Brandon Bellinger - Bio
  • S11 logo Guatemala bio

    From his official CBS Survivor: Guatemala cast bio page:


    CBS pre-game interview"Brandon Bellinger was born and raised on a farm in Manhattan, Kansas, where he attended Rock Creek High School. In the summer of 2004, he went to Montana for five months and worked as a wildland firefighter for the Sula Ranger District in the Bitteroot National Forest. He currently works as a farmer and rancher. 

    In his spare time, Bellinger enjoys mudding with his 4x4, increasing his physical ability and any activities that "get your blood pumping." He describes himself as outgoing and fearless. The accomplishment he is most proud of is climbing to the top of a radio tower, which he describes as a ladder that goes 1000 feet in the air, in order to conquer his fear of heights. His future plans include traveling the world. 

    Bellinger continues to reside in Manhattan, Kansas. His birth date is January 22, 1983."
