One of Survivor's all-time fan favorites is gearing up for a comeback – but this time, he left the island on his own terms.
Joe Anglim, who competed on Worlds Apart and Second Chance – he was voted off both times after being perceived as a physical threat – just returned from two months shooting a new reality series in Maui alongside fellow competitor Kelly Wiglesworth.
"We've been adventuring," Anglim, 27, said at Thursday's PEOPLE VIP reception for the Hearts of Reality event in Orlando benefiting Give Kids the World.
