"I hope … you don't cast your vote based on that you got your feelings hurt. I think it's poor sportsmanship, and I don't think that it relays who the true Survivor is. It just shows that you got your feelings hurt."
– Tina Wesson, winner, Survivor: The Australian Outback

How epic is the Survivor gross-food challenge?

Rupert Boneham is one of Survivor's most iconic characters. When he returned for Survivor: Blood vs. Water, he competed with his wife, Laura.

But it fell apart two minutes into the game. Laura, 44, was immediately voted out of her tribe. Rupert chose to take her place on Redemption Island. After losing the first challenge, he finished the game in last place.

Laura managed to last longer than anyone expected, until she was blindsided by her tribe, sent to Redemption Island on Day 18, and left for good the next day. She talks to PEOPLE about her game – and emerging from her husband's shadow.

On paper, John Cody is the type of contestant who should do well on Survivor. Athletic, attractive and affable, the 30-year-old doctor from Washington DC seemed primed to go the distance.

But things went awry 30 seconds into the game when his wife, Candice, was voted out of her tribe. As she dominated challenges on Redemption Island, he became a bigger target.

After being blindsided on Day 8, he lasted 11 more days on Redemption Island until he lost a challenge and was eliminated from the game.

He talks to PEOPLE about his game, his socks, and crying in his underwear on national TV.

Survivor's Kat Edorsson: 'Not One Person Was On My Side'

When Kat Edorsson played Survivor: One World, she was known for her goofy antics – dancing, cracking jokes, and farting on her fellow castaways. Returning for Survivor: Blood vs. Water, Edorsson was much more subdued, never clicking with the people on her tribe. She found herself voted out on Day 16.

Playing the game with her boyfriend, Big Brother winner Hayden Moss, Edorsson worried aloud that he would dump her after she was voted off, because "no one wants to date someone who makes the merge." Edorsson, 23, talks about her experience – and whether she and Hayden are still together.

Something's rotten on Survivor.

You got a whiff of it when Aras went off by himself to meditate, leaving the rest of the tribe behind to gossip and plot. You could sniff it when Vytas smirked in self-satisfaction at Tribal Council.

Survivor's Brad Culpepper: I'm Not a Sexist

Brad Culpepper understands that you either love him or hate him, and he's fine with that. As one of the alpha males on Survivor: Blood vs. Water, Culpepper's big personality rubbed some of his tribesmates the wrong way. He was blindsided on day 10, when his tribe sent him to Redemption Island. After losing a challenge on day 14, he was sent home – much to the dismay of his wife, Monica.

It's not Culpepper's first time in the public eye: The 44-year-old Tampa, Fla., lawyer was a defensive tackle in the NFL for nine seasons. Here, he talks about being blindsided, his puzzle prowess and what he really thinks of women.

Ah, the dreaded swap. For torturous weeks you've been doggedly laying the groundwork for a long-term Survivor game plan. You built alliances. You won challenges. You voted out threats. You have a clear path to the endgame. Then all your plans are scuttled by the random draw of a new buff. Oh Survivor! Oh, life!
