Keith Nale
Previous Finish: 4th place
Season 29: San Juan del Sur

A true fish out of water, Keith was one of three conservative firefighters to appear in the San Juan del Sur season, along with his son Wes and fellow “Second Chancer” Jeremy Collins. Keith admits that he wasn’t the most social or assertive player the first time around, but hopes to focus more on his gameplay in Season 31.

Keith’s unfortunate claim to fame came near the end of his run when he got paranoid at Tribal Council and told his alliance members to “stick to the plan.” That alerted those against him that something was amiss, and resulted in two hidden immunity idols being played (including Keith’s) and Keith’s son Wes going home. Can Keith overcome his previous failures? Gold Derby odds to win: 100/1

Back in San Juan del Sur, Keith’s game was focused too much on his son Wes, even offering him his hidden immunity idol, which Wes declined. Without the crutch of a family member, Keith may surprise everyone — including himself — and make it even farther this season.

Keith won three individual immunity challenges, more than any other players in his original season. That dominant drive will come in handy in the latter days of the season, if he makes it that far.

Even though Keith now knows that he made an unforgivable blunder with his “stick to the plan” comment, it still may not prevent him from shooting his mouth off impulsively. Keith will need to make extra sure that he thinks before he speaks this time around.

As one of this season’s oldest castaways, will Keith find himself outplayed by many of his other younger, more physical tribe mates?
