Coach Benjamin Wade from "Survivor: South Pacific" is one of the contestants on Season 23 of the CBS reality competition series. He starts off the season on the Upolu tribe.

Wade previously competed as part of the Villains tribe on Season 20, "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains." He was the ninth person voted off the island that season, becoming the first jury member. When asked why he came back that time, he said, "Redemption!" Previously, Coach Wade was the 11th out and 5th jury member in "Survivor

Benjamin Wade, more commonly known as "Coach," is returning to Survivor for a third try. "The reception for me, when I step on that beach and am chosen to be on a tribe, I'm just going to kill 'em with kindness." He still owns his eclectic persona that viewers love from previous seasons, but the symphony conductor, men's soccer coach and pastor promises that, "Coach 3.0 is going to be different than any time you've seen him."

Coach believes that it is his experience and his leadership that make him an asset to his tribe, but he's reevaluating his strategy this time around. "I've got to come out here and I've got to be confident but not arrogant, strong but not intimidating, I've got to be humble but not weak, I've got to be honorable but not self righteous."

What does he think of Ozzy, his competition? "He is a great warrior in challenges, he's great at survival, he's going to be a tough competitor on the other tribe."

Wade is known by many names. As the head women's soccer coach at the Southwest Baptist University in Missouri, he was called "Coach Wade," but he also goes by "Maestro" due to role as an artistic director and conductor of a California symphony orchestra. A skilled musician, he was traveling the world playing the trumpet before most kids could even spell "trumpet."

Wade sees coaching as another form of manipulation. "You have to find out what everybody wants, what everybody needs, what they think they want, what think they need and then you have to be the person that solves everything." He knows these skills will be valuable in the game of "Survivor."

If he was asked to wear just one hat, it would be that of "Renaissance Man." Aside from setting the world record for the longest solo kayak expedition on the ocean (an amazing 6,132 miles), he has also been attacked by a tiger shark, stalked by a jaguar in the Amazon and has been bitten by a piranha on his right hand. To say that he is a Type A, Alpha male, who likes to control the environment around him may just be an understatement. His dominant personality will be a force to be reckoned with in the game.

Coach Wade is single and currently lives in Susanville, California.
