Survivor: Redemption IslandWelcome to season 22 of “Survivor.”

Joining the crew of “Survivor: Redemption Island” is Krista Klumpp. Tonight, her televised adventure in Nicaragua begins.

Host Jeff Probst rated the contestants (try to forget he already knows the winner) and said about the Fairhope native:

“Krista is a question mark. If she folds, it won’t surprise me. And if she turns out to be this strong pillar on her tribe, it won’t surprise me either.”

Speaking of returning players, Russell Hantz and Rob Mariano, who squared off before in “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains,” get yet another shot at the $1 million grand prize.

Can Klumpp oust the other 17 contestants before they oust her? The journey begins tonight.
