Contestant-related press and rumors
marynkids at the CBS Survivor board
August 11, 2009: A poster from the CBS site's boards, marynkids, reports some ex-Survivors were seen together on a Pacific-bound flight:

"Looks like there's definitely an all stars coming sis in law's pastor was flying to New Zealand (he's been transferred) and said the plane was chock full of "survivors". Even had pics of himself and JT, but no one was talking about what they were up to."
Reality Blurred
January 28, 2009: Andy Dehnart of Reality Blurred blogging fame posts a late pre-game interview with JT. Among the highlights:

"JT’s a fan of Survivor, and while he’s 'always watched it,' since he was 15 or 16, his application for this season was the first, and was prompted by his mother, who filled out the biographical information for him. But he was ready for the game to begin. 'I’m a really outdoors kind of person; this is really like the ultimate challenge, adventure for me. It’ll be really fun,' he said."
JT's CBS S18 site bio
January, 2009: CBS gets around to putting up S18 content:

"A cattle manager raised in Samson, Alabama, JT operates a registered Angus Cattle Ranch. In addition to preparing the land and working the cattle, this southern charmer is responsible for all the paperwork and marketing associated with running the business.
    This ambitious 24-year-old gets fired up when people insult his intelligence and says 'I'm not a dumb hillbilly, so don’t think it!' However, this may be just the strategy that JT chooses to use and isn’t above playing the 'dumb and innocent country boy role' in an effort to gain alliances with the women. JT attended Troy University and is the first in his family to earn a Bachelors Degree. His is in business administration.
    A true family man, JT values his relationships and will work towards forming alliances that will take him very far in the game. This strong country boy is competitive and determined and will use manipulation in order to help him succeed and ultimately win Survivor.
    JT is single and currently resides in Mobile, Ala. His birthdate is June 23."
