Survivor 2019 premieres with 18 contestants, but not all of them are new. There are four returning competitors, hoping to end up the ultimate winner, and one of them is Kelley Wentworth.
When speaking about her decision to return to the show, Wentworth told Entertainment Weekly, “Enough time has passed, I just feel ready. I feel like you can’t always let opportunities pass you by. And, still no kids. I’m married now, but it’s just like you never know in the next few years what might be in my life and this just seemed like the perfect time. So, ready to try again.” As for changes that Wentworth has gone through since she was on the show before, she said that she has gotten married and learned to have more patience. She said she’s also better at handling her emotions and relationships with others.
Previously on the show, Wentworth made it to the final four, so she definitely has a good chance at being the season 38 winner. Wentworth certainly thinks she can win. She told Entertainment Weekly, “This game takes so much out of you, so my only goal this time is to win so that I don’t even have to entertain the thought of coming back.”
According to Soap Dirt, there are many reasons why Wentworth could be a front-runner this season. Soap Dirt reported that Wentworth is the “idol queen”. When she was previously on the show, she found an idol and then cleverly buried it so that no one would know she had it. She is also great at doing physical challenges.
The show’s longtime host, Jeff Probst, has also said that he thinks Wentworth could end up a winner this season, according to Entertainment Weekly. Probst said he thinks that she’s great at challenges, she knows how to talk to people, and she is very convincing. Probst stated, “She’s who I would align with. I just think Kelley has it all, and she’s got just enough physical skills, great social skills, very aggressive in terms of finding idols, and she can lie like crazy. I think it’s her time.”
Probst also said, “I believe Wentworth is destined to win this game. I have since we first met her and it’s why we keep bringing her back. She has all the skills and it has not gone to her head. Every time she shows up, it seems like she’s been sharpening that knife for months going, ‘I’m ready to try again, get me back in, coach.’”
Wentworth was previously on Survivor San Juan Del Sur and Survivor Second Chance.
