Survivor 29 is here and we’ve got Dale and Kelley Wentworth as a team for you to meet. Read on for the facts on them below.
1. Dale and Kelley Are a Father/Daughter Team
What Dale is most looking forward to on Survivor, is spending time with his daughter Kelley. Dale tells CBS:
To be given the opportunity to play this game with my daughter is almost indescribable. I am looking forward to being able to watch her in settings that I may not get to see again and hopefully watch her excel in them. I’ll have to move past the image of her being my “little girl” to her having grown into a confident proud woman, one that can handle herself in any situation that life can throw at her, and know that she will come out on top, or at the least, throw some “mean punches” on the way as she will never quit trying, no matter what. I think we will build a deeper and stronger bond together after playing Survivor.
What Dale is most proud of in life, is watching his children grow into responsible adults.
2. Kelley Is Most Proud of Moving Out of her Hometown and Making Something of Herself

Kelley’s dad is a farmer and, though she’s very proud of him, Kelley wanted to break away from their small town and start a life of her own. She said she’s never asked for money or help of any kind from her parents and she achieved becoming a Marketing Manager on her own. Nonetheless, she’s still got her farm roots as she states:
I grew up on a farm so I’ve seen and done it all. I’ve fed cows, cleaned up poop, driven a tractor, hauled fire wood and the list goes on. I’m also very competitive and would never give up in a challenge.
3. Both Kelley And Dale Are Inspired by Dale’s Parents
Dale, as well as Kelley, see Dale’s parents as their inspiration in life. Kelley told CBS about her inspiration, saying:
My grandparents (on my dad’s side). They are two of the toughest, hardest working people I’ve ever been around. My grandpa was in World War II and my grandma was a nurse. They moved to Washington to start a farm from scratch. They are still alive and are more active than most 80 year olds should be!
Dad Dale added some words about his inspiration, saying:
My dad. He and my mom moved here with nothing and cleared ground and built a farm, taught all us kids a work ethic that has stayed with me all my life.
4. These Two Have Had a Rocky Relationship Over the Years
Like any parent and child, these two have had their issues in the past, but Kelley is hoping that being on Survivor will change that. She told CBS:
There is no perfect word to describe how it would be to play Survivor with my Dad. We’ve had many ups and downs over the past few years and I would love for this unique opportunity to improve our Father/Daughter bond. He is truly the only person I would want to do this with!
5. Kelley Is Ready to Play Dirty
According to her CBS bio, Kelley is not afraid to play a little dirty to get to the end on Survivor. She reveals:
I’m competitive and I’ll never back down. I’ll always keep trying to move to the next step and I’m not afraid to fib a little or hurt people to be at the top. Everything I’ve ever tried to do in life I’ve succeeded so I know I can do this too.
