Taylor Lee Collins, son of Tina Wesson of Survivor: Blood vs. Water died in a car accident today in Chattanooga. He is the brother of Katie Collins who was also on the show this season.

I feel so bad. The reunion show will be on December 22, 2013. So tragic. I hope they just don’t attend.

That's awful. I kind of hope they skip the reunion too, and just stay with family instead of facing TV cameras, although if Katie makes the final, they might not have a choice. I wonder if they'd just rack up her votes in absentia? I'm not sure, but this is such a tragedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to them.

Aw ...sad.

I don't think he would do that. That would be heartless.


I really hope Probst doesn't do anything stupid and stir things up during the reunion show for drama. :(

They have to attend. It's in their contracts. I'm sure that situation will be off limits to talk about, unless they bring it up. So sad!
