awhile.  Honestly, being gay in the south and coming out at 12 is a pretty brave thing, and to stand up to people about it shows he knows a thing or two about handling people.  Being in college makes him have at least some intelligence, and being best friends with his grandmother shows a certain character trait that could win over others.


Name (Age): Colton Cumbie (21)
Tribe Designation: Manono
Current Residence: Monroeville, Ala.
Occupation: College Student
Personal Claim to Fame: I came out as gay when I was 12 years old, sixth grade in South Alabama. My parents definitely did not run out to join Parents of Lesbian and Gay (PFLAG) and it took a long time but they came around. It was weird at school but I didn’t play the victim and run home to cry. I stood up for myself and explained that being gay wasn’t who I was but part of who I am.
Inspiration in Life: My nanny/ grandmother who is technically my great-aunt but she and her husband took my mom in when she was 2 months old after her dad abandoned her. My grandmother is the most amazing person I know. She is literally my 73-year-old best friend! She has been there for me through everything, definitely the biggest impact on who I am today.
Hobbies: Socializing, watching reality TV and writing.
Pet Peeves: Ugly people who think they’re hot.
3 Words to Describe You: Adorable, entertaining and opinionated.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: As far as my personality goes I would be a mix of Queen Parvati, Corinne and JT. I embody three of their distinctive traits; heartlessness (in a loveable way), low tolerance for trash and that people hate me but still want to be my best friend.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I want to play the game! The strategy, the challenges, I want it all! I don’t care about the fame or whether people love or hate me. I would love nothing more than to see my verbally abusive stepdad’s reaction when I win a million dollars on national TV.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I live my life as I if I’m playing Survivor! I have a strategy for everything. Hell, the way I got my boyfriend was a strategy.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I don’t believe, I know! There has never been anyone with the social skills and charisma I possess on this show. I’m confident, hilarious, athletic, good looking, adorable and I have good teeth with a hint of Southern charm. What more could you want?
