Keeping up with Survivor contestants after they are voted off the island is a game itself. For instance, what has Rafe Judkins been doing?

We’ll take a look at his life post-island life. An article from Heavy will help us.

Judkins was a gay Mormon wilderness guide who competed on Survivor: Guatemala. He was strong on the strategic portion of Survivor with Stephenie LaGrossa. Judkins was the last person voted out by eventual winner Danni Boatwright after giving her permission to do so after she won the final immunity challenge.

He doesn’t have a lot of fans from Survivor competitors. But Judkins has had a successful career in the television industry. He recently took part in a Reddit AMA and talked about his new Amazon series, The Wheel of Time.

‘Survivor’ Contestant Headed Out To Los Angeles For A Screenwriting Career

What did he do after Survivor? He moved to Los Angeles for a screenwriting career. His first job was as a script coordinator for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in 2005.

Judkins wrote three episodes of the 2008 NBC drama My Own Worst Enemy. He then co-wrote 11 episodes of the NBC show Chuck.

Other work has included Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In 2018, Judkins became a co-writer for the film Uncharted. It will be released in February 2022 and stars Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg.

Judkins has been the showrunner for The Wheel of Time. It’s a new Amazon TV series that’s based on the popular high fantasy book series by the same name.

Fan of CBS Reality Show Asks Judkins If He Watches It To This Day

When he did an AMA last week, one of the fans asked if he still watches the show.

“Sometimes,” Judkins said. “But I’m more hooked on [Australian] Survivor now. It feels more like the original game to me. It basically feels like [American] Survivor is now a competition of who’s good at looking for hidden things in the woods vs. who’s good at throwing things at things in challenges.”

He also said that there were “no regrets” from him about being on Survivor.

“The timing has never worked out with my work,” Judkins said when bringing up whether he’d be open to returning. He would be if asked.

Judkins’ show The Wheel of Time will air on Amazon Prime. First-season episodes will be released each Friday until Christmas Eve.

Meanwhile, Survivor host Jeff Probst took a little time out during Thanksgiving week to say thank you to the show’s fans.

Survivor has been on TV for 20 years and 41 seasons. It can be seen on CBS.

Probst went on Instagram to share and show his deepest appreciation to everyone.
