He starts out in the Returning Players tribe, while his fiancé Caleb Bankston is in the Loved Ones tribe. Colton is a student teacher currently living in Collinsville, Alabama.

When Colton was asked why he wanted to return to play with his loved one, he said, "I probably wouldn't have said yes to returning if not for this specific twist. Last time I played I was extremely

homesick and missed Caleb like crazy. He is my best friend and probably is the one between the two of us who should've been on Survivor in the first place. While I'm a highly emotional person, Caleb is very logical. He also keeps me calm in stressful situations. Having him with me will give me the emotional stability I need to combine with my already strong concept of strategy."

"Survivor: One World"

Colton was originally one of the contestants in the Manono tribe on Season 24, "Survivor: One World," on which he was the sixth one out after being medically evacuated on day 16 due to illness.

Colton describes himself as adorable, entertaining and opinionated. He enjoys socializing, watching reality TV and writing. His pet peeve is "ugly people who think they're hot."

He says, "I came out as gay when I was 12 years old, sixth grade in South Alabama. My parents definitely did not run out to join Parents of Lesbian and Gay (PFLAG) and it took a long time, but they came around. It was weird at school but I didn't play the victim and run home to cry. I stood up for myself and explained that being gay wasn't who I was but part of who I am."

Who is his inspiration in life? "My nanny/grandmother, who is technically my great aunt, but she and her husband took my mom in when she was 2 months old after her dad abandoned her. My grandmother is the most amazing person I know. She is literally my 73-year-old best friend! She has been there for me through everything, definitely the biggest impact on who I am today."

Which "Survivor" contestant does Colton consider himself to be most like? "As far as my personality goes I would be a mix of Queen Parvati, Corinne and JT. I embody three of their distinctive traits; heartlessness (in a loveable way), low tolerance for trash and that people hate me but still want to be my best friend."

Colton wanted to be a contestant because, "I want to play the game! The strategy, the challenges, I want it all! I don't care about the fame or whether people love or hate me. I would love nothing more than to see my verbally abusive stepdad's reaction when I win a million dollars on national TV." Colton thinks he'll survive on the show because, "I live my life as I if I'm playing 'Survivor'! I have a strategy for everything. Hell, the way I got my boyfriend was a strategy." He believes he will ultimately win because, "I don't believe; I know! There has never been anyone with the social skills and charisma I possess on this show. I'm confident, hilarious, athletic, good looking, adorable and I have good teeth with a hint of Southern charm. What more could you want?"
