Time for another edition of Alabamians on reality shows! There are a couple of shows featuring people from Alabama this fall!
Survivor: Blood vs. Water
For the 27th edition of Survivor, ten veterans got to bring their loved ones for the game. And there are some major twists like the return of redemption island. Do you remember the contestant named Colton Cumbie who is from Monroeville? He brought along his partner, Caleb Bankston for this season. And Colton has plans to marry Caleb in a same-sex marriage. Somehow I am surprised that Colton has not been disowned by people in Alabama because he is gay.
Survivor: Blood vs. Water premieres on Wednesday September 18th at 8/7 pm on CBS. To learn more info. go to: http://www.cbs.com/shows/survivor/
Season 12 of Project Runway on Lifetime has someone from Birmingham on the show! Ken Laurence is from Birmingham and has already caused a social media firestorm because Ken is depicted as a villain on the show. Tempers boiled over during one episode and it caused one person on Ken’s team to be sent home. So far, Ken is still on Project Runway and has not been eliminated yet! Hopefully he can bring home a win for the State of Alabama!
New episodes of Project Runway airs at 9/8 pm on Lifetime on Thursday night. To learn more info. go to: http://www.mylifetime.com/shows/project-runway
On the Wednesday September 18th episode of The X-Factor. 14-year-old Millie Thrasher from Birmingham will be auditioning in front of judges Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland, Demi Lovato and Paulina Rubio on the show! Her accomplishments includes childhood cheerleading with ACE Allstars of Alabama, a spot on the lineup of 2011’s One2One tornado benefit in Linn Park, and movie roles in independent films such as The Magic Clover.
