'Survivor' : Brad Culpepper defends strategy

Posted on

He formed a power alliance right out of the gate, but then broke up that power alliance and subsequently got powered right out of the game. However, Survivor Blood vs. Water’s Brad Culpepper insists there is another level to his strategy that people are not seeing, and that all of his actions were not to benefit him, but rather his wife Monica’s game. The ousted contestant called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to discuss his controversial run on the reality program — a run that saw one person curse him out, another flip him off, and another stage a Tribal Council coup to remove him from the tribe.

Did you think Brad would hold back in our interview? Hell to the no! After accusing me of having a major man crush on ally-turned-rival John Cody, Brad weighs in on whether the last duel was fair, what it was like being reunited with Candice at Ponderosa (where contestants go after they are eliminated), and what ultimately led to his downfall in the game. It’s a lively, intense chat — as if you’d expect anything but from the man — and you can now listen to the whole thing on the InsideTV Podcast by clicking on the audio player below.

But that’s not all. We start out this week’s podcast with interviews with two lovely ladies of The Walking Dead. Up first, Dania Gurira (who plays Michonne), tells us all about season 4’s most shocking event of all — the fact that Michonne has cracked several smiles this season! We also ask her all about the emotional scene we saw this past week of Michonne crying and clutching baby Judith. What sort of baskstory has yet to be uncovered there? Listen in to see what Gurira has to say about that!

And we also chat with the farmer’s daughter herself — Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie on The Walking Dead. What can we expect from her relationship with Glenn? Is a pregnant Maggie a possibility? And how awkward — or awesome? — is it filming love scenes on set with lots of people standing around and filming you? Lauren tells all.
