A Big Brother winner will be appearing as a contestant on the new season of Survivor.
Big Brother 12 winner Hayden Moss will be one of 20 castaways appearing on Survivor: Blood vs. Water this fall, according to a Tuesday report by Entertainment Weekly. The new season of the long-running reality series will feature 10 former contestants competing with their relatives or significant others.
Moss is the boyfriend of Survivor: One World contestant Kat Edorsson, who will also be returning for this season. Edorsson was famously blindsided in Survivor: One World and came in seventh place.
Moss came close to being cast on Survivor before ultimately being cast for Big Brother instead in 2010. Survivor host Jeff Probst told Entertainment Weekly that he even met with Moss during the casting process.
"We were in the room talking and for whatever reason, I can't even remember now, it just didn't work out," Probst revealed. "Either we had somebody like him, I don't know. And the next thing I know he's on Big Brother! If you had just waited five minutes we would have put you on Survivor!"
Entertainment Weekly writer Dalton Ross sat down with Moss and Edorsson before they embarked on the season. The couple talked about the difficulties of Survivor vs. Big Brother.
"I will answer that question exactly in about 39 days," Moss said. "Really, I'll be the only person ever that can answer that question. So I'm excited to test it out and see what Survivor is all about."

The identities of the other 18 castaways have not officially been revealed, but this cast reveal suggests that an announcement will come soon. However, a cast list was leaked this summer and included both Moss and Edorsson, so the assumed list can now be considered to be legitimate.
Survivor: Blood vs. Water premieres Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
