John Cochran. Little did we know when we first saw the 24-year-old, tan-averse Harvard Law student five months ago at the start of Survivor: South Pacific that he would become one of the biggest, and most polarizing, power players to outwit, outplay, and outlast on the venerable franchise in some time. A self-professed “student of the game,” Cochran initially found that his close study of Survivor’s previous 22 seasons didn’t prepare him for actually being on the show himself. Boy, did he get over that in a hurry. In one instantly legendary move at a deadlocked tribal council, he turned his back on his original tribe and voted with the other side, a decision that resulted in each of his former tribemates getting sent home one by one.
Ultimately, that move may have cost him the $1 million. But it did land him a gig live-blogging the season premiere of Survivor: One World tonight on EW.com. Please join us starting at 7:40 pm ET, when Cochran will begin chatting live with you, taking your questions and offering his insight into the new season. Then he’ll stick around for the entirety of the One World premiere, adding his running commentary. The tribe has spoken. You must be here. See you then.
