Who will return?
Survivor Philippines twist next season is based on something many of us said we would like to see as a twist if it were ever put together and that is the return of medical evacuees and allowing them to complete their game. In the history of the show there have been 10 medical evacs. Below are the 10 and I will give an opinion on who I think stands a shot at returning. We will start from the first evacuee and finish with the most recent.
Mike Skupin falls into the fire
I genuinely believe he is there. Mike was such a popular contestant at the time of his evacuation with his cast and during the airing he also was so well loved by the public. I think CBS is aware of the popularity and ratings that bringing back "Scoop" would bring. Plus Skup was away from social sites for the appropriate amount of time it would take to film the show. I would love to see him back and place him as one of my picks of returnees. He showed leadership qualities during his season so I can see him as a leader of a tribe in the coming season.
Bruce Kanegei Medically Evacuated
I recall watching this with tears streaming down my face. It was so gut wrenching to watch. I was relieved to see him return for the jury and to know he was okay and it was nothing serious. I hope Bruce is one, it would be amazing to see him finish what he started and be given a shot this time. I don't think he is there but you never know.
Tribute To Bruce
Papa Smurf is a lovely man who has competed in multiple inline skate marathons. He also enjoys biking, canoeing and coaching. He spent many years coaching his children's soccer, baseball, basketball and football teams also. I would love to see his return but I am not fully sure he is on the list. I found him enjoyable to watch.

Mike Borassi speaks!
Watching Russell collapse during the challenge and then seeing him unconscious and his eyes roll back into his head did not look good and was very scary. He blacked out several times and was very incoherent. Seeing his tears as he was carted off broke my heart as a viewer. In all honesty I believe he is one of them.
His story at the end of how badly he wanted to be on would rate high with us viewers.
His story as a leader on Galu would fit for a tribe leader on this season. He was fun to watch, likable and relatable. I think he is there.
Russell Swann Evacuation
All in all as a villain he made "good tv" meaning he made you talk and people talked a lot and still are. Would the producers chance having him return with his character being so highly controversial? That we will have to wait and see. My belief is though he makes TV people buzz about, I seriously cannot see him as a leader that would last very long in the game. His strategies ended up costing his tribe in the long run and his apologies on the finale seemed more surface and not as genuine as Alicia's was. Just my take on Colton. He does make a great villain to watch though.
One Man Down Colton Evacuation
My picks for returnees are Skupin, Penner and Swann. Looking forward to watching the upcoming season and who does return and see how things will play out for them with a total new cast. Let's hope for the best for them!
